    Connecting Sena as headset

    Guys, newbie here and need advice in preparation for tonights demo ride.

    I'm considering the purchase of a new Trophy and will demo ride one tonight and would like to evaluate the bikes audio system and how it functions with my Sena SMH-10 headset.  Can I assume I pair the bikes Headset 1 to the Sena using the Phone pairing function on the Sena?

    I read somewhere on the forum that you have to pair a certain way or the sound quality through the headset is poor.  Can anyone instruct me on proper pairing for tonights evaluation?

    Also, is my iphone connected to bike as well as I would like to see caller info on the bikes screen.

    Thanks in advance!

    G'day and Welcome,

    That's how you pair a SMH10 to Headset1. Worry about iPhone pairing later, and enjoy the test ride.

    Hi Craigmri,

    It's as you and Travelling2bob say for pairing the Sena, then Pair your iPhone as "DEVICE 2".

    Note that there is no "HEADSET 2" or "DEVICE 1" - the numbers represent the 2 channels of the Trophy,
    where Channel 1 is for Headsets only, hence "HEADSET 1" while Channel 2 is for Headsets AND other "Devices"
    such as your iPhone, hence "DEVICE 2".

    If it's purely for a Test Ride though I would NOT worry about connecting your iPhone  :110:

    The last thing you want is to be distracted by a Phone call while riding on an unafamiliar machine,
    and there will plenty else to keep you occupied, plus of course you won't be able to talk
    very much on the Phone anyway - due to the huge grin that will be spread right across your face !  :001:

    Enjoy the ride - let us know how you get on, and do'nt forget to take your wallet
    to pay the Deposit when you get back to the Dealer and want to order one !  :028:

    So Craigmri, how did your demo ride go and how did your Sena SMH10 checkout?

    The sales guy and I couldnt get them paired and it was about to rain so I wanted to get my demo ride in before the window of opportunity closed.

    I ended up not purchasing the Trophy.  The deal breaker was the extreme heat on my left shin.  I was disappointed.

    Do you wear MC boots? If not, then I could see that there would be heat generated in that spot.

    If the Sena was already paired with other devices you would have to delete all pairings on it to be able to pair it to a new source, and yes boots, especially any Gore-Tex lined ones will help a lot with the heat.  If anyone would care to check, where you will find the most heat being expelled is just below the top bar of a set of R&G bars, not down low by the pegs.
