Gateway 500 is a digital music interface, using fibre optic connections for cars with 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/iPhone 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.
Control at your fingertips
Bluetooth technology is familiar to many people now, and the BTA 1500 connects in a similar way to most other Bluetooth devices. Your phonebook will transfer automatically.
If the car is fitted with telephone controls, these will still be operational, and/or you can use a multi function controller such as iDrive or MMi to browse or make calls. When a call comes in, the radio will mute, and the call will be heard through the car speakers*
*BTA will only operate when the entertainment system is in Gateway mode. If you are listening to the radio when a call comes in, simply select CD changer source, and your BTA will operate as described.
*** The package includes the dock cables.
