source. This is usually done by pressing the CDC or CD
button, or pressing the CD button twice. If in doubt
consult the audio section of your car’s manual.
Connect your iPod or USB drive to the Gateway. The
first file on the device starts to play. If the Gateway
has been used earlier, music will play from your iPod
or USB from the point last played. If both are connected, the last used source will continue to play.
Switching off the radio (or the ignition) will stop
playback and put the devices connected to standby.
Next/Back and Random/Repeat/Scan buttons (radio

Please refer to the manual of your car audio system
for details on how to operate. Gateway Lite BT needs
to be installed and configured correctly for your
vehicle. For assistance with installation, please refer
to the Installation Guide.
Two operation modes are available:
iPod User Interface (iPod UI)
iPod Gateway Interface (iPod GW)
In iPod UI mode the original user interface of the
iPod remains active (i.e. the click wheel still works) so
you can use it for browsing normally.
During playback the Radio displays CD5. The shown
track numbers and time counter are not synchronized with the iPod. We recommend the use of this
mode if you want original iPod functionality.
In iPod GW mode the click wheel or the touch screen
is disabled2, the iPod displays the currently played
song information. (On iPod touch and iPhone the
‘Accessory attached’ message will be displayed only.)
iPod playback control is possible only from the car
stereo (Head Unit or steering wheel). In this mode
the track number and the time is displayed on the
radio display (Radio dependent).
Please note that on iPod touch and iPhone running iOS 6 or
newer the ‘GW mode’ does not disable UI control or normal

Connecting a phone
Depending on the capacity of the USB drive building
the database may take some time. During this process you may not have access to your music, so you
might find our Gateway Indexer Software helpful in
speeding up the indexing procedure. It can be downloaded from
When changing the music content on your USB
drive, it is highly recommended to delete the index
files (GW_DBx.BIN) from the root folder.
Gateway Lite BT is designed for cars without text
display – except for compatible BMW and Toyota

Pair the phone to the Gateway from your phone’s
Bluetooth menu. Enter the Bluetooth menu on your

search for available devices, select Gateway Lite BT
and enter the code 8888 to connect. Check the
connection status on the phone’s screen. Your device
is now paired and will automatically connect each
time the Gateway is switched on and is near (Phone

successful (or the BT was turned off on the phone)
the Gateway tries to reconnect automatically. If the
connection cannot be established or the Gateway
Lite BT is not visible, please turn the radio and the
ignition off, remove the car key, wait for a minute
and retry the pairing procedure.
Receiving, Making Phone calls and dialing
When you receive an incoming call in Gateway mode
(CD-Changer mode), the music gets muted and the
ringtone is directed to the speakers (phone dependent). Please wait for 4 seconds (needed to activate
the Handsfree profile) then press the Next track
button ( ) to accept the call. You can terminate an
ongoing call or reject an incoming call by pressing the
Previous track ( ) button. After finishing the call, the
Gateway will return to the original Gateway source.
If you have an incoming call when the Radio or Single
CD source is playing, the actual audible content will
be muted periodically (the mute wire must be connected to the radio). Press or select the CD-changer
source (Gateway mode) on the radio to answer the
call (the call will be accepted automatically after
switching source). After finishing the call, you can
switch back to the previous source manually.
Making a phone call is possible using the mobile
phone only. The Bluetooth hands free mode works in
Gateway (CD-Changer) mode only. It has to be selected, or the conversation will not be heard through
the car speakers.
You can reject an incoming call by pressing the Previous track button ( ) if the Gateway source is selected.
