Our take on the Kenwood KCA-iP100 iPod® Connection Cable

by Robert Ferency-Viars
Kenwood

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.

Leave your iPod cable safe at home. Kenwood's KCA-iP100 iPod cable is just like the cable that came with your iPod, and you can use it to connect your iPod to any 2008-up Kenwood car stereo that features direct iPod control via USB input. Warranty: 1 year.

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

Work great but not needed

Written By Mark, Jacksonville, Fl on Thursday, October 23, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This cable works as expected but it's not needed. You can use a standard iPod cable with the Kenwood receiver get the same results. Unless you don't have an extra cable I don't know why you would purchase this one.

Kenwood KCA-iP100 iPod® Connection Cable

Written By Aaron, Indianapolis on Thursday, June 26, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This cable works well. It is sturdy but still flexable enough to curl up in my
glove box. I use it with a KDC-X692.
