Default No iPhone? Easy way to connect an Android device via Bluetooth. 1 min video.

For you guys and gals that don't have an iPhone or iPod. Here is a really short video I made, that shows how to connect your Android smartphone to your Victory. My Samsung Galaxy S3 works perfectly. Stream Pandora, XM (paid) or your own music saved on the microSD card.

I agree, it does get frustrating how everything revolving around Apple products, even though I have iPods, iPhones, Apple TV's, and iPads.

I bought one of these dockboss air devices, got it home and was upset at the fact I can't advance/back up to the next/previous track when using this device.

Not to hijack the thread, but if anyone is interested in this device, I'll sell it to them cheap. Just message me.

Great video though. We definitely need more vids like this..

Take care!

Ok, watched the vid, you had to use the ipod connector for the vic with the docboss thing? I am no good with this stuff, never used bluetooth so bear with me. And what holder are you using for your phone?

The Dockboss air connects to the iPod connector on the bike. It will communicate with your smartphone using bluetooth. As far as the phone/gps mount, you will need these three items.

I currently use an adapter and stuff my phone outta harms way in my compartment(xct), but i like the bluetooth option for when my phone is charged and can just leave it in my pocket.

Thanks for the vid.
