Our take on the Clarion CCA691 iPod® Cable

by Ken Nail
Clarion

Why would I need an iPod® adapter?

An iPod adapter allows you to connect your iPod to your car stereo, then access your playlists with your stereo's controls - a great idea for several reasons. One, you can scroll through your song titles on your stereo's larger display, instead of squinting down at your iPod. Two, you can route the adapter cable to your glove compartment or center console, so your iPod stays safely out of sight. Three, the iPod adapter keeps your iPod fully charged, so it's ready to rock when you leave your car. And last of all, some adapters bypass your iPod's internal digital-to-analog converter, using your stereo's superior DAC to turn your files back into music.

Clarion's CCA691 cable connects your iPod to their VRX375USB, VRX575USB, and VRX585USB DVD receivers. The cable allows you to listen to your iPod music files while driving and view your iPod video files when you're parked, while keeping your iPod charged.

You'll enjoy touchscreen control from your receiver over your iPod's music playback, while the receiver displays the title, genre, and artist information stored on your iPod. Video functions must be accessed from your iPod's controls. Warranty: 1 year.

Compatibility Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter.
