Getting to the iPod setting on Kawasaki stereos.

iPod and Aux modes are both available on the stereo system of your Kawasaki motorcycle.

When using the CoolStream CarPro, iPod mode allows you to see all of your downloaded songs and the music you are streaming from sites like Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, and Amazon music when using an iPhone.  Music display is not supported when using an Android device.

iPod mode is also necessary to access your handlebar controls for volume, track forward, and track-back.

Music streaming on your Victory motorcycle is best when the audio system is set to iPod.
iPod allows you to see your songs displayed and handlebar controls to work.

Turn OFF the Bluetooth on your phone.

Both iPod and Aux modes will allow you to stream music to your Kawaski bike.  But when using the Carpro, iPod mode is what you want to see for all the features to be active.  To do this, make sure that you turn OFF your Bluetooth on your phone before you start the pairing process.

Once Bluetooth is OFF power on your bike.  The blue light on the CarPro should be blinking.  This sequence assures that the initial connection of the CarPro to the Kawasaki stereo system has no conflict with also attempting to connect to your phone via Bluetooth.  The goal here is to allow the Kawasaki stereo to accept command and control information from the CarPro’s software.

Then pair your phone with the CarPro.

I can't seem to recall a time when there wasn't always music playing in my home. Starting with classical piano lessons from the age of 9 while my Dad blasted Johnny Cash, to my many years enjoying the local Boston music scene I have come to the conclusion that putting more music in your life is always a good thing.
