Boom iPod interface

Anyone added this? How hard was install? Where does your iPod/iPhone ride and connect?

I went with the HDPD Plus. It gives me full control through the handlebar controls and is a good bit cheaper than the HD version. Easy installation . . . plug in the main harness, hot and ground, mount to top of radio, and route the dock connector. I set mine up to keep my ipod in the right fairing compartment but they sell an extension cord that you can use to put it in the saddlebag

Haven't heard of that one. $150 less than boom audio. Are you pleased with it?

I'm very pleased with it. I have never used the HD version, so not sure what the differences are. I know they connect to the radio a little differently, but the dock connector is the same, it charges my Nano, and I can change tracks, etc with the handlebar controls. I used the Ipod through the aux connector a few times before I added the interface. It may be my imagination, but seems like the audio quality is better with the interface. It took a little time to fit the additional wiring in the fairing, but that was probably compounded by the fact that I added the Navigation Interface at the same time.

I don't care for the location of the HD interface connector. Moved it out of the saddlebag into the TP. The HD has some flakiness to it though. Will stop playing for no reason and come right back on most of the time. Once in a while it quits playing altogether. Selecting playlist will start it over.

I also run the HDPD plus and really like it I can't remember the last time I used the radio. The one thing that would be nice is if the wire harness was longer that's a lot of wires you have to bend out of the way to get the fairing on

So does y'all's iphone go in your glove box? Is it wire free? I don't want a lot of wires everywhere. I'd like to be able to charge my phone while listening to pandora.

I don't have an Iphone, but the only wire you can see on my interface is the dock connector wire. Nothing plugs into the front of the radio. It all goes in the back inside the fairing

There's just a cable that plugs into your iPod or phone I drilled a hole into my left glove box and ran it into there. The wires are all inside the fairing and if you don't have a ultra there's not near as many wires in the harness

I have the HDPD plus. I have the connector go in to the right compartment on the fairing. Just plug in my Iphone.
Does anybody else have this probem. When you shut the bike off & then turn it back on your music starts at the beginning again instead of just resuming where it left off. Is this normal.
