Hi browning,

There are definitely Members that have connected their iPhone 5 to the Trophy - ( 5C or S - not sure ? ).

Can I just check whether you are trying to connect it by Bluetooth as HEADSET 1 or DEVICE 2 ?

Also, you might want to re-visit your Poll which has two identical options to choose : Connect or Connect ?  :087:

Cheers  :821:

Thanks, I got it to connect now, but when I phone my cell the bike asks to ignore and the up and down arrow on the bike switch will not change. When I press the accept button on the bike it shuts off. Yes I have it paired to device 2 but I just cant seem to answer my call on the bike. What do you mean by the Poll?

Possibly the easiest way of checking, would be to try Pairing someone else's iPhone 5 and comparing results.

If theirs works as it should then it could indicate a problem with your particular iPhone,
or if it behaves exactly the same as yours then it may be a compatability issue.

Unfortunately, according thr Audio Manual that I have, compatability is only confirmed up to iPhone 4s,
but then the Handbook was probably writtten befroe the iPhone 5 was released !,
so it may be worth asking your Triumph Dealer if there is an up to date compatability list.

With regards to the "Poll" - There is a Poll at the very top of your post titled "Connectivity" inviting Members to vote.
There are only two options to select from - "Connect" and "Connect" - do you see that when you view your Topic ?
( If it's there "spuriously" and you can't see howi to remove it,
hit the "Report to Moderator" button and add a Note asking for it to be removed  :028: )

Cheers,

I use an iPhone 5 plugged into the USB port for music. I did have it Bluetooth paired to the bike as Device and it happily shows me incoming calls with caller ID on the info panel. But only once was I ever able to use the scroll button to change to accept and take the call. All other times pressing scroll does nothing.

I eventually gave up.

I now use my Zumo 590 to route the calls. The iPhone is paired to that and the Zumo is then also paired to my Autocom headset. I can see and accept incoming calls via the Zumo screen and, when the situation is safe and in dire need I can even initiate calls on the go from the Zumo screen as I can access my full contact list.

If you haven't already got a GPS and are planning one I would recommend the 590 and go this route for this reason as well as many others for recommending the Garmin 590
