don't know what model bike you have. Owners book will tell you.
You need to buy a 30 ipod cable and if you want a bluetooth device. Make sure you have unlimited data plan. Do what I ask in red letters

Please do what he asks, he will hound you until you do.

The Tune2Air works for Bluetooth connection, but you cannot control tracts from the handlebar, volume only with a Samsung phone. Another idea some have done is to buy a used older iPod, you can find them on eBay or Craigslist for around $30. Those always work with this connector.

I'm using a bluetooth receiver that plugs in to the power plug in the fairing. It has a 3.5mm pig-tail built in that I connect to a 3.5 mm cable that I ran from the plug in that's inside the fairing up the handlebars and a female-to-female 3.5mm adapter. The bluetooth receiver has buttons on it to change songs as well as pause/play. I am using this with my Samsung note 5 running Pandora or playing stored music.

This is total bullshit. We are forced to buy a crappy iPod to be able to listen to our own music and skip songs via the handlebar controls! This is the first thing that I don't like about Victory. Why can we not just plug in a flash drive like on Harley's and almost every other stereo made since 2010 ? I'm really frustrated with this crappy stereo.

Agreed... Who doesn't want to use an iPod though? They work flawlessly for music! Even better just buy an iPhone and your music is always with... Phone charges while riding... I have had a cell phone since 1995, an iPod since the early 2000's and an iPhone for around 8 years. If I could have them both combined years ago I would have saved thousands on music. Why do you not like Apple products? When you own the computer, the iPad and the phone it's awesome.

I don't like apple products because of all the B.S. you have to go through to get your music on iTunes before apple will even allow you to use your own music. Stereos are capable of doing everything with only a flash drive that you have to use an iPod for on victory but apple obviously paid off victory to intergrate their piece of crap into the bike. I own days and days of music I don't want to have to reformat it all to work on iTunes when someone should just make a flash drive cord that plugs into the same spot instead of iPod it would do everything the iPod does only cheeper and easier. APPLE SUCKS!!!

I've never had problem with iTunes. I get my music from different sources, open iTunes, import it, then sync to my iPod, iPad, and iPhone. No reformatting needed, but you can if you wish.
