Bluetooth I/F with GPS apps on iphones

Anyone know if it is possible to I/F with any iPhone GPS app, and access/receive voice navigation directions from app via Bluetooth to a Sena Comm unit, or any compatible comm unit. ??

Yep works fine. I use google maps or apple maps on my Iphone through my Sena 20s quite often. You can even ask Siri for directions on the fly (assuminq she understands what you're asking) and she'll start navigating with voice instructions.

I use my Sena 10C Pro and SMH10s in a similar way...no problems EXCEPT....

You need to remember that Siri, voice interpolation and navigation in an iPhone depend on a cellular network connection - so in an area with no cell coverage (or no cellular data) this will not work.

Yes, If I need to make a call now, if not connected I usually wait till I have a tower connection, so I don’t have to touch the phone ! Run out of service quite a bit in these mountain areas of W NC !
