Has anyone ever hooked an iPod into the Aux cable on your Wing? If so how did you accomplish that task?

The ipod would have to have an earbud jack to plug in the 3.5mm front fairing pocket plug(which I ASSUME you have???)

Or are you asking about in the trunk???? You didn't really say where....

There was a cord you could buy for in the trunk, that you could listen and control the ipods.

I simply open the left fairing pocket, plug the 3.5mm plug into my iPod, turn on the iPod, maximize the volume on the iPod, close the fairing pocket and then adjust the speaker/headset volume using the bikes controls.

Ive tried an Ipod on mine the only thing I found the Ipod didnt have enough volume. I wound up putting a Boostaroo and that solved the issue. I used the Ipod cross country and it was great alternative.

At some point Apple changed how you connect an audio cable to and Ipod, Ipad, and Iphone. You plug it in to the charging port and then plug your aux cord into the cable. I have one that allows me to listen to music and also charge at the same time. I got it at Wally world, not expensive. https://www.walmart.com/ip/iPhone-Cable ... /360865679

Thanks I have a 160gig iPod classic with about 90g of music on it I’ll look and see what’s in the fairing pocket and trunk. I got my 02 1800 back in August and really haven’t looked into doing anything with the iPod as I wanted to ride as much as possible before the snow flys. Now that it tucked in for the winter I got time to play around with that and do some maintenance before the riding season starts back up.
Thanks again!
