    Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    Installed this yesterday and wanted to let you all know it is a fantastic unit. Sounds incredible, integrates flawlessly into the PCM, gives you full text and is much, much better than the IBM unit that I have in the M3.

    What have other's experienced?

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    Glad to hear it all went well Hank. Post pics if you have any.

    We have the units in stock now (finally) but they are moving out as fast as they come in!

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    How is the unit installed? and Where do you have the ipod plug coming out? I just received my 500.. did you do the sat radio as well?

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    I'll post pictures today. The iPod is installed in my glove box, I wanted that located because of the lock available, and the switch is mounted on the ceiling of the glove box so that it is very convenient.

    The USB connected is located under the dash on the passenger side on the right side of the dash, it is hidden but very accessible.

    The dealer did the installation and charged me 2 hours of labor to do the install.

    It looks great, and works very well. Again, I'm very impressed with the sound, best I've heard but that may also be because I'm using Apple Lossless compression instead of MP3 compression.

    So far I haven't found any flaws but still playing with it.

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    No one should use MP3.

    AAC 128 minimun (equivalent of 192 MP3).

    Personally all my library is in 160 or 192 AAC, one day to be all Apple lossless when storage will be cheaper.

    Back on topic: how slow is the interface with very large playlists?
    Can you toggle the shuffle function on and off from the interface?

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    Glove box install.

    Not sure I can see the photos...can you make them bigger please? Just kidding

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    I knew I was going to get s&*( for them but I didn't have time to resize.

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    Nice addition, Hank. How many cuts can you get on a disc?

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    KJB,
    Not sure what you mean, the iPod is a 60gb iPod so there are roughly 2300 songs on it using apple lossless compression which is CD like sound.

    The sound is fantastic. Does that answer your question?

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    Hank,

    That's what I meant. The reference to a "disc" was the result of not being focused enough while typing the post - unlike most newer computers, I'm lousy at multitasking. I should have just asked my kids about the iPod capacity.
    I'm trying to get my son to burn a CD in MP3 format so I can get more tunage to each disc, but I have to stand in line behind all his friends! Maybe I'll just get the iPod.

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    Do I get this switch in the Dension box? What is the switch for? I guess you you could run sat radio right into that aux port. PS.. i am printing this page so I can have my dealer copy the install... do you have a pic of where the silver box is mounted or is that the box in the glove box? thanks

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    Sorry about not getting back sooner, on the road.

    Yes the Switch is in the Dension Kit and it switches the unit from the CD player function to the iPod function through the ice-link gateway.

    Yes you could use the Aux in on the Switch also for any other device, not sure what data other than sound would be transmitted though, I haven't had a need to play with that.

    The switch also allows you to enter setup mode on the icelink unit.

    Hope that helps.

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    We did a Cayman install the other day that also went very well. This time, we mounted the unit up under the firewall area above the passenger footwell, tapped the fiber from there, ran the cables to the head unit, and had the clip and switch in the roof of the glove box. Didn't need to run cables all over the place, and the entire unit is inside the vehicle.

    Slick. More to come.

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    that is exactly how the dealer did my install also. The pics, while big, show the iPod on the roof of the glove box and the switch mounted in the roof also. If I where interested in the Aux inputs I would have installed the switch deeper into the glove box so you could close the glove box while having the aux unit/player connected.

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    Would you mind explaining how the Dension things work from a user perspective? I know some early iPod adapters just mapped cd 1 to playlist 1, cd 2 to playlist 2, etc. You could not browse by artist, album, song, playlist, genre, etc. as you can on an iPod.

    I'm wondering what the UI on the Dension is for selecting music.

    I just put a deposit down on a 997 Turbo. I won't get a slot till later this year. I'm now going through the fun step of figuring out just how I want to order it.

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    You can browse the music through PCM via, playlists, artist, Album, Songs, etc.. You may have to wait a while for the data to load but it will then allow you to scroll down the entire list of whatever method you selected.

    Re: Denison ICE-Link 500 Gateway

    Just for clarification, you need to hold the fast forward button down to enter the browse functions in the iPod. When you select <artist> or <albums> you just simply hold the fast forward button down for more then a second and the head unit will then retrieve and load the data from the iPod. It is really quite cool.
