I just had the Sena Dongles with cable, and my Garmen 660 GPS installed on my 2013 Vision by the dealer. However, I do not hear the radio with my Sena headset. I do hear my GPS instructions and music in the headset. I have tried turning the bike off and removing the GPS from the cradle, but still am unable to hear the factory radio. After browsing the various forums, I see that some of the Victory bikes had to have the radio "flashed". Could that be the case with my bike? Is this something that I can do, or must I take the bike back do the dealer?

You may be in need of a re-flash but probably not. What is the source off the music you are hearing? Is it from your gps? Did your installer have your head sets when he installed the dongle?

The reason I ask these questions is that the dongles must be paired with your headsets. It sounds to me like your head sets are paired with your gps but not your dongle.

I had a bit of trouble getting my set up paired the way I wanted it to work but it works fine now. I would try clearing all pairings on the head sets per the directions then redo all of your pairings again, starting with the bike. You may have to take the head light out to reset the dongles. Pretty easy operation though.

When the GPS is off the bike and I turn the radio on all I hear is the sound of silence. (Considering this noisy world - it can be quite cathartic) but not what I am attempting to achieve.

Ok, so do you know if the installer paired your dongles with your head sets? You did say "dongles" so I am assuming that you had 2 installed, for driver and passenger. If so, one dongle pairs with one head set and the other dongle with the remaining head set.

First thing I would do is clear all the pairings from your head set or sets. Then I would take the headlight out of the fairing. If you have 2 dongles disconnect 1 of them. To reset the dongle turn the key on the bike on or to the accessory position then hold the button on the dongle down for like 10 seconds. The flashing light on the dongle should change patterns.

At this point turn your first headset on and enter the phone pairing mode on the headset. The dongle and headset should pair automatically.

Now turn the bike off and remove the paired dongle from the wiring harness and set aside.

Plug in the dongle still in need of pairing and repeat the above procedure with your second dongle and head set.

Plug both dongles back in. At this point you should set up the radio to use the dongles. I believe the directions say to turn the external speakers off, set the volume to 15 and the bass and treble to neutral. I have found that,with the new firmware for the headsets, the volume, bass and treble settings have little to no effect on the headset.

You should now be able to hear the motorcycle radio or anything working through your motorcycle radio through your headsets.

At this point you can pair your cell phone or GPS if wanted. I would caution you to read the owners manual before doing these pairings as they need to be done as a specific type of connection.

Good luck!
