Not through Bluetooth, but you could with a splitter and wires to each Sena.

Yes.

Will the unit lower volume automatically when intercom is activated?
Yes.

I'm coming from an autocom active plus and want to make sure I'm making the right upgrade. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Rob

Yes. Independent Ipods, simple BT MP3 players, cell phones, etc..

The volume level is independent for each device, and intercom.

I'm still having intermittent volume issues with my Sena when speaking on the phone. Today I received a call while riding and was able to speak normally, but when stopped I couldn't be heard. As soon as I started moving again the problem went away. Anyone else had this issue?

[quote=WZ4I] Sure. Actually, it quite easy to make.

1st you need to find a Jabra A210 Bluetooth Adapter. Look on eBay and Amazon. ...

WZ4I - I forgot to say thanks for the info you provided...so...Thanks!

Problems mounting SENA units on certain helmets

I ordered the dual unit set from British Motorcycle Gear. Paid for fast shipping. Ordered on Friday after they had already shipped for the day, and received them on Wednesday when I got home from work.

A couple of notes on installation: If you have a flip-up helmet, you may have clearance problems with the visor rubbing on the bracket when it reaches the end of its travel. And if you have external controls for a sunshade, you may not be able to mount it.

1) My wife has a new Symax II helmet, and it has a ridge on the side of the flip-up visor that rubs. I had to take off the bracket's rubber pads, and stack them on the outside of the helmet to get enough clearance.

2) I bought a new Zeus ZS-3000A flip-up/modular hetmet, with an internal sunshade. The Sena WILL NOT MOUNT to this helmet!!! The control for the internal visor is on the lower left side of the helmet, EXACTLY where the bracket needs to go. Bummer. I had to use my old helmet so we can ride this weekend.

Other than the mounting problems, they seem to work well - effortless charging, pairing and communicating while riding the couches.

I will post more after we road test them.

Hotaru, I'm in the same boat as you. I have a set of Interphones that are still working flawlessly and would have like to have stuck with them, but the Sena stood out too much. The ability to charge while riding and an auxiliary input sealed the deal for ordering the Sena set off of Rocketmoto.

I'll just have to keep wearing my earbuds with my blueant when I use that helmet for piping in music.

Steve:
(Thanks for the order! )

There's a an earbud compatible version of the 'clamp unit' coming in about a month (that's the latest info that I have). You will be able order the clamp unit as an accessory, and the Bluetooth transceiver just clips into the clamp unit. Handy if you want to use speakers on one helmet and ear buds on another; a very clever, versatile design.

The speaker-mic clamp units in the current kits retail for $49.95 ea., so I would think that the earbud version will be in this range, as well.

First post here

I'm glad to find this thread, very informative. I have been looking for an inexpensive way to talk to the hubby when riding, I think I've found my answer

Is the capability of the G4's firmware to be updated a huge advantage?

Right now, it sounds like the "easy of use knob" on the Sena - and the beefier, louder, better quality speakers - are the potential advantages of the Sena over the G4 - and cost. The RocketMoto deal is hard to pass up - I just don't want to regret not getting a G4 if it is better.

Anyone have experience with both - care to weigh in?
I use my Sena with an older 2G Iphone (jailbroken so I can get stereo bluetooth) and people on the other end actually say the clarity is BETTER than just talking with the phone held up to my ear. At 70+mph. I do have a big windscreen on the RT, but it's still impressive.

One oddity

Has anyone else with the Sena noticed a series of 3 beeps while riding? I know there is a mode where it searches for intercom, but that's 2 beeps. I charged mine last night and noticed this on the commute this morning. It occurs about every 1 or 2 minutes. Need to contact Sena because I don't see anything in the user manual on it.

Do a FULL RESET (press phone button for 12 seconds) ... When we got ours, they were in the VOX mode. By default that was supposed to be off, but it wasn't. That may solve the issue..

Hi I want to purchase either an Interfone F4 or the Senna but not sure if you need a cable from I phone to senna to listen to music, can anyone clear this up for me?
If you don't need the cable, why do they have the input socket on the Senna?
I have an Autocom at the moment but cant connect Bluetooth and don't want to buy the Bluetooth module to connect Zumo and Iphone because I don't like the cables to helmet, which is why I am buy a pair of BT units.
Also can you listen to music via BT from Iphone to F4?

If you have an iphone (3G or 3Gs), you won't need a cable because the Iphone will link to the Sena via bluetooth for both music and phone functions. The input socket is for listening to music over non-bluetooth equipped devices through a wire.
