OPINIONS NEEDED....MP3 PLAYER GL1800

I saw this item on EBAY and wondered if anyone here has it on their bike. Curious about satisfaction or complaints. Hopefully the link will work. thanks

If it's only MP3 you are looking for:

I bought one of these and it hasn't come off the bike for two seasons now. Works great.

I not sure about that, but it does look like a good deal, but I dont have a1800. On my 1500 I installed one of these.

I installed a J & M MP3 player over the winter and absolutely love it. It only took me about 1 hour tops to install it. Having the controls at your finger tips and being able to change tunes, etc is a lot easier than using something hooked up to the Aux plug. Contained at the link below are models now available from Wing Stuff & Cycle Max. All of these fit into the rear trunk compartment.

The only other advice I can pass on is that you get the software to load the music. It makes it a lot easier to load and sort your tunes.

I have had one of these (BikeMP3) since they were introduced. Got mine back when you could send in any old MP3 player and get the BikeMP3 for $39.00!!!!!
Those that have the Nav system had a few problems (display would show "No CD....")and a reset unit was provided.
I would reccommend this unit to anyone interested.
This company also has a very nice, cheaper, with more features, CB called GL2way. Anyone thinking about a CB should look at this unit along w/the BikeMP3 player.

Hi Gang ...... one of my firts answers.
Im a Ex Brit.Soldier living in Germany , maybe i can give you a German Tip:

http://www.w-irlbacher.de/GOLDWING/goldwing.html

one of the main probs with the cheap MP3 player (even that from J&M !!) is : IT STAYS ON !!! bye bye Batterie ... ive experienced it with a Mp3 outta Hong Kong ... if the A-Sel button ist pressed you can even mess up your sound system ....

This German guy is really good he even has all the Gear when here comes to meetings & can explain really good ... & even proves hes right !!!
I bought the Mp3 Player off him ( ok costs a few $ more than the cheapo´s but hey i still got my Batterie & sound system ...... check his side out maybe you´ll get some ideas on it:

Happy Huntin from Germany
JIMI
