I have the Isimple gateway... it has been some time though, and a few F/W updates to boot. :o)
There are a few different designs but they are pretty much all the same. Isimple, Peripheral Electronics and PAC are all the same.
PAC-Audio.com had the latest firmwares that will install on all devices, except gen 1 of the gateway. Which should not be available as new.
The latest firmware should come with the unit since your having it installed.
If not you can install it yourself... just keep in mind your XM stations and Radio code before disconnecting your battery.
I looked around on the net for used ones first, be sure that they are second gen (non blue lable) black box.
I got mine for $50.00 US like new with everything. :o)
All I had to do was get the Honda adapter cable, which was $20.00 at the time.
Installation may take an hour depending on your carefulness.
Though it was not too difficult to perform... you can go to College Hills site and watch the instructional video on the PIE interface.
Very similar. :o)
With the new firmwares this interface is smoother than any other after market available that is universal and has expandability. Most of the posts I have seen are biased with older firmwares and show the early bugs with the interface.
As for Blue tooth, I do not have the module, most say OEM Honda is best, but expensive to install.
You may get lucky and find a complete unit from a specialized Honda wrecker in your location. If your willing to install yourself. :o)
