Gateway Lite is a new, simple to use interface that will be the standard entry level product for both iPod and USB integration in cars which cannot support text.
No menu structure to remember or complex operations to perform, just plug in the iPod or USB and select CD6. Music is now played through the car audio system.
Gateway Lite can accommodate iPod (with a dock cable or cradle) or USB, but to keep selection easy, there is no facility to switch between them. Whichever device was plugged in last is the one that will play.
Control of the iPod is from the click wheel and all functions will operate as normal, however the skip buttons on your radio (or steering wheel) can be used to move forward and backwards through your tracks. The device will also charge while it is plugged in to the Gateway Lite. If your USB device has a folder structure, or playlists, these can be accessed by selecting the corresponding CD number on your changer controls, up to the number of CDs your changer control is capable of handling, i.e. CD1 will play folder 1, CD2 will play folder 2 etc.
