Description of the unit:

To know more about Gateway card for 3DS, visit here (I have no link with them, I only use it as a regular customer and decided to create a device to improve the use):

You can use the Gateway exploit for Gateway 3DS card with a 3DS system version less than 9.2 (included) only if you have a Wifi connection with internet. This is teh regular use of it. Then you connect to the Gateway website with the internet browser of the console and then the exploits goes on and you are in Gateway mode. But the problem I solved here is: when you don’t have internet wifi available, when you are outside your home, in a train, a car or anywhere with no wifi connection? Then you can’t use your Gateway. So I thought about a solution… here is the solution: the Gateway 3DS Traveler 2.0.

It creates a hotspot (ad-hoc network) with wifi, and sets up a TCP server and an HTTP server. A 3DS can connect to it and ask the webcode.

It creates a sort of “fake internet connection” for the 3DS so that the Gateway exploit can be launched in your 3DS with no internet connexion available.

Provided with the unit:

  1. Gateway 3DS Traveler 2.0 module with 5V/600mA USB output provided to recharge your 3DS or other USB device.
  2. 3 x AAA battery power module suited to plug in the Traveler to power it (with switch to power on/off), no batteries included. Economic: uses classic AAA batteries. Lasts a very long time, for thenths of use of the system.
  3. Cable with USB output to plug in the Traveler and 3DS special output to plug to your 3DS to recharge it from USB. You can recharge the 3DS (not for a long time with the AAA betteries, use the lithium module instead if you want a full recharge possibility) at 600mA (not at full capacity since 3DS consumes up to 900mA). Usefull to finish a game level and save if your 3DS power threatens to shut-off.

Can you use the Traveler?

The Traveler works for 3DS system version (sysnand) ranging from 4.0 to 9.2 (included) and it works only if you succeded in launching the Gateway card exploit in the regular way with internet. If so, then you can use the Traveler do use your 3Ds with Gateway card but without internet connexion. The Traveler only replaces the need of internet connexion.

Works for 3Ds and 3DS XL with system in the range 4.0 to 9.2. How to know your system version number: power on your 3Ds and click on the System settings. Then the version number will display.

A full protection system is contained inside to protect your lithium battery against:

  • Low voltage under discharge
  • High voltage over charge during the charging process
  • Over current consumption

  • LED to know if your system is charging correctly when plugged to a charging source, and a LED to indicate the end of charge.
  • With digital red LED display of the exact current voltage of your battery: you know where you go
  • Charging with micro-USB port, and a micro-USb to USB cable is provided so that you can recharge with a home adapter delivering 5V for smartphone or your PC port.

One thought on “Gateway 3DS Traveler 2.0 production unit

  1. Thanks for the fast delivery! The Traveler works like a charm and is super easy to use and set up (thanks to your great instruction manual and videos). The 3D printed case does look really cool as well! This will really come in handy when I’m on vacation.

    There’s no rxTools compatibility, but that shouldn’t be such a big deal for Gateway owners. 🙂

    I’m super happy with your device and thank you very much for all the hard work you put into your project!
