Is there a simple FM radio bluetooth solution for a Sena SMH10?

Use the bike to commute to work, I have an Iphone, MP3s are good. Would like to have FM radio, something not expensive that is bluetooth that can pair to the iphone or Sena SMH10. It cant connect to the iphone directly because it goes into a waterproof case and has a cable to charge.

Been difficult to find, any suggestions for a simple FM bluetooth radio?

I use my iPhone with "tune in radio" app. I keep my phone in a pocket or most often in my tank bag. I open the app and then shut off the screen, toss it in my bag and then turn on the Sena and hit the jog dial. It automatically feeds the tune in radio app.

The down fall, you cant surf stations unless you pull over and manipulate teh phone. The good, If you have siri you can just press the phone button and say "play music" and she will switch you from tune in to your onboard music.


hope that helps, thats my solution and with 1-1.25 hour commutes each way it has worked well.

Don't want to hook up another cable hence bluetooth the Nano is possible hope the earphones do not work as the antenna for FM

Just looked it up on the Apple. Unfortunately you are correct, the earphones are the antenna, the radio will not work unless the earphones are plugged in. Too bad.

Here's something I ran across this morning Bluetooth FM Transmitter and Music Playback. Don't know nothing about it and you would have to hook up a powerpoint for it.

That wont work. That is a transmitter not a receiver. You put your radio on a certain station and connect your bluetooth so that you can hear calls through your car speakers.
