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.

Cable review

Written By Dseveing, Great falls, Mt on Thursday, March 15, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this cable because I wanted to use the new iPhone 4 as my source for music. I wasn't sure if the older technology would be compatible with the newer, so I was worried. It ended up working perfectly as I hoped.
