First I started off with the 6ft cable (3.5mm plugs Belkin from CC) and spliced it to one foot, very difficult because of the three small wires in the cable but it worked, remember you need three wires for stereo that's why you have two colored rings on the male plugs.reg26 said:Where do you buy the wire to plug into the stereo from the I pod and whats it called ?
I preset the wheel to at least 80% volume and use the volume control on the handle bar.marthared said:Not hijacking the thread, just another quick question to IPod users... How do you adjust the volume when you're riding? I've found that gloves just don't work well on the wheel, and I haven't seen any in-line volume control like my hubby has for his Sony CD player.???????????????
Well that just gave me an idea. I'm going to cut out a pocket in some closed cell foam that will fit tight in the windscreen bag.

I wrapped the IPOD in bubble wrap and stuck it in the left hand fairing pocket and routed the cable up to the stereo. I adjusted the volume to 75-80% and set it on shuffle. Seemed to work pretty well with only 1 or 2 lockups in 5000 miles. I usually charged it at night, but a couple of times I ran the powewr adapter from the lighter socket.
I am going to trim up some foam padding so I can slip the IPOD in and out of the pocket easily. I would also like to run a power wire into the pocket so I don't have to many telltale wires showing.
