Re: MP3 player to replace cd changer

I've also got the J&M CD replacement and have not had any issues. You can insert a thumb drive or connect a BT device.

Re: i need help please

Make sure you cover the surrounding area and tape it off so any filings will not get into the engine. If there is any of the bolt sticking out you can take a dermal tool with a cut off wheel and cut a slot in the end then use a screw driver to back it out. Be super careful not to cut the head when c...

Re: Feed back through speaker when using Freewire

Thanks PastoT, I will have to look for the side tone setting. I've been using the CB with both the CB and Music going to the headset and that pretty much cures the problem except on long rides I get tired of listening to music through the head set. But I can hear my voice faintly when transmitting o...

Re: cb radio alternative

I'm looking for an antenna to connect to the mobile base of the 75-822 in order to extend my range. I was wondering what others were using and how they are connect to the bike. You can connect the Midland to your CB antenna if you have one. You will need 2 adapters one of these https://www.sierra-m...

Re: Radio static when brakes are applied only on FM stero

I think I would check around the antenna for a bare brake light wire or wire that is running on top of the antenna wire. Also check your sockets for corrosion of loose fitting bulb.

Re: Bluetooth communication - keep it simple

This does not need to have any functionality other than to send the output from the bike to the speakers i...

If it does you can buy wind socks made from plastic and has a hole in one side that will look better then the glove finger. If the mic doesn't fix the...

Anybody complain about hearing you when you talk on the CB? Have you checked to make sure your mic isn't 180* out? I know I've gotten in a hurry and not checked my mic only to have others tell me they can just barely hear me. When I check sure enough my mic is 180 out. Another thing that might help ...

I'm not quite sure I understand what you are wanting to do. If you just want to hook your phone up to listen to music (like an mp3 player) Then the J&M Digial music play may be what you want. It plugs into the CD wiring on the bike and you can BT you phone to the unit, Plug in a thumb drive or plug ...
