Re: Radio repairable?
If someone would just come up with the plug to wire the hand controls I would feel better.
You know like Crutch Field, you order a Sony for a Dodge the send you the plug, and you wire it to the head units leads.
There was a guy who made for HD that you got the plug and all hand controls worked. I contacted him and he does not do BMW.
When mine goes I will go get a XM/USB/IPod mid priced Sony 250-300 and install it and call it a day. I use Ipod or XM anyway so I can make do. They all come with a remote these days if you really need one.
The 150 Sony in the Road Glide is still going no issues since 05. I rode it in a LOT of rain, as the new owner has and not a lick of problems.
As with other OEM items it is easy to go cheap on the radio quality.
