USB Audio?

Does anyone know of an easy way to adapt an older sound system ('06) to accept a USB flashdrive with MP3's? I do not have the CD changer option.

The only way is through an MP3 adapter device that plugs in where the CD player would. There are a few, J&M and bike mp3 and probably others.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I have the Bike MP3 and have had zero problems with it. Thing is, I don't think they are in business anymore. It was an easy install (plugs in to the CD socket under the seat, unit mounts in the trunk - I put it on the underside of the lid). This is available on ebay (I have no experience with it): https://www.ebay.com/itm/Yatour-Digi...edirect=mobile

I ordered the Tenchang unit from Amazon--i have been told it is similar or identical to the BikeMP3 unit, but from China. I will let you folks know how it works when I get it.





Thanks All!

thanks! The Tencheng unit I bought from Amazon is supposed to work with all the handlebar controls and plugs right into the CD plug. I will report back when it arrives.
