The new Boom!™ Box GTS infotainment system is an evolved interface experience for riders of select Touring and Trike model motorcycles. Every element has been optimized to enhance the rider’s interaction with the motorcycle and connectivity with the world to ultimately improve the Touring experience.
The 6.5-inch GTS touchscreen is the same size as the 6.5GT Touch-screen but all mechanical buttons and the plastic bezel are eliminated and replaced with glass from edge to edge and the sleek, modern appearance of the latest tablet devices and premium automotive and marine displays.
The new Touch-Screen Display uses Corning Gorilla Glass, used on billions of mobile devices worldwide, a durable and scratch resistant cover glass. It includes an advanced surface treatment designed to minimize reflection and give you exceptional visibility in bright sunlight.
Compared to 6.5GT the new TFT display has 100 percent more resolution (from 400 x 240 to 800 x 480) with a four-times higher contrast ratio – it looks crisp and modern and is easy to view in bright sunlight.
Like a smart phone, the navigation engine display responds to two-finger gestures: swipe, pinch, and drag.
The Boom! Box GTS replaces the Boom! Box 6.5GT system on 2019 Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited, Ultra Limited Low, Road Glide Ultra, Road Glide Special, Street Glide Special, CVO™ Limited, CVO™ Street Glide, CVO™ Road Glide and Tri Glide Ultra models.
The new Boom! Box GTS processes faster, has more memory and is more responsive than the previous Boom! infotainment systems. Start-up time is reduced from 21 seconds to 10 seconds, and the time to FM Audio is less than 6 seconds, while route calculation time is reduced from 10 seconds to 2.5 seconds.
The home screen display is reduced to three key system buttons: Navigation, Phone, and Music. A new Back button has been added to the right-hand control. Other screens (Nav, Phone, Music) feature condensed information that’s easier to read and navigate. And the new Quick Jump feature allows easy access to NAV, Audio and Vehicle information. The entire GTS system can be managed with the motorcycle hand controls.
The Boom! Box GTS also has a new navigation engine with a voice recognition enabled “one box search” function (like a search engine). The navigation engine allows customers to choose alternative routes based on fastest, shortest, twisty and scenic NAV features.
Boom! Box GTS is Apple CarPlay compatible* and can project phone functions to the screen, including streaming apps, weather, traffic, etc., so the rider can enjoy and use those functions that have been installed on a phone.
