Well, I wish that were true... I stopped at my local dealer today, wired headset in hand. They had a '19 Ultra on the floor with the 7-pin DIN factory installed. We tried for over half an hour to get CarPlay to enable without luck. The wired headset was recognized, and would even make calls out via my iPhone, but no CarPlay displayed.Ryan Urlacher has a review of the GTS system on YouTube, and says that the 7-pin wired headset should work fine with CarPlay, but it didn't for the time we were trying to get it enabled. So it may indeed require the WHiM and a Wireless headset to work. The jury is still out here. I plan to go back and try my Sena 30K to see if it pairs and enables CarPlay in the next few days.Adding a bit of additional info - the version of CarPlay H-D uses requires a wired connection to your iPhone via the USB plug. That's pretty stupid since the 6.5GT & GTS already access many of the iPhone functions via a Bluetooth connection. WTF was Harley thinking? Two years ago CarPlay used wired connections - now most cars are coming out with WIRELESS CarPlay. That's H-D,... a day late and a dollar short - just like their years-old 20S EVO wireless Bluetooth-only headset. The '19 model we worked with had MY19 maps.

If I have my phone plugged into the USB port as soon as I plug my HD headset (the one that came with the bike) the radio icon turns into the carplay icon then my home screen from my iPhone displays on the bike.
QuoteI haven't tried the HD headset from my '08 ultra but I'm assuming it would work. they both have 7 pins. As an experiment I plugged the coiled wire only into the bikes plug and it doesn't work, once I plug the other end into the headset it works. The newer HD headsets have a plug on both ends of the coiled wire, the older one is hard wired into the headset side.
Quote from: Hossamania on November 26, 2018, 06:24:52 PMI have no info on your particular setup, but I do know that just randomly cross-connectimg wires to see if you can make it work is not a good idea, especially, as you say, on a new bike. The function of each wire needs to be identified, and then a safe plan made to jump wires together to get the desired outcome.If there is a power wire there, and you hook it to an audio circuit, that might just be the end to all your fun. And no warranty at that point.
Quote from: FurryOne on December 28, 2018, 09:06:10 PMI have my 7-pin DIN microphone adapter built, and it works great with my 6.5GT system. I have also built a 7-pin DIN "Dummy" plug that shows a load across the MIC connection and a load across the speaker connections. I hope to try them out on a CarPlay system at the Dealer next week.

Quote from: Uberjason on January 10, 2019, 05:24:33 PMTo those mentioning the IMC headset, I have two of them from a 2016 Ultra Limited I owned and they both worked great with the boom 6.5GT, but do not enable CarPlay on the 2019 Ultra Limited I now own. The HD branded wired headset and mic (that came with the bike) work flawlessly with CarPlay.
Quote from: FurryOne on January 10, 2019, 06:58:53 PM Hold on a minute - there's a spare connection on the '17 models - Pin #7. I wonder if on the '19 models there's a connection to that pin? I'm going to have to visit my dealer and scrounge a look at the '19 manual - that may be the key!

Another posting!I've been told that on the GTS system, if you have the WHiM enabled in software via the Digital Technician, you don't need a mic or the WHiM attached for CarPlay to work. I guess it's a possibility, but I can't confirm it.Anyone?
