Very improved over the old

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).

Better than advertised.

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.

design

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.

Great Product

Got this since I didnt have a CD player and didnt want to spend $700 for one. Pretty simple to install. Plugs right in. Instructions were good. Works awesome. Wish I had bought this sooner. Pairs with my phone so I can listen to my cds or sirius app.

Love this product!!!

Purchased the Digital Music player for my 2008 ABS, NAVI GL1800. Used it to replace my aged "Soundgate iPod, iPhone Plug-N-Play Interface for GL1800". For the replacement, it took longer to pull the 2 wires from the Soundgate than it did to install the one new wire. My fears were that the bluetooth would not allow me to use the handlebar controls, but it worked flawlessly. I can now put my iPhone in my pocket while riding and not having to unplug it for short trips. The sound is great and I wish I had purchased it before.
