Awesome. Take your time with speaker placement. It makes a huge difference in volume level and clarity.
Also, good on you for supporting Cycle-Gear. They always support our club and it is great having a shop close by.

+2 on SPEAKER PLACEMENT! Ralph if you mention NSBMWR, Myron (the manager) will sometimes (if he can) give us a discount.

Sounds like a lot of you went for the Sena 10C but other then the camera the 20S EVO looks to have most of the features for about 100.00 less. Just wondering how much everyone uses the camera.

I have the Sena SMH5 and I find it works very well. I get AM FM receive and send phone calls and of course GPS. This Friday I'll see how it works blue toothed with Phil while going to Square Route. I have the single, no passenger, purchased for well under $100.00.

How is the reception on the radio? My unit is 4/5 years old and the reception even on a strong station like WMMR is ok at best. At this point I'm better off streaming but that really sucks battery on the phone even plugged in.

My SMH5 works very well. Reception from radio is very good, ok, it's not concert quality but I'm using the standard supplied speakers. Sena has optional in helmet speakers that are suppose to provide better sound quality. I couldn't be happier with mine, and I'm looking forward to pairing up with Phil and see how the rider to rider intercom works.

If this you're first time using one I think you will enjoy it. It makes things like rest and gas stops a lot easier. Bring the charging cord with you. Battery life on the new units is better then mine but its good to have.

I also have the SMH-5-FM for the price you can't beat it BUT...
It is older 3.0 BT which is fine unless you have a lot of devices you want to pair at once. Mine seems to be OK with two, my phone and GPS.
Now with the new bike and trying to pair with the TFT display as well it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.

The new BT standard is 4.1... Checking into my connection issues the experts say that although everything is backwards compatible if you have connection issues look at the oldest tech in the chain first and since everything else I have is 4.1 I am looking to replace the Sena with the SRL made to fit into the Shoei Neotech 2.

I spoke to two members last night at ice cream meet up and the only downside I heard was the buttons can be tricky because they are tucked into the helmet.

I'm leaning towards the 20s but I take my bike to work when I can and I do like the idea of vid. I could charge it at the office so the battery would be less of an issue. That said the price of the 10cpro is steep.

If you buy the 10C, or the 10C Pro, do yourself a favor and buy this. I actually use the camera now. So easy to control.
