There is some information at http://www.benzworld.org/forums/aud...d-options-update.html?highlight=NavTV+Gateway on this forum. The search tool is your friend.

In addition, one contributor has noted that scrolling on the NavTV unit is much slower than the Dension. One must wait for each song to start playing before scrolling the the next, something that need not be done on the Gateway. I don't know if NavTV has addressed that.

As I recall the freeze-up was a problem with some models of the newest generation iPods and was a Apple firmware problem that was fixed soon after release. In either case, Dension has also updated its firmware and does so at intervals. The current version is 2.10 for D2B and 2.11 for MOST units. Both are recent.

Does anyone know how the Dension Gateway vs. the NavTv Ipod kits

compare? I recently was going to have the Dension Gateway Ipod kit

installed in my 2005 SL 500 but it was recalled due to a needed update to fix

an issue with it freezing up the Ipod.


Thanks

with the navtv kit you lose the ability to use the CD changer... and pay about $400 more. Get the dension.
