Hi,

I've just bought a Tomtom Rider 2nd edition and pairs well to the scala rider and to my sony ericsson as well.

However, when trying to make a call via my tomtom (bike stopped and tapping the scala rider to avoid going to sleep) the call seem to go through ok but there is no sound on the scala rider.

Would you know why this is happen? I'm
very interested in been able to receive calls while riding and I don't understand why I can't manage to make my phone work with the scala rider via the Tomtom.

I hope this explanation makes sense:

Scala Rider -Tomtom-mobile

So using the Tomtom I can connect to my mobile and make calls, but the sound won't come out from the scala rider but from the mobile phone. So effectively my Tomtom is used just as a 'remote control' which is a bit pointless if it doesn't link to the headphone

Hi,
Had a similar problem with my Parrot.
This was solved by following pairing instructions from Garmin using a2dp protocol

Get info from garmin website

This is a common issue with non supported headsets. However, I didn't think you got the same error with the Scala Rider. Check that the version of Scala Rider is on their compatibly list and get support from them.

I managed to get it working with a Sena SMH10 headset by pairing it as a car headset and not a bike headset. You could try this with the Scala.(http://www.bikersbarn.co.uk/Sena-SMH10-Motorcycle-Bluetooth-Intercom-Twin--Single__p-57.aspx) I also got it working with a little (non bike) Nokia headset once but can't remember the model.

I have had many discussions with TomTom about this and unfortunately you wont get it working or get any help unless the headset is on their support list. This has been my biggest gripe with TomTom and it seems unreasonable that the wont help get a motorcycle GPS working with motorcycle headsets. Except for some Scala Rider models.

I could not get Autocom or Starcom working but Sena SMH10 works a treat if you select car headset from the TomTom menu.
