I ride a Goldwing and have wired headsets for Nav, Radio, CB and passenger communication. I bought unit (and another helmet to put it in) this solely for the purpose of being able to make/receive phone calls when riding alone.
I initially had some synch problems, but after a little time on google, I was able to solve the problem myself.
I haven't used it as often as I thought I would, which means each time I have to re-learn how it works which is a pain. However, after I go through that process, it seems to work as directed.
I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 because it seems complicated to me, but in all honesty, that might be because I don't use it frequently enough for the operational process to become second nature. As I said, it does seem to work as intended.
The system itself is great. And now the "However". Once you get the SMH10 dual headset, and the SM10 Bluetooth stereo audio adapter, you can do whatever EXCEPT communicate on the CB. You can listen but you can not transmit. Per Wingstuff, to be able to talk on the CB, you will need item JMJBLUBHDG06CA01, JMJBLUBHDG06, and two JMHSEBLU629EDROF headsets. Per SENA, the SMH10 headset is NOT compatible with the above mentioned J&M products. The J&M system is over $1K but you have full capability. SENA system, SNH10, SM10, and the 5 Pin Interface DIN Cable For Honda Gold Wing will cost around $450.00. I chose the SENA system minus full CB capability, but the one Star rating remains.
2-star rating at this time because all I can do is talk with my wife using this system. May be upgraded with everything is installed.
First let me explain that I do not text, take pictures, or anything else with my phone except make calls. I am not up on this "Bluetooth" technology. Did not need it until now.
After purchasing the SMH10 (dual pack) I was very excited; no more cables from my Goldwing to the helmets. Unfortunately, I was not able to install the intercom system because both of my Bell helmets were on backorder. The helmets finally arrived from Bell and I install the SMH10. Found out the system was not compatible with my Goldwing. All I could do was talk with my wife; lucky me. I immediately called SENA and explained my problem and application. SENA informed me that I now need to buy the SM10 Bluetooth Stereo Transmitter as well as the 3.5mm Stereo Jack to 5 pin DIN Cable (SC-A0121). When that equipment arrives (mid-Aug) and I get it installed, I will write again and update this product review, letting you know if this system will work on the Goldwing radio, GPS, CD, and iPod or if I have to send the entire SENA system back. If you do talk with SENA about this, make sure you get the name of the person you talk to and their extension. I even recorded the conversation because I do not want to get stuck with $450.00 of useless equipment.
I have to say, I wrote a couple of scathing reviews about this product, but, in my defense, as my wife will tell you, I'm very obstinate and won't admit when I'm wrong. In this case, I am/was...but don't tell her.
It is true that my first pair wouldn't sync. It is also true that Sena technical support accused me of not following thier very simple directions (which is where I probably should have stayed a little calmer).
However, the outcome is much more positive. After reading my review(s) on Wingstuff.com, I was contacted by Rick Grassadonia the North America Sales Manager for Sena through the Wingstuff website email.
He made arrangements to have me ship my dual pair set back to him directly and he had them replaced. He also went as far as upgrading my units to the the newer v2.0 models which allows for firmware updates (really cool). Thanks Rick, great customer support!
The new units work perfectly! That's right, they work great! They DO sync up for intercom use with my wife(maybe not the brightest side of this story). I can receive and make phone calls. The jog dial is very easy to manipulate (although my wife still bumps mine from time to time with her head). And with the Gold Wing 5 pin to 3.5mm adapters I purchased from Wingstuff.com, I can use some of Gold Wings' on board audio functions.
Overall, I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a Bluetooth solution to audio, phone and intercom functionality on their Gold Wing.
In fact, I like them so much now, I just placed an order for another dual setup for a friend for his birthday present!
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
