Our take on the JVC KS-U61 MicroUSB to HDMI Cable

by Dave Delamere

Hook up your Android

JVC's KS-U61 cable connects your Android phone to the HDMI input on compatible JVC KW-V30BT and KW-V50BT receivers. The HDMI connector on this 6.5-foot cable plugs into the rear input on your JVC receiver, while the 5-pin connector plugs into your Android. The HDMI connection allows the JVC receiver to display your smartphone's apps. Warranty: 1 year.

Compatibility note: Be sure to check "Details" for compatible Android models.

The salesman sent me this cable because the orginal salesman that sold me the car radio said it would hook up to my Sirius satellite radio with out using my phone . I still cannot use Sirius because there is no hdmi connector on the unit . I have stuck 600 into a radio that does everything that my last one did. Salesmen should take a class on what they're selling!!
Didn't work with stereo

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The HDMI to MicroUSB cable is perfect.. just keep in mind, that if you are a Samsung phone, you'll need an extra adapter from Samsung. For some reason they use a different pin layout.
perfect length, and nice high quality.
Samsung needs an extra adapter (not the cable's fault)

Does not work as advertised.
Crutchfield response on Tuesday, May 27, 2014
This is likely an issue with phone compatibility. In particular, certain models of Galaxy phones (the S3, S4, and Note II) require a 5-pin to 11-pin adapter (as stated on our website). Our tech support team is following up with the customer.
