Wanted to say THANKS to Sena. Had an earlier model of the SMH-10 headset that was about a year old and it wouldn't stay synched with the BlackBerry via bluetooth. Send the unit back to Sena and they returned a new and upgraded SMH-10B (USB) headset with no questions asked. Great unit, terrific customer service from Sena.

Sena has released the SMH-10B update code version 4.0.  Along with that it has also updated the 'Update Manager' software.  Unpredictable results will occur if you don't update the updater software.  Just updated both the manager software and the firmware on mine.  Download the update manager first and get that installed then update your first unit. As an FYI, when it asks you if you want to update another unit, say yes, but don't download the image again.  It will fail. You need to use the image that it downloaded previously.

You will need to be registered on their site in order to get the updated code....

I updated our units a couple of days ago as well as the SR10, went smoothly.  I tried it out last night and worked as it should in the garage.  I am heading to north GA tomorrow and will see how it does.  I run my radar and GPS 660 into a Mixit2 and have that wired into the SR10 so now I am wireless.  I don't really care about having the phone connected.  After I did the upgrade I did do a factory reset on both headsets and the SR10 to start fresh.

Folks, do you need to do serial updates to 4.0, or just download the 4.0 update?

Good question.  I would think that as long as you are using the most current updater then you would be ok.  I haven't heard of anyone bringing that up in the Sena forums.

Jim, thanks for your reply. I believe that to be the case, as well. Guess I'll try it and see what happens. Has anyone downloaded to Vista, 32 bit, system?

Follow up to my last post: Sena doesn't recommend and does not support Vista in any bit flavor for the 4.0 download. Also, 4.0 is cumulative so no worries if you have less than code 3.xx currently.

Thanks for the update on the code.  Too bad you have Vista...

Just to be clear, the only way I can use a radar detector with the Sena unit is to buy a Mixit also?  I don't really care to use my phone while riding, but wouldn't mind plugging in my iPod and possibly a GPS.

If you have Vista you can just choose the Windows XP version and it will work fine with Vista.

I guess the lack of the cables weren't clue enough?  Just kidding.   ;)   I've seen issues with USB ports that defy description.  So what did you do?  Remove the wireless USB thingy and then it saw the device?

I just updated to the latest (4.1) software. I have Vista and used the 64 bit windows 7 software manager, it worked fine.
