This is the slickest gadget to come along in a long time IMO. I f you own a smartphone of any type that has bluetooth capability/MP3/pandora, this solves a lot of the ipod/sirius connections to get tunes playing on your boat without wires. This works with any head unit that has an "aux in". Now as soon as you step on the boat - you turn on the gateway and you phone starts streaming tunes to the system , all the while staying in your pocket or on the dash avail to you for tune selection. No more stupid interfaces that you have to scroll or reach forward for, you have that in your phone and it's mobile wireless remote for your tunes. I use an iphone. No power supply needed as iphone runs 15 hours so I cahrge it at night. Oh yeah, this solution was about 50 bucks for the ram mount and the gateway off ebay. No $299 interface boxes, $90 for cables, etc. Here's the original write up on the gateway: http://www.thehulltruth.com/marine-e...o-gateway.html
I remounted the gateway to the back of the acrylic right behind the mount for great reception. Here is the mount. Another thing. we talk about starboard vs acrylic for dash applications - the mount went on with 3M dual lock which sticks perfectly to acrylic but would not stick to starboard.
