Pros: No longer need to plug/unplug from phone
Cons: Engine noise bleeds over
The gateway seems to work well and I was excited about the convenience factor of being able to leave it hooked up and not have my phone connected to the car via the audio cable..BUT..theres an annoying whine associated with the engine noise, much like a bad custom stereo install does when its not grounded well. This is on a factory stereo that makes zero noise when my phone is connected physically via the audio cable into the AUX jack. The gateway connected through the AUX jack has engine noise whine, loud enough to be annoying.
