cell phone

Post by toanogreen » Sat Jul 21, 2018 3:46 pm



I want to use my cell phone with my stereo. I had a set up on my 1500 that switched from radio to phone, but it doesn't work on my 1800. I have a Bluetooth set up on one helmet but it only works with the phone. I like the corded setup when I use the radio and would like to use that for the phone as well. Help please.

It depends on how much you are willing to spend. There are a few posts here from those who have built up their own systems that work quite well. On the other end of the sprectrum is the Sena 10s and the Sena Freewire which will do what you want but be prepared to spen upwards of $600.

As I said, you can glean a lot of good information here from the do it yourselfers to develop a system that does what You want and not force you into what someone thinks you want.

Do you have the auxiliary cable in the left pocket? Hook you phone in that and use the auxiliary button on the radio and a 5 pin din cable from helmet to bike.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

Will using the plug in left fairing pocket allow you to talk? I know you can use it to play music but I didn't think you could talk. Also the phones are so large now mine will not fit any more.

No, it's a listen only - you can play music from the phone, but not use it to talk on.
