    Gateway Update Software/Driver Package

Directly connects your iPod or iPhone to your radio, allowing you to browse your music by Artist, Album, Genre, and Playlist from the radio controls. This direct connection eliminates the need for noisy FM modulated solutions and keeps the iPod's or iPhone's internal battery charged. 

Brings the power of HD Radio broadcasting with the help of the HD Radio Tuner (HDRT). Available separately, the HDRT gives users more channels, more content in exciting formats, all with no subscription fees.

It can also be expanded with an SCC1 Satellite Radio tuner (sold separately) or with the iSimple BluStream Bluetooth Interface (Select Vehicles).

Allows any two devices at once: iPod cable, AUX cable, SCC1 Satellite Tuner (sold separately), HD Radio Tuner (sold separately), or Bluetooth module.
