Use this adapter cable to connect your iPod to Farenheit's TID-831NRB DVD receiver. You'll be able to browse your iPod's music library using the receiver's huge touchscreen, plus stash your player in a safe place and keep it charged while you drive. Warranty: 1 year.

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

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.

Display: The text information stored on your iPod is displayed on the head unit's touch screen, including song title, artist name, album title, elapsed and total track time.

Search Functions: Just like looking for songs using the iPod controls, search by playlist, artist, album, genre, or song to ensure easy access to each music file.

Connection: The IC-2 consists of a single 6' interface cable with an iPod dock connector on one end and a proprietary connector on the other. The cable is made to plug in between the dock connector port on your iPod and the iPod interface port on the rear panel of the TID-831NRBT head unit.
