Q. Function of CD1-CD6 (or buttons 1-6)

The CD changer (and MOST) protocol is what the Gateway uses, so that the car can recognize it. This protocol is a little limited, therefore most of all you have the Next/Previous track buttons and CD1-CD6 (buttons 1-6) for controlling the music playback – but the control wheel of the car works in most cases too.

  • CD1: If you select this one, you can see the list of playlists (iPod/iPhone) or folders (USB stick).
  • CD2: With Disc 2 you can browse the Artists.
  • CD3: After pressing Disc 3 you will be able to select between the available Albums.
  • CD4: Under Disc 4 you will find an extra menu where you can select „Play all” list or you can turn ON/OFF the Random, repeat or Scan options.
  • CD5: This is the Now playing menu where the current played song info can be seen. if you select a music file or don’t do anything in the menu for more seconds, the Gateway will switch to CD5 automatically.
  • CD6: Disc 6 is the Menu of the Gateway. Under this option, you can find the Source menu where you can select between the different connected sources. Also you can browse the content of the active source. The content of the browsing menu is source dependent.

Please note: If you have a car that supports no text information display in CD changer mode, then please check the user manual of your Gateway device "9. Operation in Non-Text capable cars" section, to see how you can control it with no text display.
