The Harley Davidson Boom! GTS Information System

Harley Davidson boom GTS (GPS Touch Screen) information system has received an enhanced display and a large group of different features which has made it much more perfect. Its touchscreen and sides have gotten a more modern look, and the framework currently has a compatibility of the Apple play and also the hand-voice recognition.

It first made headlines back in 2013/2014, but the Boom! Infotainment system was due for some upgrades, so for 2019, the new Boom! Box GTS infotainment system gets an improved display, a faster processor for enhanced performance, and a host of other features to make it even more compatible with external programs. The touchscreen and frame get a more contemporary look, and the system now has Apple CarPlay compatibility (when a microphone is used with Harley’s optional Genuine Motor Accessories headsets) as well as hands-free voice recognition, which is a welcome plus.

Probably most noticeable is the 6.5-inch Boom! Box GTS display. It has a Gorilla Glass touchscreen surface that goes edge to edge in a modern design that mimics the latest high-end automotive displays, and its surface treatment minimizes reflection for better visibility in daylight. The improved TFT (Thin Film Transistor) display screen now has 100 percent more resolution, higher contrast, and is optimized for use in wet or dry conditions.

Harley also says the Boom! Box GTS processes faster, has more memory, and is more responsive than the previous Boom! Box 6.5 GT system. It has a start-up time of just 10 seconds, and a route calculation time of just 2.5 seconds. The interface is now more responsive to familiar smartphone gestures like pinching, swiping, and dragging. The new home screen display is also simpler to navigate. As you can see in the image, there are just three key system buttons: Navigation, Phone, and Music. The individual Navigation, Phone, and Music screens feature condensed information that’s easy to read and navigate, while the new Quick Jump feature allows easy access to Navigation, Audio, and Vehicle info. Press and hold Home on the left-hand control for the pop-up menu. A new Back button has been added to the right-hand control. There is a high-contrast viewing mode and the background colors are also user-modifiable. The whole GTS system can be managed through either the touchscreen (even with gloves) or with the thumb-operated five-way joysticks located on the left- and right-hand controls.
