    Thank you for your suggestion. We will do the possibility of connecting SMH10 with the Cardo headset. We will keep you informed later.

    I agree, would like to be able to connect to other riders in our group that use Scala units.

    It seems to me that it would be killer to have the Sena unit be the swiss army knife of bluetooth headsets.

    Hopefully you could also look into pairing with the UClear units - I have several friends using UClear and being able to connect to them without re-investing in a UClear unit myself would be awesome.

     

    Thanks!

    It would be great to be able to connect to Scala units. The group I ride with are split between Sena and Cardio units, with a few others mixed in.

     

    Thanks...Jim

    I have a really old Cardo Q2 that doesn't even have a 3mm input jack for an iPod, and the radio reception sucks. I'd love to upgrade to a Sena, but my riding buddies all have a Cardo. Not being able to talk to them is the only thing keeping from getting a new Sena headset.

    I have recently given up on my cardo set and moved to sena but my friends still have cardos, it would be great to be able to pair up with my riding buddies. The sena seem much more user friendly and I would recommend them.

    I too just switched from a Scala to the Sena. Several friends are considering the same move but are hesitant because they can not communicate with old outdated friends with inferior communication products. I hope Sena is the 1st to allow communication with other brands, many many people would join Sena if they are.

    I want to buy a pair of SMH10's but cannot justify the purchase unless I can communicate with other systems including Interphone as I ride with a number of different groups.

    I don't think this is a feature that will ever be seen. The major brands, whether it be Sena, Scala, Interphone, Chatterbox, etc., want you to buy their units and they want your friends to buy their units.  I would guess the motivation to allow units to talk to each other, is probably less than zero from all of the major manufacturers.

    I think, in the long run they will have to. If you look at markets, in the long run the best (or sadly sometimes the cheapest) product suppresses all the other products, and if you want wo survive as a company, you have to manufacture such a product or make something that is at least compatible.

    So someday some company WILL come up with a headset that can at least connect to one other brand, and that will be a heavy advantage for that company, if their marketing department knows its job.

    And interoperability is the next "must have" for bluetooth headsets, customers want that! And the companies in that market listen to the customers, you can see that when you look at what customers wanted in the last years. First, they wanted easy handling, they got it. It was a hell to operate the first headsets, you needed to know the exact sequences to do what you want. Now, they even talk to you... Then, they wanted range. First, you got 10 meters max, now we have one and a half kilometers. After that, conference talk. Cardo started it, now Sena and Interphone also have this feature.

    Actually, people ask for interoperability, and I think, someone will listen and bring the ball to roll.

    And then, every other company will have to bring out something interchangeable if they want to keep their position in the market, and they need to do so quickly.

    Because of that, it would not surprise me to learn if the headset manufacturers already talked about a common protocol, or at the very least are secretly researching ways to do it.

    It is very necessary! In Russia a lot of the Scala Rider. Gradually, all would go over to the Sena!

    It will be a great feature for Russian market - most of riders use scala here, but it's price is too high for the same amount of features and quality.

    Riders, we are testing to intercom with other brands currently, and this function will be applied on future SMH10 firmware.

    Thank you for your patients.

    SUPER! In Russia will be a big increase in sales! I already posted the news on the main site kvadrotsiklisty Russia. This was the main question!

    My wife and I are a Scala G4 owners, but she's got the Bell Mag 9 helmet which integrates with the Sena seamlessly and we would prefer to have the seamless employ vs a Scala add-on for helmets. But I don't have a Bell Mag 9 at this point and my Scala won't be able to communicate with her Sena (if we got her one). If Sena could hook up to Scala - I would definitely buy a Sena immediately.

    Excellent News, I appreciate Sena continuing to improve the function and value of their products after purchase. That generate enormous loyalty. Thanks!

    Waiting patiently for this SW update to the SMH10R before I purchase.  Need to pair it with my wife's Schuberth SRC-S.

    What a huge feature that would be!  I can't imagine why connecting with a competing brand (Scala) would be a bad thing for Sena.  Being able to communicate with riders with other headsets would definitely make Sena the leader in the field.  I guarantee that when searching for a new Bluetooth headset, ability to communicate with Scala would convince me to buy Sena.

    So I read a little farther down and see that they're onto it!  That's great news.  I'll be ordering a new Sena next week.  I was hesitating because of so many of my friends that have Scala.

    It would be nice quick! And that is written almost a year "planned"

    Has this been resolved yet? I am looking to buy and need it to link with a Scala Cardo Q2

    Dave, nothing in the release notes for the current versions specify being able to communicate with other manufacturer's units. I've been waiting a long time for this as well. 14 months of testing seems like a long time to not have an answer yet, so it may never come.
