HELP! Software update to allow users to use only ONE SPEAKER--Cal law revision may impact sales too!
Just got the SMH10R for Christmas, and a day later after I installed it into my RF-1200 helmet this appears re some change in the law in California:
Earbuds or Headsets (SB 491, Transportation Committee): This law, among other things, makes it unlawful to wear a headset covering, earplugs in, or earphones covering, resting on, or inserted in, both ears, while operating a motor vehicle or a bicycle. This prohibition does not apply to persons operating authorized emergency vehicles, construction equipment and refuse or waste equipment while wearing a headset or safety earplugs.
I'm assuming having BOTH SPEAKERS ON in the 10R may well substantiate a violation of this law. If we could toggle sound to one speaker off (and on when for example you're passing into another state that allows for this) this would be much better than having to cut one of the speakers wiring to remove it. How about a software update to assign a button press sequence to allow for this??
I hope you're listening I just go this thing and I really like it! Thanks
