Listen to IPhone through speakers

Post by siouxflyer »



Hello all!

I have a 2013 Wing. Is there a USB Bluetooth type product I can plug into the connector in the trunk that would allow me to listen to my iPhone through the bike’s speakers?

Thanks

You could just plug your phone in to the USB connector in the trunk. You can use the radio controls to operate the phone. Others on here have talked about Bluetooth adapters, but I use the above method.

HE'S EXACTLY RIGHT. IT ALSO KEEPS YOUR PHONE CHARGED.
:lol: I know people say we spend too much money on our rides, but I can't hear them when I'm 1000 miles away! :roll:

That cheap bluetooth adapter that was listed above: Which wire should I tap into so I can get it to be switched. Also, would an inline fuse be a good idea?

There is a switched power connector in the same bundle where the aux port connecter is...(RED connector is Switched POWER, WHITE connector is AUX connection)

one little problem with that cheap receiver... the left and right is right and left... the sound is good but if you test the stereo you wil notice that left and right is switched (i read it and tested it, but just left it so).
i use this https://www.banggood.com/Car-bluetooth- ... rehouse=CN to switch mine music
