Our take on the Dual IPC2M iPod® Control Interface

by Robert Ferency-Viars
Dual

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.

This IPC2M interface cable lets you add iPod control to select Dual CD receivers, so you get the best possible sound from your music library. Once connected, you use the stereo's controls to manage just about every playback function — jump between artists, albums, and playlists at the push of a button. Album, artist, and song information from your iPod will show up on the radio's display, too.

This 79" adapter works with all dockable iPods and charges the iPod's battery while it's connected. Warranty: 30 days.

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

Features

Overview: The IPC2M is an iPod/iPhone interface cable specifically for use with the Dual XDMA6700, XDMA6855, and XDMA7715. It is also included in the box with the XDMA690.

Note: When connecting the iPhone to this adapter a message on the phone will appear that reads - "not an approved device", just click "OK" and it will work correctly just like all other compatible iPods. This interface cable will not charge the iPhone 3G, iPod touch (2nd generation), or iPod nano (4th generation) without the Scosche passPORT (142IFWA).

Connectors: The IPC2M has a standard iPod dock connector on one end, and a proprietary 10-pin connector on the other end.

Functionality: When connected to a compatible Dual receiver and compatible iPod, the cable provides the following functionality:

  • Command and control of all dock connector-equipped iPods
  • Menu driven access for easy control
  • Displays all information, including playlists, artists, albums, and songs
