No problem, they really are the dogs danglers in intercom systems, and not a lot of money. I would say 90% of all powerboat racers use them!

Greytronics are indeed very popular with racers but it is not thier primary business so they do not prioritize the racing leisure intercoms and if you can get a system with interfaced VHF you're doing better than me!

Gecko are also in the process of developing thier own system with a built in camera! (it was at the boat show but not released to the public yet?)

Geko's system is going to be well over 500 per helmet, allbeit including said helmet. I asked them at the boat show.

Daniel you are correct have looked at the prices on their site about 450.00/helmet I think.
I cannot believe that there is no one that makes cheaper systems.
May be in the US. These things cannot cost that much. The material is made in Taiwan for Goodness Sake

I'm not sure which part they don't offer, a 3-way system, a VHF interface, or intergration with my Geko helmets - i'll report back when i find out.

Bleedin ell, I can't imagine what has happened at Graytronics. I bought a system from them a few years ago, and it only cost a few hundred pounds. Looks like they aren't built in the guys shed anymore.

I shall be deleting them off my PDA, PDQ !!!!
