I'm assuming you have 2001-2010 GoldWing. I'd recommend looking in to something like this - then you can use the CD controls on the left cluster to skip songs or backup: J&M Digital Music Player K-Version for USB/Aux/Bluetooth® on 2001-2010 GL-1800 CD InputI also really enjoy music while riding. I am also finding that I enjoy it more playing through the speakers than through the headsets. If I get into a populated area, I turn it way down or switch to the headsets. I do get tired of trying to keep good stations and they seem to fade out or get static. That's a pain. I have tried Pandora from my phone and plug it into the aux cable but that also sometimes shuts off. I am thinking about a small MP3 player and plug it in to the Aux cable. My problem is knowing how and where to find music to download because I would like a nice assortment.
Thanks William, yes, I have a 2006.I'm assuming you have 2001-2010 GoldWing. I'd recommend looking in to something like this - then you can use the CD controls on the left cluster to skip songs or backup: J&M Digital Music Player K-Version for USB/Aux/Bluetooth® on 2001-2010 GL-1800 CD Input
Do you have a CD collection? You can "rip" those CDs on to your PCs with music software and them copy them to your player. I've done that. For music I don't have, I usually buy and download MP3s from Amazon.
I get it! Starts slow, roughly the same length of song as road length, then it speeds up and the next thing you know your speeding, dragging parts and all kinds of unsafe stuff. Thanks for the safety warning.I too like a lot of different types of music and almost always have it playing while riding. Just remember this: NEVER EVER listen to Freebird while riding the Dragon!!! Bad things can happen...
Long time ago they offered lifetime on your xm. i bought 2 one for my truck and one for my bike. I believe you were able to transfer them up to 3 times free and started charging after that to swap out. Now i hear there is some litigation going on, hope it doesn't involve me.Tell us more.......
Wow, what did you use to get all the music?I usually listen to the radio, but if I can't find anything that I like, I switch over to my phone storage.
You guys got me wondering, so I checked and have over 50 gig of music and over 6500 songs.
If I need a change, I've got 650 gig and just over 100,000 songs on my computer that I can swap out with.
My 2005 yellow bike came with a Garmin GPS that had a "lifetime" subscription to XM but, when I went to update, it cancelled itself until I verified subscription.mine is free
