Default Ipod converter for droid phones with charging!

Looky what I found!

http://www.cablejive.com/products/dockBossplus.html

This little device has a "female" ipod connector on one end, Micro plug for charging and 3.5mm audio plug. Yes it is true in my lowers I have an accessory plug to handle charging, but for summers when I remove them and add cabling to saddlebag or pouch, I will now be able to stream music from my droid phone, and charge at the same time. No playlist or controls, but volume should work.

XC owners... your IPOD is in the saddle bag with no power to anthing but IPOD right? This should fix that.

Quick fix until the bluetooth dongle is available and working.

Did anyone ever find a Bluetooth dongle?
I'm not worried about needing to charge it. I'll plugin to the a/c aux if I need to charge.

But I would love to keep my phone in my pocket and just walk up to the bike and have my tunes wireless bluetooth style, just like my truck...

Anyone purchase this yet, and does it allow the hand controls to function the Droid? NM wasn't smart enough to read.

I just got my cord in the mail a week ago and it seems to work just fine with my Droid phone. I like to stream Slacker music through it. One thing I have noticed however is that the display screen on my radio switches from "AUX" to IPOD" every several seconds. It doesn't seem to affect the stream of music in any way. Do any of you guys have this same thing going on?

What gets me as victory chargers $99.95 for a ipod cord.
They must only have at best $3.50 so there profit pays for the CEO to go on a big vacation or a have a house with a butler

Anything electrical/electronic cord related is HUGE profit for all companies, my wife used to work at Best Buy which has a employee discount policy of a % over cost, before they put a limit of 50% off on the discount you could get an HDMI cable for less then $1 because of how cheap basic electronic accessory items really are.

That is a great find, i may pick one up! Here is what i did in the meantime on my XCT.

I have a Ipod Touch laying around i haven't used in 3 years. I have a free "hotspot" app on my Galaxy S3. I paired my ipod to my phone so know matter where i am(as long as there is 3G or 4G) i get Pandora, Tunein Radio or Iheartradio through my speakers. I don't get any bar controls though except Vol. Still trying to figure that out.

One thing i did notice was downloaded music would override any app and i couldn't figure out a way to stop the music. So since i haven't used it in 3 years, i restored the ipod and deleted all the music. Now i can play my apps without any problem. Not sure if there is a way to keep music and use the apps yet. TBD

This option actually works great for me because i wear a full face helmet and have a Scala Rider bluetooth system. So i will still be able to use my phone for turn by turn navigation and phone calls into my helmet, while listening to music through the speakers.

180 miles on my new XCT and counting.........

Default 12v in saddlebag

I use an ipod for music AND charge my Droid phone while riding in the right saddle bag at the same time. There is a rubber plug in the corner of the bag and a 12v pos & ground wire are already stashed behing the bag from the factory... Just goto your local auto parts store & buy a 12v socket, plug it in & POOF! You're good to go...

BATMAN is a 2011 Cross Country with: Apes, Lloydz fuel controller, D&D pipes, high flow air filter, Victory low tinted flip windshield, Cross Roads thin seat, Heavy Metal Designz 2"-3" lowering kit from hmd520.com, skid plate from victorypolicemotorcycles.com, & H.I.D. headlight from xenonhidconversionkit.com. It's ALL black~chromeless~stealth... a.k.a.: complete MURDAH job!

As Henry Ford once famously said: "You can have any color as long as it's black."
