PAC USB Extension Cable

Overview

Our take on the PAC USB Extension Cable

So you've got a fantastic new car stereo in your dash, but your iPod cable won't reach from the iPod in your center console to its rear USB input. This PAC 6-ft. extension cable features female and male USB ends, and includes a mounting bracket for a permanent installation, so you can set up a convenient spot for plugging in your iPod or thumb drive.

So you've got a fantastic new car stereo in your dash, but your iPod cable won't reach from the iPod in your center console to its rear USB input. This PAC 6-ft. extension cable features female and male USB ends, and includes a mounting bracket for a permanent installation, so you can set up a convenient spot for plugging in your iPod or thumb drive.

The cable's female USB end provides a flush-mount design for permanent installation — simply drill a hole into the spot where you'd like to connect your USB devices, then snap in the end of the cable for a factory look. If you'd rather not drill a hole, just snap that end of the cable into the included mounting bracket, then place the bracket in a good place for quick access to your USB devices. Warranty: 1 year.

Easily installed in the center console with a flush mount- has a "factory installed" appearance. Connects to new receiver with Apple Car Play and works great.

What's in the Box:

  • 6' USB extension cable (with a male USB type-A connector on one end and a female USB type-A connector on other end)

DScotland1 from Massachusetts on 8/10/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Decent cable, worked for the application I was using it for. Would like to see the notch a little bigger as i drilled a hole in my console for a cleaner look and ended up gluing it in place as it would rotate.

Pros: Useful cable.

Cons: A bigger notch would be better.

Easy Install that Adds a Custom Look

JeffP from Texas on 8/4/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased this along with a Pioneer MVH-X560BT. I knew that I would want to utilize the USB feature of the receiver without having a random cord dangling about. This was perfect. Drilled a hole in the console next the cigarette lighter, then the PAC USB Extension Cable popped right in with a snug and custom look. Looks like the vehicle was designed with this USB plug. Very easy to install, takes less than 3 minutes.

Pros: Easy Install. Flawless Custom Look. Adds easy access to USB. Even works as a charging port.

Cons: None!

Jeff C from Winston-Salem, NC on 6/18/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product is very helpful in extending the rear located USB port on the back of your head unit to a more convinent location in your vehicle. The mounting bracket allow the end of the cable to be secured to the interior of the vehicle for a nice clean finish. I would highly recommend this cable for anyone who has a rear located USB port on their head unit.

Pros: Length of the cable and mounting bracket.

Cons: None at this point.

V from New Jersey on 5/12/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I hate having cords hanging all over my car. This installed easily into an unused power port in my dash. Looks factory installed. The hardest part was getting the "guts" out of the port so I could install this. Works perfectly and allows me to charge my iPhone and use carplay at the same time.

Pros: Seamless OEM look. Charge and sync.

Cons: None.

DanR from Billings, Mt on 9/13/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great add on that gives you the option to mount with a pod or remove the pod and drill a hole to mount in almost any location, has locator tang to prevent rotation in this instance.

Pros: Works great and offers an OEM look

Cons: Would be nice to have different cable lengths as it is a bit much when mounting right beside the deck.

Works well.

Faust from Los Osos on 9/8/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Work's very well with almost every USB drive I have used (I.E. thumbdrives), and my Samsung Note 3 which I mainly bought it for., The USB dash connector is a simple, but is a smart idea.

Pros: Very convenient, and work's great!,

DonaldB from Greenwood, IN on 8/30/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered the USB to connect my iPod Classic and iPhone to a Kenwood DDX371 DVD player. This included more than enough cable to run from the back of the unit to just about anywhere on or under the dash. The over molded USB port has a bezel that can be mounted to the dash. The cable is extra heavy duty and probably more than is really needed. Still, the cost was not that much.

Pros: Plenty of cable to run from the rear of the radio.

Cons: Probably more than really needed.

Pros: Solid Product.

A worthy USB accessory

Jason from Denver, CO on 6/9/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A worthwhile investment! This allowed me to get my USB plug nicely finished and installed in the center console/armrest unit. If you have an older car and want you phone to be able to be plugged in out of sight, this is the perfect addition to you system.

Pros: Cord length and resulting options for placement

Cons: None

BP from Attleboro, MA on 5/21/2014

I was able to have a very clean and pro looking install by just drilling a 3/4" hole inside the console glove box, running the wire under the console to the head.

Pros: simple product with options for install and plenty of wire.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you want a nice custom panel install of a USB port for your car, this cable fills the bill. In my install I passed on the supplied mounting bracket and simply drilled a whole in a console panel......

Pros: Easy install

Cons: none

Nice and sleek

Newt from Fruit Heights, UT on 3/1/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy and smile to install. I drilled a hole next to the cigarette lighter and did not use the mounting hardware it came with. Looks like it was a factory installation. Works great and looks just as good.

Pros: Simple installation.

Cons: Only one I would have is with the mounting hardware. But I didn't use it so I have none.

Worked for me!

Very Handy

Mike from Forney, TX on 12/7/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very handy to have. I use a thumb drive for music and my Miata didn't have one. When I upgraded the head unit I got one on the unit front but installed this one down low on my dash hidden away. This way no thumb drive hanging out the front of my stereo always.

Pros: Easy install. I did not use the included bracket, I actually drilled a hole in the lower trim panel of my center console. It looks like a factory install.

Cons:

PAC USB extension cable.

Mike from Norther California on 12/3/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is a great Idea, but the USB connection was so tight to plug an Ipod or any USB connection into it, I thought that I was going to break the Ipod Cable.

Pros: Great Idea, Very convenient.

Rodman from Reno NV on 10/16/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked well for me under my control panel in my 03 Newbeetle. My glove box is not convenient for me so this option was just what I needed. The sticky did not hold well when put the bracket under the control panel. It comes with two sets of screws. One set is self tapping and the other you should pre drill first. The cable is stiff but pliable enough to bend where you want it with plenty of length. Professional looking when using the bracket.

Pros: Nice and sturdy with a professional look. Easy install with the bracket.

Cons: None

PAC USB Extension Cable

Mike from Sanger, CA on 9/5/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed this cable at the same time that I was installing my new CD reciever. So it was a breeze to just plug and play. Finding the best location on my console to install was the hardiest part, since I wanted to have that flush look when in use.

Pros: Works as expected. Sturdy. An helped to add a USB port to the front of my dash console for easy access.

Cons: With anyone that will be installing the cable without the included base, as to give it the flush look- you'll find yourself wondering whats the best size of hole needed to be cut out so that the cable with fit and snap in perfectly the first time. I made the hole a little too big but fixed it by hot gluing the cable to the inside of my mounting fixture. Would be nice to of had a simple paper card cutout of the hole to trace or just to of had the actual diameter specs to cut out the hole out-

As advertised

MikeS from Auburn, AL on 8/14/2013

This is a great product to extend the rear USB port of aftermarket receivers. I needed to get my port accessible from the center console, and this was the answer.

Pros: easy integration (plug-and-play)

Cons:

It is what you'd expect

MahaRex from Fort Walton Beach, FL on 8/4/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This device is exactly what you'd expect; a USB extension cable with multiple mounting options. I bought this with an Alpine INE-S920HD not realizing that the unit came with a USB cable already. BUT, this cable is longer, and since I'm installing a system in my 2011 WRX Limited, and trying to re-use the factory USB plug built into the center console, I'm glad I have an extra cable and some additional options to get it installed in a way that looks stock.

Pros: Multiple mounting options

Cons:

Nice add-on

Don from Ann Arbor, MI on 7/28/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Gave me a nice option to plug the USB stick in the console. Good add-on to the new stereo

Replaced OEM Honda Ridgeline Radio with Pioneer DEH-P8400BH

e_piph_a_ny from Los Angeles, CA on 7/6/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quality material and construction. I shaved the top and bottom to fit the cubby below the radio. Looks OEM. Nice hide-a-way from the bad guys! Four stars based on return on investment.

Pros: So easy to assemble, a caveman can do it. Perfect complement to the rear USB interface of the Pioneer.

Cons: Price is a little stiff. After all, this is just a USB extension cable, not rocket science.

What's not to like?

JonJ from Cincinnati, OH on 7/6/2013

James1 from Hiram, GA on 6/26/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Exactly what I needed! This allowed me to extend the USB rear output for my new Kenwood unit and mount the connection where I wanted!

Pros: High quality cord and good grade of plastic in the mount. This was important because I had to fish the wire under glued carpet below the console of my truck. Also no problems with the connection like some other low grade USB cords have.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Nice addition

JamesC from Rougemont, NC on 6/2/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This allowed me to mount my USB connection on the dash panel on a 08 Dodge Ram 2500 easily. The cable was a little long but no issues. I connected this cable to the factory cable that came with the head unit so I could unplug easily if I needed to remove the front panel for any reason. Excellent product.

Pros: Easy mounting options

Cons: Could use some instructions on which hole size to drill for mounting

Makes for a clean install, just didn't need/use it

JustMe from Columbus, OH on 5/23/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

very nice, but didn't find the need to use it. Length on the wires from the head unit was enough for what I needed

Pros: can make for a sweet install.

Cons: Odds are you won't need it.

USB inside the extra pocket in after market mount

Pagarodog from Arlington, MA on 5/15/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My wife suggested mounting it inside the back of the pocket that removing my double DIN factory chassis left. This works GREAT! Now we can charge our cell phones and have a place to hold them. With the Apple iPod or iPhone 5 cable or (my) Micro USB cable from the phone. I can keep the wire securely connected yet out of the way.

Pros: Works great. Nice tight fit.

Cons: The cable is pretty long (for my ultra short needs), but nothing a wire tie cannot fix.

Excellent!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great product to add to any aftermarket radio with usb ports in the rear. I bought it also for flush mount and I am very pleased with the finished product. Installed in my gmc Sierra crew cab truck in dash under a/c panel and it looks great.

Pros: Two options for mounting, I suggest flush mount if you have space. Black Colorado will match most interiors.

Cons: The flush mount could be a bit tighter fit and you may have to add trim glue or silicone to tighten the fit, minor though.

Great Flush Mount

Chappy from Brownsburg, IN on 6/22/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just installed this in my wife's `06 Jeep Liberty. It does what it's supposed to do and works very well. The ability to flush mount the cylinder is what prompted me to purchase this over other options. I was not disappointed.

I plan to wire this to inside the center console of my 4Runner, next to the factory stereo's aux port (which I plan to re-use), so that I can have a nice out-of-sight place to plug in a USB drive with all of my music. [ Patrick  Dec 14, 2015 ]

I don't know about Apple Carplay since I don't use that but I use my Iphone 6S attached via USB and the music and pandora work with no problems and it shows the album art on the screen so it should work. I've used Amazon music too, but that doesn't show any artwork, but the music plays just fine. [ Kristopher  Apr 22, 2016 ]
Its just an extension cable.So it doesn't matter. The issue that you are having is either the cable you have is no good or the USB port you are connecting it to is not putting out the proper amperage for your apple device. Any USB extension cord would not have an effect on this that I know of. [ Michael  Apr 20, 2016 ]
I am not sure if this will help or not, but I used this cable with a Kenwood receiver and my iPhone 5s works with it. I'm able to charge my phone with it and the kenwood head unit is able to minimally control the iPhone 5s. It doesn't have CarPlay so I don't know if it would work for you or not. Good luck. [ BEN  Apr 19, 2016 ]
I don't know if it is Apple certified but it works with my i6, i5s, i4 and iPod mini. The only issue is with the mini where it doesn't charge while playing. Charges mini ok when not in use. [ Michael  Apr 19, 2016 ]
use a spade bit. Not sure what sure I used [ JASON  Feb 19, 2016 ]
Depends on what functions the usb port has that you have it connected to. It is just an extension cord from whatever you have it plugged into so all it functions should be available. [ Michael  Apr 20, 2016 ]
I had a JVC radio and was able to use a thumb drive with no problems at all. [ BRANDON  Feb 16, 2016 ]

It would work just as if you plugged your phone into the back usb port with the apple cable. This is just an usb extension cord. [ Michael  Apr 20, 2016 ]
From what I know of it it's just a usb extension [ ADAM M  Dec 10, 2014 ]
Yes it also charges my android. It may go into media mode but it will charge. [ JAMES  Aug 29, 2014 ]
As long as the iPhone allows for charging via USB 2.0 protocol then it should work. It charges my Android phone and Blackberry no problem. You for sure have power feed in this connector so I would think it should be fine. That said Apple tends to make its own rules so I would check the user manual of your phone to see if it is a USB compliant device. [ PAUL  Aug 28, 2014 ]
Yes and 5s too. [ ANDREW E  Aug 28, 2014 ]
It charges phones but tries to play music off of the device being charged. Randomly switches too it. Very annoying. [ STEPHEN  Aug 28, 2014 ]
You would have to epoxy it in place. The pop up tabs won't hold it in place like you think. Look for a pop out tab in the console or dash somewhere (usually next to other accessory buttons) and drill a hole in that. Thats what I did on my ride. Looks factory stock. [ Michael  Apr 20, 2016 ]
yes it does fit, you may have to make a small filler piece, but it will fit! [ ADAM M  Jan 21, 2014 ]
yes it well but if your that close to the radio y not use the one in the radio put mine in 98 mustang in remote spot rear off center console [ RICHARD A  Jan 21, 2014 ]
I am not sure about that. Although, it looks like it came from factory in my dash. It has an insert so it does not look like you just cut a hole. I have mine down by my cigarette lighter and it looks great. I know that's not that answer you were looking for but I hope it helps. [ STEPHEN  Jan 21, 2014 ]
Yes. Did it that way myself [ PHILIP D  Jan 21, 2014 ]
