Our take on the Kenwood KCA-IP202 iPod® cable

by Ken Nail
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.

Kenwood's KCA-iP202 USB Direct Connection Cable connects your compatible iPod or iPhone® to select 2011-up Kenwood multimedia receivers with a front-panel USB port and front-panel 3.5mm audio/video input, so you can enjoy listening to your music when you're on the road, and viewing video content when parked. You'll control and charge your device while it's connected, too.

This cable currently works with Kenwood's DNX5180, DNX6180, DNX6980, DNX7180, KIV-701, and KIV-BT901 receivers. Warranty: 1 year.

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

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

Connections: The Kenwood KCA-iP202 cable has an iPod dock connector on one end, and a USB (type-A) connector and a right-angle 3.5mm AV connector on the other end.

  • iPod Dock Connector: The cable's iPod dock connector plugs into your compatible iPod or iPhone.
  • USB Connector: The cable's USB (type-A) connector plugs into your compatible Kenwood multimedia head unit's front-panel USB (type-A) port. The USB (type-A) connector handles the control and charging of  your iPod or iPhone, so you can navigate through your music and video files using your Kenwood head unit's controls and view song and movie information on its display monitor. The controls of your Kenwood head unit will be seamless when used with the optional KCA-iP202 cable and include metadata browsing as well as the ability to choose any iPod playback mode to suit your listening application.
  • 3.5mm AV Connector: The cable's right-angle 3.5mm AV connector plugs into your compatible Kenwood head unit's rear-panel 3.5mm audio/video input. The 3.5mm audio/video terminal transfers the music and video from your iPod/iPhone to your Kenwood multimedia head unit. By using the 3.5mm AV input, the music travels to the receiver as an analog signal, so you can even play the Digital-Rights-Protected files on your iPod/iPhone.

Note: The KCA-iP202 is a total of 6' long, from the iPod connector to the A/V minijack. The length of the cable from the iPod connector to the end of the USB connector is 3".

Great cable!! Even after having the plastic housing broken off, the cable continued to work..if positioned correctly.
Pros:
Crisp, clear sound. Sounds just the way it sounds in my Bose headphones..Even when it's broken.
Cons:
Plastic housing is sort of flimsy and will snap apart rather easily..

This cable is required if you want to play a video from an Ipod or Iphone on the Kenwood DDX370. The problem is the Iphone5 requires the lightning connector and this cable has the older 30-pin style connector. So another adapter is needed for an Iphone5.

Well, it works...kind of. It works fine with my iphone, but not my wife's. Same phone, different results. I have yet to try an ipod with video, but my hopes are not high. I bought from Crutchfield as opposed to a different retailer becuase I thought I would be getting the best quality, but not so much. Oh well, live and learn.

This cable works great. Charges my iPhone 4S and allows for control of the music and Pandora through the screen on the radio. It was long enough to go through my glove box and give me about 2.5 ft of slack for connecting. Still seems expensive for what it is, but worth it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Got this as an alternative to the Pioneer cable for my Pioneer head unit, as it was cheaper and it looked to be less bulky. The cable works perfectly well, but it is also very bulky. That is the only con, really.
Pros:
Seems to be good quality construction, works as intended. Connector to iPhone seems to fit well.
Cons:
Thick, bulky cable. I really don't understand why such thick insulation is needed...It is not that big a deal, though but it dropped it from 5 stars to 4.

Takes away other functions

Written By wishidaboughtsomethingelse, St. Louis, MO on Sunday, July 08, 2012
 
Once you hook up this cable you cannot update the software or load photos unless you unhook the cable. Too bad most of us run the cable inside the dash or into a console. Customer support suggest you take the radio out and unhook when you need to update the software. Wow, uninstall every time you need to update something.

It works, the length was good enough that I can hide my iPod in my F150 center console.
Pros:
works good.
Cons:
does the cable need to be as heavy duty as it is?

Purchased a cheaper one first and it was a piece of junk. Had to come back and buy a Kenwood cable. I wish I would have purchased the Kenwood to start with. I was just trying to save ten bucks!!!
Pros:
Great Quality and Sound!!
Cons:
This cable should be supplied with the Kenwood Head units!!

The adapter works perfectly with my DNX-5180 receiver, and I'm able to see videos as well as play my ipod classic 160gb with cover art on the receiver screen. A very sturdy and well manufactured product.

I have the kenwood DDX371.. With this cable will I be able to watch YouTube or Netflix on my deck through my phone? Thanks [ Alejandro  Mar 09, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: That cable will work with your receiver and allow you to stream video apps as long as the app manufacturer has designed it that way. Netflix will work and YouTube should work as well. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Staff  Mar 11, 2014 ]
Will this cable work on the dnx690hd? [ Raulfb19  Feb 26, 2014 ]

  • This cable will work with the DNX590HD. [ Jeff Staff  Feb 26, 2014 ]
Is this cable compatible with the Kenwood DDX470? That model is not listed as compatible with any of the Kenwood cables. Also, is the cable required for audio only playback? I don't see why I would ever need to play video through the unit. Would it be required for the album artwork, etc. to display on the unit? I'm a little confused, here... [ Matthew  Dec 17, 2013 ]

  • The Kenwood DDX470's rear-panel USB (type-A) port and rear-panel 3.5mm A/V AUX input allow you to connect select Apple iPod/iPhones using the Kenwood KCA-IP202 iPod cable (113IP202, sold separately). The unit's USB port handles the control, metadata display, and charging of your iPod/iPhone. You can navigate through your music and video files using the head unit's touchscreen controls and view song and movie info on its display, while your iPod/iPhone charges. The 3.5mm AV input handles audio and video transfer from your iPod/iPhone to the Kenwood DDX470. By using the Auxiliary input, the music travels to the receiver as an analog signal, so you can even play the Digital-Rights-Protected files you've stored on your iPod/iPhone. The unit's rear-panel AV input must be set to "iPod" in order to playback audio/video from your connected iPod/iPhone. Video can only be displayed while the vehicle is in park.

Will this cable work with an Android phone? [ Valerie  Dec 16, 2013 ]
1 answer
  • This cable is only designed for use with iPhones, iPods and iPads. [ Jeff Staff  Dec 16, 2013 ]
Does it matter if the small jack port cable is 2 or 3 channel? I need to run an extension cable from my visor down to unit but noticed it only had 2 channel [ Jeff  Dec 03, 2013 ]
1 answer
  • Thanks for your question Jeff. In general a 2 channel mini cable will only carry stereo audio. The 3rd channel on these cables is often video. A quick call or chat with an Advisor should help determine the best cable for your application. [ Jeff Staff  Dec 03, 2013 ]
