And now it includes a built in FM radio tuner for listening to your favourite radio stations.
With station-to-station scanning and 10 station memory, Sena has added a very cost-effective and attractive feature and, like its other options, it can be used or not, thanks to a dedicated radio control button.
Enjoyment is further enhanced with the inclusion of a RDS (Radio Data System Alternate Frequencies) feature which allows the integrated receiver to find and re-tune to different frequencies used by the current active station in order to maintain an optimal signal and thus optimal audio.
A radio not only provides an additional form of entertainment but is also an expedient and cost-effective means to keep track of local weather conditions and traffic in FM coverage areas.
The easy-to-access and intuitive unique jog dial button operation (from the Sena SMH 10) ensures that it remains the worlds most user friendly and simple interface configuration currently available in motorcycle intercom systems.
The SMH5 FM has a slightly smaller form factor than the Sena SMH-10 yet remains comparable in features to the original SMH-10.
Adding further to the outstanding simplicity of operation is a voice prompt feature which provides information on battery level, volume level, on/off status etc.
Thanks to the latest Bluetooth v 3.0 and its advanced digital processing technology, riders will find the Sena SMH5 offers exceptional audio quality for both incoming and outgoing sound: the best in its class.
Regardless of whether you are talking to your passenger, listening to music or speaking on your cell phone, the integrated audio booster provides crystal clear and natural sound quality.
