I am writing this review based on installing the item myself into my 2005 Buick Rendezvous:
I purchased the iSimple because, like many of you out there, I wanted to listen to my iPod through the radio. FM transmitters just plain stink for sound quality, so that is completely out. I also ran into the problem that I couldn't install my aftermarket stereo without loosing all of my safety chimes, steering wheel controls and on-star (class 2 factory radio), unless I wanted to pay up the WAZOO for all sorts of extra adapters and harnesses. I took a shot with the iSimple ISGM575, because it offered a way to hook the iPod up to the factory radio without loosing any of the functions of the factory radio like on-star... and it was the BEST choice I could have made.
Pro's: Other than the fact that my rendezvous' dash was a PAIN in the butt to remove, the installation was so very easy, just unplug, connect and bam! A 12 foot iPod cord gave me the option to put the connection virtually anywhere I wanted in the car. You have the choice of selecting the iPod direct connect to allow control of the iPod from the factory stereo controls AND steering wheel controls OR use the AUX setting to control the iPod via its own click wheel. When using the iPod direct connect feature, the name of the artist, song, time elapsed and time of day show up on the factory radio (but not when using the AUX setting). Scrolling through playlists/artists etc, is pretty fast when using the factory radio controls. Sound quality is PERFECT (depending, of course, on the quality of your digital music copy). The availability to add a second AUX port, HD or satellite radio or DVD console if i ever want to in the future. All products are not without flaws however. Here are some of the things that I wish could be better...
When using the factory radio to control the iPod, there is no button to shuffle the songs. You either have to set this on the iPod before you plug it in, or unplug it every time you want to change the setting. When hitting skip to the next song using the factory radio or steering wheel controls, there is about a 2 second delay... and sometimes you have to hit the skip button again to get to the next song. The album of the song you are listening to is not displayed, other than in search modes. These are just minor inconveniences, but none the less are still annoying at times. In all honesty though, these cons do not even come close to outweighing the pros of this product. I am very happy with this purchase and considering it cost me about a 1/3 of the price of having an aftermarket stereo installed, what could be better?

Better than Dice
I have had this 6 months now and am very happy with it. It was fairly easy to install and is easy to use. Steering wheel controls are supported, not only for my music library, but also for Pandora and Slacker apps.
My other car has a unit from Dice. The iSimple unit is much better than the Dice unit. The Dice unit is flaky, the radio and steering wheel controls do not work, and Dice customer service simply ignores you when to contact them for service.

Great product easy to install
Great product. This is the second unit I purchased the first one was for my truck and we liked it so much I purchased the second for my wife's car. The sound quality far surpasses the FM receiver style iPod adapter she use to use.

iSimple ISGM575 is well worth the money!
This device transforms your car's music system in a big way. Not only can you take your entire music library with you on the road, you can also listen to your favorite Pandora stations at any time. It's a musical experience every time you fire up! Can't imagine driving without my iSimple.

Now that I have the iSimple installed, I will never be without one in any vehicle I own. The installation was pretty easy if you aren't afraid to get behind the dashboard of your vehicle. It has a couple of setup options on how to control your device either from your radio or from the device itself which I choose. I love having the nice clear sound that it produces unlike the FM transmitters I had been using for years. I would buy one again without hesitation.

Review of iSimple Gateway ISGM575
Instructions were a bit vague for all of the stuff you need to get to the back of the head unit, but everything was easy to figure out, install, and use. Well marked out and separated cords. Good product, the headphone jack is a little weak though--no problems with it yet I just noticed it bends really easily though.
