    If one of the persons with the SMH10 is in the middle, the SMH5 only is connected to one other and three-way conferencing should work fine. On a recent trip, we had five SMH10s conferenced simultaneously, two of which were the early non-upgradeable versions which are not supposed to be able to do multi-way conferencing.

    +1. I was about to say the same thing. To have a 3 way conversation, it only takes one of the SMH10's to be able to host 2 others. So one of those could easily be an SMH5 or an older SMH10. I know we've had the older SMH10's synced in on a group conversation.

    slartidbartfast, thanks for sharing your ability to do a 5 way conversation. I wondered if you could do this by daisy chaining them together like that.

    Sorry if this is a stupid redundant question. I am have a Scala 4 and want to use my own Shure ear buds and not the OEM helmet speakers. I say a Sena unit at a show and the sales rep said you can simply plug your own ear-buds into the unit and lose the helmet speakers. I am assuming that this is the MP3 Jack or is there a built in dedicated jack on the Sena that the Scala does not have?

    Sena have a replacement helmet clamp for when you wish to use in-ear buds.

    Is that an additional cost or an option at purchase.? There site is not indicating any such option at least not in an obvious way. Should be a no brainer. There are people tearing apart and re-wiring their Scala's to eliminate the bad speakers. New versions of all these should include a jack for in ear's..

    Agreed!

    There's clearly a need/requirement for those of us that want to use in-ear or custom moulded so why not include it from the off....no wait, it may be a way to get more money out of us by sliding in an 'upgrade' a few months down the line like they did with the original... :pissed

    It is not an upgrade. it is another version of their product, which is available in several configurations to fit your needs. A fixed boom mike, unattached mike, Speakers or earbuds. You choose. Get the one you need.

    The Sena SMH10, this thread, and the customer support at SENA are all awsome. I have had my Sena unit for over a year now. I have an iPhone and a Zumo 550. I never could get it to work correctly with all devices synced so I went back and got info from here and the manual. The problem was I could hear my music and use the phone but not the Zumo. I followed the advise here and in the manual and could get both to work once until I would power off.
    Contacted SENA and they have me listening to tunes, talking on the phone, and getting voice prompts from the Zumo. Had to clear all devices from both the Sena and the zumo and iphone. Did a factory reset. Did a firmware install. Followed the syncing instructions from the customer service (which was different from the manual) and success!!! :clap

    this is a big one here. Worth pointing out so other people searching problems sees it.

    Every time you upgrade the firmware, you MUST clear ALL devices from BOTH the SMH10, phone (and SR10/SM10 if you use them.).

    Be interested in seeing the pairing instructions they gave you. remember, next time you do a firmware update or get a new Iphone, you are going to need those directions again, hope you wrote them down. :deal

    Ok. Here it goes.
    After making sure everything is updated with the latest firmware, clear all devices and the Sena from recognition.
    Hold the phone button down for 12 seconds until the voice prompt says "resetting unit". Hit the phone button again within 3 seconds. It will then power down.
    Turn unit on. Hold phone button down for 5 seconds and here the phone pairing prompt. Pair the Sena and phone. Hold the jog dial down for 5 seconds and here the device pairing prompt. Pair the Zumo. Then your done. When you cycle everything on the next time, the Zumo connection is prompted as "device connected".

    The jog dial is used for pairing the Zumo but not for operating the Zumo. The Sena is used to hear voice prompts from the Zumo but that is all. Do not pair the Zumo to the iPhone or vise versa.

    Well, if its just a standard XM/Sirius radio, just about everyone of them has an audio jack for a 3.5mm plug. Off ebay, you can buy one of the cheap A2DP BT transmitters and that will give you BT music to your Sena. There are some Garmin GPS's that incorporate XM/Sirius into them, but you didn't mention that.

    Just found it and it is a 35 dollar or so additional piece for the ear-bud option. You have to buy the base unit and then add the other piece. No biggie. At least the offer it and you don't have to rewire it like the Scala
