Default Ipod cord

I also have a 2016 CX with the MP3 plug. I did some research and found IPod connector cable at VictoryParts.Net. tHE PART IS #2411288. If you look at the back of the saddle bag where the MP3 cord connects there is a 2nd plug attached to the wiring harness. The IPod connector has 2 male plugs that plug into the harness. It allows you to control your IPod using the audio controls. The price of the part was $37.67 plus $12.99 shipping for a total of $50.66. I hope this helps.

For those starting from scratch and looking at getting the Vic iPod cable, possibly even an iPod itself, give some thought to swapping out the head unit itself with one of the Kenwoods that several people out there are pre-wiring for simple, plug n' play install and that preserves handlebar control functions. You might be 20%-30% into the cost of a new head unit in getting the stuff you need to end up with a pretty outdated setup. I did the iPod route for a while cause I didn't want to keep connecting and disconnecting my phone in the saddlebag. There are lots of budget friendly options to get music to play but the capability and flexibility on a new head unit is a whole different ballgame. Besides a better signal out to the speakers, there's a ton of control over the sound, digital processing to restore song compression issues, 13 channel EQ, two Bluetooth inputs, two USB inputs, a mic to do calls over thru the stereo, twice the wattage output of the stock XC unit and several more features.

With stock you can get tunes to the head unit a few different ways, some very budget friendly and some not quite so, but all seem to have a compromise with an already outdated setup. If you do one of the Kenwood plug n' play head units you won't be disappointed. If you've ever installed an aftermarket head unit in a car or truck, the Kenwood are even easier, IMO. BTW, some of them had used Pioneers in the past. The reason they all use Kenwoods are because of the digital processing and more control over the sound quality.

Where is a good place to find this Kenwood model? will It work on a Vision?

The faceplates are setup to snap right into the XC inner fairing and the wiring length sized accordingly so probably safe to say no. Imagine the faceplate could be adapted fairly easily. Then the main body of the Kenwood would occupy the space of the removed stock amp. Never taken a vision fairing off so just shots in the dark here. Contact Eric E-bo Walker on FB and ask him. He built mine and should know.

Never had any Ipod trouble. Mine is a Generation 2 and it works just fine.
