If you want to get the most of Pioneer's app mode then you need this item. Don't pay for the knock offs. Get this one--the real apple product.

Works Well

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It does what it needs to do. Seems like a quality cord, but I haven't had it long enough to prove otherwise. In general though, Apple's new lightning cords are well made, so I would trust that this one is also.
Cons:
Pricey

Lightning cable for IPhone

Written By Lightning cable, Texas on Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If you have an iPhone this is definitely a must buy. I have always just ran my iPhone through the standard USB cord but this puts that to shame. It makes controlling my pioneer deck when listening to music so much easier. A must buy, easy installation
Pros:
Makes controlling music on my pioneer deck so much easier than just using the standard USB cord
Cons:
Wish the end cord was a little longer for hiding the wires that plug into it but the ease of controlling my phone through the deck is by far worth it

Apple® Lightning™ to VGA Adapter

Written By Anonymous, Illinois on Monday, January 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It's cord is only 3 inches long. So that means you're going to have a lightning cable and a video cable hanging out of your dash going to this device, then 3" to your iPhone. Pretty unsightly. It's your only option if you need a VGA adaptor.
Pros:
Market cornered
Cons:
Market cornered.

VGA connector works as it should. Only downside is the lightning cable is too short for use with the pioneer head unit I purchased

Apple® Lightning™ to VGA Adapter

Written By Mustang Fan, Camas, WA on Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Product works fine but the short lead of lightning cable is a pain. I ran this back to the jockey box in the center console of my Mustang and all there is to connect the iPhone is a short little lead in the bottom of the box. VERY INCONVENIENT to work with. I tried to find an extension cable for the lightning cable to an iPhone 5 and Apple does not make one. Two "other" manufacturer cables off Amazon did not work. Now I can't find an extension and this is a pain to work with.
Pros:
Works fine, easy connections
Cons:
SHORT Lead
