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.
