Kaveo from Sacramento, Ca on 9/11/2016

When it works it's fine. Im not sure if I got a bad one before or not but I'm on my second one now. The first week using the first one I had was was great other than the fact Apple makes us jump through these ridiculous hoops to make iPhones compatible to non apple products. However after the first week it was very unreliable in terms of when it would connect to my 5s. In my experience charging cables for iPhone (Apple and off brand) tend to be picky after a few months of use but the second week I had this expensive cable it was almost worthless requiring me to set it up perfectly and very carefully connect and hold for 20 seconds and try not to move it at all as I let it go or it would lose connection and I have to unplug and start over usually taking me an hour or two to get it to work when i did get it to work, which was only 20% off the time.

Pros: It's the only way to mirror your iPhone to your tv without wifi

Cons: It's the only way to mirror your iPhone to your tv without wifi. As with other Apple cables is sensitive & tends to have problems where the cable meets the connection. Expensive. Must be gentle with it. A real pain. Short impractical cable length and design. Drains battery even with charging cable plugged in

Glen from White Hall, AR on 5/4/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After looking at several slightly cheaper alternatives from other sellers all with not so good reviews, I decided to purchase this one from Crutchfield mainly because of the stellar support that I've gotten from Crutchfield in the past. I bought it for my daughter to use in connecting her iPhone 6 to a JVC KW-V31BT that I also purchased from Crutchfield. Turns out I didn't need the support. Unlike the reviews I read on the alternatives, it was completely plug and play. As soon as I plugged it in, the radio recognized her phone and swapped the display to her phones screen. I have not tried connecting it to a TV or any other video display device.

Pros: Easy plug and play. No set up from phone or radio.

Cons:

Works great

Bob S from Las Vegas on 10/6/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works perfectly, shipping was super fast. A bit pricey in my opinion, but you get what you pay for. Have been using the older IPOD to HDMI adapter for years, and it's still working perfectly well, so I expect this will perform on par with the old one.

Pros: Simple, works perfectly

Cons: Price

Great - works as it should

Typical Apple Accessory

ReneN from Blacksburg, VA on 6/25/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Provides HDMI output (video) and USB output from your Apple device using a Lightning connector. Typical Apple brand accessory: high quality at a very high cost for what you get.

Pros: Quality, HDMI output.

Cons: Price. Length of male lightining connector from adaptor is too short to connect most phones without having the adaptor itself visible in a vehicle. This makes a VERY bulky installation (adaptor, HDMI, and lighting to USB cable are all exposed. If the male lighting cord was simply lengthened to 8" to 12", adaptor and bulky HDMI cable could all be hidden (and protected) in vehicle, making a much neater installation. Why not offer another adaptor with a longer lightning connector?

Does work

Eaton from Baltimore on 5/28/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It does work but my mirrored images are all dark even with all the bright setting turned up.... And sometimes my 5s is not detected or charge so I have to unplug it and plug it back in to work..... It is also time for apple to make an hdmi straight to lighting so I wouldn't have the stupid adapter junking up my car

Pros: Does what it is designed to do

Cons: Big in size and mirrored images are all darker on screen

Jose R from Sterling, VA on 10/29/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Without these cables I wouldn't be able to hook up my iPhone 5 to my Pioneer AVIC-Z150BH receiver. Makes it possible to play around with the apps on the phone, especially with the app radio by Pioneer.

Pros: Small and compact, easy to hide.

Cons: none.

I am using this product for the Pioneer AppRadio 3 in my car. However, this small product can be used for any Apple device for the television set. This product has several uses for video.

Pros: This product is small and can replace your VCR in terms of video.

Cons:

Pros: Mirrors your iPhone 5, just as described

Cons: A little on the pricey side for what it is but worth it.
