    Book says the audio system can control a apple 4 or 5, has anyone tried later versions to see if they also work?

    Do you have a Trophy?  If so, try it.  It's easy to find out.  If it doesn't my bet would be that it's Apple, after all the issues I had with them only to have them finally admit it was their problem and they didn't have a solution in the works.  OK then, Android here I came, bluetooth problems solved.  My wife still loves her Apple products until they give her problems and I remind her it's Apple.  She doesn't look pleased to be reminded since she has several of the Kool Aid product.

    Thanks for the update, I am also not a fan of Apple stuff, I call them fruit phones. They give away things in high school and people get hooked and despite doing less for a lot more they keep coming back.
    Trying to decide if I should buy a fruit thing to play music as Pandora works ok, but is repetitive, needs an internet connection and as limited functionality.

    Iím not an Apple disciple myself, but when I quickly discovered that radio reception was suspect at best on my Trophy, I purchased a discounted n.o.s. 4th generation iPod nano, and loaded it up with music. It works perfectly, and more or less stays plugged into the USB Port in the locked compartment semi-permanently. After upgrading my speakers, I tend to listen through them, as opposed to my helmet speakers, except at Interstate Highway speeds, at which the external speakers lose effectiveness.  :028:

    I also have my old, old, Ipod that stays in the glove box and loaded with music thanks to my wife's Itunes account from backwhen you could actually OWN what you bought and downloaded.  My radio reception is not as suspect as some so I normally use the satellite radio unless I want a, uh, particular tune, that encourages riding. :821:

    There are a lot more trees to interfere with reception of any sort here in the Great North Woods, than in your environs. :038:

    Sorry for resurrecting an old post, but I dont think the question was answered.

    I can control an Iphone 8 & Iphone 11 (just as a test), but I use an Iphone SE for everyday use as it fits in the left hand box and remains connected via USB.

    Used with a Iphone Music account , download all the music onto to the phone and it doesn't need a SIM card,  you can keep it up to date via WIFI.

    I purchased a second hand Iphone SE off ebay for £60, which at 64gb has more than enough space for music !
