Ipod Interface Poll

Just wondering what the best choice is for those of you that have either the Harley Version or the HDPDPlus. Have you had any issues? Where did you mount your cable? Any issues with wiring up?

HD set up extended cable to tourpack installation the only issues is the side clip that locks into the iTouch or phone plug may disconnect the left side. Found where to set the device so don't bounce disconnecting the cable all good. Replaced twice under warranty although I did all the installation on my RGC.

I have the HDPDplusII. I ran the cable thru the backbone under the tank alongside the wire harness and thru to the left bag. I drilled a hole and ran the rubber grommet the saddlebag kit comes with. I then bought a cheap used ipod nano 8gb for $25.00. It said it was partially damaged, but upon receival i found out is wasn't but did have some cosmetic love. Anyways, I loaded my songs and when I get new songs I update it and it hasn't skipped a beat in over a year that I've had it.

Installation was easy enough and cost a lot less than the HD ipod interface option.

For those that have installed either iPod interface, do you find the volume is lower compared to playing a CD or radio with the volume at the same setting?

I bought the HD iPod interface last year and mounted it in my left glove box. Used it about 4 or five times and found that the cable would disconnect due to vibration- the locking pins on the cable end do not engage anymore (HD wants $130 for a new cable). When it does work, the controls are not very user friendly. One mistake with the controls and the phone will revert back to the first song in your library in alphabetical order. What a PITA. This also caused a distraction while I dicked around with the controls while driving.
I was just playing with it yesterday, trying to figure a way to keep the cable secured into the phone's port. For 30 bucks I picked up a bluetooth receiver made by Alureitech, plugged it into the aux port and it works fine. I may just use that from now on. I have enough aggravation in my life.

I have the Harley version and ran the cable to the right glove box. There were no installation problems; but, I would like to find a shorter cable that connects the module to the Ipod than the one supplied with the kit.
