Sena sm10 is a bluetooth receiver that will plug into the 5 pin din so you can here it over the speakers on the bike.

The Sena SMH10 by itself only plugs into a helmet, using one of the helmet "bases" that Sena sells with the unit or separately.

Sierra Electronics used to sell a device that would interface with the bike's wiring under the fairing, basically into the "5-pin" system, but it required a modified Sena helmet base in the left cubby and a second SMH10 plugged into that. I believe I have one of the last one of those devices made, and I had to get a special base shipped from the UK and send it to Sierra to have it modified.

What I'm actually looking for is a bluetooth receiver plug in that will play thru the wings speakers.i know they make one that's wired into the aux cable in the left pocket, but AM thinking someone had to make one to plug into trunk usb in place od an ipod.

Electrical.connection sells a bluetooth module that the 3.5mm aux plug in the left pocket plugs into. You simply switch to aux and you can pair your phone to it and it's done. It works great, I put one on my 2005, all the music I have stored on my android phone I can listen to anytime. It's also great for turn by turn directions from your phones map app. With shipping it's like 45bucks. It plugs into the bikes oem wiring harness under the storage pocket I use it alot.

The sm10 is only a transmitter. It will transmit audio from the bike or gps or mp3 or radar to your helmet receiver. I have the sena 20s and 20evo.

Does the j&m transmit to a helmet bluetooth device?

May I ask why you want one to put in the trunk to the connector for a ipod? I have my ipod there, but also the one kinda like the one That electricalconnection has. I can switch between then and play either one with a push of the AUX button on the trike.

Okay, so I'm gonna parse the query; perhaps I misunderstood the intent (wouldn't be my first time...); this is for the 2012 - 2017 setup...

As the OP wrote, the USB connector is an input that can be used for...

-- iPod input, via cable

-- generic USB stick that decodes the data on the stick (e.g. MP3 or WMA files) into music you hear when the 'aux' channel is selected.

You're thinking of something like this (watch the video...)

I'm not certain I've ever read of someone doing this, but if the output simulates the second bulleted item above, then the answer seems to be that it would.

That is what I'm considering. I know the left pocket BT receiver is ready enough to install, but was thinking this would be simple. Just plug & play as you need it. Thanks to all four your responses.

Unless the Panasonic radio on the bike isn't able to exactly decode what that USB 'stick' (receiver) is trying to accomplish.
