VIDEO & BLOG-A huge amount of Law Abiding Bikers/Motorcyclists and Harley Davidson owners, and the general public for that matter, wisely use a MAC instead of a PC. MAC is all many people now have in their homes and businesses for good reasons.
I wrote a blog back on October 16, 2013 and at that time there was absolutely no MAC support for the Harley Davidson Boom!™ Box Infotainment System. I had to use my brother's clunky PC to
download the software updates for my Boom Box system, which are becoming routine now.
Well, I am happy to say that Harley Davidson finally got on board and now supports the MAC platform for the routine software updates. Of course they do not state this on the Boom Box portion of their website and have announced it to nobody. Why, I am not sure, but I tested it recently and it worked great for the Boom Box 1.18.1 software update. To learn how to update the system software see the video links at the bottom of this post.

As I have stated, Harley Davidson put the cart before the horse a bit on the Boom Box for the Rushmore Project and is playing catch up now. The system is awesome, but has several issues. I truly believe these issues will be corrected in time with the ongoing software updates.
Remember, the Boom Box is just a computer and needs routine software and map updates just like your smartphone or computer. They are constantly improving the way the system operates and fixing bugs, so this is critical.
Here are some very helpful videos, so you can become familiar with and operate the Boom!™ Box system to include updating the system software:
