I bought the Aux Connector, did not buy the Ipod connector, as I do not have an Ipod, bought a 1/8" stereo extension which is connected to the Aux Connector and routed outside of the Ipod compartment to the handle bar. I place the phone on a base I got from Ebay. I plug the car charger in the 12V outlet on the right side. This way through the AUX of the radio I can hear Pandora through the bike speakers, I did this setup since I use the phone as GPS too, so I have it right between the Riser clamps and I can see it clearly during the rides. I do not use this setup if it is going to rain. Next mod will be a 12V outlet within the Ipod compartment that way I can hook up the Phone inside the Compartment for those trips that may have rain, but I still want to hear Pandora over what ever the radio stations are broadcasting.
