Kenwood MHL to DDX9702s

Written By Curtis, California on Monday, November 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a Nexus 5. I upgrade my car stereo to use Android Auto and MHL to mirror my screen when I am parked and just hanging out. So I thought I would try with what I have and and it didn't work. I have an extension from the back of the radio to my counsel so I can get to it easy. I used my slim port and didn't work with Kenwood. So I read some more and found out they tell you that you need to use their cable only and no extensions. So I ordered this cable and when I received it I had to remove my stereo and test it. Well it worked the same as it did with the extension and slimport. Well not the same. the extension and slimport worked better. I didn't get a display with either. But the extension and slimport I was able to moved a pointer from the stereo unit to the phone. I have a Yamaha home receiver that works perfect with my Nexus and MHL-slimport but not with the Kenwood MHL cable. So I can't use this cable with anything in my house.

Pros: None for me. I can say if you have a Nexus 5 with any OS version it will not work on the Kenwood DDX9702s. If you are using another phone and stereo, you may have better luck.

Cons: Would be nice if they tell you why their mhl is not the same as others and if it is why you must use theirs. No wiring diagram.

Don't get this.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Didn't do anything but cost me money. All of the documentation I could find says it's the cable I need to connect my Galaxy Note 4 to my Jensen VX7022. It didn't work. Looks like I need a 5-pin to 11-pin adapter, but even then it still may not work. I am considering seeing if I can make a return.

Pros: It's black and looks like a fancy cable.

Cons: Doesn't work.

Good product

Good cable. Does what is advertised

Worthless purchase

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Do not buy

Pros: Seems to be well made

Cons: The whole MHL thing is a crock. What is new technology with car audio is already being discontinued by phone manufacturers. They should include the 5 pin to 11 pin adapter for Samsung products.

Does not work with some samsung phones

Written By Jason123, Pennsylvania on Saturday, October 17, 2015

Gave it a 3 for the price. Do the research on your phone before buying this. Some samsung phones use an 11 pin micro usb rather than the standard 5 pin. Also, my kenwood dnx692 only puts out 0.9 amps through the html port. This is not enough to charge my note 4. I had to buy a cable from another retailer that dovetails to a usb port that I needed to source and then wire in behind the stereo. Worst part is tearing the dash apart twice. Not so much the cables fault, but there is no documentation on the site that tells you this stuff.

Pros: Well made cable.

Cons: No documentation on the Crutchfield site. Very expensive - multiple times the price of other sites.

May need an adapter

Written By Dane H, Kansas on Friday, September 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great.... with an adapter. Only reason I give it 4 stars is because of the need for an additional adapter for my Note 4. I failed to read the reviews before purchase & had Crutchfield's Technical Support, which was great, inform me of the needed adapter.

Pros: Works great!

Cons: The need for an additional adapter with newer Samsung phones.

Works with my HTC One m7

Written By Sione, San Jose, CA on Wednesday, February 04, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works with the Verizon HTC One m7 on my Kenwood DNX891HD and it charges my phone at the same time which is a big plus.

Pros: I get to watch youtube and NetFlix now from my phone on my Kenwood deck.

you might need more...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Cable works great. I have a NOTE 4 (and I believe Note 3 will have the same issue) you need a 5 pin to 11 pin adapter. I bought one online. The cable will not work with a samsung note 4 without this adapter. with works perfectly. for the head unit I have a Kenwood DDX8901HD. this is for using the MHL feature. hope this helps save someone some time. but the cable itself is perfect....

Pros: not much to screw up...unless they come in an 11 pin version

Cons: only works with the samsung note 4 (and I believe note 3) with a 5 pin to 11 pin adapter.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the second one I purchased from Crutchfield. The 1st on is hooked into my new Kenwood 7" display radio and it worked so well I thought I would try it with my 65" LCD flat screen. Well it's pretty cool looking at the pics taken with my Galaxy S5 through a 65" screen. Works flawlessly thru my Onkyo receiver hdmi input then into the tv. Also checked out iheart radio from my Galaxy, with this connection, sound through my 9.2 surround is system awesome and reading the lyrics for the song was pretty darn easy on 65 inches of screen.

Pros: Harness is six feet in length

Cons: Some phones require an adaptor to function properly. Samsung HDTV Adapter TIP (5 to 11 Pin Converter) EPL-FU10BEBSTD for Galaxy

does the job...ish

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.

Cons: Needed adapter to function correctly with my phone.
