iPhone compatability

Wondering if anyone with an iPhone 4s has tried connecting it to the factory audio system on either a Vaquero or Voyager. I have the iPod connection kit on my Vaquero which works great, but I recently got a iPhone 4s and am considering getting a mount for the handlebar and a 30 pin extension cable to connect it to the iPod pigtail. This would allow me my iTunes and GPS capability without carrying a lot of devices with me. Just wondering if anyone else has tried this?

I have the Iphone 4 with the pigtail, but have not tried mounting on the handle bars. My GPS (I had to take out a second mortgage to afford it) is mounted in the middle of my handle bars.

Sorry I am little help

I'm using my iPhone 4s on my Voyager -- great setup. Are there any instructions on which handlebar switches do what? In particular, can you change from shuffle to "play in order" from the handlebar?

Great idea! I just looked at the compartment where the iPod currently is. The question that poped into my head was how to run the cable extension out of the compartment to the handlebars? Right not I am using an FM transmitter and a separate charger cord and it raises a lot of eyebrows when people look at all the wires. This would be a lot cleaner application.

Hey Jim, I plan on doing the same thing eventually, since I got an iPad for my birthday, my plan was an iPhone until my own daughter busted me in front of the wife that the new iPhone 5 was coming out and I shouldn't get a 4. So I have to wait until Sept/Oct but anyway once I do I'll be going here to get a mount for the 5.
Have you tried these folks?

We're starting to carry "Ram Mounts" here at the store, and thay carry a lot of different cool mounts for various devices. I found one that will hold almost any type of device, and mounts nicely to any bike. I'm sold out of them right now, but should have them back in stock in in a few days.

I use the Ram mount on my mirror post for my Garmin, they work great.
