Selecting MP3 player

Postby Mercy » Tue Sep 20, 2016 1:00 pm



I'm back again....same subject (tunes) but different problem. After all the advice and help from the forum I was able to use the J&M MP3 player....for about 2 months! After learning how to upload music into the different folders....learning that the SD card plug-in was faulty, thus having to purchase USB flash... Our J&M finally took a dive, for good. I'm searching for a different unit and considering the BikeMP3 but it is out of stock everywhere. Vacation is coming up in a month and tunes would really be nice.
Any suggestions on a different unit or where I might find the BikeMP3 ?
Thanks !!

I'm not familiar with the player you had, but I have this one for the last two months and it works
great on my Goldwing. I have over one thousand songs on it and use it every time I ride.
Inexpensive too. You just need to buy the micro SD card extra if you need that much storage.
I'm not even close to needing it yet.

I use a cassette adapter to plug it into my stereo on my GL-1500.

It's cheap enough that if or when it breaks, I won't feel so bad.
I might even buy a second one to have for when this one
goes t*ts up.

Smart Phones it works quite well as a music player.
Only drawback is it needs charging around lunch time
but a USB outlet eliminates that problem.

We've updated our phones to larger ones so now we have spare Smart Phone's.
They're now almost dedicated 'EZ 2 READ' music players... small too. ;)
You'd be hard pressed to fill a 32GB card with tunes.
Another fine point about a Smart Phone, change the APP anytime. 8-)

I use my phone as both an mp3 player and the GPS.
I have a USB charger installed to keep it up while riding.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

I'm processing all the info and it's all appreciated. Now don't pee yourselves laughing but we've never owned a cell phone, smart phone, tablet, ipad....Nothing mobile....I've used my daughter's a time or two but really quite illiterate when it comes to the mobiles. I did recently purchase a trakphone simply because I was concerned that if we had an accident riding and needed to call for help. We have the installation done for the J&M and was just gonna replace the player, be it BikeMP3 or some other brand.

Nothing funny about no smart phones. Shows your quite happy in the Mayberry days. That's a place we're looking for to retire to/in, calm, peaceful and contented folks.

From Ebay I picked up a LG Lucid 2 for $13.00 free shipping. IT TOTALLY WORKS! The 911 works even without paid service and to me it's basically a micro iPad, although I need to double up on my reading glasses to read the screen. :lol:
The APPS are free and you can pick just about anything your heart desires... even a free VOIP service. YUP, make free phone calls when connected to WiFi. many stores have free WiFi and we hit them religiously for the free Internet connection.

HOPE THAT HELPS ;)

I agree on the smart phone application. I use a ram mount to hold the phone where I can easially see it. There is wires for the aux input and power run up the handlebar to the phone. I can't carry on a phone conversation this way but I can listen to tunes and have navigation.

Good luck on your set up

I love listening to music also I if you
just want to listen to downloaded music look at the iPod classic I found one on Craig's list for 80 bucks its 120
gig holds thousands of songs and is simple to use I bought in helmet speakers that worked great if I didn't have a bike with a stereo that's what I would do your iPod doesn't have to be the latest model mind is 5 years old. There is another option it's also an iPod
(touch) 32 gig still lots of music space but this is capable of connecting to the
Internet that what I'm typing this message on I was overwhelmed by these things at first but they really are simple to use
