Hello all,

I'm looking to install the gateway 100 into my alfa 159 found here: Alfa Romeo ice>Link Gateway 100 | Dension ice>Link Plus iPod Car Kit | iPod Car Kit Direct

I want to still be able to control the songs through the ipod and not the stereo cd's changer buttons because of this i'd use the active cradle and not keep my ipod in the glove box.

Where would be the best place to feed the wire out from the back of the stereo into the active cradle? Has anyone done this install before?

Thank you in advance.

You can easily get it out through the passenger
side of the centre console. Down in the footwell
as the side panel just pops off.

I had a GSM antenna routed out the top of that panel
and pushed in between the two black rubbery surrounds
of the centre alu console and the gear stick alu plate.

Just above the phone cradle in this photo:

Bearing in mind I'm a lazy boy when it comes to
chasing wires:


Once you've pulled the panel I've X'd,
you can pull the cable through at any point
along the green line.

If you come out between the two surrounds
(red line) you can wedge the cable between
the two half of the surrounds and make a good
quick job of it. If you play the cable right you
can butt it up against the surround/aluminium
and you wouldn't notice it.



Are you sure you want to use that bracket?
I fitted one and it left an unsightly bulge in the surround
and it can mark/deform the aluminium console
insert. :(

Great picture, very helpful.

Can you recommend a better docking solution? I don't want to have to drill into any fascia and thats why I chose that bracket.
