Looking forward to reading your review about both the installation and how well it works with the handlebar controls. Good luck!

Looks like a nice setup. Google maps is a huge bonus, two built in USB outputs and few other bells and whistles makes this look like a winner. A new stock replacement is about $800 bucks so I hope this works seamlessly with your hand controls. Problem with me, I get retarded when it comes to stuff like this, I would buy a amp, and new speakers too which would kill a nicely priced unit.
Please let us know how it works out.

Cool. I am guessing that Volunteer Audio has done something to make these compatible with the HD hand controls. Says nothing about it on their website and in fact comes up under car audio, doesn't seem weather proof. Have you verified any of that? Even better for $419 you can get a unit w/o sirius or dvd. No desire to watch movies as I am riding my bike down the road... hopefully no one else has that desire!

I thought you sold your street glide. Are you building a new one?
