Not as far as I know. Directly from the phone to Sena yes, or directly from Nav to Sena yes

You don't. Buy a Sena SMH5 or the new SMH20 with FM built into the headseat :thumleft:

Or use your Sena with a iPod Nano. But it has to be a wired connection as the iPod uses the cord as an antenna. It's actually useful, since I can "tune" the antenna to the radio station. for one station, I place the iPod in my trouser pocket, for the other station higher in the frequency band, I place the iPod in my jacket pocket. I don't see how the physics with a short antenna can work properly with FM band.
I don't always drop my bike, but when I do, I prefer to drop her in front of a crowd

Used to do it but always forgot to charge the Ipod, then started streaming the radio station via my cell direct to Senna, work great even if you are out of broadcast area.

Wanted to stream from cell via Nav V to Senna

Some Garmins can do it using Eudora or some app like that

Lord Knormoer, do you know if it's possible to have the radio playing in both my helmet and the passengers + have the intercom active at the same time on the SMH5? In other words as soon as one of us starts speaking the radio mutes into the background and then resumes once our conversation has stopped.

As far as I know you can not speak and listen to music at the same time. You need to touch/turn the dial to switch between music sharing and intercom on the SMH5.

You connect your nav up to the PC and then it will show two files, under my computer same as a usb stick

Internal and SD card, make a folder on sd card called MP3 and add music to that folder

Here is a question, how do you listen to music through your nav 5 and connect your iPhone so that you can answer phone calls. This is connected to a interphone 3xt Bluetooth headset.

I can listen to music through Nav 5 no problem,

I can also listen to music from iPhone and then answer phone calls.

But I can't do both ?

Is there a specific sequence you need to connect your nav5 , iPhone and Interphone 3xt

The only problem with loading music to the sd card on the nav is that the card is only 2gig, and you cant use a bigger sd card, as your maps are loaded on it.  >:(
