Got my new BIKE!!!!

Well everyone, picked up my new 2016 Gold Wing Comfort Navi/XM. Picked it up with 6 miles on it and it's perfect. Great ride home and took my boys (13 and 10) for a small ride around the block. Can't wait to get some more miles on it.

My only "issue" is that I'm unable to skip songs on my iPhone. I've hooked up the phone to the USB dongle in the back and I'm able to select playlists, select albums, select artists, change shuffle and all of that. But I'm unable to skip a freaking song. I'm assuming I'm doing something. I have a new iPhone 11, wouldn't think that should make too much of a difference. Should I see if there is a firmware update for the Gold Wing's player (not my phone)?

I'm not sure what to change here, or what I can do different. I pay a monthly cost for music, so I don't have to buy every song I want to play, so downloading MP3z onto a USB drive isn't something I'm going to want to do. This is a very "1st" world problem I have, but would be nice to be able to skip songs using the plethora of controls that Honda has given me.

Absolutely love the bike so far. Excited to put some miles on it. Any help with the iPhone issue would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks All!

Glad to hear you like the bike. Sorry, I can't help with the phone question.

Congratulations on your new motorcycle. I have a 2015 and I use an iPod. To skip songs I use the "channel selection" switch (right above the mute button). Have you tried that?
