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.

Will this work on a 2007 Lexus RX 350 with a Mark Levinson System with Navigation?

Don't know about your application. I never got it to work seamlessly in my 2007 Honda Element. Also, it's a bulky piece of equipment. No recommendation from me.
[ robert  Feb 19, 2019 ]
Q
I have a 2007 Honda accord that came with a cd/aux/xm button. Which product should I consider so I can keep all three options? I like the idea of an aux input, but I am not opposed to a bluetooth connection either. Brand suggestions?

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Q
I need a cable to play music from my Iphone 6 thru the factory radio of the 2008 Scion XB. It has the 30 pin connector on the car and comes with a cable to play an Ipod. Is there something I can buy?
[ Jose  Jan 10, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
My iPod (7th generation) doesn't have the 30-pin connector. I use the 3.5mm audio input to my iPod. You should be able to do the same with your iPhone. Another option is to buy a lightning to 30-pin to lightning adapter.
[ Michael  Jan 11, 2017 ]
A
use a lightning to 30 pin adapter, item #: 472LT30PAD. It will allow you to connect directly, charging and providing audio input.

Q
Can this help as a "hands-free"to make call while driving?
[ Adeyeye  Mar 10, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
Yes and no. This system is analog audio, rather than digital. It has no bluetooth, so wireless calling doesn't work. However, if you're willing to connect the auxiliary cable to your phone for the speaker and continue using your phone's mic, it can work. Not great, but can work. Rather than the Gateway, I ended up going with the iSimple Connect, which is digital and has bluetooth connection.
[ Cody  Mar 14, 2016 ]
A
No, it doesn't have a blue tooth interface. However, if you have an iPhone or iPod you can play music off of these devices--or play music off any device that has an audio out that you could plug headphones into--through your stereo system.
[ Michael  Mar 11, 2016 ]
Q
We got this installed in 2014. We had our battery replaced a month ago and ever since then it doesn't work/connect to our iPhone to play music. How to I fix this?
[ TJ  Mar 06, 2016 ]
