I have the same issue. My phone is connected to Zumo XT (for garmin drive and phone) and my Sena 20S EVO is connected to Zumo XT. I have updated firmware on all devices. I noticed that intercom is cut off when there is sound from the Zumo XT - route instructions, speed limit sounds and warnings, etc. If I muted the sound the issue was still present. I had to disabled voice navigation and also disabled driving asist options to make it working. And in Sena headset I have audio multitasking and these kind of settings properly set. I hope they will fix this.

I know what you mean, but this is the way that it works, and I hope that they don't 'fix' it.
If you think about it - it is a stanav - it is giving you time critical information - ie it has to tell you to take the next left turn, before you actually reach it. If it cannot alert you in time, it isn't doing its job. So it cuts the sound to anything that it regards as not quite as important.

In my experience, it doesn't cut out phone calls though.

If the voice prompts are not as critical to you it gives you two options.
Turn voice prompts off.
Use the mixer to turn the navigation prompts down.

Personally, I think that it the right combination of priorities.

I think it is a fault.

If I pair my Zumo as GPS with my headset then when it talks and I’ve got an intercom conversation going on my intercom is lowered in volume and the Zumo talks over it loudly but it doesn’t cut it off.

When it cuts it off it takes a couple of seconds afterwards to reconnect which is a pain.

Perhaps I forgot to mention that when it cuts off intercom in doesn't automaticaly connect it back. This was critical in my case. When I was driving through subburbs it was constantly alerting me about where to go, what is the speed limit, then that the speed limit is going to change, and again where to turn, speed limit... if I wanted to reconnect intercom I had to press the button on the helmet. So most of the time I was driving with one hand :D

If it would automaticaly reconnect intercom that this would be acceptible. Better solution would be to just play all the sounds (satnav and intercome) at the same time. My Sena 20S EVO has audio multitasking and this should work like that. Not to just cut intercom in the middle of talk. My opinion anyway.

Hmm. Ok. That doesn't sound right - if you have the mixer volumes set appropriately.
Maybe my wired autocom is the device that is cutting the sound for me.
I'll bow out of this - my experience isn't the same as your, so I am not helping.

But just checking - is your headset paired to the Zumo ?
When there is only one BT headset, everything has to be paired to the Zumo.

(When there are two headsets involved, I don't know how that it achieved. I think I read that the first has to be paired to the Zumo, the other has to be paired tot he first - but the headsets have to support this mode opf operation. Not all do.
But I have no experience of pairing two headsets.)

I have my headset paired to Zumo XT, and my mobile phone is also connected to Zumo XT. My pasenger headset is paired with pasanger phone and NOT connected to Zumo. My headset and pasanger headset has intercom connection between each other.
I think that this is either SW related (could be Sena or Zumo) or there is some setting with strange name that we didn't find set correctly. For me it is also not critical, I am OK with that that I have only visual assist on Zumo. Eventualy this will be solved...
