Default iPod and Aux wiring

Hopefully someone knows the answer to this. My question concerns the iPod cable in a 2012 CCT left glove box and hooking up an aux audio cable. The directions that came with the Victory aux audio cables tells me to to plug into a connector in the fairing that contains two little black covers (dummy covers to cover unused plugs). I couldn't find anything that remotely resembles the unused audio connector black plugs in the fairing. My service manual makes a comment that an iPod connection uses both audio connectors, where a device such as a MP3 player would just use one of the connectors in the fairing. Since a Cross Country Tour comes with a iPod cable in left glove box, can I assume that I can't hook up an aux audio cable without unplugging the iPod connections first? Am I missing something? I did a forum search first but didn't come up with anything.
Thanks,
Mike

That is a safe assumption. My understanding is that there are 1 "set" of aux audio connectors in the fairing. Standard XC will get the extension cable and run things back to the right saddlebag. The XCT has the short cable and runs it to the Hard Lowers. I am unaware of a "quick" change to swap between Aux or IPOD. I am sure more will chime in and there may be a Y type cable setup out there that somebody has created to be able to have both.

Default Y cable

If anyone has information on the connector type for the iPod connector, I can make a y adapter. You'd only be able to use one at a time, but it would allow a one-time setup for both cables. I looked online but could find no website that would help me identify the connector type. I could cAll Victory I suppose, but I have no idea on where to start.

My workaround without pulling the fairing apart was to get a 30 pin bluetooth receiver and also a 30 pin to 3.5 mm. If all your going to do is stream music this is the easiest and cheapest setup that I could come up with.
Pros
Bluetooth works with my iphone 5 and I also have a 3.5 mm bluetooth transmitter I use on my bmw for the xm radio
Sound quality is excellent with both
Cons.
Cannot control the tracks like you can with an ipod hooked up direct to it

Works out good for me. I usually leave the xm radio on one channel and let it play or my phone goes to pandora and plays

Do a search on amazon for 30 pin to bluetooth or aux 3.5 mm and it may be the solution you didn't know you were looking for.
