Yes, it works, and the sound quality is excellent, but navigating the
discs will take some patience. For whatever reason the Soundgate adapter causes
"lagtime" when pressing the track +/- buttons on the dash or steering wheel, so
you can't hit the buttons really fast to go forward/backwards through the
MP3s/tracks... In fact, if you push the + button too fast, the track numbers
actually start going backwards?!?! But you can still go at a reasonable speed.
If you have >99 MP3 files on a CD, in order to get to #100, you have
to go all the way up to #99, then hit + one more time and although the display
will say "01" you're actually on 100. Or, you could start at the "real" 01, and
hit the - button. In my case, this CD had 146 files on it, so if you hit "-"
from track 01, the display says 47 (hope my math is right), and from there you
can keep hitting "-" until you get to 01, at which point it wouldn't flip back
to 99 unless I held down "-" to get manual seek.
Anyways, the interface
is a little quirky and it's easy to get lost, but at least it works.. It's kinda
funny in a way.. It's difficult to predict how the Alpine changer numerizes the
track numbers based on the directory structure of the MP3 CD.. it's always a
surprise what song will come on next :)
