I reached Barcelona, my destination. Here I am riding with a pillion without cuts for speakers in her helmet. It seems to me that it is not really possible to add a normal com there.

Is there a way to use the pillions phone (using the phones headset) to connect to my Sena comm.

I have tried to pair the Sena to the pillion phone in "universal mode", but the pairing fails. I have also tried to use the app BTtalk, but as I see it is uses internet, not BT (in spite of the name) and it works far from stable.

Any working suggestions?

Hello bonne, hope you're enjoying your trip :thumb:
Can't think of a way to use phone (with wired headset?) and sena unit together, maybe best bet is buy a cheap pair of intercoms from a local bike shop, just to do a temporary job?  And operate on the helmet liner, make room for speakers...


having typed that, I now see you posted this a couple of days ago :roll:

I tried a few solutions now. most of them sucks actually. But the app "Helmchat" actually does the job even though it uses internet connection

It might be better to replace the pillion helmet and install a headset if it's affecting your enjoyment of your trip. The best thing me and the missus did when we went touring was sort out a decent Bluetooth comms set up. I'm fairly certain the likes of the Carberg Duke 2 modular helmet has speaker cutouts and is reasonable cheap for a helmet with a 5* Sharp safety rating (more than the Neotec 2 at c.£500)
