Can't find your exact car?

Connect your iPod to the Rosen navigation receiver in your General Motors vehicle with the DP-GM0718 iPod cable, and enjoy in-dash control over your playlists. One end connects to the XM port on the back of the Rosen receiver, and you can route the other end to your center console, glove box, or any other convenient location. Just plug your iPod into the cable and you're connected.

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.

This cable is compatible with Rosen in-dash navigation receivers built for GM vehicles. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter. This harness replaces the XM Radio harness that's included with your Rosen receiver, so you'll lose your factory XM tuner.

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.
