Ha, no I honestly haven't had to do anything with Bluetooth (thank god). However, I'd counter that others have working implementations of the protocol, it's just a matter of time until the issues are ironed out. There's always headsets / situations etc.. that are probably not accounted for during testing. So I'm sure they're probably scrambling to address things. Also, I don't believe they've added "bluetooth" to any other bike in the past, so this is probably all new to them. Who knows how small / large their software group is, and what kind of testing conditions they were able to cover given their production timeframe. /Shrug.Yous guys really need to cut Ducati (and BMW) some slack. I'm sure you "software engineers" are aware of what an outdated and POS communications protocol Bluetooth is but for everyone else the problems you are having is more an issue of weakness in the Bluetooth interface and not Ducati's implementation. Bluetooth can only communicate over two different channels or profiles. HFP and A2DP. HFP (hands free protocol)allows a basic phone interface. A2DP is designed for communicating with things like MPG players. Think music. When for example you pair with your iPhone you just used up both profiles and that's it. Try to talk to another device and the most current will kick the last on off. On the iPhone you can use apps like A2DPblocker which kills the A2DP output protocol from the iPhone and allows you to then connect to other devices over that profile. The trick is knowing how each of your devices communicates. Sena gives you several options for pairing. The standard phone pairing, multipairing, phone only pairing (HFP only), and device only pairing (A2DP only). It's a juggling act.
How is the volume? Do you wear ear plugs?I received my Sena 20S today. Installed it in my C3 Pro in about 15 minutes, then connected to Multi on second try. With iPhone then connected to Multi was able to listen to music, use turn by turn voice guiding routing, and make and receive phone calls. Haven't figured out the best usage of the multi interface for it all, but the Sena interface and using Siri works easy enough. Haven't gotten into all of the capabilities yet of the 20S, but the initial results are impressive.
You need to delete the headset profile from your phone, so that the only available option for the headset to connect to is the Ducati Multimedia System.
No problems with the volume, plenty loud once I turned up the phone volume. I do not wear ear plugs and haven't tried it yet with any. Sena just released version 1.5 Firmware which has "smart volume control", which I believe increases volume based on ambient noise.How is the volume? Do you wear ear plugs?
I bought the AGV system that had a slick physical integration with the helmet. Worked great (flawless) with the DVT/Android for controls, music, navigation, etc.
Only problem I could not hear it at speed. Ended up returning it.
I've tried that, it doesn't work well enough for me to use it. When I had that setup, the audio would cut out if I turned my head to the left about 80% of the time. Having the controls on the bike is cool and I wish that worked as intended but it doesn't since you lose the ability to use Siri (iPhone, obviously) when hooked up that way with a G9.You need to delete the headset profile from your phone, so that the only available option for the headset to connect to is the Ducati Multimedia System.
I can save you some time... no improvement in BT with latest dash update that corrects the trip data reset.In theory, I really like the idea of having my bike be the BT hub but, in practice, it just doesn't work. I suppose I should try again since the new firmware updates.
