(Important note on ease of installation: This is absolutely the best product we sell for Ford. Unlike other products on the market, it is completely plug and play, no need to make separate power and ground connections. Further, it connects directly at the factory radio not at sirius tuner which is troublesome to get at, Most ford car radios are easily accessible by removing a panel and a few 7mm bolts at the front of the car where you usually plug in your ipod, this is the best place to connect the unit. We work in the cars and can help you if you need it. Scroll down to see all of our pictures and videos.

If you have a newer Iphone 5, be sure to add this and select it from the drop down when ordering in the description.
Control from the IPOD itself or from the Factory radio (you can choose mode from radio)
To clarify operation:
When IPOD mode is selected, you get full text through the factory radio and full controls from the factory radio
When AUX1 mode is selected, you get full control THROUGH the IPOD and the sound is fed in directly (not locked!)
When AUX2 mode is selected, you get aux audio from the aux input
When HD mode is selected, you select the optional HD tuner
Vehicle MUST be either equipped with, or have the ability to support Satellite Radio
HD Radio support requires the purchase of the HDRT (sold separately, use drop down to add and to order)
Aftermarket Satellite Radio support requires the purchase of the ISSR11 & an SCC1 tuner (both sold separately, Canadian SCC-1C is not supported - use drop down to add and to order)
Radios that are equipped with an internal satellite tuner DO NOT support an auxiliary input or aftermarket satellite radio through the PXAMG. The factory auxiliary input & satellite radio will be retained but you CAN NOT add these features with the PXAMG.
Not compatible with vehicles that have a radio with an internalSAT tuner and are not equipped with SYNC
2011+ models equipped with Navigation Radios are not compatible In 2009 Ford changed the radios in the following vehicles halfway through the year from having an external satellite radio tuner to having an internal satellite radio tuner. These vehicles will not be able to support an Auxiliary input or aftermarket Satellite radio through the ISFD571:
Mercury Mariner Non-navigation radios must have an "AUX, "Sirius" or "SAT" button to be compatible
Vehicle Specific Notes
2009+ Mazda Tribute: The radio in these vehicles may be equipped with an internal satellite tuner with no distinguishing marks on the face of the radio.
If the radio has a yellow satellite antenna plugged into the back, the satellite tuner is internal and the PXAMG is not compatible.

Using a separate vehicle-specific harness, the Gateway plugs directly into the factory radio and provides iPod connectivity as well as HD Radio integration through the Peripheral Electronics HD Radio Tuner (HDRT). Unlike many integration solutions, the PXAMG retains OEM satellite radio, rear-seat entertainment controls and key driver convenience features to deliver a seamless user experience.
In addition, the Gateway’s extra auxiliary input supports many other portable electronics. This includes everything from navigation and game systems to satellite radio tuners and DVD players—making the Gateway a central hub for multiple portable technologies.
Specifically, the Gateway iPod Interface works with the iPhone and all iPod versions that use the standard 30-pin dock connector. It provides dual iPod control from either the clickwheel or the factory radio, allowing users to track forward and back for songs and browse by artist, playlist, genre, and album. If controlled from the radio, this information is displayed on the radio screen for easy navigation.
The HDRT is available separately and plugs into the Gateway. It receives analog and digital HD Radio stations and provides complete control of AM and FM tuning through the factory radio. Along with no subscription fees, users enjoy crystal-clear AM and FM reception and expanded content with exciting new formats. The HDRT displays all HD Radio information on the radio screen, as well as the artist and song when broadcast.
The result is a single interface that speaks directly to those consumers whose on-the-go lifestyle is driven by the growing number of portable electronics devices. With the Gateway, consumers finally have the one product they need to connect those and future devices to an automobile’s media system without impacting its network integrity, performance and capabilities.
