Our take on the Kenwood CA-U1EX

by Ken Nail

If you want to increase the reach of your USB input, Kenwood's CA-U1EX USB extension cable fits the bill. The kit includes a USB-to-USB cable, a USB-to-mini-USB cable, and mounting kits. Plug either cable into your Kenwood receiver's front or rear USB input, and you'll have an extra 39 inches of cable to play with.

If you want to spiff up your installation, you can use the flush-mount or under-dash mount kits to install a permanent USB input in your car. Kenwood includes all the hardware you'll need for the installation.


  • includes a 1-meter USB to USB cable and 1-meter USB to mini-USB cable
  • under-dash and flush-mount kits included
  • compatible with all Kenwood receivers featuring front or rear USB inputs
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Very nice kit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought this to extend the USB port of my App Radio 3 so when I have to do firmware updates on it, the port is readily accessible. I like the inclusion of both types of mounts and everything you need to make a USB port look nice and clean installed.
The kit has everything you need to make an accessible USB port
It came with a USB to USB mini cable, I didn't have a use for this and think that it shouldn't be part of the kit.
