Since I hold a FCC Amateur Radio License, I used my Kenwood TH-F6 Handie-Talkie, which will also operate on the 462Mhz FRS freqs. But any FRS transceiver should work, as long as you can find the throat mic system. Once you have all 3 pieces, cut the mic part off of the throat mic, you don't need it. All you want is the PTT switch, the MIC/SPKR connector, and cabling. Open up the Jabra, and unsolder the 4 wires that lead to the connector (you MUST have a very nice soldering system cause we're talking about small stuff here). The Jabra has Audio In, 2 gnds, and Audio Out. If I re-call the 2 center connections were gnd, the one on the left was audio in, and the one on the right was audio out. Take a ohm meter and figure out which wire in the throat mic is audio in, gnd, and audio out. Then simply solder the wires to the correct pads in the Jabra. If you don't want to open the Jabra up, you could wire a 2.5mm female plug to the throat mic cable, but I like the direct connection method. The PTT switch just sticks to a piece of Velcro on my left grip. Pair the Jabra to the Sena, and your finished... It took me about 15 minutes to do the complete job.
Thanks for this tidbit. This definitely makes it much more doable to get a 2 way radio to work with a BT headset. I'm just not sure about the soldering bit, but I'm sure I've got some buds that could help. Now off to do some searching.

Here's a place advertising the Sena's for ~$270 per PAIR.

I have no experience with this vendor, just passing along a link sent to me by a friend.

My indecisiveness and waiting around has finally paid off.

This is embarrassing, and I do apologize.

I did look, before i posted. They do have a number, it's just hidden a couple levels down.

SENA bluetooth intercom

I bought one of the SENA SMH10 Bluetooth intercom interphones last week and it is incredible. The best price i could find online was $159.99 for the Single and $269.99 for the DUAL. I bought them at www.MrHit.com

I'm very interested in the Sena, but I've been waiting to see what Webbikeworld.com has to say about the Sena vs the Cardo Scala G4 after their comparison testing. For those on the other end of a phone call, is the noise suppression quality on the Sena as good as the G4? Not that I plan to make many calls anyway. Is the capability of the G4's firmware to be updated a huge advantage?

Right now, it sounds like the "easy of use knob" on the Sena - and the beefier, louder, better quality speakers - are the potential advantages of the Sena over the G4 - and cost. The RocketMoto deal is hard to pass up - I just don't want to regret not getting a G4 if it is better.

Anyone have experience with both - care to weigh in?

Can't speak for the G4, but with the Sena I have had no problems communicating at 70 MPH connected to my old Motorola RAZR

Just a bit on the volume potential of the Sena. Last week I was stopped in traffic waiting on a train. I had the volume turned all the way up on my Sena as I had my earplugs in and would be on the interstate soon. Parked next to me was a coworker, also on a bike wearing a full face helmet and wearing earplugs. My wife called and as I was stopped, I answered. My coworker could hear her speaking through my speakers, from 6-8 ft. away through his own helmet and earplugs.

If the Sena isn't loud enough for you, you're deaf.

Question Sena and MP3 player via intercom question.

Just need some clarification:
Can I connect my IPOD and have both rider and passenger listen to the same audio source?

If not, can rider and passenger and have independent ipods yet still use the intercom function?

Will the unit lower volume automatically when intercom is activated?

I'm coming from an autocom active plus and want to make sure I'm making the right upgrade. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Rob
