Connecting satellite thru aux

When I run my audio through the aux input on my comm system, will I hear sound from the speakers or only headphones? I would like to hear out of the speakers. Bike is an '09.

Thanks,
Ken

Both unless you turn off the speakers

The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive.

FWIW, I've been running my Sirius using the FM Modulator for 3 years. Works fine even in the NYC area. Occasionally, I will get interference so I have 5-6 preprogrammed stations already set up.

My advice- save the Aux setting for your Ipod.

Thanks for the replies
I would rather run through the aux. In my experience the sound quality is better.

I run my Zumo 550 through the Aux input. Sounds great with or without the helmet on. When you do put your helmet on though, don't do like I did and forget to turn off the external speakers and piss off people at stop lights.
