I would settle for fuel level and temperature, engine temp and range would be a plus.
That will take you back to the Rev screen, if you want to go to the Map screen you gotta go to navigation and down or press Button 4, AFAIK.You can quickly get back to what you were doing before pressing the presets by holding the up menu button
Can't comment on the XM radio, I don't have a radio on my bike and we don't think we have XM over here.A couple general questions:
- Is SiriusXM radio available like on previous RTs?
- Is the Bluetooth audio/music quality better than on previous RTs?
Unfortunately you can only display one of those two items on the normal display!Go into your settings and only select the info that you absolutely need for the "menu up" display. I set mine to only show the fuel gauge and fuel range.
Correct but you can whittle out having to scroll through stuff that isn't important while rolling down the road. TFT on the GS is the same even though it has plenty of room to display more info. On the GS it's under "status line content" in the setting menu. I'm guessing it's the same on the RT. I have no patience to hit the menu button five or more times just to get to the fuel gauge.Unfortunately you can only display one of those two items on the normal display!
I like the new TFT but also hope for some updates.
I was referring to having the bike stream the audio to the headset, and not the phone to the headset. That’s where you’ll see (hear) if there’s any improvement in Bluetooth quality.Regarding Bluetooth, its effectively your phone to your headset, again BMW might get in the way with the radio bit. But for me its phone to headset and its good.
If it's like the GS it sounds light years better than the '20 and older RTs but not as good as good as an Iphone directly to headset. Also the GS TFT BT cuts the max volume down compared to an Iphone direct to headset. That's why I connect my headset directly to my Iphone and use the BT receiver to trick the bike into thinking a headset is connected.I was referring to having the bike stream the audio to the headset, and not the phone to the headset.

Congrats on the new bike. Those comms units are BMW branded Sena SMH10r models and cost $199 each. You will not be able to talk with other Sena users unless they have a BMW branded one. You and your passenger will be able to speak with each other assuming they are using the other SMH10r. Good news is the Wonderwheel will control the volume on the Rider's headset with the BMW branded Sena.I have had mine now since Saturday. There is a learning curve and reading the entire manual (Yeah men don't normally do this) helps. What everyone is sharing is very useful too. Phone compartment from manual:6.37 in x 3.07 in x 0.34 in (162 mm x 78 mm x 8.8 mm). Hook latch and release in there that holds the phone are what determines size range to the left. My Galaxy Note 20 Ultra doesn't fit and the Motorrad Connected App with map mode really drains the battery. So used Dremel tool (hate that with a new bike) and cut off the latch and release. Phone fits now and wireless charger works! Contacted BMW Corporate about radio option and the next day got a reply that they had forwarded it to BMW USA. That afternoon call from someone at USA office and learned this: US bikes right now have no radio or sound system package (cables, speakers, and things for radio) due to worldwide shortage of chips and Tech. He had no comment when I said everyone but US bikes have it as standard. So if you want the radio later when they are available forget it unless you order a bike for now. There is an Update Bulletin out about this with more details (he couldn't share it with me but read it while on the phone) that your dealer should have. As a consolation prize for us Yankees the dealer is supposed to offer 2 BMW Motorcycle Comm units for your helmets at no cost. Got my salesman looking into this now.
I have one of them in a Schuberth E1. My dealer gave it to me at cost to evaluate it for him. The Wonderwheel volume control is great. The speakers use a different connector than other Senas so if you want to upgrade the speakers you will have to cut and splice. The speakers are smaller than my Sena 10r speakers but actually sound better even though they don't get as loud. It's a good headset if you don't need your music loud. If Sena pushes new firmware to their headsets to incorporate the BMW volume control profile that I have heard BMW released then there would be no reason to use the BMW headset. However, I suspect Sena will use it to market new models. Who knows.Thanks hammick. I figure I will give them a try to see how they interact with the TFT and Connected App. Right now I have a Neotec II with Sena SRL.
