    Paired with a Scala this evening (from my SMH-10R)  It worked just fine.  The audio was kind of scratchy, but don't think it had anything to do with the pairing.  I usually use earbuds, but this time the helmet speakers.  

    But wanted to report that it worked first try.  On his Scala, he was able to continue to be paired and connected to his iPhone while being connected to my Universal Pairing.  

    Thank you, Sena.

    @ Chris. As Chris W stated (and I should have caught this) only 1 universal pairing device allowed. A Sena paired to any other non-Sena is counted as 1 and if you want to pair it with another non-Sena then you have to delete the first one.

    If a Sena is paired with a Scala . . . and the Scala is paired with other Scalas in a group, Can the Sena user communicate with the other Scalas?

    Ken, LOL, pairing through association huh? Nice!  My thought are that the only thing that can talk to the Sena is what is paired directly to it.   (But I don't work for Sena and I'm no authority on this).

    Ken,

    No, it is not possible since it will be paired as a phone device (in scala) and Scala doesn't allow you to use phone and intercom at the same time.

    Universal Pairing is awesome but it doesn't solve the entire problem mixing Sena and Scala.

    It uses mobile phone channel in Scala Rider G4/G9/G9X and it doesn't allows you to use Scala's channels A and B at the same time. Would be really nice a way to pairing a Sena intercom with Scala using channels A and B.

    It would be a killer feature.

    You sure? I don't have one to test it myself, but the Cardo Scala Rider G9 (so the G9X will have it too, I think) manual says in chapter 7.1b:

    INTERCOM CONFERENCE MODE
    Add/Remove Channel “A” by tapping “A” while on a phone call to/from a call
    Add/Remove Channel “B” by tapping “B” while on a phone call to/from a call

    which sounds to me like they actually *can* connect a Cardo device to a phonecall (and thereby to a Sena) :)

    Maybe you can't alternate different brands in a group, but linking a Sena-group to a Cardo-group seems possible... Anyone tried it?

    "If a Sena is paired with a Scala . . . and the Scala is paired with other Scalas in a group, Can the Sena user communicate with the other Scalas?"

     

    Stephen Seitz is correct. If a non-Sena headset has the "Three-Way Conference Phone Call with Intercom Participant" feature that all Sena headsets have then they can use Universal Intercom to pair to the non-Sena headset and include other paired non-Sena headsets into the "phone call" with the Sena headset.

    I have the Sena SMH10 and my friend has a chatter box. would he be able to switch from intercom with me to his music? or would he be stuck on the phone/intercom with me?

    Sarah Hostetler. I'm not that familiar with the Chatter box, but the answer depends how many HFP & A2DP connections does it have. HFP is for phone or navigation, and A2DP is for music. The universal intercom also uses the HFP connection. If his headset only has 1 HFP connection and 1 A2DP connection, then just being connected to you is going to take up his only HFP connection. However, if he can pair his phone as media only to the A2DP conneciton before you guys connect, I don't see why he can't go back to listening to music when you guys aren't connected. He wouldn't be able to talk or take calls though as the HFP connection would be paired to your Sena SMH10.

    @Sarah: Depending on how the Chatterbox headset operates with the priority of what devices are paired to it then your friend should be able to switch to communicating with you by terminating the connection with your SMH10. As it is a non-Sena headset then it means that he would need to use the button operation to "end a phone call" to terminate the connection.
