Using my iPhone while riding, can I pair my phone to radio speakers
2017 and prior: NO, not without extra hardware.Yes but only to the speakers in a Bluetooth headset. If you have a 2018 or newer spyder then you pair to the bike with headset and smartphone.

2018 and later.......I thought the main idea of the electronic dashboard WAS to be able to connect a smart phone to the dashboard and radio for audio output from the phone.........and that a headset introduces additional problems.
Because many don’t keep up with technology and don’t like reading instructions. So many times we read question after question on “how do I ?????” When all they need to do is read their owners manual. Same thing with learning anything, it requires reading and practicing to learn how something works. The BRP Go app has step by step instructions which aren’t very difficult to follow. I mean, if you’ve ever bluetooth paired your phone to anything then it’s just the same procedure to pair to the bike. If you can pair your headset to the phone then it’s no different pairing to the bike.
OR maybe it is because the instructions are written for "techies" and FAR less people find that stuff easy than you seem to think.Because many don’t keep up with technology and don’t like reading instructions.
I’m not an electronics technician nor a computer expert yet I found it easy to figure out. The instructions are not even technical and are very basic and easy to understand. I’ve read where many use the new system and have no problems.Even some new LED lights interfere with the bluetooth devices.
OH......and by the way......I've been an Electronics/Computer Technician for near to 60 years and do not see some of this new crap as "progress".
My Spyder with a wired headset for the audio has no "garbage" on the dashboard.Less garbage all over the dash and I can keep my hands on the grips and don’t ride distracted.
LEDs interfering with vehicle electronics???
It’s your loss. So far I’ve known many that have added cheap LED lights and have not complained about any other problems. Bluetooth is being used everywhere and is unavoidable. Practically every new car/truck comes with it. Many motorcycles also have it. Honda, BMW, Harley and Can Am. You can even get a toaster with Bluetooth. It’s everywhere!My Spyder with a wired headset for the audio has no "garbage" on the dashboard.
Or certainly no more than what your "APPS" need to have you mess with.
And yes, some LEDs interfere with Bluetooth. Typically cheap ones from Asia that don't have FCC certification.
Look it up.
I am really happy that YOU are happy with your new setup.
But not everybody is.
I will never touch a Spyder newer than 2017 because of it.
I respectfully disagree.It’s your loss.
You say “respectfully” but when YOU capitalize, you are SHOUTING, which is disrespectful. It sounds like YOUR opinion is the only one that counts. I suggest a handle change to UNeasy Rider.

Not ”others”, just you. I didn’t know that bullying is just a style.And I suggest that you refrain from insulting the posting style of others here......or just leave.
Putting just one word in CAPS is a mechanism for emphasis.
I suggest that you try to contribute something useful.
