Play your music through your factory radio
Play your music through your factory radio
Your iPod or iPhone is also your music storage device, with hours of tunes you've selected. But you couldn't play those tunes in your car...until now. Just install this iSimple Gateway ISIM74 adapter — it not only allows you to listen to all your favorite tunes through your car's speakers, it even lets you control song and playlist selections right from your radio.
The ISIM74 features an 11' Apple 30-pin cable for direct connection from your Apple device to your car's factory radio, allowing you to use the radio's controls to browse your Apple device by Artist, Album, Genre, and Playlist. If you have a newer iPod/iPhone device with a Lightning connector, then you will also need Apple's Lightning to 30-pin adapter. And the GateWay isn't just an iPod adapter; the ISIM74 is equipped with a right-angle male 3.5mm stereo connector and a set of female stereo RCA jacks, allowing you to connect an MP3 player or game.
Installation Notes: You will need to disconnect your factory radio's harness and plug the iSimple Gateway's vehicle harness into the back of the factory radio. Your factory radio must have an XM, SAT, AUX, CD, AM-SAT, or DISC button to work with this adapter. Please refer to the "Details" tab for specific information.
