I have an 05 Wing and would like to hook up an IPOD to the audio and the power connections in the left pocket. But I would also like to hook up a remote so that I can leave the IPOD on the bike and just remove the remote. So, my needs are:
1. Power connector (perhaps Kennedy Tech or EC?)
2. Audio connector (perhaps Kennedy Tech or EC?)
3. Remote Control unit
My main concern is that if I attach the remote unit, will it cover the power and/or the audio connections that go from the IPOD to the bike.

Anyone know of IPODs that allow you to connect all three items at once (Pwr cable, Audio cable, Remote unit). Also, does Kennedy or EC provide this type of cabling?

Here is how my 20gb, 4th generation iPod is connected to my '01's audio aux system.

If you want to listen to your iPod without charging it, then you do not need either of the above. You simply connect it to the audio connector out of the left fairing pocket. As soon as you add 12v power from the bike to the iPod then you run the risk of extraneous noise being added to the audio source. Item 2 above eliminates the extraneous noise.

For a remote, this company makes great remotes that are water resistant and have a pass through bottom connection which permits charging and remote control access. They also work if you decide to just use the iPod's battery power -

The new version on our adaptors are finished. They now have an on-board ground loop isolator and line boost....and are still the same price.

I use the Air Click with my 4th gen iPod, made by Griffin, I think. Don't know if it's still available, heard it isn't. Didn't see any at the Apple Store when I was there last.

iJet's basic model works the same way. I have the Air Click mounted to the throttle with a velcro strap and it works great. I like that the buttons are raised so I can access them even with heavy gloves on.

Here is a review of the iJet 2way remote. I have one and basically like it, except the display is difficult to read, which means I have to remove it from the velcro attachment next to the ignition and hold it up in front of the FF helmet visor to read it. The one thing that I do like about it is that you can change the playlist with the remote, instead of having to get off the bike and change the playlist on the iPod in the trunk.
