Hi now have 2 sets (4) of these S20 as I have multiple helmets Arai and Shoei. Whilst its a better system than Shark i had before - my main request is improved firmware
So setup and firmware update 1.1.1 via a Mac 10.9.4 were easy and so was installing the app on my iPhone - but after running it for a week - i feel a firmware needs to be released to allow USERS to have more choices - I operate a Sena SR10 for PTT long range radios + Apple iphone + Zumo 660 GPS + pillion intercom + bike to bike for 3 bikes in our group + radar detector my wish list is : - 1)the hierarchy of cut-ins is very annoying for me they way it is now - and i want to be able to decide what can override what - not have SENA coders decide it - we need a firmware update so in my phone 2) the apple iPhone default audio output at max is too low (compared to the ear piercing beeps for max volume reached for example) and songs can only be faintly at best - so i have now had to add a new folder of MP3 into my Zumo 660 and run all the songs from the GPS to get good volume where music volume matches the Sena beeps volume. 3) for me the tap twice to activate voice commands does not work well - i find on the Shoei if i raise or lower my visor the Sena-Girl will ask for a command and i have to say cancel too often - firmware update needs to specify if the tap sequence is short interval small tap and not just sensitivity 4) the ambient sound thing is mono from the left side only and subject to wind noise if riding 5) three phone speed dials is not enough - we need to be able to store 5 at least so each rider in the group can have a number and other numbers like home can be in there too 6) the radar detector runs in via the SR10 Aux 1 and it is not useable because the detector carrier wave constantly runs for 20secs or more after detecting a signal and cuts out other devices 7) I found that getting all features to work was not possible and had to disconnect the radar detector - something i really wanted to have on audio and not rely on an LED - so my wish for SENA coder team is allow the SR10 cut of time to be shorter and lower on the hierarchy list - see my note 1 above.
overall its a great unit but desperately needs a new firmware update with more USER settings via iPhone or Mac/PC
Yes, I recommend this product.
