    Hi All
    My first question, I’ve had a look and can’t see the topic on the forum, so here goes.
    I have a Sena SRL2 an iPhone 11 and Nav6 on 2020 XR.
    Wanting advice on pairing these items?
    I want to maintain Nav6 wizzy wheel functionality, answer/make calls plus play occasional iPhone playlists.
    Is this combination even possible?

    There are many youtube videos on the correct way to pair everything up. Many people claim that things don't work afterwards because they have not set their phone up correctly.

    Thanks, that’s a great suggestion.
    I use YouTube stuff all the time, never thought to look for pairing advice.
    Are there any particularly good bloggers and any to avoid on this topic?

    I just spent ages watching every video before I even got the bike. I have no problems with mine now.

    Connect your phone to the TFT, connect your intercom to the TFT.
    If you feel you need to, connect your intercom to the Nav as an intercom and NOT a phone.
    Do not connect your phone to the Nav.
    No need to connect your intercom to your phone.
    TFT is the master here, Nav is secondary.

    If you do have problems it is most likely to be an IOS issue. Many people have no idea how to set up their iphone to work properly.

    Well I now have my bike, I’ve successfully set up the coms. Made the Nav6 the ‘hub’ paired the phone and headset to it. Then connected the Nav6 with the bike. Sorted everything works as desired.
    Thanks for the helpful advice
    As for the bike, it’s so much fun to be riding again. Just need to work on reducing the chicken strips 😁

    What I found, whatever device your are not busy pairing, make sure its off.

    So if you busy with your phone to TFT screen connection, make sure your headset and GPS bluetooth is off etc etc... Makes for a cleaner connection and no confusion between your Units.

    In the end I disconnected my NAV 6 from bluetooth. I play music from my iPhone, using the control wheel on the bike, via TFT screen.
