Mike, do you know if the new radios have to be programmed/mated to a bike before they'll work in a retrofit?  Or will they work new right out of the box. 

Back a hundred years ago when we first started trying to swap HK radios in to the 05 and older bikes everyone said they'd not work.  Used ones would though (with tinkering for the AVC).  New ones would too; if you mated them to any bike first.  Just curious if it's known if the new radios are similar or if they will work right out of the box.

I called them today, the young lady I spoke to was very helpful. She said a new radio would have to be zoned at purchase, and explained to me and it lets the radio to know where it is in the country. She also said if it’s flashed for a whim module that will allow Apple CarPlay to work but you don’t need the actual module

I have my new GTS radio and the SC-GTSi interface. I'm waiting for the new XM radio that will be here tomorrow and will install it on Tuesday. Have an appointment with the local dealer to have the radio initialized on Wed. Keeping my fingers crossed and will post results here. I will have pix to share also. Here are the instructions. I hope the unit is better than the instructions are. Not very impressed with them.

Feb 26, I have the new radio, XM module and SC-GTSi installed. It took me about 2 hours and I am particular to torque screws to spec. It went pretty well except that they expect you to install the adapter where the CB radio goes. That won't work. However, it will install on the other side between the radio and the media pocket. The cable takes up a lot of room and should probably be shorter. I did manage to get it all stuffed in behind the fairing. I also have a WHIM installed that takes up space where the CB is located. So if you are the proud owner of a CVO Limited you will have to face that challenge. I have pictures but I'm not sure how I can share them because they are quite large and there are about a dozen or so. Not sure that the pictures will be of any help either. It powers up and I was able to pair my phone and my wife's phone with no trouble. I go to the dealer tomorrow (2-27) to have the unit flashed to make it all play. I will post again when that is complete. Keeping fingers crossed.

Update:

2/27 - Had radio flashed by my dealer and everything seems to work except CB. It is grayed out in the menu. There is a bug with the system such that the radio displays the message "! This radio is not compatible with this vehicle. Please contact your Harley-Davidson dealership". Message goes away by turning off the radio for a minute and turning it back on. Soundz is aware and working on a fix. So far, I'm delighted. This new radio is incredibly better than that old piece of crap that I have dealt with for five and a half years.

If you need pictures, I will try to figure out a way of presenting them but I really don't think they would be of much help.

Carry on.

What did you have to do to get the radio from Harley? Our dealer is saying they can’t get one without a 2019 vin# and they program it first for the bike.

That is BS. no VIN required. Dealer does have to initialize it. They have to do that with every new bike they get. This is no different.

Your dealer doesn't want to sell parts very bad.  Or the parts counter is too lazy to actually look it up and, instead, they're just saying something that makes it easy for them.  You can find it (and order) at the Harley website if your dealer really doesn't want to take your money.  Part number 76000834 for almost $1900 (gulp).

You boys are brave. Spending over $2K to have a faster boot up for navigation and no rubber buttons and (finally, 10 years late) Bluetooth compatibility directly with the unit without having to spend an additional $500 to HD for a module.

 I trust Pete's set up far more than HD's ability to allow you to swap out head units. Sounds like an electrical nightmare to me. I guess this form and new topics on issues with swapped units will tell the truth.

Good luck and send me any other money you feel like parting with. Lol

Expensive, no doubt but the new GTS unit is like chalk and cheese when compared to the old Boom.

Being faster is only one of the benefits.
It's just way better all round, everything has been improved, most importantly in my opinion the Sat Nav which is excellent.

I'm not certain there are any better aftermarket units out there at the moment.

Just my opinion though!!

You still have to use the WHIM with the GTS.
