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.
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.
You must have one song saved to the music library.
For the CarPro to complete its connection for music streaming, you must have at least one song that you own saved to your phone’s music library. Without this song, you can pair to the CarPro, but you won’t be able to hear the music. The software in the CarPro uses this song from your phone to connect to your stereo speakers.
Please read this for more information and tips on buying and saving one song to an iPhone or Android phone.
