Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am now on my third cable for my pxamg and after 4 months it is acting up again, sound quality is poor, keeps cutting out and freezing my ipod. Crutchfield is great, but Periperal has been horrible with their customer service. I wish I could just get the product to work as advertised.

Pros: None

Cons: Quality of product is horrible

iSimple 5-volt iPod® Cable

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got this cable to replace the aux cable in my wife's Lexus. The aux cable was starting to go bad. Works great. iPod playsbac through the car radio, charges and we have some control capability throught the car radio. There are no directions to tell you what control capabilities you will have through the car radio.

Pros: Easy install. Removed the aux cable and plugged on iPod cable.

Works for a year

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this cord to replace the 4-month-old cable that had came with my media gateway that had fallen apart. It worked for just over a year. I am currently having trouble with it charging my iPod. It worked great for the first 12 months I've had it, then started to act up right after the warranty ran out. Unfortunately, the iSimple gateway is the only way to connect my ipod to my car stereo short of dishing out $600+ to totally redo it. So it looks like I will be buying another. (Also, music plays MUCH quieter through this cord and gateway than through the radio.)

Works as promised!

It was actually just a replacement cable for the one my dog chewed up, but gave me the opportunity to update the firmware on the board as well, so my iPhone4 is now happy again.

Works well with IPhone 3G

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The plug on the cable is incompatible with older PXPD Peripheral interfaces which require a larger diameter plug. I was able to cut and solder the old plug on to the new cable and it then worked great for charging first and second generation IPOD's and new IPhone 3G's. Make sure you know what style plug you need.

Works Well with IPODTouch 2ndGen

Works as stated in charging the IPOD Touch 2nd Gen. Crutchfield is still the best place to order your electronic needs, unlike other sites they always know there products and send any and all help possible to satisfy the customer.

Works great with Iphone 3G

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was using the Peripheral ipod adapter in my truck with an Itouch first generation. I upgraded to an Iphone 3G, but phone would not charge with the old cable. I replaced it with the new Peripheral 5V cable and now it works just like it did with the Itouch. The phone says the phone functions will not work, but I didn't expect them to. When I get a call the music automatically mutes and I take the call just like normal. No need to unplug. When I hang up the music volume comes back up. Thats all the phone function that I need. I guess you could add bluetooth if you want hands free operation.
