Ducati DVT MTS Bluetooth and Multimedia system (2015 DVT)

So reading through the manual I can't find any instructions on how to answer a call, change volume or track. Do you guys know where to get this info? I should be receiveing my Bluetooth headsets tomorrow. If both riders are paired to the system do the same do they have to have the same music source? Does the headset need to be paired to the phone as well, or just the bike and the bike to the phone?

I will be using sena

Thanks

I've not sorted out most of the details around using it... mainly because I used for only a short time before I ran into some walls. I had it connected to my iPhone and Sena headset... but it broke things I didn't want broken. The biggest issue is that I got it to play music but it didn't seem able to deal with Audible or Pandora (the two apps I use 90% of the time while riding). It's possible I just need to know how to make them work... but it was easier to just switch back to using the sena controls short term (which work somewhat with apps).

Yeah... Seems very confusing and somewhat useless. I guess the sena controls would be best...

Info on how to answer calls, change tracks, volume etc. is in the Infotainment section of the manual - starting on page 147. You pair your phone to the bike, and each of your headsets to the bike. I think both headsets have to listen to the same music... I haven't tried two headsets yet, but I can't imagine there's any other way it could work because the phone only plays one music source at a time and the instruction manual doesn't imply anything other than 1 source at a time.

I've had the same bluetooth problems as others have mentioned, where the volume up/down doesn't work, and at least once the bluetooth just didn't seem to start up when I turned on the bike. The next time it worked. I've also had some issues with intermittent skips while listening to music - seems the bluetooth antenna on the bike isn't very good. If I just turn my head to the left (so my Sena is pointed away from the bike), I get skips in the music. Hopefully Ducati can fix this - maybe a software update, or an improved or relocated antenna. That said, I LOVE this bike... these are minor issues that I'm sure will be sorted out.

Sadly it doesn't fix the inherent Sena problem that (other than their new headset) it doesn't allow the phone to interrupt the intercom - so no GPS voice if you've got the intercom running (which my riding group tends to leave on all the time).

Which sena are you using? I have the smh5 and I could get gps directions from my android when the intercom was active but it would quit after a few minutes and I wasn't sure why. I was thinking it was a limitation of the base model 5. Maybe the smh10 can do more?

We've all got SMH10's, at least mine didn't even try to provide voice guidance while intercom'ing. The SMH20 can overlay music and intercom so it should have no problem.

I am using Scalarider intercom, and for me the trick was to connect phone to bike first and then switch on the helmet intercom system last. The icons on the bike display turned blue. To answer a call, I pressed down on the menu button, but couldn't figure out how to hang up. Activated player on, and whatever music I had on my phone started playing. A new little window appeared with player controlls.

Personally, I prefer the Sena controls over the Ducati MMI. They allow you to do more, and do it more easily.
