Tuck your source away in the glove box and you can control using the car radio buttons as well as device charging in the car. The interior of your car looks exactly like it did the day you bought it, it just does a lot more. You must choose the docking cable option for a neater installation by simply having everything tucked away in your glove box or armrest.

Dension translates CD changer messages to iPod controls and switches the iPod automatically on and off as you select/deselect the CD changer source and your iPod is charged while connected. The Bluetooth facility allows you to pair your phone (whilst in CD-Changer mode) and make handsfree calling.
When connected to the car Gateway Lite 3 emulates a CD changer or an Aux input. The radio detects the music signal from iPod, iPhone or USB and plays it back through the car speakers. Device control happens by the radio buttons and the steering wheel controls. Once you’ve selected the album you can select the track by using the FFWD button of your radio or steering wheel.
Every Gateway Lite BT comes with a comprehensive user manual but for quick start up just select the CD changer function; plug-in your iPod, iPhone or USB into the dock cable or cradle and enjoy the music provided by the Dension Gateway Lite. For detailed user manual please check downloadable documents below. Every Gateway Lite BT 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. If your car is fitted with a CD changer, the Dension Gateway will take its place.
When you receive an incoming call in Gateway mode (CD-Changer mode), the music gets muted and the ringing tone is directed to the speakers (phone dependent). Please wait 4 seconds (within this time the Handsfree profile is activated) then press the Next track button to pick the phone up. You can hang up an ongoing call or reject an incoming call if you press the Previous track button. After finishing the call, the Gateway will return to the original Gateway source
