    Cardo Scala Rider SHO-1
    Single set

    Cardo SHO-1 - modular Bluetooth communication system especially for Shoei helmets*
    (single set with cable- and hybrid boom microphone)

    The Cardo SHO-1 is the high-end Bluetooth headset from Cardo and especially developed for Shoei helmets* and the needs of sports oriented drivers. The Cardo SHO-1 also offers many functions, and is a group intercom, stereo Bluetooth headset and RDS FM radio receiver in one. To ensure that you never need to take your hands off the handlebar, almost all the functions are conveniently controllable via voice commands. In addition to the rider-pillion intercom function with a maximum range of 1600 metres and up to 4 users in conference, the new One+8 function enables up to 9 bikers to communicate with each other in toggling mode, and they can even call each other via voice command. A safety bonus is provided by the integral group signal function, which enables you to warn fellow bikers behind you about critical situations ahead. You can use the Cardo Community web portal to individually adapt the Cardo SHO-1, and even plan tours with other users.
    Voice instructions from your GPS sat nav (e.g. TomTom RIDER or Garmin zumo) and phone calls from your Bluetooth mobile phone are forwarded to you direct, in top sound quality. An integral RDS FM radio receiver with 6 programmable station presets perfectly rounds off the wide range of features offered by this high-tech communication device.
    The modular installation kit can be fitted to any Shoei helmet or other compatible helmets and is ready for operation in just a few minutes.

    Geräte-Totalausfall trotz (erklärtem) Tausch aller Komponenten

    Ich hatte mir im Mai 2015 das Cardo SHO-1 für meinen SHOEI-Neotec Helm gekauft, da meine Frau kurz zuvor das SCRS C3 System für Ihren Schubert C3 gekauft hatte. Bis zum September 2016 waren wir mit beiden Geräten zufrieden, dann fast zeitgleich der Totalausfall beider Komponenten. Also hin zur Louis-Filiale - erste Reaktion dort: ...da haben wir noch niiiee Probleme mit gehabt!! Dann nach mehreren Versuchen der Wiederbelebung der Systeme durch den wirklich angagierten Mitarbeiter die Erkenntnis "...müssen wir beide zur Fehlersuche Einschicken".
    Nach erstem Rücklauf war ein Betrieb wieder möglich - aber das Sho-1 regelte die Gesprächslautstärke in katastrophaler Weise. Die ersten ankommenden Worte waren so laut, dass einem die Ohren abfielen um dann umgehend so leise zu werden, dass man nichts mehr hörte. Es folgten intensieve Bemühungen der Fehlerbehebung in der Filiale, dann die Erkenntnis, wir schicken alles wieder zur Reparatur zurück.
    Im März konnte alles abgeholt werden - die Aussage: man konnte die Fehlerursache nicht finden und hat alle Komponenten getauscht - ??
    Alles funktionierte tatsächlich wie damals nach dem Kauf, bis das am 15.06.2017 der Totalausfall des Sho-1 den Kurzurlaub zu einer Motorradfahrt des Schweigens machte. Das Sho-1 ging unvermittelt aus und läßt sich nicht mehr wiederbeleben. Am Ladegerät angeschlossen blinkt zwar die blaue LED, aber sonst erfolgt keine Reaktion. Nach Abziehen des Ladegerätes verharrt das Sho-1 in seiner Totenstarre.
    Also wird sich ein erneuter Weg in die Louis-Filiale nicht vermeiden lassen...wenn mich der damals betreuende Mitarbeiter mit Helm unterm Arm sieht, wird ihm bestimmt das Grauen aus dem Gesicht springen - all seine Bemühungen von Oktober ´16 bis März ´17 waren für die "Tonne".
    Ach so: Das SRCS C3 läuft im Moment glücklicher Weise noch - hoffentlich auch weiterhin.
    Das Sho-1 war für den Preis von rd. 300 € und die Lebensdauer von weniger als 2 Jahren ein Favorit den Titel "Sch... des Jahres"!

    Gut, schlechter Service und zu teuer

    Ich habe mir bereits im März 2014 das Cardo SHO-1 für meinen SHOEI - Neotec Helm gekauft und war bis vor kurzem mit dem Gerät auch zufrieden.
    Nun geht aber gar nichts mehr. Der Akku blinkt beim Laden nur kurz auf und das wars.
    Beim Verbinden des Bedienteils mit dem PC wird das Gerät nicht mehr erkannt. Anfrage bei Cardo Systems USA ... Kabel oder Bedienteil defekt ... Prima!!!
    Keine Möglichkeit, das Gerät mal in München bei Cardo Systems Deutschland überprüfen zu lassen, was überhaupt defekt ist.
    Kontakt per @Mail aufgenommen, aber keine Rückmeldung erhalten.
    Neuer Akku 44,95 €, neues Kabel 17,50 € und wenn ich Pech habe ein neues Gerät für 279,95 €.
    Für nur 3 Jahre Betriebsdauer ziemlich teuere Spaß.
