Do you like to stay connected to people while you’re motorcycling? I seem to be in an increasingly small number of riders who don’t feel the need to chat to my pillion, other bikes or take phone calls when I’m out and about. Or listen to music while I’m enjoying a ride. If you do enjoy staying in touch, then it makes sense for it to be as quick and easy as possible. And that’s what the new Sena RC3 Three-Button Remote Control is for.
It’s a clip-on device which can be attached to the sleeve of your jacket, or mounted to your motorcycle. Which means you don’t have to add anything to your crash helmet, or fiddle around to try and find the right switch. Because there are only 3 buttons, you can use it with your gloves still on to answer the phone, chat to your pillion or sort your music quickly. And it uses a replaceable lithium-ion battery, so the Sena RC3 Three-Button Remote Control should work for around 5 months at a time, rather than needed recharging or being wired into your bike.
Speaking of wires, the Sena RC3 Three Button Remote Control is Buletooth 4.1 enabled. So it will connect wirelessly to your Sena headset. And it has a range of around 10 metres, which will cope with passengers and other motorcyclists nearby. For instance, when you’re all pulled up in a layby trying to work out where you’re going.
It’s pretty durable as well. The device is water-resistant, and can work at temperatures between -10 and 55˚C. It’s compatible with all the Sena Bluetooth 4.1 Steam Ready-enabled on-bike communicators. And the Sena RC3 Three Button Remote Control costs £47.80.
