Many motorcycle stereo systems today even feature Bluetooth connectivity. Basically, this means you can connect Bluetooth-enabled devices to them, such as your smartphone. So anything that plays on your smartphone will play on your motorcycle's stereo system.

Who says stereo systems are used strictly for playing music? While most motorcycle owners choose to install them for this very reason, there are other benefits associated with these devices, such as the ability to play voice navigation. Using your motorcycle's stereo system, you can play turn-by-turn directions to help you reach your destination. This eliminates the need to constantly pull off on the side of the road to check your map. Just fire up a mapping service app like Google Maps, input your destination, and it will reveal the fastest route to reach your destination.
