Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
First off if you have a newer phone with the micro usb most likely you'll need a 5-pin to 11-pin adapter in order to use this cable. That being said once i got that this thing works as advertised but it would be nice if they sold these as 11-pin straight out of the box or at least make it an option when ordering. i have a Samsung galaxy note 3 btw. Also if i had to do it over again i would just go with a regular hdmi cable and then buy whatever adapter was needed to fit my phone as it leaves you with more options.
Needed adapter to function correctly with my phone.

Can anyone confirm this works with the Samsung Galaxy S$ WITHOUT the adapter tip? The samsung adapter tip isnt available and online retailers are riddled with fakes [ Andrew  May 27, 2014 ]

  • My Note 3 needed a 5 pin to 11 pin adapter, no display without it. You can also only view your phone display, no controlling your phone from Kenwood head unit. S4 and up probably need adapter also. [ KEVIN   May 28, 2014 ]
  • Do not buy this wire buy the Samsung adapter better [ Ernesto   May 28, 2014 ]
  • Thanks .Everything okay. [ artur   May 28, 2014 ]
