I for a long time was hesitent on buying the Ipod adapter for my Vaquero. Reasons being the disclaimer saying its does not charge the iphone. So i went with the audio adapter. I finally took a chance because i wanted to be able to change songs , playlist ect. To my surprise it does charge it. So im glad i purchased it... Another feature i was glad to see is when you shut the bike off and later start it to ride the music starts where you left off. Nice ...Just thought i'd share with you all in case this concerned you. Go for it. ..
