AVR is an accessory for Gateway 500 which facilitates the playback and source control of video signals. With 4 inputs, you can plug a DVD player, rearview camera and games console, as well as having iPod and USB available through the Gateway 500 itself. AVR can also process video signals from the iPod, and play them back on the original screen in the car.
If you have rear screens fitted, the menu on your audio system expands to offer you each of the sources you have connected to the Gateway and AVR, as RSE (rear seat entertainment) options. You can select one source for the front, and an alternative for the rear.
There are AVR processors available for BMW, Mercedes and Porsche, but the ability to use it depends on the system installed in your car.

How it works
Control at your fingertips
AVR is added to Gateway 500 to increase the number of inputs and enable you to see video content on the original screens of the car. Once fitted, the only effect the user sees is an expanded source menu to include RSE options. You navigate the menus in the same way as for your Gateway functions (iDrive on BMW, or the Comand keys on Mercedes. If a video source is selected, you then select the TV function and your screen will spring to life.
