Has anyone installed the iPod cable on their cross country? Where are people mounting their iPod's? Saddlebag? Handlebars?

So how does the audio extension cord run from the iPod cord in the fairing to the iPod in the right saddlebag?

I had them install it when I bought my XC. Glad I did. Works great. It's definitely a nice feature to be able to have it charge while riding and being able to scroll through songs or playlists, from the controls on the handlebar. I definitely think it is priced "a little high", in the long run a worthwhile investment.

better sound

wether you put an ipod or do what i did and tossed my sat radio in the saddlebag, the audio is fantastic. i installed a 3 way 12v power port in the right side bag and ran my aux cable and sat antenae thru the rubber grommet up under the side of the tank and into the aux plug-in(behind headlight) and the sat antenae is velcro's to brake resevoir. awesome reception. if you use the fm modulator from the siriius the audio is at about half and doesnt sound near as good. i used to have to have the fm dialed in and radio at full blast. now it rocks at half way!

If I'm understanding correctly, the iPod interface charges as well as plays through the sound system? I'm considering trading in the Goldwing for a Cross Country and I'm concerned that the CB, iPod interface, XM, intercom won't work as nicely together as I'm used to. So many details.

I installed mine a couple of weeks ago and it's worth every penny. You control it through the standard radio interface, plays through the speakers, of course, and charges my iPhone, too. I don't have the CB or intercom so I can't tell you about that.

I also have a Goldwing and the Icom sucks. There are no adjustments to the intercom. You can not turn up/down the intercom and there is no vox control. My Ultra intercom is much better than the GW.
From what I have read/researched. You need the CB to incorporate the intercom. The Factory wired headsets have volume controls on the plug for the headsets. I do not remember for sure but I also think it has a vox control which is whats wrong with the GW intercom.

I will be using my XC for the short trips -under 500 miles or just over night. My GW/Ultra are my touring bikes. My GW is my IBA bike.

Ipod Cable

Does anyone have the instructions for the Ipod install in the saddlebag for the cross country?

I purchased the cables but they came with the instructions for the vision (same part #). Any help would be appreciated.

Mine did to.
The extension cable will have the instructions you will need. The IPod connection is pretty straight forward.
Just make sure you fix the extension cable as where it will not get close to the belt pulley. The IPod connects to the extension cable outside of the saddle bag. The rubber seal plugs the hole.

cable directions

Flip a few pages into the directions...the XC ones are in the back. they are very good. (the pictures suck though) play with the routing a litte under the seat. you'll want to ensure your cable is well insulated if it crosses anything sharp. On first use...ensure your ipod is in shuffle mode AFTER you start her up. As for model...I understand the first generation ones dont handle vibrations so well. go with 2nd and newer generation. I picked up a 3rd gen NANo real cheap through AMAZON.

On another note...whebn you buttton up the tank...ENSURE you get thatr pesky fuel line snapped in ALL the way. I posted on my "ahem", experience with that, awhile back.

Hands down, it was a great upgrade. First I just went with the short ipod cable, and velcro'd my ipod to the dash. After a couple trips of worrying about it being forgotten at stops, I sprang for the audio extension cable and mounted in the saddle bag.

Happy ridin'...Mike

Thank you, I did not get past the first page. It worked well; easy install. Bike is less than a week old; completed two upgrade so far, flip windshield and Ipod connector. I believe a back rest will be next.

JC,

The driver back rest enhances the comfort of the XC, IMHO. I've had the back rest since day one and I always ride with it. Just over one month in the saddle with 1400 miles on the ticker, this machine is a blast to ride.

As another member said, this is a by product of the Victory XC: :D

Roger. The backrest is an easy decision; the challenge will be the exhaust upgrade. When I put the stage kit on my kingpin, the bike was suddenly awoken and felt really good. However it was a bit loud. I am looking for similar power (low end torque) without the the noise.
Most treads here discussed the noise level but provided very few details on the performance.thumb up

Agreed. I'm looking to go with an exhaust upgrade, but I haven't decided on which set up is best for the XC.

There was a thread not too long ago that had some graphs that measured HP/Tq levels w/stock pipes vs. D&D vs. RPW. I would really like to hear the D&D and RPW in person before I choose. thumb up

The weather today is wicked nice! Happy 4th of July all. cheers

Cocur. Besides the price ($ 800.00 installed from the local stealer) what are the drawbacks on the Stage 1?

I would go with the Atom bomb if i could hear them in person. The price is very attractive but I do not want excessive noise.

Just installed my iPod cables tonight and wow! It was easy to do and with the help of a friend I did it with out completely taking gas tank off. This is a great addition to anybike and to be able to control iPod through the audio controls is frickin badass. Lovin this bike more and more each time I climb aboard it.
