Download 1. Introduction Thank you for purchasing the iSimple® Media Gateway. The Media Gateway is designed to provide endless hours of listening pleasure from your factory radio. To ensure that your SCC1 satellite radio tuner performs correctly with your radio, we recommend that you read this entire manual before attempting installation of the Media Gateway. The Media Gateway allows connectivity for Sirius Satellite Radio tuner (SCC1 sold seperately) enabling full control of this device from the factory installed radio. It also retains original system features such as rear seat entertainment (if equipped). 2. Precautions PREVENTING DAMAGE TO YOUR VEHICLE Some installations require you to make wiring connections. To eliminate the risk of an electrical short, we recommend disconnecting the vehicle’s battery prior to installation. If you do not feel comfortable making these connections, we suggest you seek professional installation. PROPER MOUNTING LOCATION Securely install the interface in a location free from: heat, humidity, moving parts, sharp metal edges or direct sunlight. We recommend securing the interface to a suitable location using: double sided tape, VelcroTM or zip-ties. 3.
