I am NOT a techie by any means. I can run my i-pod and download music into it. there are my skills. Folders, files all that stuff, while not rocket science, is way more than I care to learn. I want to turn it on and go. I have no attachment to Apple but it is SO easy! I have a nano, don't ask what generation, I don't know. Its 3 yrs old. I MIGHT get an I-phone in the future(only because its so easy to use).
What should I get? I seem to always come back and look at the soundgate unit , then the bikeMP3(it scares me a bit) but looks complicated. Yes I am old, I admit it and don't spend a lot of time with tech stuff.
The ride is a 2008, nav,abs ,Canadian model.
As a side note, I also have a Scala Q2 set up and pie in the sky would be to have music(or the radio system) come over it

Sell me on what I should(could) buy........................................:popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::bow::bow::bow::bow::bow:

Put your iPod on shuffle/random, plug the the Aux jack into the headset jack, select Aux on the radio, throw the iPod in your left fairing pocket, and go.

Why get too crazy if you have something you like? You can set the iPod on some padding to isolate it from whatever vibration and shock there is. I think the Nano is solid-state (no disk drive), but I don't know for sure. My Sansa Clip (solid state) has ridden in the fairing pocket for many thousands of miles with no ill effects.

I'm thinking of upgrading to one of these...

But I have one of these currently...

With this remote...

Installation is about the same complexity as changing your oil.

Oh, and depending on which generation ipad you have, you'll probably need this.

I realize that all sounds a little vague, but just follow the included instructions and you'll be fine.

The Bikemp3 player is about as simple as it gets. Install, put music on an SD card, and listen.

I've had one since they came out. Never had any problem with any of them. Yes, I upgraded everytime a new one came out. I now have the version 3 and love it. I have 1,584 songs on 5 SD cards. Don't think I will run out of music anytime soon.

Plus Pete is a great guy to deal with. :bow:

I agree, why complicate the issue (and I work in the"techie" field) unless you want the extra control the MP3 provides.
