If you’ve purchased a newer car anytime in the past few years, chances are it came with Android Auto built into its infotainment system. But motorcycles, on the other hand, have relied on custom-made infotainment systems instead. Now Harley Davidson is changing that, starting with Touring motorcycle equipped with the Boom! Box GTS infotainment system.

According to Harley Davidson, riders will be able to install Android Auto on their motorcycles or go to a dealership for help. Once installed, riders will need to connect a compatible Android phone to the bike over USB.

Then you’ll be able to enjoy Google Maps directions, access Assistant, and control music playback.
The company says all Harley Davidson Touring models from 2014 and later are compatible. It also plans to install Android Auto on 2021 Touring, CVO, and Trike models. If you don’t have the Boom! Box GTS infotainment system, Harley Davidson plans to sell an accessory that will bridge the gap.

The company says it will offer the software as a free update in early summer this year. If you’re an iPhone user, Harley Davidson has you covered. The company has provided CarPlay since mid-2018.
