    I am slightly confused with bluetooth options

    I am contemplating a pair of UClear or Sena bluetooth communicators.

    I will figure out the device later. But here is my question
    I currently have my phone paired with the bike. I am able to listen to my internet radio through the bike speakers. The other day a call came in and couldn't figure out how to dismiss it, but that is a different issue.

    For those that have bluetooth helmets. What configuration do you use

    1. Helmet to helmet?
    2. Both helmets to the bike?
    3. Main helmet to the bike and then helmet to helment?
    4. My bike has a fix mounted Zumo 660 GPS, does it play through the bike?
    5. Can both helmets hear the bike's radio/xm/weather/gps/usb?

    There's a wide range of connection options, depending on what you want to achieve,
    bit to answer a couple of your questions :

    Page 42 of the Audio Manual deals with answering an Incoming Call :
    An incoming call will be identified in the centre display screen.
    You can choose to answer or ignore the call.
    The lower display area will show the phone number or caller name.
    Press the SCROLL button up or down and select ANSWER or IGNORE
    Press the SELECT button to make the selection.
    The call volume can be adjusted in the headset
    using the VOL+ and VOL- buttons on the audio switch unit.
    Press the SELECT button to make the selection.
    Press the PRESET button to end the call.

    There is a dedicated Audio connection for the Zumo which allows it's
    audio to be permanently selected as a "Source", or will interrupt other audio sources
    to make a Sat Nav announcement.

    There are plenty of Topics about this search for "Dedicated Audio Socket"

    Cheers  :821:

     This applies to sena 20 s and it works I just received  Email from sena  and this config works the best for me. [  Phone pared to Garmin 660  /  sena20s pared to Garmin audio /  sena 20s under media selective paring to trophy device 2 .]

     There are other ways , this config will let phone calls come in on garmin there you have have finger tip control to take or ignore calls  phone calls are priorty, music will play from bike and turn by turn will also be heard GPS priority over

     music. this configuration will also eliminate the   

     beeps you get between riders when Intercom is being used . I have not done anything with my wifes unit other than conversation between us there are more options there . You need to be patient with blue tooth options they work but are

     somewhat limited because of there size . I have read the manual several times and I'm still making changes but the above hookup works great. sorry for the way this is typed it took me 20 min. to do this .

    Have you tested to see if you can talk to the caller?

    Apparently not I can answer call and  then get feed back from my voice in the speakers of helmet so I will go back to pairing bike with second phone paring which always worked fine for me but the guy I ride with is always complaining  of the beeps he gets from my turn by turn directions which would be from intercom disconnect although I have found a setting in sensitivity overlay that I can lower this should help.

    I suspected not... so I haven't tried this yet (lack of time) but as I posted in another thread, I'm pretty sure I read on another forum for another bike that if you block the audio out pin on the Garmin cradle (or probably just disconnect the audio out 3.5mm plug on the left side behind the storage box), the Garmin will output all audio and take input to/from your connected headset. The Sena will drop the music from the bike for you with its audio multi-tasking feature while NAV directions are being read. Somewhere on the forum here, the pinout of the Garmin cradle is posted. A simple tiny piece of electrical tape should be enough to block the audio out contact on the cradle. I will be off work end of this week/start of next week, so I might finally have time to try this if you don't get to it first.

    Please let us know if that works. I'd switch to the Garmin if I could answer and make calls that way. By routing both the phone and headset through the TTSE, you can answer calls through the bike but you can't initiate them.
