    Yup, although this applies to the CARDO, not the SENA. Three of us bought the MPOW BT Transmitter/Receiver. Works like a charm, and zero latency, meaning once the detector goes off you get the alert in your helmet immediately. I ended up going back the the H.A.R.D. system as you lose the option to listen to music once the MPOW is connected. You end up with 2 audio sources only; your intercom and the detector.

    Frank,
    I'm pretty sure that with Cardo you can assign two audio sources in addition to the intercom. You just need to make sure that the music has priority.

    I also have both the BT option, and HARD device. I just need to do some testing to see which works better for me. ALthough mine is even more complicated, as i also have my GPS Audio over bluetooth

    My Google is weak this morning it seems. Any good Canadian retailers for the HARD system? Or retailers in general that are good to get it from if it has to come from the US?

    Ive seen those, but they all seem to have 3.5mm jacks. You have a link to a 2.5? Or did you have to use an adapter?

    I got mine direct from Texas. I didn't even look for anyone with them up here.

    Texas you say. Ok. Thanks. It looks like a good system. I'm still waiting as I've had a winter full of unexpected expenses but am planning on picking up a uniden r1 for when I hit the streets this spring. Which seems like aways off still the way February has hammered the okanagan.*

    Wait till you pick the detector and then get the add on. They have different boxes for the brands/models.

    Yes. Now it's got me thinking about the adaptiv tpx detector. If I understand correctly then I only need the HARD receiver if I want to employ that system. Curious anyone's experiences/thoughts with the tpx and whether the HARD addition is needed or if the LED light that comes with it can be positioned so it's not really necessary. I'm not interested in any bluetoothing business and the simpler the better for me. I also like the design/look of the tpx, doesn't really scream radar detector if you do get pulled over and the LED light looks just like a shift light really.*

    No issues with the bluetooth on mine. The sender module plugs into the hot power and then powers the detector.

    The receiver on your helmet runs off a coin battery and it's very subtle. The key is that it's always in your field of vision no mater which way you're looking.

    Well, Dean couldn't make what you describe work and he's very clever when it comes to tech.

    US only. Damn good customer service too. My 5 year old system failed on me:

    One side of the case that mounts to your helmet (the receiver) cracked, and the screws that hold the two sides of the case would not hold the case together. So I proceeded to buy a replacement receive.r. Contacted the MFR and he said "Oh, you don't need to buy a complete receiver, I can sell you one side of the case and 2 screws for $12"................nice!

    That was with your Sena SMH-10. Cardo does allow 2 audio sources. Chia has his setup this way now. He uses the MPOW and his uniden, while chatting with us and listening to music. The only problem with this, is you can only have 1 active BT music source at a time, so once the detector goes off, it will kill any music coming from the phone and you have to stop and start the music on your phone manually, as the last BT source becomes the dominant one.

    So you can chat, listen to music in the background, but one beep (and there's a delay when switching too), and music is done until you manually stop and start it from the source. Still clunky, which is why I love my V1 with background android apps that overlay sound and does the mixing right in the phone. YAV1 is the app that I use, along with the V1 BT adapter (not the new LE adapter). This way, I only have 1 BT source, and that's my phone for both music and alerts.
