Can't find your exact car?

Connect an iPod and a SIRIUS satellite radio tuner to your Rosen navigation receiver with the DP-1053 iPod cable, and enjoy in-dash control over your iPod's music, plus the stellar variety of satellite radio. One end of the harness connects to a port on the back of the receiver, and the other provides two connections, one for your iPod, and another for a hideaway satellite radio tuner.

Plug in your iPod and you'll be able to scroll through all your playlists, albums, artists, genres, and composers without having to fumble with the iPod's controls. Song titles and other file information show up right on the display, so it's easy to find the music you want. Your iPod's battery will charge while it's connected, too.

Connect the harness to a SIRIUS SC-C1 satellite radio tuner (not included) and you'll enjoy SIRIUS|XM's unparalleled offerings in music, news, sports, and talk, with 18 preset channels just a touch away on your Rosen receiver's controls.

This cable is compatible with all Rosen in-dash navigation receivers, with the exception of Rosen GM-replacement stereos. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: SIRIUS SC-C1 satellite radio tuner and subscription required for satellite radio reception.

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

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.
