Question iPod :: Dennison/Dice/USA Spec????

Help!!!!!

So what is the difference between these units? Essentially they all do the same thing - play your iPod, albeit in limited fashion when it comes to song titles - but they all allow for song control/fwd/back/shuffle.....etc.

I have been wanting to get my iPod hooked up in my new 05 allroad, but after all the searching and looking I cant' see what the real diff is for that model year with the stock Bose Sympany II deck.

Also, the only unit readily available where I have been looking is the USASpec (for ~$280 installed).

So what do I do? Do help a noob out Any info/feeds/suggestions/comments are welcome - wouldn't want to get something then realize that I had a better option.

Just got the NEW Denison GW16AC1 Gateway 100. The most recent model GW100 has been updated to include DIS display on most Audi/VW models. The iPod information is neatly displayed between the tach and speedo and controlled by either the steering wheel, head unit or the iPod itself if you so choose.

I installed one on my 09 TTS and a buddy's 07 A4 Avant in less than 10 minutes each (with little to no car audio install experience.) We both have the RNS-E (NAV) head unit, but the Gateway 100 is available for all Audi head units.

AutoMobility Distribution is the Canadian distributor for Denison. You should be able to look up a local dealer from their website or give them a call.

Another option is Enfig Car Stereo out of the US. The sell direct and have produced a heap of great review and install videos their Enfig YouTube channel:

Same here. Just bought the blitzsafe and it woks great. I wanted to control the iPhone from the touch screen. So it's a perfect for for me.

Though I believe they do have adapters that will allow unit and steering wheel controls for a few more bucks.
