Use your iPod with your car stereo! The Gateway 100 iPod car adapter brings you maximum control of your iPod, with minimum fuss. This iPod connector opens up the car’s original audio system to allow the playback of iPod music, through your entertainment system’s speakers. Hide your iPod away in the glove box and you can control its functions using the controls on your radio. Depending on your car’s display capability, you will see information displayed on your radio or information cluster* telling you the song names, or where you are in the menus. There are no extra boxes to stick on the dashboard, or unsightly cables trailing around the vehicle. The interior of your car looks exactly like it did the day you bought it, it just does a lot more.

*The ability to display text depends on the display capability of your car. As a rough guide, if your car displays radio station names, it is probably capable of displaying your iPod track information.  

The Gateway 100 iPod car adapter works like an interpreter between your devices and the car, converting instructions from the car’s controls into a language that your iPod can understand and respond to. When connected into the car, Gateway 100 emulates a CD changer (usually, sometimes it’s an auxiliary input), thus making those controls on the radio available to control the devices connected to it. Of course, every Gateway 100 comes with a comprehensive user manual, but in most cases, you select the CD changer function, then CD6, and a series of menus are opened up to you to control your music. The FFWD key and/or steering wheel controls are then all you need to navigate around your iPod.

Gateway 100 will also send all this information to the display in your car, which might be in the radio, between the dials (speed and revs), or in the centre console, so you can always see exactly where you are or what’s playing.

If your car is fitted with a CD changer, the Dension Gateway will take its place, but you can retain it by fitting a CD retention kit. To download a user manual, click here.

Gateway 500 is a digital device, using fibre optic connections, which works with cars which use the MOST (Media Oriented System Transport) digital system to carry entertainment information around the car. These cars are predominantly the higher specification models of Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Porsche, plus some Aston Martin, Saab and Volvo models. Click on your car make to see if it is compatible. Once the Gateway 500 is installed, you can connect your iPod or USB and display it’s content on your vehicle screen. By adding the optional BTA 1500 module, your phone can be integrated, and with the AVR, you can control video input around different screens in the car, including iPod video. There are no extra boxes to stick on the dashboard, or unsightly cables trailing around the vehicle. The interior of your car looks exactly like it did the day you bought it, it just does a lot more.

Gateway 500 works like an adapter between your devices and the car, converting instructions from the car’s controls e.g. BMW iDrive or Audi MMi rotary controller, into a language that your phone or iPod can understand and respond to. When connected into the car, Gateway 500 emulates a CD changer, but has a switch which allows you to swap between the Gateway and the changer. Of course, every Dension Gateway 500 car adapter comes with a comprehensive user manual, but in most cases, you select the CD changer function, then CD6, and a series of menus are opened up to you to control your devices. The system controller in the car is then all you need to navigate around your devices.

Gateway 500 will also send all this information to the display in your car, usually a screen, so you can always see exactly where you are, what’s playing, or who’s calling you. There are a few MOST audio systems which do not support text from the iPod, and for these we would recommend using a Gateway Lite. For a list of these vehicles and details of the product, click here.
