Okay, this is not so much a review as a warning.
The Car DVR feature will delete ALL files on the device, including non-DVR files.
I lost all files created in regular video mode when I left the Car DVR setting on and plugged the device to my iMac via the USB cable. It didn't hit me that the camera automatically started recording. And that would have been okay if it only deleted the DVR files. But when I went to review the regular video I had recorded previously, I didn't see them. Instead, all I saw were DVR files filling up the entire 32 GB memory card.

This is an absolutely great product. The rotary dial is great, the ability and flexibility to clip it to either of my helmets with minimal fuss is awesome, it looks great and having FM radio is awesome (since my mobile carrier isn't great and getting internet radio is more suspect than I like it to be).
I would only say that I wish it had a couple of more dedicated buttons (maybe one for the FM feature). Also, it would be nice if the device manager software was more like Garmins' device manager software (aka, more polished, more professional looking, can automatically detect devices, etc). It's weird that I need to tell it the model before it proceeds to identify it. But this is minor quibble.
Right now, I'm using it to pair my phone and to listen to FM radio. I'm currently working on a way to hear my auto GPS' audio (Garmin nuvi 2595LMT).
And that is the warning. The GPS feature on this headset will only work on those GPS that have the AD2P Bluetooth feature, which none of the current Garmin nuvi models have. The Bluetooth on the current Garmin nuvi models only has the HFP feature to pair it with a Bluetooth phone. Some older Garmin nuvi models (like the 765T) did have this AD2P feature and those will work. Otherwise, you have to get their terrible Zumo model for the Sena to pair with a GPS. I'm currently looking at a way to connect a BT AD2P adapter to the speaker wiring on my Garmin nuvi. Once I can get this to work, I will be a VERY happy camper.
BTW, I had purchased this before realizing it wouldn't pair with my GPS (my excitement over being able to hear my auto GPS blinded me). I just assumed that because it said it paired with Bluetooth, that this was all I needed to know. So I've learned that just because something says Bluetooth doesn't mean it will work (since there's also different versions of Bluetooth). It was a hard lesson learned. And RevZilla gave me incredible support when I told them of my story, which is something I've rarely seen anywhere else except mom & pop stores. So RevZilla will have a good portion of my business until they do something to make me change that (which I doubt).
