Typical Apple Accessory

Written By ReneN, Blacksburg, VA on Wednesday, June 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

Written By Eaton, Baltimore on Wednesday, May 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

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.
