    Noob question on Phone to bike

    Hey guys,  About to pull the trigger on a new TTSE and have some bluetooth questions before I fund the purchase.

    I intend on getting a Garmin Zumo 595 with the Triumph mount and hard wire it into the bikes audio system.

    With that said, I assume I can pair my phone to the bike then pair the bike to my Sena 20s Evo.

    With this setup when a phone call comes in will i see caller I.D. on the Trophys display and can I accept or reject the call using the bikes controls?

    I may be wrong, but I think you can only receive calls paired that way.  As far as I know the only way you could make calls, if that's a consideration for you is to have the phone paired directly to the Sena.  I know that will work, but I don't have a gps hard wired into the bike and just use the audio paired to the helmet and both functions work like Sena describes.

    Hi Craigmri,

    Yes ! - If the Callers number is in your Mobile Contacts list
    you should see their name appear on the Trophy Display
    if not you will just see the Phone Number appear.

    You will then have options to "Accept" or "Reject" the call using the Handlebar buttons.

    Unfortunately you cannot make Calls via this connection using the Handlebar buttons.

    Something else to consider is the Garmin 595 "Smart" features
    ( such as Live Traffic, Live Track etc ) that also needs a Bluetooth connection
    to your Mobile phone - running the Garmin Smart Link App.

    You COULD connect your Phone AND Headset to the Garmin,
    giving you the option to make Phone calls
    ( if you should really want to  :015: ) using the Garmin Interface.

    There are all sorts of connection possibilities and variations -
    I have the same Garmin Device and am still trying to work out
    which is the best configuration for me  :087: !

    Cheers  :821:

    Thank you Trophied and Coconut, this is very helpful!  Yes not being able to dial out could on occasion be a problem as I periodically need to provide wife or friend my whereabouts.  Will have to think of the best pairing config to make that happen.

    Using the "LiveTrack" feature of the Garmin, and the Smart Link App on your Phone,
    you can send them an email link to Track your ride in real time !

    If you need to Phone them, I'd always recommend stopping to do that  :028:

    Coconut,  Excellent info about the Garmin I was unaware of.  As for calling out....With the 20S paired to my iphone I tap one button on the headset and say "Call Wife" and it dials out...Really simple and use that periodically in a pinch.  I take it the Triumph has no voice command capability.

    Coconut,

    Again,  If I have the following:

    phone to Trophy
    Trophy to Sena 20s
    GPS hardwired

    I should be able to pair a second phone directly to Sena.  Since I carry two phones, this might be a solution for me....When I want to dial out I could use the second phone pairing to accomplish this.  Thoughts?

    May be worth a try.  You can definitely pair both phones to the Sena.
