Hi Multistrada board. I'm wondering has anyone connected a phone to the DMS and been able to use the wired headphone port on the phone. I'm still old school with the wired headphones. Ive successfully connected my phone and the hand controls are effective in changing the set parameters(volume, track,skip,etc) but for some reason when I plug in my headphones I lose most of the functionality. has anyone done this successfully or paired a set of bluetooth earbuds to the dash or phone?

I got this to work. !!!!

I think it has to do with the order in which devices are paired with each other
To create a "riding" priority in my bluetooth setup I removed all of the familiar bluetooth devices from each other.
phone removed from bike, headphones removed from phone, headphones removed from bike. So it's like a fresh bluetooth start for all devices.
After removing the remembered devices from each other I started with the headphones. First I paired the headphones with the bike as RIDER1 ( I think its called rider1)(bluetooth). As a priority when riding the bike I always want the headphones to connect to the bike first before the phone. Next I connected the phone to the bike(phone device 1).Last I turned the bike off and connected the bluetooth headphones to the phone. DONE ! Now when I start my bike, my phone (usually already on) automatically connects to the bike right away. Bike on, phone on, turn on bluetooth headphones and voila , all 3 connected, music and controls through the bike controls music and directions in the headphones. ( not sure if this would work for a phone call but frankly I'd never answer a call on the bike if it did work(just personal preference))

I have a cardo pack talk slim JBL.

I don't have a passenger at the moment (poor me)

I sometimes ride with a friend who has a non-cardo comm unit.

What would be the advantage for me to connect to the ducati?

I have voice commands on my cardo unit to do whatever I want. It works fine unless I am doing about 80, then I can usually just lean forward into the windshield and it can hear me.

I don't have any experience with the helmet com systems cardo/sena. So I couldn't tell you if it would be an advantage or not. I don't use a coms system. Only Headphones. The problem for me was no control over music/directions volume track playlist etc. Now I can do these with the hand controls on the bike. If you can make these adjustments on your cardo it might not be very beneficial. I guess it just comes down to where you wan the controls.I think the dash will display phone call info too. haven't played with it though.

The pairing sequence that @cornerhungry described in #4 is accurate. Although the DMS is far from ideal, I do like it if not for any other reason than to know who is calling and be able to call the last five callers while in Touring mode using a Cardo.
Caveat: The five last callers list does not appear while in sport mode.

...but you can change sport mode to use the same display setup as touring mode.

That's true but I like the uncluttered look of the sport mode. Moreover, In touring mode, I get that annoying "Player" On function. Of course, for you guys here, I'm focusing on more important things while in Sport mode. ;)
