Default Tell me about music options

The Vision is my first bike equipped with a radio and I love it..except for all the commercials.

What are my options reference the aux cable in the glove box?

I have an ol' school flip phone (job provided, aka free), so no music source.

Whatcha got?

You can use a variety of I-pods. I have a Nano, it stores more music than I can listen to in a week. All the controls work with it too. I also use my I-phone.

My passenger plays the harmonica.

Would that be the music of Rogers and Hart? Roy Rogers and William S. Hart? Hoo Boy, that gives away my age.

I got the Victory IPod cord #2878628 today. Hook up was a piece o' cake.

Daughter gave me her old Nano (not used since getting an IPhone).

Transferred some favorite CD songs to ITunes and also bought a few.

The sound is awesome, so much better quality than FM radio!

Got to love digital music

go to craigslist and look under electronic for a 3rd generation ipod the lager the Gb the more songs you can have. You can down load enough songs so you will not hear the same one for five days. Do Not Buy One with hard drive cause it will lock up on you.
Get a account with itunes or you can down load your cd's if you have them. Now you can hear the music you like

Nano works great. Since you got the iPod cord you can create playlists 02, 03, 04 etc under iTunes's and load your play lists of songs so that your console buttons now trigger the assigned play list. For me 02 zeppelin when no traffic, 03 heavy metal for the non HOV ride, 04 classic rock with some country, 05 scenic view music. You get the picture. 1 will play all songs but best to dig into the owners manual. While the sound system is prett good, I really like the Ness Honkers at about 2800 and accelerate. Hehe
