PAC's IC-PIOUSBAV cable lets you connect your iPod to select Pioneer navigation receivers. Once connected, you can use the touchscreen controls on the Pioneer receiver to access the music and videos on your iPod or iPhone. Just connect the cable to your Apple device, plug the USB and composite RCA connectors into the back of the Pioneer, and enjoy. Warranty: 1 year.

Compatibility Note: This adapter will only work with the Pioneer AVIC-F700BT, AVIC-X710BT, AVIC-F900BT, AVIC-X910BT, and AVIC-F90BT models.

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.
