  1. Hello. Thanks about the guide. It is very helpful and I make the connections easily. I have 1 question. When I have a phone coming I see it on the Nav 6 screen and hear the phone ring in intercom. That is working perfect but when I open a song through spotify I couldn’t hear the song in intercom. My intercom is Sena srl2 and don’t have Vox intercom feature. I’m not sure if this is the reason. Could you please help me?

    • Hi,

      I never used Spotify in this configuration.
      Helas, I have no solution for your problem.

      Kind regards.
