Stereo question

Postby Uncle Fester » Sat May 16, 2015 10:48 am



I have searched with no luck, unless I missed it, so here goes. . . .

Does anyone make a bluetooth TRANSMITTER I can hook up to the factory stereo and listen to via a SENA, or other brand, setup in my full face helmet ?

I want to be able to listen to my stereo, and music from my smart phones SD Card, as well as receive and make calls.

I know I am asking a lot, but can it be done ?


P.S.
Yes I found a helmet that fits my big head, and am TRYING to get used to wearing it. . . . SO HUSH ! Lol

Actually I would LOVE to hook my factory stereo, CB, Intercom AND cell phone all together via bluetooth.

How hard would THAT be to do ?

Someone had asked about connecting their phone and Wing Admin suggested this site.

LOL. Helmet? How will I recognize you when you ride by now? Seriously that is a good thing.

If I understand correctly, you want to be able to use the existing Goldwing stereo as well as MP3/Pandora from your cell phone and also the ability to answer your cell phone.

I had the same concerns wants as well when I bought my U-Clear headset. I bought a Bluetooth transmitter on Amazon for about $15-20.00 and made an adapter to use the existing 5 pin Goldwing plug to the smaller plug that was on the transmitter and unfortunately you won't be able to use the CB radio.

As for the MP3/Pandora on your cell phone you should be able to Bluetooth that into your headset

Sena makes its own Bluetooth transmitter which should link up very easily with a Sena headset. They also sell a cable to run from your existing bike radio to the transmitter as well as having an additional spot to plug in a GPS or MP3 player. I am using a U-Clear headset with the Sena Transmitter ( I believe it is an SM10 model) which pairs very nicely with it, and have a Garmin GPS connected through it as well. Sound from radio reduces automatically when transmitting from GPS. As previous poster stated you will not be able to use CB radio with this set-up. The Sena transmitter has a rechargeable battery, and a charging cable with a power outlet option so I have put a power supply into the left hand pocket and plugged in a cheap add on that will accommodate two power plugs as well as two usb devices. The bike does its job and keeps the Transmitter and GPS charged up at all times.
