France - For the 99th Tour de France, Team Garmin used a radio solution from Riedel Communications. The specialist for real-time communications and media networks installed a combination of conventional trunked radios and NanoTalk for enabling team communication for Garmin.

More than 12 vehicles of Team Garmin, who won this year's Giro d'Italia, were equipped with a MOTOTRBO radio solution enabling communication between the individual vehicles. MOTOTRBO provides conventional trunked radio and is the solution for any application that requires high quality of speech transmission. Long battery power cycles and the integrated GPS module make MOTOTRBO radios a suitable solution for applications such as the Tour de France.

In addition to the digital radio network, Team Garmin used NanoTalk radios for the communication between vehicles and cyclists. NanoTalk is an extremely small radio that has been especially developed for applications such as pro-cycling. The radio can be easily attached to the cyclist's helmets and provides trouble-free communications. A special branding of the radios offered advertising space for the Austrian Ă–tztal region.
