Is it me or do the new members here seem to be coming off a bit brash? Maybe I'm just getting too damn old.
To anyone considering an iPod module:
The Harley-Davidson iPod module WILL play any music file that plays on your iPod.
The Harley-Davidson iPod module, as well as the Harman-Kardon Advanced Audio System, require occasional software updates. This is done by downloading a small file from the H-D website, burning it to a CD, then running the CD through the HK CD player. I've done it and it's not too complicated. If your unzip software doesn't handle it I recommend using any one of the plethora of free unzippers on the market. H-D's website is pretty explanatory in this respect.
As mentioned, iPods with spinning hard drives do not fare well in moving vehicles. Use one with a flash drive instead.
Once you have an iPod module and are able to manage the iPod through the factory controls you will ask yourself why you waited so long to get it.
I have an HDPD+ from On The Move Technologies. Does the same thing as the Harley unit for about half the price. I was one of the first guys to install it on a '12 EGUC and had alot of problems initially. Mark, Ian, and rest of the gang at OTMT worked with me diligently and I'm glad I waited it out.
