Found a 11 XC but want to make sure im understanding some stuff first. I use my android for music/gps, its my understanding there's no aux input on the stereo. Am I needing to buy a cable to run from the saddle bag all the way to my phone to hear my tunes/gps?

If you want just a 3.5mm jack you need the aux cable (part no. #2877196 - $45ish).

As you can see, it's rather short, so you might get stiffed for another $50ish for the exension cable (part no. #2877197), which you could run to a saddle bag.

Welcome to the world of accessories. :p

I have the Sena Bluetooth on my helmet to listen to my Andriod for music and GPS. The sound quality is MUCH better than the times I've ridden a bike with speakers. It has the added advantage of not being heard by those around you if you make a phone call. The only down side is talk time (12 hours with the SENA SMH10) and you have to wear a helmet (which I do anyway).

I have been really happy with Sena.
SMH10 runs $135.95
SMH5 runs $96.75
SMH5 w/FM runs $119.25

Yep! I have my Note 3 synced with my Sena and all is good. Phone calls, GPS, MP3's and intercomm and no cable! :D

I have a 2012 XCT that came with the iPod dongle in the fairing lower. I use a Bluetooth dock I found on Amazon for around $30. Works great. Using an iPhone but that shouldn't neater Bluetooth is Bluetooth.

Congrats, ride safe, and don't forget the break-in period! Take side streets for the first 500 miles, don't just cruise home on the highway.

oh its an 11, already broke in. It's the EG I'm more worried about. 2 long trips Stator went out, then throttle cable snapped on the side of the freeway. Rode the 8ball from EP to N.Carolina and back not one problem as well as numerous trips from EP to Austin & Dallas....just a few oil changes and tires.
