Either an MP3 player built into the radio, or the facility for the Honda CD player to play MP3 music from CD's. Hondaline dropped the ball with this, the overpriced CD player should really be able to play MP3 as well as MP3 was already well established when the gl1800 arrived.

How about Honda making a plug and play adapter to allow us to plug our Ipods into the 1500 radios? (other than cassette and wireless adapters?)

I think the GL1800 has this already Wingdreamer, it has an auxiliary input through an adapter.

I had a guy show me a plug already installed on the 1500 that sits under the left side fairing pouche. He found it by accident and has used it on his mp3 player ever since. It amy worth a look.

YES, I AM FAMILIAR WITH THE PLUG IN, IN THE POCKET. UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE INTERSTATE MODELS (BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE A CASSETTE DECK IN THE RADIO). OBVIOUSLY, MOTHER HONDA LISTENED TO THE 1500 OWNERS, AS THEY INSTALLED THE AUX CABLE ON THE 1800 MODELS..........THANKS FOR THE WELCOME!!!! ALAN :waving:

If this is the same sort of gadget that I tried in my car a while back, they work great until you get near a big city. I lived near DC and I would be constantly tuning the thing. I just broke down and installed a new stereo.

WHen I used the gadget in the car I just lowered the power antenna, like I said not tried it (ridden) on the wing yet. A friend of mine has a panasonic 5 cd player with a modulator and he never mentiond any problems like that, but we do live far from Large cities and most of our riding is also in the country. Cities not being on the list of favourable riding places and definitely not while listening to a radio on a bike :)
