Retrosound USB-PORT USB/Aux extension cable

Mount the dual input plug in your dash or some other convenient location.

No more dangling cords

Enjoying digital music in an analog car presents some challenges, but RetroSound specializes in finding clever solutions. This innovative accessory makes it easier than ever to play music from your iPhone®, Android™, or other music player in your classic vehicle, plus you won't have to look at that exposed, dangling cord anymore.

With built-in USB and AUX inputs, this 54" extension cord allows you to create an easily accessible location to plug in your devices. Connect the cord to the rear inputs on your RetroSound receiver, then mount the other end of the adapter in the cigarette lighter hole, in the glove box, or under the dash in your vehicle. Whichever option you choose, you'll enjoy the clean look of your dash and the clear sound of your music. 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.

Installed the product and had trouble with the usb connection quality after 1 hour in the car. Went with the jbl and could not be happier with their quality.

Pros: None

Works like a champ and is really simple to get hooked up. I spent more time looking for the exact spot I wanted to mount it than I did getting it connected.

RetroSound USB-PORT

Written by: Owner_Installer from Georgia on May 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased the AUX/USB port and installed it in the center console where the 12V power adapter was originally. Had just enough wire to reach the radio. Only downside was the diameter for the new port was slightly smaller than the power adapter. It fits and stays inserted, but moves around in the original hole.

Pros: Good Product

Cons: Diameter of product smaller than power adapter.

Eliminates Dongles

Written by: V from New Jersey on May 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great product to add an OEM look to the dash. Instead of having a dongle hanging somewhere, this plugs into the back of your aftermarket head unit and then installs into your dash either with a hole you cut yourself, or by removing the "guts" of a power port and installing it there. Not too difficult. I installed this one for my rear seat passengers by cutting a hole into the rear of the center console and running the wire under the console into the back of the head unit. I also installed the PAC-USB wire in the dash for the driver and passenger in the front. It works as a sync cable, an AUX port, and a USB charger.

Pros: Gives an OEM look to the dash. Eliminates dongles. (I personally hate cord-clutter) Charge and sync to Carplay at the same time.

Cons: None.

RetroSound USB-PORT

Written by: GaryS from Illinois on March 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased and installed via BestBuy with the Pioneer AVH-X2700BS to access these ports from the rear of the head unit.

Pros: Works great, looks good and allowed me access to auxiliary port during the calibration of my audio system with a DENON 3.5 mm microphone. I otherwise would not have been able to do so after the head unit was installed due to the rear port access point. Now, if and when, I upgrade with a subwoofer, the calibration will be a snap.

Cons: The rubber cap, as others have noted, is of very poor quality and will eventually fail. Give it a couple of days, as it is flimsy and difficult to close.

Fits in the 12 power outlet hole

Written by: Horsemanwill from Kansas on March 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This item fits perfectly into the 12v power outlet in the dash area of the 2009 dodge challenger. I plan on using it with the P99rs that will be going into my dash.

Pros: excellent fit

Cons:

Works perfect

Works great - used it in replacement to a 12v socket already in my console!

USB-Aux plug

Written by: Todd F from Colorado on January 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Exactly what I was looking for. It looks like a factory installed piece. I installed it in the center console bin next to the factory aux input. Looks way better than wires hanging out of the dash. The hard part of the install was learning how the console comes apart without breaking the clips.

Pros: Looks like a factory install

Cons: none

RetroSound USB-Port a solid product

Written by: FirstTimeInstaller from San Jose, CA on June 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall a solid product and easy to install. However, the dust cover is unexciting. It is made of rubber and works well but does not go with the rest of the trim in the car. Needed to drill a 7/8 inch hole in the dashboard to install. A note to this effect would have been good.

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: Unexciting dust cover.

Ingenious!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you are like me and wanted to take advantage of the USB and AUX ports in the back of you touchscreen head unit this is the perfect solution. The unit is perfectly designed to replace an unused in dash lighter or power port.

Pros: 2 in 1 design. Great product for the price.

Cons: None.

Great buy

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well worth the money. I had two charging ports on my dash, I replaced one of them with this. Now I don't have to worry about loosing or breaking those cheap ones from the gas station. I have it plugged into the back of the head unit so I don't have to worry about extra wires in the glove box.

Pros: Easy install

Cons: None

Great Product

Cons: None Connetions Are Good And Product Works Great.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

to add to my daughters Camaro [ Robert  Jan 05, 2016 ]

1 question already asked

I am pretty sure it cannot. mono has 2 zones, stereo has 3 zones, and video has 4 zones on the plug. This one his a stereo plug. One zone between the black bands of insulation is negative. Everything is grounded through this one. mono sends the hot through one spot to the device and returns to ground or negative. Stereo sends left and right hot signals. And video sends video, left and right hot signals and they all return through ground. [ Mark  Dec 16, 2015 ]
The ken wood requires both the USB and the 3.5mm port to support an iPad or iPod. Don't have an iPhone so cannot comment there. If iPad is important then the Bluetooth connection can be used. Then the 3.5mm port can be used for video, though I have not tried that. However it is only two connections, right and left. So if video requires 3 connections then that is out. [ Raymond  Dec 21, 2014 ]
I am sorry i can't answer this yet i have not hooked it up yet [ TIMOTHY J  Dec 21, 2014 ]
It would depend on your head unit. The set up for the cable is designed to pass audio. For my pioneer head unit I can use Hdmi input or rca jacks. Be careful though. I found that the jacks are very loose. I had to slightly bend the lip to hold the cables that I plug up to it. Works great otherwise. [ KEVIN  Dec 21, 2014 ]
It's a standard 3.5mm extension cord so it should work as well as any other one. I use mine for audio only and works great. High quality products. [ Joseph  Dec 21, 2014 ]
No Mike... just audio [ ALEX  Dec 21, 2014 ]
