Audio Gateway what is it?

Tried to get an IPOD kit fitted at MB dealer and apparantly my car does not have an audio gateway.

What is the audio gateway and what does it do?

I have an Audio 20 radio.

The Audio Gateway (AGW) is the central audio communications interface. Something like the control tower at the airport but for audio and communications components in you car: radio, tele-aid, CD changer, navigation drive, Voice Control System etc. it should be tucked away in the left side of the trunk. In order to install the ipod kit you’re going to need access to the AGW. The wiring from ipod kit needs to be run from the AGW in the trunk, along the right side of the car to the ipod control module installed underneath the glove box. You will also need Comand head unit with Aux connection. Don’t know if your Audio 20 has Aux connection in the back or if it will work with the ipod kit. I have a 2003 E320 which had the Audio 50 with no Auxiliary connection in the back. Swapped it out for Comand head unit and installed ipod kit myself.
