    This isn't what is happening to me. I'm not getting any beeping noise. I'm getting dropped audio. It's definitely not a collar or anything hitting the wheel. Thank you for the suggestion though.

    Done. Thank you.

    If it's only happening when closing your helmet etc.. I wonder if its kicking in voice command mode. I think you can adjust the sensitivity in either the phone app, or on the PC. When it does happen, try turning the volume up and might here it repeating "Say a Command" or just say "Cancel" and see if you get audio back?

    Hope SENA can help you out.

    Good thought. I had the same thought and turned off voice command altogether. No change. Thanks!

    Have you tried turning of the touch commands? And also check if you don't activate the bottom switch. This activates the voice control.

    It is recommended to update the firmware on your 20S / 20S EVO to the latest version if you use an iPhone as this update improves the compatibility of the 20S / 20S EVO with the iPhone version of the Sena Utility App.

    My battery seems to be playing up. Appears to charge ok but dies straight away. Unit runs fine plugged in but the low battery warning starts up straight away and drives me nuts. Now what?

    IIRC, there are videos on youtube about putting in aftermarket batteries. Wait... found one; there are a few out there. Note that I have not done this myself. Text below the video on the youtube page lists the battery type.



    FWIW, I was an early adopter of the 20S and mine continue to soldier along. I just completed an 1171 mile long weekend ride down into PA to ride fun roads and hang out with friends and my 20S worked flawlessly. I used it primarily for radar detector alerts and spoken directions for following backroads routes I made (sometimes muted, sometimes on). I also have it set up to listen to (iPod) music from the same BT transmitter that sends the V-1 signal, but I never turned it on this ride.

    I had a similar problem. Contacted Sena and they replaced the unit for free.

    seems the Sena guys have abandoned support for the SMH10 when using with iOS 13
    quite a long thread on Sena support forum, but crickets from the guys at Sena
