I do know that with the Visions you cannot use the hard drive models. Since the X bikes share the same frame I would suggest the same.

Something about the harmonics of the bike and frame would destroy the hard drives.

You need a 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation Ipod Nano. The nanos have flash memory (no moving parts). any other Ipod (with moving parts hard drives) will eventuall fail on you due to the vibration coming from the bike.

why 1st-3rd generation and not 4th? Glad you asked.

The 4th generation ipods (Nanos, Itouch etc) have a different charging scheme. Although these 4th gen units will probably work, they will not charge while plugged into the ipod audio harness.

I have a 2 gb nano that I found on craigslist for $25 and it sounds BETTER than the radio. With the right selection of music on your ipod, you wont really needed XM.

Once you get your ipod nano, break all your music down into playlists. The Vic will show artist, playlists, songs but NOT genres. I have all my music broken down into playlists and it's a breeze tuning into what I'm in the mood to listen to.

You don't have to go with an iPod nano. Any iPod 1-3 gen without hard drive will work fine, including iPhone, and iTouch. Just to clarify.-----Metalguy

Cool

you need to buy 2 cables ($150) and ipod stays in right side bag.
the good part is it stays charged and is controled by radio controls with song displayed on dash .

Need to get the IPOD integration harness. This will have the cable needed to playback the ipod via the xc audio system. When installed, the cable will be inside the saddlebag.

It will (as mentioned) charge up your ipod as well.

It is well worth the money. The radio reception is nothing to run home to but my ipod ROCKS!!! The sound is great.

All you need to do is create your playlist via Itunes. From the control cubes, you can control the ipod volume, playlist, songs etc.

Congrads on your new XC!!
