has anyone a clue why phone reception from iphone output doesn't work well? Can hear the caller on other end loud and clear. Could it be defective?

I'm not quite sure what it is you're asking. Phone reception isn't working? You say you can hear the caller - are you trying to use the GPS Input to hook up and make phone calls? If so, it doesn't work that way. From the GPS Input page:

It will also work with any cell phone that has a 3.5mm headphone jack - which is pretty much any cell phone made in the last ten years or so. Keep in mind the audio is one way - from the device to your motorcycle intercom. You can't talk back to your cell phone.

Thanks I guess I wasn't quite precise on problem. When I answer phone, caller on other end has a hard time hearing me, cuts in and out. Tried adjusting volume both on control input and on bike. Hope that helps more

I don't know about anyone else, but when I go for a ride it's to escape being tied to a phone, desk, house,etc. IMHO, there are very few, if any, phone calls that are so important that I have to talk while riding. Not since the President stopped seeking my advice, anyways. ;)

Right. Again, the GPS Input is a ONE WAY audio device. It will carry audio FROM a device such as a GPS, radar detector or cell phone TO the bike's intercom. It does NOT carry audio from the bike back to the device, in your case a phone. It was (and is) not intended to be an interface to a cell phone to allow you to make calls. It will function in that you will be able to hear the audio from a phone call should you make one (i.e. you will be able to hear the caller), however there is no provision in place to carry audio from the bike back to the phone so that the caller could hear you. That is not the original design or intent of the device.
