Wouldn't any ipod model be recommended for this bike?
Am looking at buying my first apple device (ipod), sorry, not a big fan, for the first time simply because Apple is referenced in the Owners Sat/Nav/Audio manual.

I think pretty much all motorcycle manufacturers actively do not recommend any harddrive based iPods, due to potential vibration damage.  I know Harley specifically advises not using them.  That said, I occasionally used an old hard drive ipod on my Harley (the only ipod I had that worked with the old school 30 pin ipod dock on the bike) and had zero issues.

Canes, I just use a USB memory stick.  They can hold a lot of music.

I have a mini ipod 16gb unit. It works perfectly fine on the bike. In audio settings you can tweak it to find playlists or music by artist. It works fine for me and have used it for the past 5 years with no problems or skipping tracks when hitting bumps.

Yeah, will try other media sources, have an old Microsoft Zune HD somewhere but, don't understand why companies, like Triumph cater to Apple (see 'ipod" category in Audio/Nav manual).

Guess part of my complaint comes from not being an Apple Fanboi!  :192:

I'm far from an apple fan myself.  I thinl the catering is due to apples market saturation and only having to support one OEM, versus all the different manufacturers and customized versions of Android.

I normally run tunes to the bike from my phone (either streaming or locally stored) but have a USB stick in the fairing cubby just in case.  TBH navigating the stick with more than a few albums on it sucks.  As far as I can tell, you can only cycle through folders going one direction (alphabetical a-z) and it will dive down the folder tree as it goes.  Songs forward/back but also alphabetical within folder.  Don't know if it's doing this by mp3 tags or file name.  Display shows artist and song.  No shuffling.

All my music is folderized by artist then album.  I'm gonna wear out the preset button on the switch pod when I want to get to Rush...

I haven't tried it yet but I think the best way to use the stick is have like maybe 3 or 4 folders that are effectively "playlists" and then put individual songs directly in those folders.  Lots of time needed to do this if you have more than a small collection.
