I was able to use a usb splitter and had both my android phone and ipod plug in. After turning the bluetooth off on my ipod, I was able to switch between android auto and the ipod with no issues to play music.
So how did it show up?

I don't think I'd ever use it cause I stream. But I like to know how this radio works when people figure out new stuff.

I was able to stream pandora with both connected. Haven't tried any of my other streaming apps yet. Tomorrow will be a nice day to ride to find out.

You need to select headset instead of speakers. Go to audio settings and select audio routing. You can choose speaker or headset in audio routing.

@craigffb : I got THIS splitter cable from Amazon and tonight after a day of riding, I plugged it in to see if it would work. To my great surprise, Android Auto worked, AND the flash drive I plugged in started playing as well. When I plugged the splitter into the bike's USB port with only my 128GB flash drive already connected to it, the GTS switched from the SXM tuner to the flash drive and picked up playing the last song I was listening to, and it even resumed the track where it left off when I pulled the flash drive!. Then when I plugged in my Samsung Galaxy S10, the Android Auto interface started (displaying Google Maps). On the Home screen, I had the Music, Navigation and Android Auto buttons showing, and the flash drive was playing. When I used the right joystick to select the music section, it displayed the flash drive track info. I flicked up to select the media source, and it listed the tuners (AM/FM/SXM) and USB, but the Samsung GS10 (Bluetooth) was grayed out. That is to be expected with the phone connected via USB as Android Auto takes over control of the phone's Bluetooth.

The biggest problem is that cable has that big "block" in the middle of it (where it splits into the two female USB connectors)...so with that all jammed into the right side glove box, the phone didn't want to fit like I can usually get it to fit. I'm still pondering whether I want to pull the outer fairing back off and connect that cable and run the pigtails into the glove box. For the time being, I'm good with just running off the Android Auto: the flash drive is set up with about the same set of music that I store on my phone, and I can access the stored music via the MusicMonkey App (or Samsung Music I'd guess: though I haven't used that app in a long time, and never through Android Auto). I think I'll likely keep the splitter in the Tour Pak, and if I set up a new flash drive for new music I haven't yet synched to the phone, or if a passenger were to give me a flash drive with music she'd like to listen to, I have the option to use AA along with the USB drive.

The splitter you got is a bit bulkier than the the one I purchased. The additional wires does cramp up the glove box. I have also tried the USB Hub which also works just as well, but gives you a little bit more to put phones/ipod in the glove box. Glad you got it to work.

Yep: I saw that, and it seems that they may be just giving that for a CYA? It did allow Android Auto to function while a flash drive played music, so...maybe I just got lucky?

I upgraded and don't see Android Auto on there. My question: will I need to have my unit re-flashed after upgrading the BOOM GTS software?

My son just installed the new update yesterday and yes Android Auto is in this release and it works just fine with out a microphone unlike Apple Car Play.
If you are having an issue with Apple Car Play and you do not have a headset attached to your bike (wired or wireless) have your dealership go into the configuration of the software on the radio and set Apple Car Play Mic control to off. This setting will allow Apple Car Play to work with or with out a Microphone headset attached to the bike.

Thanks for the response. Do you need to install anything on your phone? I know there is an Android Auto app for your phone but I was under the impression you didn't need that. Also, do you have to turn off Boothtooth or disconnect the phone from the bike so it is only connected via USB? Struggling to figure it out.

I believe that is just if you have a wired headset, isn't it. I use a pactalk Bluetooth which connects to my phone but still won't connect to the " all hail " harley boom gts.

I have had it for a week now and still haven't figured it all out. got the google maps to work but haven't got the turn by turn voice yet. got the music from phone using spotify, will probably just use the packtalk hooked to the phone anyway because I use rever to chart my routes and get directions. I used the packtalk with waze mapping around town with turn by turn thru the helmet. but will be leavin Monday june 1 for a 18 state 8000 mile trip should have all this figured out when I get home in august.
