IPOD Question

I have read around and done loads of research on this topic, and have even posed some of my own questions in other forums but i am still unclear. I have a 2006 Mercedes S350, from what i have found it does not have an AUX jack so Mercedes iPod set up will not work but will the Dension Gateway 500 work? On the websites i have looked on it says up to 2005 model year is that correct or will it work on a 2006? what do i need to do to get an iPod installed in my Benz

The chart I checked on the Dension site at Dension - Compatibility showed the Gateway 500 to be compatible with S-Classes equipped with MOST bus through model year 2007. An '06 would be nearly identical to an '05 - and I have installed one in my '05.

I suggest that you keep up with posts by Golfnut and Rob13572468 concerning installation of the GW 500 Version 3 hardware that is now being shipped; there are some questions on the new installation manual instructions that route the CDC directly to a new fiber optic input, when the CDC is in the trunk; and whether the earlier installation, such as that used for the GW 500 Version 1 and 2 hardware, is the only practical installation for a trunk-mounted CDC. See

The installation manuals have been a consistent weak point in Dension Gateway 500 product. I'm sure we'll get it figured out, but long-distance installations over the web are difficult to troubleshoot.

You would need the MOST version of the Gateway 500.
