The ISVW571 features an 11-foot 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 ISVW571 is equipped with a right-angle male 3.5mm stereo connector and a set of female stereo RCA jacks, allowing you to connect another audio source.

Installation Notes: You will need to disconnect the Volkswagen factory radio's harness and plug the iSimple Gateway's vehicle harness into the back of the factory radio. Your radio must have satellite radio capability or be SiriusXM-ready for this adapter to work. Please refer to the "Details" tab for specific information.

Q
Is the adapter bluetooth?
[ Pat  May 15, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
No. This adapter provides a physical connection for compatible Apple devices and a standard auxiliary audio input (3.5mm stereo minijack) for your non-Apple devices. It does not provide Bluetooth.
