Honda to bluetooth ?

Postby pienchips » Sun Dec 04, 2011 8:58 am



Hello fellow Goldwing riders
Yes another newbie
I have just bought a 2010 Goldwing (in Nov 2011) on the bike side of things it is great but on the audio side it is lacking to say the least .
My wife and I used to use a Sena bluetooth headset which meet all our needs but now we are using the J&M corded headsets which are a bit limited.
Is there a gadget that you can hook up the Honda side of things (their Navigator and music ) to bluetooth into my Sena headset ,so
1.We don't have any annoying cords.
2.My wife can use bluetooth to her Ipod and can play her music(which is VERY different to mine).
3.Use the Sena intercom.
4.Maybe be able to use a mobile phone on either of our headsets.
Any info would be much appreciated.
Thank you

Did you ever get a reply to your request about adding bluetooth to your 2010 Goldwing? I have a 2010 1800 as well and the Sena bluetooth system and would appreciate any info you found out.

Do you guys have the B version of the Sena? It has a micro USB port for charging.

If so, Sena just released an updated firmware (version 4) that may do what you are after. I am far from understanding or using all the capabilities but like that they are available.

You can check the Sena website, or WebBikeWorld has a review on the capabilities of the new firmware here:

Hope this helps.

Apparently SENA is coming out with SM10 product this month that will connect to non-bluetooth [like a Goldwing's] sources and convert them to SENA bluetooth. Trying hard to get info from SENA.

I am also a newbe (just scored a leftover 2010) and I did the research for bluetooth; quite frankly I think the cords are the best for the wings. The bluetooth system from J&M only gives the driver the access to the phone. and after all the cash they still say you cannot return the item if the bluetooth is not to your liking... A big red flag for me. We will use the cords and maybe the mp3 player option until someone backs thier system...

Hi all
Just got an email saying I got a reply
I have done some research an to fit my needs I bought a 5 DIN female to 3.5mm stereo male cord of ebay $3 -$4 ,which I plug into a blue tooth transmitter approx $30( not the FM radio type ).I hide all this in the right hand back pocket and route the cables out of sight between the seat and the pocket (you slide the 3.5mm jack into the pocket via a overlap joint in the pocket.this all works a treat I have all the honda audio capabilities plus intercom plus bluetooth to mobile phone,ipod/mp3 through my Sena headset and my wife can listen to her tree hugging music.
The only down side is that every time i stop the bike i have to reconnect the bluetooth transmitter which isn't too bad and of late the transmitter only lasts approx 6hrs(I ride Townsville to Rockhanton a couple of time a year).
Hope this helps you all out (Below links to good old ebay for cord and transmitter)

That 3.5mm to 5-pin DIN cable is very likely not going to work. Honda doesn't use any standard DIN layout for their audio - it's unique to Goldwings. The eBay auction doesn't say what the pinouts are, or even what the cable is intended to do. I suspect it's intended for very high-end home stereo amplifiers (i.e. B&O, Quad, NAM, etc.) that have 5-pin DIN interconnects. If so, it most definitely will not work, and could even do damage.

Hi WingAdmin
The system above does work and I have use it for 4-5 months with no hicups with no problems to the bike, other riders have used this system elsewere with no complants.As for doing damage to your bike as I understand the audio system all power is going outward ie to the transmitter and none is going back to the bike like a receiver.
This is a system that I use and it works for me if anybody is in doubt do your own research and make your own conclusions.
Thanks

Hi rickity1
I just went on the Sena web sight to see the SM10 looks great but I am saving up to buy the SR10 so I can use a two way radio (the USA CB version does not work in Australia ).
In the Sena web sight for the SM10 they have the cord I was talking about (5 DIN to 3.5mm jack).
Either one of SM10 or the SR10 is a great way to go but until I get the cash I'll have to stick to the bluetooth transmitter and just use whats on the wing for now.
Thanks for the info

Folks interested in a device that will convert all Goldwing audio to bluetooth wireless should check out the Sena SM10 which is a match for the SMH10 system. The SM10 is supposed to be available this summer according to Sena, although I've yet to see it available for purchase. Just google "Sena SM10." Can't wait to get my hands on one so, if you're interested, bug Sena about when we can get one.

Cyclebots has a pre-order item for the Sena SM10 http://cyclebots.com/bluetooth-adapters/sena-sm10-stereo-bluetooth-adapter.html. $149 with a July 2012 release date. What I'm wondering is if it would also cover CB functions - says audio but doesn't say if it's just the radio or both the radio and CB. Much better price than the $249 that spoiled biker wants for the bluetooth converter for Goldwings that does inclued CB functionality.

Didn't see this one, so started another. But long story short, there is an adapter that will take 3.5mm output and convert/connect to bluetooth at http://www.outdoortechnology.com/Shop/A ... MgodFQQAJA. It costs $40 and should help people on a tight budget. I haven't bought one yet, but plan to as soon as we get back from Sturgis/Devil's Tower/Yellowstone. I'm gonna hook it up to my GL1500 with the adapter in the store.

Hi Jenagle
Looks like a great little unit after a while I just went to a cord yes i know a bit old school but I do a couple of long 10 hour rides a year and for a few days lastest was a 8 day ride (poker run throught central Queensland Australia)so with a 5-6 hour battery life of your device unfortunatly it wouldn't last long.This said it would be good for those shorter runs.
Thanks for the input.

That's the main reason I would not go to a Bluetooth helmet setup. 5-6 hour battery life is not nearly enough. I've done 20+ hour rides before, and I don't want to depend on battery powered anything on my bike.

Hi all, I use the Sena SM10 transmitter for Bluetooth which connects to the output wires for the radio on the bike, however it does not do two way so a cb radio is not supported and neither is the onboard intercom. You have to use he intercom with the Bluetooth in the helmets. I have added a power outlet inside of the left hand front pocket on the bike and plugged the included plug for charging from the Sm10 into an adaptor plugged into the outlet, this keeps the SM10 charged up all the time and I haven't had to remove it from the bike for the whole summer so far, including a 15 day trip to Madison and North of Toronto. I also plugged in a GPS system into the power outlet and from the headphone jack into the Sena SM10 and when the GPS gives me directions it lowers the radio volume and then turns it up again afterwards. Great little unit with no worry about charging each day.
