Boombox GTS

Just curious. Anyone with the new system, what's your take on it now that you have had time to toy around with it? This has me curious in the event that I end up upgrading this year.

I love it. I came off a 2012 Street Glide so the radio on this is light years ahead.

GTS is Great.

GtS is great but some dealers and staff don't have a clue. Had to educate some of them.

system is awesome! Never used Apple Play before but works awesome on the bike. Huge improvement for Harley and big advantage over Indian for sure. Even if you don't use the Apple Play the new system much improved over last years

For the life of me, I dont understand why they dont support Android Auto, pisses me off. I'm pretty certain to be trading my 2018 FLTRU for a 2020 version in the fall regardless.

How does GTS sound compared to the previous gen audio?

Not sure if it's been reported here, but the GTS radio is now backwards compatible for the 14-18 bikes, Soundz has come up with a harness that makes it a plug and play after the unit gets flashed.


Found this on HD.Forums

Who/how would the flash be done? Not sure a HD dealer would or would be allowed to do it or does Soundz do it?

I personally don't feel its worth the prices of admission to swap in a GTS to an older bike. I mean I have a 2019 with the new radio and like it but the $2000+ for the radio and everything to it get working is pretty steep.

Well, it this follows historical trends............. Soon you'll be able to buy used GTS head units for $1K or less. Too many bike audio enthusiasts that are probably going to pull the stock units and put in aftermarket anyway

I waited 1 year on my 2015 FLTRX and then snagged up a 6.5 to replace the 4.3 for a whopping $700

@wevsspot

That would be a little more reasonable and worth it. Plus if it came off of a bike you would be able to skip the whole part I read that you have to have the new radio connected to a bike and flashed for US use.

I'd rather have an OE radio....but to me ALL aftermarket radios look and feel cheap. Like they belong in a 1996 Honda Accord.
