Ipod Install

So the Ipod mod is installed on my bike, and low and behold, I can not use my Ipod. The system will only play the chip units. and not the hard drive Ipods (old school looking units). Had to spend an extra 175 bucks for a 16G nano. So if you have the old school style Ipod, be advised.

are you sure about that? i was under the impression that it would play the older hard drive models, but it would give you a warning before hand to let you know that it was not recommended.

besides, putting a hd model on your bike is just asking for trouble. they are not made to withstand the vibes that these bikes put out.

page 1 of the included manual:

Quote:
if the audio system recognizes a device other than an iPod nano, a warning message will be displayed. To continue using a non-certified device with the motorcycle, press and hold the OK soft key to clear the warning message.
and:

Quote:
iPod classic: strongly not recommended. possible damage to iPod may result

Do we know for sure which ones have hard drives in them? Is their a list of supported iPods/iPhones?

I've been eye-ing this mod since I heard about it. I wish HD would publish manuals online for this stuff...

They all work... I tested them on mine... but you do not want the hard drive units there... the vibration would kill the drive...

You know which one those are... thick as heck. iPod classic 160g, the older bricks... can't miss it, the ones with hds are the thick ones...

iPod touch, Nano, Shuffle, iPhones, etc... all those are good to use and withstand the vibration. I think that on the shuffle you have to turn off the option that allows you to shake the unit to move to the next song or you will be changing songs without wanting to do so every time you brake or accelerate abruptly...

My ipod that has been connected to my car for years, refused to cooperate with my HK. When we first connected the ipod, got the warning, and moved on. played a few songs, turned the bike off, turned the bike on, got a warning, and nothing. installed the nano, and put old ipod pack in car. nano works and is certified to operate on the HK system. I guess my older Ipod likes MOPAR.

small correction wachuko. the shuffle will not work. it does not have the right interface. but all the others do.

i believe on the iphone and ipod touch, you have to start the music app before you make the connection though.

My mistake... I was confusing the new iPod Nano with the Shuffle. Good catch.

Shuffle:



New Nano:



I only tested with an old iPod Classic (20Gig unit), iPod Classic 160, iPod Nano 1G (the first version of the Nano that came out), iPod Nano (the new version), and the iPhone 4. And all of those worked without issues.

The one I find myself using the most is the iPhone. And I don't remember having to initiate the application before connecting. Maybe it was already running on the background or something. I will check on my way home from work (yes! using the bike today!!!)

Here's another question for those of us that haven't seen the integration... Does the act of plugging in the iTouch/iPhone "take over" the device? When I plug my phone into my wife's BMW, it locks it (I cannot use any other apps, like my GPS Nav app). I assume this is the also the case with this Boom interface?

If so, I might just go with another solution, like a Ram mount and power/analog signal interface. My nav app gives me turn by turn AND iPod/Stitcher/Pandora capabilities.
