Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
JamLink CAR: The JamLink Car provides connectivity for the Apple iPod,
iPhone, or iPad (with Lightning-connector) to any factory or aftermarket audio
system with an Aux input. You'll be able to listen to audio from stored music,
music apps, and navigation apps on your compatible Apple device through your
factory or aftermarket car stereo system; all while charging your device.
Connections: The JamLink Car is equipped with a 6' length Apple Lightning-connector
cable to dock your Apple iPod nano (7th gen), iPod touch (5th gen), iPhone
(5/5C/5S), or iPad (4/mini/air) with Lightning-connector. On the other end is an
18" stereo RCA cable which plugs into your factory or aftermarket radio's
Aux input. Many factory and aftermarket radios only have a 3.5mm Aux input,
which will require a RCA-to-minijack adapter (sold separately). There is also an
18" power/ground wire which needs to be hardwired to your vehicle's electrical
Note: Some factory and aftermarket radios do not come with an auxiliary
input (make sure your head unit has an Aux input).
Audio Playback: The audio from the attached Apple Lightning connector
device will pass through the JamLink Car into the radio's auxiliary audio input;
select the Aux input on your radio. You'll be able to listen to audio from
stored music, music apps, navigation apps, and other applications on your Apple
device through your factory or aftermarket audio system.
2.4 Amp Charging: The JamLink Car will charge the battery of your
Apple iPod nano (7th gen), iPod touch (5th gen), iPhone (5/5C/5S), or iPad
