Our take on the Clarion CCUIPOD2 iPod® Interface Cable

by Zak Billmeier
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 CCUIPOD2 interface cable connects your iPod to select Clarion multimedia receivers. With just one cable between your iPod and your stereo, you'll get super-fast data transfer and full playback control. The adapter works with Clarion's VZ309, VZ409, VX409, MAX385VD, VRX485VD, and CMS1 receivers.

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