Reviving an old thread from a year ago. But it's my thread, so that's ok.

I never did fix this problem, and rode all last year with no aux lights. This year, I'm determined to fix the problem,...

Nope, as far as I know, it can't be done. The phone can only pair to one Sena. I did a trip with my wife with a pair of these, and we had the same issue. She ended up pairing to her phone, and me...

I don't believe there's any way without the dongle. The Zumo 660 streams stereo music to the Sena, so it's pretty good, but you'd have to copy your playlist over to that.
