Sure, as long as your phone will allow "selective pairing." In other words, if you can tell it to do HFP only, that leaves the A2DP slot open on the SMH10. A riding pal does this with his Android phone.

I'd offer to swing by and help, but it may be a while until my next visit to family in Charleston (great town).

Yes, there is a way to do "selective pairing".

I have my Crackberry paired with the SMH10 for phone
I have my Cowon MP3 player paired with the SMH10 for Stereo.

Edit: My crackberry does not provide setting to selective pair. But if you follow the SMH10 manual, the blackberry is ONLY paired as phone to the SHM10
the blackberry might try to connect with AD2P, but the SHM10 never allows it.

Yes it works.

Android later then 2.2 definitely allows you to do "selective" pairing for HFP only. I have done this myself and it works fine. You can select in the menu under the BT device only to do phone only and it won't try to connect for music which leaves that profile open.

As the OP said, it looks like Blackberry's allow this also.

From what I have read, this doesn't work well with iPhones.

Here's my "scorecard" so far on selective pairing [g]:

zumo 660: ain't not gonna happen no way, unless Garmin changes something.

iPhone 4: can be tricked into doing it under some circumstances, but not reliable and a huge PITA if it fails to reconnect once paired, forcing you to go through the whole pairing procedure from scratch.

YMMV as they say.

I have a DuraXT. When I tell it to connect it offers 3 options, Music + phone, music only, phone only. So, looks like it offers selective paring.

Broken earbud thingy again. I'm on my 3rd one. I don't abuse it, but I don't baby it either. The one I have now is the latest flexible version. I'm not going to bother warranteeing this one. It just takes too long for that through Sena and I doubt it'll be a solution.

I remember someone putting some goop of some sort on theirs but I can't find it. Somewhere in one of these threads. Yes. I realize it will void my warranty, but I don't have the patience to wait a month for a replacement! Does anyone know what that product was? It seemed ideal.

Another thought I had is some plastic JB Weld.

Is it failing right at the earbud socket area, or higher up, just below the contacts "window"?

If the latter, be very careful how much you tighten the mounting screws. The curvature of some helmets puts a lot of strain on that part of the clamp and you either have to fill in the gap behind the clamp or use minimum torque on the bolts to avoid a stress crack. This happened with the standard clamp on my Shoei RF-1000.

I found it. The conversation starts around post 1738. The suggestion in the thread is "Sugru". I need to try this myself as I broke my first clamp right where it connects and just got a 2nd clamp with the earbud, but its still the old style. My broken one still works, but it hangs straight down and has exposed the wires, so probably won't last long using it like that.

If you have the new style, hopefully it lasts longer. That looks like a much better design.

Here is the manufacture link - https://sugru.com/buy

Mine broke right where the green arrows are pointing at here like someone else posted


Here's a pic of Pete's setup and it does look much stronger.

There was nothing on the packaging or on the unit itself that shows any type of Rev or Version #. The model # on the end-flap of the box shows "SMH-A0303-1204000126"

Where does the mounts crack if you don't have the ear bud system?

On one of mine, if you remove the SMH10, and look at the plate where the angle is (hidden by the bottom of the SMH10 when installed) and mine is starting to show a white line, which indicates to me it's getting ready to break.

I haven't seen any pics of the bases cracking, but I've heard of it. I think as Adam has pointed out in the past, many people over tighten the clamp, especially on certain style helmets.

Just tighten the clamp enough to keep it from moving, but that's it. Or use the 3M one which shouldn't bend it as much.

I saw first hand how this can happen though when I put a clamp on a buddies helmet. I can't remember now which helmet it was, but it had the clamp at such an angle, I couldn't even get the unit off the clamp without loosening up the clamp each time. I was making sure to keep it just barely secured, but I still couldn't get it off without loosening everything up. I was glad my helmets aren't that style as that would drive me nuts.

So you still were using the old one? I know rockmoto mentioned sometime back in this thread that they were sending out the new ones.

Was that to me? Yes my first one was the older design. It came with a headset I had purchased.

And yes the 2nd one I just got is the same old design, but it wasn't bought new. A friend bought a used set of SMH10's which included 2 of these earbud bases in new condition and he gave one to me since he said his wife wouldn't use the other one.

I figure I'll try the Sugru route this time and if that doesn't work next time I'll order a new one with the strain relief built in.

It cracks just below the bottom edge of the rubber gasket that protects the contacts in the clamp, just above the "shelf" that is the lower part of the clamp assembly and says "SENA Bluetooth" on it.

Two things contribute to this (or at least did in my case): bolts too tight, and pulling on the top edge of the detachable unit when trying to remove it. Better to unlatch it and let it pop out a little before putting any outward force on it.

Yep. That's the goop. I'm gonna give it a try.

Mine did break right at the point your pointing at. Again.
