[prMac.com] Clearwater, Florida - For those that own late-model Mazda vehicles, the days of needing a FM modulator or 3.5mm auxiliary cable to enjoy music from an iPod(R) or iPhone(R) are over thanks to iSimple(R). Today, iSimple - a leader in smartphone-to-vehicle integration kits and accessories - announced that its popular GateWay(TM) (PXAMG) automotive docking solution for the iPod and iPhone is now compatible with many 2010-2011 Mazda models. Additionally, the company introduced a new Mazda-specific GateWay kit (ISMZ571) and added select Mazda applications to its GateWay kit for Ford (ISFD571). The GateWay kit for Mazda (ISMZ71) will ship from the company's four warehouses the first week of April.
Available at car audio specialty stores nationwide, the GateWay expands the audio and entertainment capabilities of most OEM stereo systems by delivering digital quality sound directly from any model of iPod or iPhone using the vehicle's factory radio controls. The GateWay also supports battery charging on all models of iPod and iPhone with 30-pin connectors, and offers an additional audio input for use with other mp3 players, smartphones and tablets. Users can further enhance the features of their GateWay with a number of upgrades including the NuRadio(TM) (HDRT) HD Radio tuner, the BluStream(TM) (ISBT21) hands-free Bluetooth module, and a satellite radio receiver using a SatWire(TM) (ISSR11) cable.
