One additional observation: battery life seems to be a bit less for the "bridge" unit, so if you have a mix of Sena models (such as two SMH-5s and one SMH-10 in my case), make the beefier SMH-10 the...

Thanks -- I can't believe I didn't think of the lunch stop idea. Fabricating a cable for that should be a lot easier than trying to jury-rig a usable helmet connection.

Aux power for the SMH-10?

Last year on a long (nearly 4k miles) trip, my SMH-10 intercom performed beautifully and lasted for many hours. But I finally managed to out-ride the battery one day and naturally it crapped out just...

No offense taken; it may not be a useful feature for you.

I find that people often over-modulate signals by speaking too loudly into mics and too close to them. I'm not immune from that myself....

I don't see it affecting phone battery life at all -- it's a feedback circuit from the Sena mic to its speakers.

I'm not certain, but I don't think that reset removes pairings on the SR-10 (it definitely does not on the SMH-10). On the SMH-10 you should use the function menu to delete pairings.
