I upgraded from 3 to 4 and it was definitely worth it... then again I ride with a couple of other riders, so the 4-way intercom is great. Haven't upgraded beyond 4.0 yet, but according to the release notes, it might be worth it.. I listen to music a lot when I ride alone and use the intercom a lot when I ride with friends.

X2. There have been a few other threads popping up with Sena pricing in the Vendors section, but I highly, highly recommend buying here. I haven't comparison shopped, but I can't imagine any others are able to beat his prices by much, and the customer service is OUTstanding.

Tried to read through the instructions, and did not see anything on how to use the mic. boost. Not sure if that is auto or do I have to press some buttons?

Adam and Rocketmoto Rock!

i'd been looking at options for a headset so i could take calls on my bike when on trips if necessary (If my son needs me, i like to be there 24/7). And of course i found this thread nearly too late before my planned Outer Banks trip. I called Adam and spoke with him about helmet concerns and time left to ship the headset, and he was AWESOME! Amazing customer service and attention to detail! I ordered the unit, they shipped it that day and it was here in 2 days.
Set up was a breeze, especially with his helpful hints and suggestions during our conversation. The unit worked flawlessly with my iphone. My son said it didn't even sound like i was on a bike when we talked :)
Thanks Adam! I am extremely happy with your service and the headset!

Question about SM10

Hi Adam,
Is the SM10 something that can be buried out of sight and forgotten about?

I have a Montana GPS. I use the SMH10 for audio from my iPhone. Can I run a cable to the SM10, from the GPS? The SM10 would live somewhere under my seat, receiving power from a switched source of course.

I'm hoping it will just magically all work. Down the line, could I add the adaptiv radar detector if I decide to buy one to the mix?

Thanks

No expert, but this page indicates that is pretty much exactly what the SM10 should do. Note the bottom balloon for connections shows a GPS receiver connected to the SM10. The unit also seems to only have a power switch - so no controls to worry about, once things are paired, I suppose.

All supposition on my part, since I haven't but 4 SHM10 units now (!) but it sure looks like you would be good to go.

Yeah, I saw that. You came to the same conclusion I did. I just want confirmation that I don't have to go through the pairing rigamarole everytime. I want it to act like its plugged in with no nonsense or drama.

Jim:

The SM10 can live under the seat or in a fairing pocket. It's intended to run on an internal rechargeable battery, and affix to the handlebar. An optional cigarette lighter plug is available. Now, since Sena never asked me how this product should be designed, there are a couple of things about running it under the seat. First, you may need to play with the location to insure good Bluetooth reception between headset and SM10 - not a big deal.

The power switch is a slide on/off arrangement, not a 'soft switch' like on the SR10 2-way radio adapter. We can modify the cigarette plug into a very neat arrangement for connecting direct to bike power. This is better for a hidden install. Only thing is that when the bike power is switched off, the SM10 will continue to stay on from the internal battery until it's exhausted. The SR10, OTOH switches off when bike power is turned off - again, not a biggie.

The SM10 includes a couple of 3.5mm audio leads. These are coiled and about 20" long, stretched. If you power the SM10 from the bike, and your GPS or radar is powered from the bike, you need a ground loop isolator between audio device and SM10, and plugs that into a 3.5mm coupler, ala Radio Shack. We have both mono and stereo Autocom ground loop isolators that'll work. You'll need these (or similar) to eliminate ground hum, alternator whine and possible damage to one device or the other.

Make sense?

Absolutely makes sense. Thanks Adam. Now to decide if I really want to open this can of worms
If I was to choose to park it in a tankbag, powered by the onboard powerlet style socket on my Triumph does that still require a ground loop isolator? Seems like a simpler route. Yes?
