Re: 2018 MexTrek #8, Oct 20th - 23rd 2018

For anyone considering a Garmin InReach and wondering how you would use it to interact with the outside world, I thought a live example might be helpful. A friend of mine is using the InReach to track his bicycle ride from Dallas to Virginia. If you click on the link below, then click on the link in the header entitled, “Track Me As I Ride”, you will be taken to the Garmin page that shows his progress in real time (10 min update intervals). He is also sending custom messages to his support team at the start and finish of each day.

The best way to interface a radio with any Sena is to use a Sena SR10

Jeff is correct. You can use a Sena SR10 Bluetooth Adapter (which I use) but I would strongly recommend you get it in advance and play with it and not try to learn it sitting in a hotel in Mexico.

You need to be aware that you'll also need a specific cable that goes between the radio and the SR10. Without it your SR10 is useless. My 2 friends didn't realize this until the day before our last trip and it was too late to source them. It's not expensive but takes a few days to get. Order it with the radio.

And for convenience you may want to add the push-to-talk button. You can use the unit itself to press talk if it's mounted in a convenient location but with the optional cable it puts the button right at your thumb at the grip.

The SR10 comes with a remote PTT cable.

You're right. I stand correct.

I am so ready for this one. I have 2 tracks ready with some new stuff and want to revisit a few old tracks. Jeff, you in? Have you done the backside of Mt. Potosi yet?
