Sound system

Post by Kboaz » Sun Jun 24, 2018 11:08 am



Is there away to install a Bluetooth system on my bike (helmet) and still use the onboard sound system for music, intercom, cb, etc? I need the Bluetooth on my helmet for my GPS, but don’t want to give up the others.
Thank you!

I just installed the Sena Freewire with the S20EVO headsets. All audio functions on the bike work just as if I was using a corded system. However, we use the Bluetooth intercom, not the one on the bike. The factory intercom causes a half second delay that can be heard through the headset making it virtually unusable. The audio quality is better (IMO) than the J&M Elite headsets we were using and others say my cb transmissions are loud and clear just as if we were using corded headsets.
