BOOM GTS upgrade swap for older BOOM GT radio
« on: January 17, 2020, 12:08:35 AM »

I bought the new BOOM GTS radio from Surdyke back when it was on sale for $1520. The install instructions were straightforward. Pretty easy swap out. I swapped the XM module (76000233) over to the new GTS unit.

After the install, I took the bike to the dealer for flashing. The new BOOM GTS unit runs great. XM subscription runs perfect. I swapped all the GPX files over and all my phone contacts so the GPS and audio is like ir was always there.

Very pleased with this upgrade. Its nice having Carplay now for audio and GPS directions.

Did you reuse the Sirrus antenna or did you need a new one?

You can reuse the Sirius antenna as its magnetically held in position on its mounting platform.

How do you access Apple Car Play?

From what I have read the GTS comes flashed as needing a Mic, whether via wired or wireless headset which requires a WHIM....still not clear on this.  I’m not sold on the WHIM yet.

or

if you have radio flashed to have the Mic “disabled” in the Apple Car Play configuration.

I’m getting ready do this upgrade also. Was glad to hear that I don’t need to buy a new SiriusXM Satellite Module.

Any words of wisdom you can share will be greatly appreciated!

thanks
Jim

WHIM module is only needed if you intend to use a wireless headset. It is NOT needed with a wired headset. Carplay will immediately be accessible when 3 conditions are met:

1) An iphone is connected to the BOOM USB port
2) a wired headset is plugged into BOOM GTS or a wireless headset is paired through a WHIM module
3) the iphone has a cell tower connection

Carplay will also be available if the BOOM microphone has been disabled by a dealer through Digitech. Id the microphone is disabled, you will not be able to make or receive phone calls, use a CB, use Siri or use the BOOM intercom system. It has been reported that the option to disable the microphone in order to enable CsrPlay use WITHOUT a headset attached, was eliminated in Nov 2019.

Thanks for the information.

Did you install the WHIM and if so any issues with the installation and or use?

Also, I think I recall from another thread that you were able to use the XM module from the old GT unit. Is that correct?

Thanks

Yes, the XM module from my GT radio worked great. I do not have a WHIM unit and no plans to add it as I prefer the hardwire headset setup.

My understanding is that Apple forced HD to drop the ability to access Carplay if the microphone was disabled. This change occurred when HD allowed the GTS upgrade on the 2017/2018 bikes.
