Yes, the Sena is definitely not for taking pictures & videos off the bike, the go pro is the obvious choice for that..... The big sell for me was having everything in one unit but ESPECIALLY the comms ; between units/riding buds, hearing navigation in the helmet, taking & making phone calls w/ out stopping (my wife is always worrying about me on the bike if she calls & I don't respond for a hour or so because I'm riding) PLUS the camera & video operates w/ out having to stop and turn on/off the video or look at the unit, it tells you in the helmet speakers when you've taken a picture or started/turned off the video. The Comms was the biggest selling feature for me though. Last night was riding to a new to me destination 90 miles away and it was dark & still 90F out instead of pulling over, stopping repeatedly pulling off my gloves, sweating to look at my phone, it read turn for turn Nav in the helmet speakers using Google maps off my iPhone via a Bluetooth connection, perfect! I hate being somewhere at night on the bike and slowing down looking over & over for the right street signs, always feel like I might have missed it or someone is going to hit me from behind while slowing down at night. I may add a go pro too but would really hate to be without a Sena now. I've done it the old way 30 years. Now that I'm experiencing the Comms advantages I'd hate to be without it. You can get a Sena 20S (w out video & camera, just Comms) for around $250.I can see that you're a Sena kind of guy! The reason I was leaning towards the go pro was that it can function as a reasonable camera for any other outdoor activity I choose to do (i.e. scuba diving, rafting, etc) From what I can see, the Sena seems to be exclusively used for motorcycle helmets.
