Applecar play without headset

Went into dealer after a long discussion with a sales rep from Soundz, they do audio upgrades to Harley’s, and asked them to hook up the digital technician and check off box for whim. I don’t have a whim installed, nor do I have the hard wire 7 pin for a headset. By telling the bike, either through ecm or bcm (don’t know what the digitech actually communicates with), that a whim is installed it allows the CarPlay to work. Even if you bought a whim from dealer and brought it home to install, you’d have to go back to dealer and have them flash the radio for it to work. By just flashing the radio and “lying” to it about supposedly having a whim unit is all you need to do. Can’t take calls, can’t hear or respond to texts, Siri doesn’t work or play through the radio since you can’t respond with me mic, but you can use apple nav and anyother CarPlay comparable apps you have on your phone. I also feel like the sound quality is better as opposed to Bluetooth or even wired non-CarPlay of the music on my phone. I don’t want to talk on phone and don’t really care about texts while riding; I just wanted to use my wazes app for traffic and whatnot with the nav. I’ve seen a lot of people on various forums trying to figure out ways to get CarPlay to work without the whim; I’m here to clear it up that it can be done.

Sorry guys. Apple CarPlay only works on the new gts radios on the 2019s.

Speaking of this, the next time you are in a 2019 GTS look for a wireless CarPlay tab/check box if you don't mind. I had my bike at the dealer back in October I think it was, having my comm flashed on and the tech asked if I wanted wireless CarPlay. I was standing right next to him when he asked (and thought I saw the check box)but I told him no thanks cause I always plug my phone in anyway. Just want to see if maybe he was looking at something else or if this is really and option.

Also does this deactivate the DIN plug?

I believe you can from what I understand. There is a thread about it on this forum and I saw a video on it. If I remember correctly, Soundz Customz/soundz, inc. has developed an interface that allows all the hand controls to work when installing a GTS radio in earlier Rushmore RG. I understand that the GTS radio has to be flashed, which they can do for you before install. When looking at their webpage, this interface is not listed, one would have to call them to inquire.

Does the cost make it worth whiled, for me no, as the cost of a GTS radio is high. Not many new GTS radios out there at the moment, but cheaper than a new bike. This is just my understanding and others may know a lot more.
