Just because you've got a factory radio in your Mazda, doesn't mean you have to leave your iPod at home. Just install this iSimple iPod 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 Mazda radio.
Your Mazda radio must be equipped with, or have the ability to support satellite radio in order to use this adapter. You'll get a handy auxiliary input for connecting an MP3 player, game, or other source, plus you can add HD Radio™ and Bluetooth® via adapters (not included).
Note to Mazda 6 and CX-9 owners: If your Mazda is equipped with the mid-line or navigation radio, it will only support basic iPod operation. You'll know you have a mid-line radio if you see a small color LCD screen in the middle of the face of the radio.

Overview: The iSimple Gateway Automotive Media Interface (ISMZ571) seamlessly connects select iPods & iPhoned to many 2009-2011 Mazda factory stereos. The iSimple Gateway Automotive Media Interface also offers an auxiliary input for connection of other portable audio devices to your factory stereo. In addition, the iSimple ISMZ571 can be connected to the iSimple HD Radio tuner (sold separately). The iSimple Gateway Automotive Media Interface provides full control of these connected devices (except Auxiliary) through your vehicle's factory installed radio & steering wheel controls. The ISMZ571 will retain your original factory system features, such as satellite radio & rear seat entertainment (if equipped).
Note: You can only connect two of the supported devices (iPod/iPhone, Auxiliary, or HD Radio).
Vehicle Compatibility: The iSimple Gateway Automotive Media Interface (ISMZ571) is compatible with the select 2009-2011 Mazda vehicles equipped with a factory radio which supports Satellite Radio. The Mazda factory radio must have a button labeled "SAT". This indicates that the factory radio is satellite ready. The iSimple Gateway ISMZ571 is compatible with the following Mazda vehicles (as of 6/27/2013).
Note: The vehicle must be either equipped with, or have the ability to support Satellite Radio. Please use the Crutchfield Car Selector to verify compatibility with your vehicle.

- Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.
iPod Compatibility Note: The Mazda 6 & CX-9 equipped with mid-line & navigation radio will only support basic iPod operation. Mid-line radios will have a small color LCD screen in the middle of the face of the radio.
HD Radio Ready: The iSimple Gateway ISMZ571 allows you to listen to HD Radio in your vehicle by connecting the iSimple HD Radio Tuner (Model # HDRT, sold separately from the manufacture). Once the HD Radio tuner is connected, the iSimple Gateway module offers HD Radio audio playback, control, and information display from your factory radio.
Auxiliary Input: The iSimple Gateway Automotive Media Interface is equipped with a right-angle male 3.5mm stereo connector & a pair of female stereo RCA jacks for connecting an external portable audio device, which features an audio output or headphone output.
Note: Only one device can be connected to the unit's auxiliary input at one time.
Dip Switches: The iSimple Gateway ISMZ571 features four dip switches to configure the module for your compatible Mazda vehicle.
Vehicle Harness: You will need to disconnect the Mazda factory radio's harness & plug the iSimple Gateway's vehicle harness into the back of the Mazda factory radio. The Mazda factory radio's harness then plugs into the iSimple Gateway's vehicle harness.
