Update:  Sena is offering an upgrade, but at $119, not the $49 that was offered last summer.  I guess that if you are purchasing these units you need to make sure that they are 'B' units that have upgradeable firmware and not the older first generations that can't be upgraded.

That is very nice of Sena to do!  The USB port allows all the unit to stay up to date with the latest upgrades for free.  The latest version of firmware even upgraded the Bluetooth to version 3.0 and now allows up to four-way conference intercom.  http://www.senabluetooth.com/contact/notice_20120402_1.php (http://www.senabluetooth.com/contact/notice_20120402_1.php)

I know that would of been extremely usefuly when my wife, brother and sistere traveled around for 2 weeks last year together.  We had to make sticky notes to rememer who was paired with which device.

I turned my brother on to this deal and he is working with Sena.  Apparently they are forcing him to pay $120 for the new unit.  Heck I'm a reseller of all the Sena stuff and sell them new for just a few $ more than that after the forum discount. 

Post up if you have been able to get this $50 upgrade option lately.  I would be interested if they are honoring the option.

Thanks!

I've seen feedback on the Sena forum that customers are having difficulty in getting this offer.  Other than that, it's all I know.  I did mine last summer when the official upgrade was out.  Maybe they're doing this on an individual basis.

Sent my Sena's in for repair and inquired about the upgrade option.  Was told that I could upgrade for $119 for each headset!  I made a plea for the $49 deal but was flatly told that the only upgrade is $119.  I agree with AlexRT, not really worth it.  Just buy a new set for a few bucks more and sell (or keep) the old ones.
