I've been riding Goldwings since 1986 and it's really neat to see the new stuff come out as bikes get newer. I now have a 2006, just love it, even over my 2000SE. It has no CD player but I learned about the JMDM-GL18E from J & M. The sales guy told me about this and how easy to install and set up. Man he was wrong. Yes the install was easy, but the set up, forget it. I've tried calling the factory support, forget it, every time I called no one was around to help, leave a message. Did that, never get a call back.
The instructions that came with the unit does not do a very good job explaining how to load the music to someone like me that don't understand what the hell a Root File is. I've purchased several USB flash drives to set my music up to and installed like it states but nothing. I was hoping this was a simple plug and play so I could me real positive about it but I can't. To me it's junk that I pissed $140.00 away on.
The J and M digital player shown is an improved unit over the old. Had one on a 2003 ABS bike that accepted a thumb drive or a SD card. It used to lock up when I switched from CD to the Radio and have to disconnect the battery. This one I installed on a 2005 GL 1800. No problems and crystal clear. This unit only accepts the thumb drive. It does not lock up like the old one.
However, keep in mind the complexity of a thumb drive is slower to react than an SD card. So always give the unit time to react when you punch the CD control buttons when switching tracks, channels, or over to radio and back. The low price makes it worth it compared to a Honda CD Player. My 2005 is a 1st generation bike so it only holds about 99 songs on each of the 5 channels. Plenty for me to listen to (500 songs).
Removed the cd player and installed this on my 03. Works great. I also bought the populating software to go with it, which made it very easy to load my thumb drive. The listing states that it will play 6 cd's with 45 songs on each one. I have mine playing 10 cd's with 99 songs on each one. The only issue I have had with mine was after I pressed the random button it did lock up. But that wasn't that terrible. Pulled the left side cover and then pulled the two fuses feeding the radio to reset it. Not a big deal. Now I know not to push that button. Sound quality is great, just as good or even better than the cd player itself. I also have linked my gps to it, which will pause the music and give directions. When the gps is done and silent the music will take back off where it left off.
Bought one and used the bluetooth just fine, then tried the usb and keeps locking up. Have to take seat off and unplug it, diconnect battery, then works for about 1hour then locks up again. Bad design, the plug should extend from under the seat to the player so when it does this you don't have to take the seat off. Will use the bluetooth only. Very disappointed and do not recommend.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
