    you can play anything on your phone through your headset, just like the radio on the bike, and you put the XM app on your phone which means you can play it on the bike or on a car
    on a train
    in a bar
    you can play it
    yes you can
    you can play it
    BI I am...

    yep ESPN app on any smart phone.. XM Sirius has an app, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Prime Music (free no advertising tunes) and if you have music you can rip it from CD to a digital file, upload with iTunes and have both streaming and on the drive musak...

    Top that off you can run your iGps app and it will give you turn by turn
    and still play yer toons,

    Just don't watch porn, yer gonna ride off the road...

    You should not need to buy any upgrades for apps or subscribe to their service for it to play.

    Do you have any songs on your phone, I found that the HD system is the problem, if you don't have at least one mp3 on the phone the radio comes up and says no media found and won't let you start Pandora, Spotify, Prime Music or any app unless it sees music on the device in the form of files.

    Does your phone work with the HD system, can you use the GPS with instructions coming through the HD head unit.

    Have you BT sync'd the phone to the radio. IF you have sometimes you need to kick the HD unit in the butt, and go to the select menu for Radio, Media etc select media then your phone should be there.

    Do you run a charging cable from the USB to the phone

    Harley’s radio/gps/Bluetooth/route planner has become a freaking subject of major discussion every time two or more of those bikes get together. (Worse than two old Brooklyn’ites discovering their both from Brooklyn) More time spent discussing problems with it, way points, and other crap when we could be riding. I loved the old days of just riding and stumbling into unique experiences. When it’s time to absolutely get somewhere, break out the map (good ol paper map that is!!!) and go.

    Ok you won’t see it on bike. Connect it let the radio start playing tunes from phone. Then start the Spotify app tell it to start playing once it’s running the music will play through the Hd head unit and you can use the Hd controls to adjust volume or skip forward tracks. You should see the art work on the screen

    Glad it works, yeah with the smaller screen no graphics, but thats
    probably better anyway, To get back to your music you'll have to stop the app on the phone and start playing tunes from the phone with whatever app does that or reconnect..
