How it works
Control at your fingertips
When connected into the car, Gateway Blue emulates a CD changer (usually, sometimes it’s an auxiliary input), and the radio accepts the music signal sent into it by the iPod, iPhone or USB and plays it back through the audio system speakers.
You can control your digital data source from the clickwheel in the normal way, and once you’ve selected the music you want, you can even repeat the track you like by using the REW buttom on your radio or steering wheel.
Of course, every Gateway Blue comes with a comprehensive user manual, but if you wish to get started quickly, select the CD changer function, connect your Bluetooth capable device and you will have music on board.
Car information and entertainment systems can be complex networks, so Dension always recommends that you have your installation carried out by a qualified installer. To find a selection of suppliers and installers in your country/area, please click here.
The installation will vary slightly in different cars, but in each case, you will have either a cradle, or a dock cable to connect your iPod to. Your installer will ask and advise as to the best place to situate this in your vehicle. The Gateway itself is less than the size of a CD case and will be installed securely out of sight behind the dash. Dension products are all designed so that there is no need to cut cables.
