Sena 20 S Bluetooth Headset

The Sena 20S Motorcycle Bluetooth Communication System is the latest communication device from Bluetooth leaders, Sena. The Sena 20S features a staggering 1.5 mile range, advanced Bluetooth 4.0 and a built-in FM radio tuner. Stay in contact by calling hands-free on your Bluetooth phone, rock out to your favorite riding jams in stereo or listen to voice instructions of GPS navigators by Bluetooth wirelessly, all the while having conversations in full duplex with a passenger or other motorcycle riders.

The 20S is a state-­of-­the-­art motorcycle and powersports Bluetooth communication system. The unit provides a sleek and aerodynamic design that offers a versatile jog dial that maximizes the ease of use for riders.

Bluetooth 4.0 technology with dual Bluetooth communication modules increases the performance and reliability of the headset while also allowing for increased high definition audio quality.

Sena 20S Bluetooth Headset 3.8 5 96 96
Expensive but worth the price So this is my first Bluetooth, and it was replacing my bose in ear headphones I was using to play music. I first want to say that I was overwelmed by the instructions, but after playing with the bluetooth for awhile I figured things out. Just like others have said, it would be best to update the firmware before even mounting device to your helmet (update only takes about 15 minutes). As for speaker quality, there is very little bass when playing music, but after 20 minutes you'll get used to it and it won't bother you anymore. And speakers can easily drown out wind noise. Fit and finish- it is bulky on the side of my helmet, like sometimes I wear a back pack and when I go to glance over my left shoulder when changing lanes it contacts the backpack strap on my left shoulder, but that is something that I will get used to. I absolutely love the jog dial, it is easy to turn the volume up and down, even with huge winter gloves on. March 19, 2015
Game changer I've had the Sena 20S for about a month, but I feel like I've had enough experience to rave like a madman. BANG FOR THE BUCK: Yeah, you'll drop some coin, but this device significantly changes the mental atmosphere of motorcycle riding. During this past month, I've taken two rides with other Sena owners; one was a 600-mile, ten hour conversation. We talked about everything: "next turn in 2 miles, left on Woodyard Road"; "yeah my daughter-in-law is such a sweetheart ..."; "I'll need to stop for gas sometime in the next 15 miles". The other was terse ("Moving left two lanes. Ya'll cool?") but an effective way to lead a group through downtown Atlanta interstates. Other rides have been full of music, college baseball on the radio, and my sexy GPS voice reminding me that I need to turn in ¼ mile. EASE OF INSTALL: Screwed on the plate (piece of cake) and stuffed connecting wires under my helmet liner. Done. I elected to use the boom mike in my full-face hat, and installed two "lifts" under the speakers to ensure they're flush against my ears. DURABILITY: Had it a month. Don't know. Can't adjust the rating to zero once I've touched the slider scale. SOUND CLARITY: Varies a bit with speed, road surface. audio source, and surrounding traffic. I'm sure it varies with how much wind noise is generated by your helmet. On country roads, I get music loud enough to be painful, while the 70-mph run through the city produces ambient sound levels loud enough to almost overwhelm the Sena. Seems that the music from my iPhone is louder when controlling it directly through the phone, rather than initiating music via the Sena. EASE OF USE: Gave it a 5 because the controls are easily manipulated. Caveat is that there are so many control sequences ("push this once, twist two spots, and press-and-hold for 3 seconds ...") that I can't remember them all. Fully confident that I'll commit to memory the ones I use often, however. To mate with another Sena, you press and hold for 12 seconds, then press once again for one second. How easy is that? Haven't tried it with other brand headsets. SUMMARY: After only a month, the Sena has become essential gear. While technically not a piece of ATGATT, I cannot imagine a buddy or group ride without it. Ever again. Yes, I recommend the Sena 20S very highly. March 19, 2015
Sena 20S I just purchased this unit to go with my Sena Prism camera. I'm just starting to get up to speed with all the features. It could be a little eaiser to use for us non tech savy guy's. Bluetooth has always been a challange for me in some ways. I did my first video this weekend and I'm happy with the end result. I'm going to buy a second Sena 20S unit so I can use when riding with friends. I'm very happy with the 20S so far. I would recommend this product. March 18, 2015
Sound is very good. Contact with another rider is very clear. I installed my Sena 20s on my new helmet. The directions were good for the installation. The speakers did not fit in the helmet recesses. I used my rotary tool to remove some of the plastic from the speaker edge. Then removed some plastic from the edge of the helmet recess which let the speaker fit down into the helmet recess. This was the only installation problem I encountered. The Sena connected with my Smartphone just fine and I was able to listen to music loaded on my phone. The sound was clear. I could hear the music very nicely even at speed on the interstate. Connected my Sena 20s with my friends Sena 10. We encountered some difficulty getting the units to connect. We found we needed to be a little more patient and hold the connection longer. Once the units were connected, they worked wonderfully. We were both very impressed with the quality of the connection and the clear sound. March 16, 2015
Cool Bluetooth... The system is over all great, the only thing I would say is that there is almost no Bass and this should be the unit that has the best bass to it. Quality seems to be great, easy to charge and use while on the bike. It does stick out a bit from the helmet but this is kinda good cause you can quite easy find it on your helmet, so ease of use is a plus. March 10, 2015
Awful Experience...Returned it same day Let me cut to the chase...I was unable, after 2 hours, to get the 20S to update its firmware. Instructions were cryptic, incomplete sentence, non-intuitive and confusing. The Sena Device Manager instructed me to send an email to tech support for help. Huh??? Email. How about a phone number for tech support like every other company on the planet, even the bad ones, offer? But I did as I was asked and sent the email. An hour later, I was chomping at the bit and attempted to see what my help request status was (like..how much longer do I have to wait?) There's a very convoluted log in process to do this and I was unable to complete it. Couldn't find a Tech Support phone number on the website and GAVE UP. Rev Zilla was very understanding and in spite of their "No Returns For Electronics" mandate, I was allowed to return the 20S. That was yesterday. Tonite, I got an email from Sena advising me that they'd be ready for a phone call with me tomorrow...three days later. If this is somebody's idea of a "world class customer experience" I'll eat my hat. I really wanted this to work. I really did. I had visions of Bluetoothing my iPhone and playing music while I intercom'd with my riding buddy. But I simply will not accept this kind of experience in a premium priced product. No sir, I will not. February 26, 2015
Great upgrade! I upgrade from the Cena S10 and I have to say it was the best investment I could have made. A lot easier to use with gloves on and the new clip on feature ensures that it won't get blown off. (S10 didn't hold to well) The sound is a bit clearer but the best new effect is the integration of Radio and multiple devices. Great product! Well worth the money! February 25, 2015
Great bluetooth device Great product, easy install easy to use features. Very pleased. Thanks REVZILLA........ January 27, 2015

ellen j: My son requested it for his birthday. He is a very thorough researcher so I am certain that this is an excellent product. Oct 18, 2014
Trenton W: I don't have this in my hands to test yet but for other shoppers, this seemed like the best option on the market according to reviews. Especially with the ability to pair with other brand devices. You don't get that with any other device and there are so many options for people to purchase now days that you need this option.

I see potential new updates coming out in the future to fix current firmware issues. I am up for dealing with currents problems that have been reported until that time.
Sep 22, 2014

Charles J: I already Had one and enjoyed it so much i bought one for my dad as a birthday present. Sep 17, 2014
Jason R: Owned the earlier Sena version and was so happy with it that I had to upgrade. The new one has better positioned connectors (on the bottom, instead of on the side), so hopefully they wont get water in them and quit working like the old ones did. The voice commands are also great- I don't have to touch the device for most control actions. FM radio reception leaves some to be desired, but at least it is available. Sep 10, 2014
Aderonke A: Going on a bike ride soon, want to communicate with other riders Sep 9, 2014

Kyle C: I wanted to be able to talk and listen to music with out having to have ear buds in Jul 11, 2014
Che-Chuen H: I love the Sena SMH-10. However, it's a bit inconvenient to have to switch out of a conversation to listen to GPS directions. Enter the 20S. I can't wait to test the "audio multitasking" feature that will solve this minor inconvenience in the SMH-10. I also like the external mic feature to listen to exterior conversation & sounds with the helmet on. Really looking forward to test and review this unit! Jul 11, 2014

Tom T: my sena 5 is weak and I need the ear bud plug this one has. Apr 9, 2014
tom m: Based upon the recommendations for the 10 model line, this next gen system, which has built-in ear-bud connectivity and claims to pare with non-Sena brand products (for my buds who have other gear)....has the "jog-dial" in a less obtrusive package. Pricey, but if it's got improved sound quality too, which it claims to have, should be worth it! Apr 7, 2014
Mark M: Is supposed to work with other brands. Mar 31, 2014
Dustin M: This will be my first Bluetooth Headset. Ultimately I chose this unit from Sena because of the compatibility with the other units out there. Looking forward to testing this thing out. Mar 9, 2014

A shopper asked: Two things… First, are there separate volume controls for the intercom and music? And if so, how does this feature work??
I’m coming from a J&M Bluetooth headset and that was a huge feature for me, having buttons for the Bluetooth volume, and a dial for the rider/passenger intercom (which was corded) so they could be adjusted independently (turn the wife down and the music up for example)
Secondly, (and this is more of a curiosity really) when plugging in earbuds, does the sound cut out on the speakers or do the speakers and earbuds play simultaneously?
Thanks very much for the help!
Nov 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (10) No (0)
Sena B: The volume of the intercom is independently from the volume of the music so adjusting the volume of the intercom does not affect the volume of the music. Secondly, plugging in a pair of 3.5mm earbuds will disable the connected speakers. Dec 8, 2014

Does this, or any BT system, allow for instant communication or does the VOX have a delayed activation? If listening to music with the device is there a delay with the VOX? Thanks. Dec 19, 2013

Tristan R: The 20S has integrated the new features that enable users quicker and easier accessibility while using the unit. Intuitive voice commands have been built into the 20S to ensure riders can maintain handsfree control while riding. The voice commands allow riders to operate functions such as intercom connections, mobile phone calls, music playback control and more without needing to take their hands off of the handle bars.

Another key feature allowing for quicker and easier accessibility is the new interface based on motion sensor technology for easy set-up and pairing. The motion sensor feature allows the pairing of Bluetooth devices with a simple shake of the units. The new feature allows users to spend less time setting up and pairing units and more time enjoying their ride. The motion sensor feature is also firmware upgradeable to allow for additional yet to be released features.

A shopper asked: Which GPS units will the Sena 20S pair with using Bluetooth for trip routing? I have the SMH10 and was informed that GPS voice directions would pair to it but that is not the case. I have a Garmin nuvi 3597 GPS and Garmin says it will not work with the SMH10 and furthermore Garmin indicates there is no way they can make all their bluetooth gps units compatible with all bluetooth headsets!! Mar 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Josh M: The Sena SMH10 and 20S will pair perfectly with all the Garmin's that pair with headsets. The nuvi 3597 hasbluetooth but does not pair to headsets. It pairs to phones so you can talk and hear through the GPS unit (and stow phone). The models meant for motorcycles, (Zumo models for example) pair to headsets as well as phones. All on Garmin's website. Mar 12, 2014
Reply to Josh Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
David S: I agree that it can't be used with everything. Depending on how Garmin implemented the BT. This is also the case with Zumos. I have the Zumo 550 and while I could pair over BT for navigation, phone and music (MP3) Garmin decided that if you added the optional XM antenna you can only get XM over the hardwire Audio out. So I have to run the hardwire audio out to a Sena SM10 BT hub which then I pair the headset to. Basically skipping the pairing of the GPS direct to the headset. So if the Nuvi 3597 audio out, the SM10 is an option. Though it is pretty spendy if that is all you want it for. It does add the capability of adding a couple aux inputs such as multiple Garmins (I run 3 of them) and an input for a PTT style radio (FRS/GMRS/CB). Since I use the radios for bike to bike Comms it was easier to justify the cost of the SM10. If I only wanted it for a BT bridge for XM I would have done a cheap BT dongle off eBay. Apr 3, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michelle S: I purchased the 20s, and was not able to hear music or conversations clearly with the standard speakers that came with the unit. I tried everything, but the wind noise and road noise, even with the volume turned as high as it would go, I was still not able to hear properly.

So, I purchased the SHURE SE215 Earphones, and they work GREAT. The system is compatible with other ear-buds. The 20s has both an earphone/bud and an Axillary port ( mp3 player )

I removed the standard speakers off the unit ( just a little screw turn ) and the speakers/wires are removed.

I do not know about other helmet speakers compatibility.

S S: Yes. According to the instructions you can use your choice of buds or speakers.

I haven't changed either yet on my 20s, but when I upgraded the Sena smh10 to Tork X Pro speakers, the difference was incredible. Huge upgrade in clarity, bass and overall sound. The speakers on the 20s are pretty rocking out of the box so I haven't needed to.

David B asked: How is the build quality of the unit? I have been reading about build quality issues on various forums so I am hesitant on purchasing the Sena 20s and having to deal with warranty.

Tina-Kevin M: The build quality is great. Some may say it is not because it is light weight. It is suppose to be light weight. That is the point in the unit. Very strong and very functional. The best unit on the market by far. Great sound quality and if it is not good enough you can use your own speakers with it. I crashed head first into gravel and slit 15 feet on my head before coming to a stop. The shoe helmet did its job and the Sena only had a couple of scratches and still works perfectly.

Jang J asked: Taping 20S to initiate "voice command" is hit or miss. What is the best way to do it? Jul 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Sena B: With the v1.1 firmware for the 20S you can set the Motion Sensor sensitivity to "high" or "low" or you can disable it entirely. With the Motion Sensor set to "high" you need to gently tap the body of the 20S (or on the helmet around the 20S) twice to activate the voice command. The best way to activate it is to gently tap two times while counting the seconds. Count to one second for the first tap and then count two seconds for the second tap. With the sensitivity level set to "low" you only need more force when tapping but the same 1 second gap in between each taps. Jul 8, 2014
Reply to Sena Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Brian K: Jang, I've had the 20s for several week, and admittedly have not spent a lot of time on., but so far tapping it does not work for me.
I suggest the following
1) Join the forum at Sena for tips and to view existing problems (lots).
2) Update both firmware and software as they become available.
I do think Sena is trying and currency of software and firmware is your best bet.

Steven D: Did you do the update? They added a sensitivity setting which can be adjusted from the smartphone app. They also have a bunch of tutorial videos on their website. One of them shows how to do the tapping. Which by the way they recommend tapping your helmet and not the body of the 20S.

Nancy S asked: I have a Shoei RF-1200 in small. I have read that the 20s Speakers are just a hair too big to fit well into the speaker wells in the helmet. I don't want to surface mount the speakers. Has anyone successfully mounted the speakers in the wells on the RF 1200? Oct 10, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Cesar J: This is not quite the answer to your question, but I do have some ideas. (For the record, I have the speakers mounted in my Shoei GT-Air.)

If you buy it and it ends up being too small, you might be able to use strips of 3M double-stick mounting tape (the best one ends up being 3M VHB, 1/16" thick [or 3 mil] double-stick mounting tape). You're most likely to run into issues with the part of the speakers where the wires come out. In my GT-Air, the recess built into the helmet for speakers is shaped like a circle with one squared-off corner, so I just oriented the speakers so that the wires come out there.

An alternative solution would be to use in-ear headphones, the kind that go inside your ear canals (not ear-buds, which just sit inside your ear). the hardest part there would be finding a quality pair that seal up just right with your ears, yet remain low-profile enough to not be uncomfortable inside your helmet. v-Moda makes a good set that I've used that way before.

S K: I have my 20s in a medium 1200. I manipulated mine so I did not need to shave some of the inside shell down. However, the best way would be to sand some of the inside liner down (which isn't much) and you're not shaving enough to negate the safety properties of the helmet. If you put the wire side down into the hole first its possible to have part of the speaker stick on the supplied velcro. I also kept the inserts that come in the helmet that are in those holes to go over the speakers to stop any issues with discomfort or rubbing on my ear (also in my case to help hold the speaker in). I've only had one issue with a speaker coming out and it was fixed within 10 seconds. Ultimately I would say do the shave method as that will allow the speaker to fully sit on the velcro and not require you to adjust the speakers. Good luck! Oct 10, 2014

Nancy S: So I decided to purchase the SMH10 instead. It fits well in the speaker wells. The foam inserts in the helmet are now too big to use, too, but it is comfortable without. I have other issues with the SMH10 that I will post on that product page, but it had to do with the upgrade to the firmware they suggest you do. Basically, it killed the unit. Sena is going to replace it, but apparently I wasn't the only one with this problem. How about a little proactivity from Sena. What a hassle. Oct 24, 2014

Jack M: I have an RF-1200 large, and was able to mount the speakers just fine. In my case, I used a razor blade to shave down the plastic. Specifically, I opened up the area where Shoe left a guide for wires going to the speakers. This allowed the Sena speakers to slip right in. Oct 17, 2014

A shopper asked: I have the Cardio at this time, they are very good except if you are not talking for like 10 seconds it goes to sleep and it's very hard to reconnect to the rider you were talking to.

Marc L: Mine is always active. If intercom function is activated, it does not go to sleep. If I am listening to music, and not multitasking (so that I can talk right over the music) I just get the jog dial to start intercom conversation again. It works great. Dec 29, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
MARK G F: Yes. The unit comes with a self supported boom mic that attaches to the 20s as long as you have room on the back part of helmet on the side to attach the mounting bracket. BUT the 20s has had a lot of problems with the earlier units in Bluetooth connections, volume control, FM reception. I replaced my unit once, received a later serial number, still had problems, and finally asked for a refund. Bought a SMH10 instead and it works flawlessly. Nov 30, 2014

How your noise quality at hwy speeds for radio or turn by turn? I've been considering the 20s (whice I've read has major issues) sena SMH 10 or the Uclear HBC200HD... Have you any experience wth the uclear?

A shopper asked: All my friends have SMH10. How will the S20 affect range when pairing to them? Are there any benefits in getting the S20 if the only use will be for intercom? Nov 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
stu s: The sm 20 does improve range with the 10's. My friends also say that the connection delay on the 20 is improved as is the audio quality. One word of warning. I had to return one already because the connector on the helmet broke. I love the technology but I am not 100% confident in Sena's manufacturing capabilities. Nov 12, 2014
Reply to stu Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
John G: I have both units and the S20 is not going to help as far as additional range. The S20 is no where near as rugged as the SMH10 and my S20 cracked open after a small bump after only 2 weeks. This was fixed with a little superglue and silcone sealant to make sure it was still water resistant. The S20 can be a pain sometimes to get a group intercom going with users that have SMH10s and SMH10Rs.

Even after all the issues with the S20 I stick with it because my group likes to leave the comms open for chit chat and to call out road hazards and I think this is important for safety. I like to listen to music on long rides and the S20 allows me to do both at the same time. This makes all the issues with build quality and early firmware issues worth it.

A shopper asked: When riding and wanting to talk how does the voice activation on the s20 work? Do you have to tap the head set or just start talking? Feb 16, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Timothy C: You tap the head set to talk to another rider. You double tap to say a voice command, such as "Speed dial 1" and it will call the number you have programmed into the unit. You are supposed to be able to say "Hello Sena" vs. a double tap, but the voice command usually doesn't work for me. I believe you are supposed to be able to answer a phone call verbally, but this does not work for me either.

To sum up, I push the large button once for rider to rider, double tap the side to issue a voice command. and press the button on the back to answer or end phone calls.

Wayne M: I mounted mine to a Nolan 104. I removed the bottom trim of the helmet and cut a small tab out, about 1/4 by 1 inch as wide as the unit clamp. That allowed for the base mount to slip into the helmet and clamp to the side. Very stable and if I remove the base mount it is hardly noticable and does not effect the helmet.

A shopper asked: I am currently using a Sena 10 with good results, except I cannot switch from my iPhone music stream(pandora) and the installed audio system on my BMW r1200rt, which is bluetooth enabled. If I start off listening to the bike audio, I can receive calls on my iPhone, but the music stream capability is lost. If I have the music stream enabled on my iPhone, than I cannot stream from the bike. The bike is paired via A2DP, while the iPhone is multi-point. Also have a Garmin GPS Nav5 paired, but that isn't causing any problems. Turn by turns come across fine. the 20S allow me to switch between the two sources without losing the appropriate pairings?

Cathy G: Tha'ts a tough one. If you connect through blue tooth for your bike radio is it setup as one bluetooth address and the phone as another address and so on? On the 20s I can go back and forth with my phone and my music. But they are one and the same device. The 20s SHOULD pickup the stream again either by voice command or tapping the phone button. I'm sorry I don't have that multiple setup you have but the 20s is very capable. Try another source for more info . Doug Oct 6, 2014
Reply to Cathy Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Sena B: Similarly to the SMH10, the 20S only has one A2DP Bluetooth profile so both the iPhone and the BMW R1200RT can't be using the same A2DP audio signal at the same time. You can pair both devices using the mobile phone pairing method but depending on which order device the 20S connects to depends on which device will get to use the A2DP audio signal. Oct 9, 2014

I currently use my iPhone for streaming Pandora, and internal music player, but I also have a Garmin 665 with XM radio, however with the SMH10 I can only pair one device for Bluetooth stereo (a2dp) So my choice is to either have stereo Pandora/iPhone and mono XM/Voice prompts or pair the iPhone to 665 and have no access to Pandora/iPhone music player.

Can this device do both in Stereo?

Klaudiusz K: The Sena 20 has bluetooth 4.0. In theory it gives wide range of multitasking possibilities. Personally I only paired my Galaxy S5 (equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 as well) with it and I was able to play tunes, listen navigation and talk over the phone in the same time.
I didn't try pairing with anything else, didn't find a need.
Maybe someone else can chime in.
Btw, wait a bit. I went through two unit and both had same build issue -bad batch maybe. Spoke with Sena and they told me they waiting for second shipment (mid Sept.). Other then that I love all the features Sena 20 has.

Sena B: The 20S can do both devices in stereo but not while both devices are connected to the headset at the same time. There is only one Bluetooth profile available on the 20S that is used for stereo audio and that can only be used by one device at one time. However, Sena has an adapter called the SM10 that can combine two stereo audio sources, like an iPhone and a GPS, into one audio source which is then paired to the 20S. Oct 9, 2014

Mark W: I use it with a c3 pro Schubeth helmet. I have never used the BMW Intercom. The friends I ride with all have the Sena brand. It connects very easy with one touch of the button. I like listening to music when I ride, so I found connecting ear buds sounds the best. The speakers do not seem to play the music loud enough. You can connect more than one device though the blue tooth. Mar 30, 2015

Wayne M: I mounted my SENA 20S to a Nolan 104. The SENA unit detaches from the mount, so once you get the mount on the helmet it stays there and you just remove the device to charge or store. The SENA mount is designed to clip onto the bottom edge of a helmet and bolts in for tension. Because my helmet had a plastic trim around the bottom edge I had to remove the bottom trim between the edge of the helmet and the lining. I cut a small slit about 1/4 inch wide and 1 inch long in the trim then put it back on the helmet. That allowed me to slip the SENA mount into the hole and bolt it to the helmet. If I want to remove the mount I can, it just leaves a small hole in the trim. Well worth it for the quality you get from the device and the awesome features. If you use a helmet camera this device is compatable with the Prism and is voice controlled. Feb 18, 2015

A S asked: What is different in the 20 from the 10? I see the ability to pair with ANY Bluetooth headset and Bluetooth 4...whatever that does...anything else that would push me to the 20 in place of the 10? Apr 2, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (1)
David S: Right before the announcement of the 20 I had bought a SMH10. I returned the SMH10 for the following reasons. The 20 has FM radio tuner built in, it also has better range for bike to bike communications. The universal communications was another reason but that feature is supported with the latest Firmware update on the 10 now. It also has better voice control but that may have been improved on the 10 with the firmware update. Not sure about that one. The biggest selling point for me was the FM tuner as I was looking at adding one to the bike tied into my SM10 which I have for GMRS/CB radios and XM. Apr 2, 2014
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
A S: You indicate the 10 was used for GMRS/CB...did it actually work for the cb? If so, what are you riding? I have a Harley and they keep saying NO BLUETOOTH will work the CB. Apr 2, 2014
David S: Just to clarify when I say SM10 it is different than the SMH10. SM10 is a Bluetooth Hub which adds PTT capability for certain radios and allows aux inputs for other various non-BT devices like GPS, radar detectors, ect. Personally I ride a Honda ST1300. This bike doesn't have any factory radio options. So for GMRS I am running a Icom F21 Commercial GMRS with NMO whip antenna. For CB/WX I use Midland 75-822 with whip antenna. I have to be selective on if I am using GMRS or CB but it is easy to switch. Depends on if I am riding in a group (GMRS) or solo (CB/WX). Then I have 2 Aux inputs for two of my 3 Garmins. While I have a Zumo 550 with XM which has BT built in, it doesn't support XM over BT. I would have to upgrade to the Zumo 665. Since I needed the SM10 anyhow for the conversion of comms to BT, I just run the Zumo through that. The phone goes to the Zumo so I have caller ID and everything routes through the SM10 Hub which is compatible with pretty much any BT headset (Sena or not). I can't speak for other CB systems and many times OEM systems are hard to tie into BT. So their statement that no CB works with BT. Well if they are talking Harley integrated CB they could be right. If they are talking aftermarket radios, then I would say not true. I do it. I will say that range sucks with CB which is why I don't use it much. The 4 watt transmit power on my Icom F21 crushes it in terms of range. More so when teamed with a quality antenna. I use a Laird whip. Apr 3, 2014

My question will fluctuate as people input their personal experiences, but how is the build quality of the product, and how well are the new/upgraded features? I have borrowed and used the SMH-10 from a friend and it's great, but I'm looking for something that will fit my taste and the 20s nails it, but I'm just curious and would love a little more insight before finalizing a purchase.
