Our take on the P.I.E iPod® Cable For Pioneer

by Ken Nail

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.

The PIO-USBAV interface cable lets you connect your iPod to a Pioneer AVIC-F700BT or AVIC-F900BT in-dash navigation receiver, so you can access your iPod with voice commands or with the receiver's touchscreen controls. Just connect the cable to your iPod, plug it into the receiver, and enjoy. Warranty: 1 year.

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

Features

Overview: You can directly control your music and videos from a compatible Pioneer or Clarion mutlimedia headunit's touchscreen with the PIE PIO/USB-AV Pioneer USB/AV Cable for iPod. The cable connects your iPod to the Pioneer headunit via USB for control and to the AV1 input of the radio for audio (RCA) and video (composite).

Note: The PIE PIO/USB-AV Pioneer USB/AV Cable for iPod is equivalent to the CD-IU230V Pioneer/iPod connector cable.

iPod Compatibility: The PIE PIO/USB-AV Pioneer USB/AV Cable for iPod is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model functions when connected to a compatible Pioneer multimedia headunit (as of Dec. 2009):

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the headunit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until an newer software update is available.
