Radio upgrade

Does anyone know of an updated radio with flash drive port that will plug into the 1999 k1200lt radio spot. If not is there a plug adaptor that would allow it.

Re: Radio upgrade

Nothing that easy to do but there are several posts here for after market marine radios that are detailed well and one of our members "chrischenusa" does do a BT mod to the existing radio but I think yours is too old for that since it has the cassette unit. Any way as you read this post scroll down to "related posts' for more info.

Re: Radio upgrade

you can buy a "universal cassette adapter" that is inserted in the cassette player and has a cord out that plugs into a MP3 player or Ipod. Last one I bought was at WalMart.

Re: Radio upgrade

I used the cassette adapter in my LT to run my xm radio with no problems.
