Default XCT 2017 sound system

One of the reasons I bought the 17 model was the upgraded sound system. Effectively it's the Magnum sound system with Bluetooth. Yesterday I dropped 1600 tracks onto a usb (root folder) and went for a loop ride today. The usb plays tracks only in alpha order, no shuffle. Going through the manual and playing with the controls, shuffle only appears to be available for a connected iPod. Hard to believe that the sound system controls are so basic. The Bluetooth side works OK. Another ride planned for tomorrow (any excuse) to play with it a bit more. Any thoughts?

I had an old Ipod Nano 4th Gen hooked up to mine. That was what I was jamming out to when the drunk driver took me out. It worked great! The Nano even stayed charged when it was hooked up. I only wish that the lower fairing cubby hole locked so I didn't have to keep removing the Ipod! Good luck with it! Hope you get it all figured out!

I just googled that iPod Nano 4th generation and came up with this picture, is this the one that connects & shuffles & charges & no need to take out of the bike & skip trough the songs & volume button from the handle bar?

Probably all the versions of the ipod do this. I have an old one (one of the original ipods) I use by the BBQ, I will go and get that now and will try that on tomorrows ride. BTW, I have a mate who had a stroke a couple of years ago, he has never ever been on a bike. Taking him out tomorrow.

Right, found my old one, and dug out an old cable, charging it now. It has 799 tracks and a couple of playlists. Things are looking up. It's so old, if it works I will audit/update some of the music on it and leave it permanently on the bike. My next decision, I have Pandora on the house system, shall I get a subscription for my phone? decisions decisions....

I think Pandora is a one subscription for all devices type service. Just download the app and enter your info and you should be good.

Real old iPods can not take the vibration of the motorcycle. It will kill them.

Yup....that is the one I have. It went riding 10,000 miles in 5 months and never had an issue. It is laying here on my night stand still playing away.

Good point, I will ziptie the ipod inside a microfibre cloth, that should help dampen any vibrations. Watch this space.

I bought a 60GB iPod for use on my XCT. Works great but the handlebar controls don't do anything except song selection and volume. I cannot choose artists or playlists. However, it works fine with an old iPhone 5. Oh well..
