Can't find your exact car?

The CCUIPOD3 cable connects your iPod or iPhone to the Clarion VZ300 DVD receiver. With just one cable between your iPod and your stereo, you'll get super-fast data transfer and full playback control.

You'll be able to operate your iPod from the stereo's controls with complete command over playback features like start/stop, forward/reverse, and shuffle/repeat. You'll enjoy access to all your playlists and videos, with track and artist information showing up on the stereo's display. You'll also be able to search through audio and video content by category. Your iPod even recharges while it's connected.

Give one of our Advisors a call at 1-888-955-6000, or check "Details" tab for a list of compatible iPods. Warranty: 1 year.

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.

Product Research


Overview: The Clarion CCUIPOD3 iPod connector cable allows the Clarion VZ300 to connect to your iPod or iPhone via the headunit's rear-panel proprietary iPod connector port. Using the CCUIPOD3 cable, the VZ300 supports audio/video playback, control, information display, and charging of select iPods and iPhones. You can search your iPod/iPhone's music and video content by category; content is then listed alphabetically. Your iPod's controls will be locked during audio playback; to view photos or videos, you must use the iPod's click-wheel or touchscreen. Video can only be displayed while the vehicle is in park (the unit will display "Audio Only" when your vehicle is in motion). The Clarion VZ300 is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model features when connected to the CCUIPOD3 iPod connector cable (as of March 2010):

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the headunit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until an newer software update is available.
