Trying to stream FM stations to SMH10 headset

Alright ladies and gents. Here's my dilemma. I bought a pair of SMH10 for my fiance and I last season. I have googled the crap outta my computer, but cannot find a solution to what I am trying to achieve. Here it is: I like to listen to patriot radio on my way to and from work everyday. I have been trying to find a way to stream the station via bluetooth to the SMH10. Does anyone know of a bluetooth FM receiver for my bike?

PS Unfortunately my data plan on my Iphone doesn't afford the ability to listen to the podcast.

Upgrade your iphone to an HTC phone....most have built in FM tuner like my incredible 2.

This should be simple really. Sorry not an Apple fan, but most smartphones these days have built-in FM radio. So long as the headphones are plugged in and Bluetooth is on, you should be able to do it via that if its got a radio.
Another alternative is to buy an MP3 player with Bluetooth and FM. I bought the wife a Sony NWZ-S765 to pair with her SMH5. Same again, headphones in to act as aerial.
Or buy any mini FM radio and add a Bluetooth dongle. WebBikeWorld did a review recently you may want to take a look

Since you are already an Apple guy, take a look at the iPod Nano. It has a FM receiver and bluetooth.

If you have an iPhone, I recommend that you have a look at the “Tune-In Radio” and/or “Pandora Radio” apps.

why not just get a cheap FM receiver for your pocket and use the headphone jack that comes with your Sena? Mine even came with the cabling... seams the cheapest/easiest solution.

I tried one of these and yes it worked, but was a pain, as another piece of gear to need to keep fiddling with.

I'll take a gander at the FM receiver. If I'm not mistaken, Tune in radio uses data to stream. Unfortunately, I don't have unlimited data.

SENA has a new SMH10 that has a built-in FM radio, but right now it's only available for chili bowl helmets:

They also make an SMH5 with an FM radio. Maybe they'll add FM to the standard SMH10 line soon?

Bringing this tread back to life thanks to Google.

I just found out my Nuvi GPS has a built in FM transmitter and I would like to send MP3 music and directions to my Sena SMH10. Yes I could load it on my phone and use BT, but then I have to keep my phone charging. This way I could also get turn by turn directions on my Sena. Yes I could get a MPOW BT transmitter and plug into my GSP unit and I may do that.

Does Sena make a clamp unit that has an FM receiver?

Anyone find a small FM receive that could be piggy backed onto the aux port?
