I have the Alpine CDE-149BT and so far it has been great, I used the Hawg Wired install kit with the controller so the handlebar controls still work. If you check around you can usually pick one up for around $350.00 I even sold my factory HK on flee-bay and got $325.oo it.

Subscribed. Interested to see the recommendations as I am in the same boat of needing (wanting) a good head unit with Bluetooth.

Just installed the KDC-X997 and it is amazing! all hand controls work (need to also get adapter) and display colors are adjustable to perfectly match and also see in all conditions. Has ever foreseeable option you can imagine and sound has to be heard to believe how much better than stock it is..

I went with

  • Pioneer MVH-X560BT
  • PAC-SWI-RC
  • Scosche instal kit
Two issues, first, my job has kept me out of town so I have no been able to finish up. Second, my Hogtunes 40.4 amp hasn't been what it should be.

I just need a few hours. My thread on the install is at here.
Do you have a protective shield for the radio?

What are you using to control the radio from the hand controls?

Can the lettering be seen in the sun?

No. Not yet. I have an idea how to make a very simple shield for a few cents. More later as install progresses.

What are you using to control the radio from the hand controls?
Scosche HD7000B Factory Integration Adapter for Harley-Davidson
Fits select 2006-up Street Glide and 1998-up Road Glide models (single-DIN)
Paid 1/2 MSRP with purchase of head unit from
Here

Can the lettering be seen in the sun?
I have not had it beyond my garage and driveway. So no real world riding experience. My impression is that brightness will not be a problem as color and brightness are both controllable.

A lot of people over look this model. It does have every option available intergrated.

Was planning on installing this Kenwood unit. What adapter are you referring to ? Something besides the hand control module ?

Your gonna love that unit! Really is amazing. Im sure the others are just as good but I never thought the head unit would really make that big of a difference and have been amazed how it now sounds.
