Dension Gateway 500
The Gateway 500, Dension's master Piece of In Car Entertainment. The Gateway 500 is a special piece of engineering that really highlights how much vehicle development and in car entertainment systems have improved over the past decade.
The Gateway 500 D2B is designed to work with Mercedes D2B fibre optic systems (Audio 10/ Audio 30 and Command) available in the majority of Older Mercedes vehicles. Unlike normal wiring, firbe optics sends light signals through thin glass fibres spanning the vehicle monitoring all car systems (not only entertainment), this increases the performance and allows for future enhancements of the factory systems. However due to this normal kits are not compatible with any vehicle that has D2B or MOST fibre optic systems.
Although the Dension Gateway 500 is designed primarly for the iPod, a large number of other devices are compatible with the system. USB memory sticks and Mass storage devices can be connected via the USB input & any device with an AUX output can also be attached. Although it is the iPod compatibility that really sets the gateway 500 aside from the others. When connected the iPod functions are accessable safely through your vehicle steering controls and your music and video library can be accessed and played in perfect quality through the factory system.
One of the best features of the Gateway 500 is the ability to upgrade the system in the form of "addons" or additional devices that allow the system to perform specific tasks. The BTA1500 bluetooth adapter allows you to make use of your phone whilst driving, auto muting the music system when the phone is in use. Another useful device is the AVR (which isn't released yet) however when released the AVR will allow videos stored on you iPod or USB device to be played on factory fitted screens (in the headrest for example). The greatest feature on the AVR is that it is capable of playing media from multisource's. So you might want to listen to your iPod in the front whist the kids watch they're favourite movie in the back.
This break through by dension is one of many on the way in the coming years that will allow you to integrate many other systems and devices into your vehicle seamlessly to make sure you stay ahead of the technology curve.
Please double check the compatibility tab as the gateway 500 is only compatible with fibre optic systems (D2B & MOST) a list of compatible vehicles is located in the compatibility tab above.
