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.
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.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.
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.okay i took bike to dealer thursday they installed the up date, but when it went to download data from phone it froze up, they called moco no help filmed what was happening no help from moco. left and drove back home. was playin with phone and noticed when i turned on android play there was a real quick screen that popped up askin permision to instal, which i thought was already done. clicked on the screen boom hooked up to bike and all runs as should, road all day sat. with friends and used google maps to navigate around some tex backroads worked great. streamed spotify music all day thru bike speakers. still need fo figure if it will allow me to upload and run google maps on the boom gts and still bluetooth my cardo to phone for music in helmet. when riding sat. the spotify would only play thru bike speakers. anyone figure this out yet.
@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.So how did it show up?
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?
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.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.
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.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.
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.Thanks for the response.
