Solved my Pioneer problem

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

In bought this to replace the factory iPod cable that was connected to my AVIC-920BT unit. The cable that came with the unit was made so the audio portion split into a 1/8" stereo jack that was connected male/female half way up the cable; the audio in one channel was not reliable due to the 1/8" jack male/female connection. I replaced it with this genuine new Pioneer cable bought from Crutchfield. One note: Pioneer changed/improved the design of this newer cable by eliminating the 1/8" male/female connector half way up the cable. The USB side still has a male/female connection, and the cable is for the earlier 30-pin iPods & phones (I'm still rockin' an iPod video and iPhone 4S). I had to remove my head unit to properly install the cord @ the back of the unit, but my iPod is back in business! Thanks Crutchfield for the quick service and fantastic pricing.

Pros: Genuine Pioneer cable, updated and improved design, great price.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works as advertised, I was really disapointed that I had to purchase this product just to add USB to the deck. I don't know why Pioneer is determined to make you spend an extra $50 dollars just so they can promote Apple products. In order to have a USB input I had to get the whole Ipod setup. I don't own an ipod, and I don't ever plan on getting one.

Pros: Works to play my thumb drives

Cons: Had to get the Ipod setup just to play a thumb drive. Not everyone owns Apple products, so why force them to spend extra money for useless products?

This product allowed my iPod Touch to connect with my Pioneer head unit with no problems at all. It is plug and play. You can change the albums, songs, artist, etc from the screen of the head unit. iPod Touch is out of sight, out of mind.

1 question already asked

If you want to use the app functionality you do have to buy the cable. I did this with an iPhone 4s and it is worth it for the added capability. [ BRIAN  May 21, 2014 ]
No it will not. Even if you use the apple approved 30 pin to lightning adapter, all you can do is charge your phone and use it in Bluetooth. I tried that one myself when I went from a 4S to a 5S. Yes it kind of sucks to have to buy another lightning cable and digital video adapter and an hdmi cable, but in the long run you'll be happy you did it. Cost me 30 bucks for the adapter, 6 bucks for the lightning cable, and 3 bucks for an hdmi cable. I talked to a pioneer rep and he informed me that the apps are run through the phone and the video out is what displays the apps on the radio. Audio is strictly Bluetooth. Save yourself some dough and don't buy the pioneer kit, just plug the lightning cable in to your USB port on the radio. [ CHRIS  May 21, 2014 ]
This will work with your iPhone 5s. You just have to get the 30 pin to lightning conversion cable. I have a iPhone 5s and that is what I did and it works. [ FREDERICK  May 21, 2014 ]
It works with a lightning connector...U should be fine... [ Eric  May 21, 2014 ]
No, the 5s requires the USB adapter. This is only for 4 and 4s, or iPods. [ JEREMIAH  May 21, 2014 ]
