Bluetooth Connection to Phone
« on: December 16, 2015, 04:19:17 pm »
Just want to confirm that while you can receive calls with a phone Bluetooth-connected to the bike, you can NOT place calls. Is that correct? If so, seems like kind of a large oversight.

Are you using a headset (Sena) ?

Are you using Android (Google Now) or Apple (Siri) ?

You can make it work depending on what you are using as per above.... but if you are talking about simply the Phone BT to bike - there is no keypad to dial out through the bike functions - not sure I know of a bike that can do that....

Most bluetooth helmet headsets will have voice control to dial someone. Why on earth would you call someone while riding is questionable in my opinion though!?

Yes, through the bike... headsets don't have keypads either, but you can call out with them; seems to me that it wouldn't take all that much to have made some speed dial memory like with radio stations.

I have a Sena 20s, and yes, with the headset, I can call out, but I don't know the number of incoming calls and I don't answer the phone unless I know who it is; having the phone paired to the bike allows me to see that. I wonder if I can still call out via the headset with the phone paired to the bike rather than directly to the headset. I doubt it, but I'm going to try and see what happens.

I know some people consider making phone calls while on a bike to be dicey. Everyone does their own thing. I call my wife every day on the way home from work. Where I call from, the traffic is usually moving around 5-10mph, so it's not a big deal, but even if it were heavy and/or fast, I don't find the added cognitive load of making a call any higher than tuning the radio.

My N-com system has a favourite number redial which is set to my home number, so I press it once and it automatically dials home. A great idea. Do others have the same function?

Let's see:
To report a dangerous driver /  hit and run, to make a hotel reservation, to order pizza, to tell your family your OK but running a little behind schedule, to set up an unscheduled appointment for service at a dealer, to order a new tire before end of business day. To call AAA

Gee Glen, seems to be no shortage of reasons to call IMO

I dont BT the Phone to Headset - only to bike -

Incoming calls show on display this way - you can call out by tapping phone button (rear button for radio)

I just tried turning on VOX on headset - in garage it seemed to work that way a couple times yes and a couple times no - I need to play with that more when I get more time - this way no buttons to push on 20S at all...which is also get quick info / directions from phone rather than typing into GPS
