Honda Gold Wing GL1800
MP3 Software

BikeMP3 and J&M Corporation sell MP3/WMA USB flash drive players to replace the Honda 6-disk CD changer and allows one to play songs through the headsets with OEM handle bar controls.

I installed the J&M player in my 2008 GL1800 in December of that year and started using the software shortly afterwards.   I've been extremely pleased with the combination of both products.

The  Virtual CD Changer Software was specifically built for the GL1800 music players to populate and arrange MP3 and WMA songs on your USB flash drive with just few clicks of your mouse.  This software is sold exclusively by WingStuff via the Internet.

New Release!          RTTYTerminal Software         New Release!    

Announcing a new software product for the RTTY enthusiast. It supports both the MMTTY engine and the RS-232 interface so that you can monitor both received inputs in separate text windows.


 The software can transmit on either MMTTY or RS-232 or both. I can also cross-strap the data feed between MMTTY and the RS-232 ports in either direction making the software act like a repeater.

This software uses MMTTY to control the sound card and my own software to access the RS-232 port for the control of a Terminal Unit (TU) similar to the,HAL ST-8000A or ST-6 (modified with RS232). The software supports multiple versions of the BAUDOT code and is capable of interfacing MMTTY to the RS232 port.

The first three dropdown menu items File, View and Option control the MMTTY engine and are very similar to MMTTY. For questions on how this works, contact MMTTY documentation.

Under DataFlowControls you have the ability to control the sources and destinations of the data. You are allowed to check multiple features at the same time, but for practical purposes, you may only one transmit or receive feature turned on at any one given time.

1. Enable MMTTY TX and TX On/Off allows the MMTTY engine to send transmitted data to the sound card.

2. Enable RS232 TX and TX On/Off allows you to transmit text to the RS232 output.

3. Echo RS232 Received to MMTTY Transmit acts like a repeater sending anything received via the RS232 port to the sound card.

4. Echo MMTTY Received to RS232 Transmit acts like a repeater sending anything received via the sound card to the RS232 port. Use this method if you are using MMTTY to receive data and want to drive your mechanical teletype machine.
