Sorry for the late reply. They are 12.0 not 2.0. I believe it's a newer model (bought last year). A local store was kind enough to call their distributor and get a replacement flap at no cost....

I ended up trading for a Sena SMH10 and really like it. Simple intuitive controls. Much better audio quality than the Scala. No bass but hey, for $500, can't expect much, right?

I had issues before pairing it with my phone. The VOX commands should work with or without for example.

This is why ive been advocating blenders built into cars. You can turn your breakfast into a shake and drink it through a straw. Same for helmets. You could save millions of lives.
