ACM - Gateway 500 coming BACK!!!
Hi guys, im not all that knowlegable on retro fitting the ACM, Im looking to do i tmyself. After looking on the forums and speaking to a few experienced retrofitters I found out that it was the Dension Gateway 500 model that is needed for the ACM upgrade/retrofit. So I went on ebay to look and there are a few on there that go for about £100 or so. These have usually come from Mercedes, BMW or Audi cars etc and are not compatible with Jaguar cars sofware/the optical & power cables are different).
After much research with no luck, I decided to email Dension and ask them about the upgrade and if they could shed some light on why the website does not have a jaguar section. This morning to my suprise I receive a phone call from a Dension representative who chats to me for about 15 mins and explaines that whnen Jaguar was taken over by a chinese company the parts required to make the Gateway 500 fit the jaguars were no longer available and so they could not supply the units anymore.
He also informed me that they have now sourced the required parts to make these units available to jaguar owners once again and so should be made available for purchase some time in April 2013. The downside is that the price will increase and I am led to believe that the product will only be sold through jaguar dealerships, not through dension themselves.
Will update when I get more info.
Well that will please a lot of people, across the X/S/XJ ranges there must be a sizeable market, let's hope for some improved firmware too!
I didn't know Tata had been bought over by the Chinese.
