Passenger hear GPS instructions?

If a passenger and I were both using SMH10 units, and I paired an SR10 with my SMH10 unit and connected a GPS (Garmin Montana) to the SR10, I would be able to hear GPS instructions from the Montana. Is there a way to set this up so that the passenger can also hear the GPS instructions as well?

Nope, the SR10 only can pair to one Headset at a time. The SM10 can pair to two headsets at one time, but then you are using your A2DP connection for both of you which takes up your only music connection on each of your SMH10 headsets. Now if you wanted to share your music and pump that in through the SM10, that could work for you

When I ride with my wife or nephew, I turn the intercom on full time. Plus I have my Montana hooked to my SR10, which is connected to my SMH10. I am pretty sure when the montana talks, I will miss what the passenger says if they are talking.

I also think I remember that my nephew was telling me he could hear my montana. It might be that my speakers are loud enough, that my mic pickes up the sound and he hears that.

I just wish the montana would open the audio channel first, then wait 1 or 2 seconds before talking, I always miss the first words of the montana.

I just set up my SMH-10 and SR-10 combo and tried it out for the first time today and have the same problem. I hear "7 miles turn right" instead of "In point 7 miles turn right". Other than that, I'm pretty happy with the setup!

I don't have a montana, so not sure if it has this, but I remember past GPS having an optional "tone" that would ding before giving the instructions. It was pretty annoying and I think they are starting to disappear from GPS's, so it may not have it, but if it does, that would give you an extra second or two for the SR10 channel to open up.

I have emailed the montana team about this, but got no reply.

I've submitted a Support Case on it, but recieved a reply to suggest it at http://www8.garmin.com/contactUs/ideas/. Probably won't go anywhere.

I did check that I do have the tones enabled as well, which I did.

On a side note, I'm looking to just leave the SR10 under the seat. It would be great if it would just switch on with the bike so I don't have to lift the seat each time I get on as well as remember to charge the unit. It seems that the Cigarette Lighter plug will switch the unit on/off with a switched circuit on the bike. I can wire in a female cigarette plug, but for a cleaner install, can I cut the USB port off the cigarette plug (or the USB / Data cable?) that came with the unit and wire the power leads to a switched circuit in my FuzeBlock? Would it also turn the unit on/off w/ the bike power, or is there something special about the Cigarette Lighter plug?

While I'm at it, why are there different part #'s for the SMH-10 and SR10 chargers and data cables???

I was told the 12V Sena cable made for the SR10 turns the unit off when the power goes away. Not sure if it comes on when you apply power, but it would make sense if it did.

this cable is wired different then the standard USB cable.

Right... but I wasn't sure if it's the cable, or the device. For example, I think some portable GPS units will turn on when power is applied (my old StreetPilot III comes to mind, which had an 'Auto Power' setting in the menu). Anywho... I did some experimenting in the garage tonight after wiring in a FuzeBlock. I got a cheap female cigarette plug from Radio Shack and wired it up. Works fine w/ the SENA cigarette power cable - turn the bike on, power is applied to the circuit, and SR10 comes on. I then swapped the cigarette power cable for the USB cable and a USB cigarette power adapter. This will charge the SR10 (red light comes on), but won't trigger it to come on. So, now, I'm wondering it there's something in the plug end, or just an extra pin in the USB mini-jack. Revzilla has the cables for $5, so maybe the next time I order something from them, I'll splurge and get the cable, cut the plug off, and see if it'll work wired direct. It'll go a long way towards cleaning up the wires under the seat.

A lot of USB chargers use only Pin 1 and 4, this is where the 5 volts for charging sits. Apple also puts resistors across the data lines (pins 2 and 3) in the charger. Different resistor values put different voltages across the data pins. Depending on the voltage drop, the device being charged (iphone, iPad, etc.) knows if it is hooked up to a 500mA iPhone Charger or the 1200mA iPad charger. The device is then able to set how fast it will draw the current. This is why Apple products will not charge on some of the genereic chargers. No voltage drop across the data pins, no charging. This is probably done to protect the charger and the device.

The same kind of thing could be happening with the Sena units. There could be resistors in the charger letting the Sena device know what kind of charger it is plugged into. The generic charger won't have those resistors, and while it will still charge, won't turn on since it may just be plugged into a wall charger.

A lot of generic charging units are using a 200 ohm resistor across the data pins or just shorting them together, now.

Forgive me if I am mis-reading this. Are you talking about cutting the cigarette lighter adapter off of the charging cable, then wiring the cable straight to the 12v fuse block on your motorcycle? You will fry the Sena if you do this. All USB connection are 5V. The adapter is more than just a plug, it lowers the voltage.

No, you read that right, I just didn't think it all the way through.

Maybe what I'll do then is just wire up another female cigarette adapter or 2. Then I can use 1 for the SR10 w/ the factory cord, and have a couple more for whatever I need in the future.

Sena seems to have released the SR10i

http://www.senabluetooth.com/products/sr10i.php

However they're pretty unclear on what the difference is. Anyone have any ideas?

I saw that a couple of weeks ago. As far as I can tell, the only difference is the package contents. The non-'i' seems to include more accessories (PTT button, etc...).

Anyone know if there's an extension cable that will work with the SR10's headset jack? I just got the Kenwood cable (dual-pin) and I don't think the 9" is going to cut it as far as reaching the SR10 that's under my seat.
