It looks like there are quite a few dedicated Bluetooth/radio intercom setups out there, for local communication over tens/hundreds of meters while bike touring/motorbiking etc. However these seem to be quite expensive and overlook the fact that most riders are going to have a smartphone on them anyway.
It would seem that an ideal low-cost touring intercom setup might include a Bluetooth earpiece and/or handlebar trigger button that activated some sort of intercom functionality via a paired smartphone, with audio then transmitted to a group/channel via Bluetooth or the phone's data network.
Does anyone have any tips to share regarding this sort of setup and/or devices/apps that might provide it? Or any general tips for low-cost touring voice comms, if I should think outside the box some more? Shouting is always an option, but I feel it could be improved upon.
