1500SE Intercom and cellphone

Postby Okayamapiper » Mon Feb 06, 2012 3:57 am



I am looking for a way to work a bluetooth telephone with the stock intercom. The stock intercom was removed by the Japan Dept. of Transportation due to local laws about speaker and helmets, but I've managed to get the parts on ebay and should have it up and going within the month. Now I am looking for a way to get a bluetooth phone to work with the stereo unit. If anybody has experience with this please let me know.
Cheers,
James

I haven't read anywhere how this can be done. The stock unit does not support Bluetooth. You are either wired by Honda or use Bluetooth by others.

I designed an interface between a Bluetooth module and the intercom in my 1100...I don't know if I'm going to do the same thing for my 1500 or not.

You could probably make some coin with those if you could produce them cheap enough.

I had a few people ask me to replicate mine...the problem with producing it commercially is, it's considered a new RF device, and would require FCC certification in order to sell (legally) ...and that's big bucks (I once worked for a company that did UL, CSA and FCC testing).

My wife has asked that I build one for my 1500...so that she can call me when I'm out riding. :)

So...I'm still on the fence as to whether I will build one. :) :)

No, honestly, I do have one in the works. I'm doing a bit of research, thinking perhaps I might try to make a commercially saleable model, so I'm going into the design with that in mind.

I would like one also. You might be able to put a "kit" together and the person you send it to finishes it. ;)

I got a hold of a man named Jon Jambor with "Cellset" (http://www.cellset.com/Motorcycleitems.html) who makes adapters to use a cell phone through the stock 1500 intercom system. I emailed him and told him I have a Sprint Evo phone and he said I needed:
CellSet, MC3-ICS/MIC
Part Number: 95413
Price: US$85
----------------------------------------------------------
Harness, Cell Phone, 3.5mm universal, Stereo/Mic
Part Number: 95486
Price: US$45.
----------------------------------------------------------
Harness, Intercom, GL1500, type 2
Part Number: 95260
Price: US$40
----------------------------------------------------------

Here is the info from his email to me.

Thanks.

Has anyone done business with these guys? I haven't found anything bad about them. I think $179.95 for being able to use my cell phone & nav on the phone using the stock Honda system seems to be an ok deal. What do you guys think?

This is the remnants of Kennedy. It's a company that used to produce all kinds of electronic interfaces for motorcycles. They went out of business, and one of the employees took over producing the products - but he is doing it himself by hand, thus the fair lead time. I have no information on the reliability or anything about him - perhaps someone else can offer advice?

I bought a set of Sena SMH10 Intercom dual pack headsets. They are fantastic for cellphones, your passenger and other bikers riding along side of you. They have a range of about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile. I ride a GL1500 SE with CB and intercom. I wanted to do the same thing everybody else wants to do: talk on the CB and also have bluetooth connection just in case (not that I want to talk that much). I have a Nolan Trilogy N43 helmet, so I bought the J&M Performance headset for the Nolan N43. It fits perfect and the best thing is that you don't have to clamp it to the left side of your helmet. After I installed it, :idea: I got to brainstorming, :idea: wondering if could also mount my Sena bluetooth on the left edge of the Nolan. Then I thought, there is no place for the speakers to mount, so I put it off for a while. Then yesterday, it hit me. At first, I didn't think there was enough room to mount the speakers, so I took out the cheek pad, marked where my speakers would go, took my dremel tool and carved me a little sweet spot for my speakers. I also had to notch a little of the inside for the speakers to slide on down. I thought that they may be too far from my ears, but I believe I can hear them better than the where the stock placement is. The only thing is, you have two microphone booms, but that's really no big problem. The one I am not using, I just push it out of the way. Surely, someone has done this before...right??? Anyway, that's my 2 cents. :)

The only advantage to using the stock intercom would be accessing the CB. Sena SMH10 headsets will link to 3 other headsets. Link to your smart phone using VOX. Allow your MP3 player in your phone to play stereo music through the headset. The sound quality and performance of the VOX is fantastic.

mine came from here, http://www.jmcorp.com/ . mine is an older modle,don't make it anymore,but it is still like new. just updated my head set mic and speakers for my helmets.the newer stuf is cordless and they have a nice selection of all. once you see the one you want quick check around for price would be worth the time. hope this helps,not trying to step on toes,just an option :|
