USA Spec CB-PA-105 iPod® Cable

Written By TrevG, Tennessee on Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the original interface, and like most other reviewers, experienced bad connection. I bought this as a replacement and less than a year later, was experiencing the same problem. I called USA spec to have it replace under warranty. The description says there is a 1 year warranty, but the representative said they would only honor it up to six months instead of the full year. crappy customer service with a less than satisfactory product. Unfortunately, I have already spent this much money so it would be a waste to buy a whole new interface with another company. that is the only reason I continue to buy this item.

Cons: does not hold up

This was a replacement cable and It was easy to install and is working perfectly.

Pros: easy to install , long enough for other people in the car to use the device,

Cons: Had to replace it once

Better quality than original cable

Written By SeanB, Ohio on Sunday, June 28, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought as a replacement for original cable that was breaking in and out. Replacement seems to have a much better constructed 30 pun connector for connecting to iPod and adapter. Original cable lasted 3 years so probably shouldn't complain about original but expect this to last bey of my ownership of the vehicle.

Pros: Good quality Quality transfer to unit

Cons: none identified

Works perfectly

Like other customers, our sound was cutting in and out on the right side speakers. This replacement cord did the trick which was a very easy fix.

Cable Doesn't Charge iPhone 4S

Written By AZ Nate, Tucson, Arizona on Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My original cord got kinked and the right channel began cutting out intermittently. This replacement cable allows me to play music, but will not charge my iPhone 4S. It keeps popping up an error that says, "This accessory may not be supported".

In Summary: Replacement cable plays music but doesn't charge phone. Original cable charges phone but now only plays music on one channel due to kinking.

Pros: Plays Music

Cons: Doesn't charge iPhone 4S

Just what I needed

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to replace the cable that came with my USA Spec PA15-INFI (for my Infiniti G35). This cable works very well, whereas my old cable must have been going bad because it would not display the artist/title most of the time, and half of the time I couldn't skip tracks, just let them play. This one feels more durable and is slightly different in design but still works great.

It is what it says it is...

Replacement Cable

Written By Don, Tennessee on Monday, January 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed the USA Spec IPOD/IPHONE adaptor for the my daughters Honda Accord (w/ Navigation) and after a few months she broke the phone connector (plug) on the original cable. I ordered this replacement cable and installed it easily.

Pros: Easily installs to replace the original cable

Cons: Does not come with an option for iPhone 5/6 - you need a separate apple adapter. If not careful the phone plug will break - this is why I had to buy the replacement cable.

Bought as replacement cable

Written By Mike, Virginia on Sunday, December 21, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the IPOD/IPHONE adaptor for the my daughters Honda Accord and it works great. She is kind of rough on stuff, and pinched the cable one too many times. When I installed the system, we put the white main electronics box is in the caddy between the 2 front seats, and the cable to the phone runs out of the hole between the opening top and the caddy. If not careful after opening the padded top, you can pinch the cable between the top and the front side. She did this one too many times, and started getting right channel intermittent signal. Found the replacement cable on the Crutchfield website very easily (after getting the part number from the installation manual), and ordered a replacement. Living in Virginia, it arrived the next day, plugged right in, and works like new. Could not be happier.

Pros: Direct replacement

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My original cord went through the standard car wear and tear to the point when he right channel intermittently cut in and out. The replacement recharges my iPhone well and the audio is back to normal. Crutchfield's price and delivery were great as always.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Another successful do it yourself Crutchfield install. I removed and installed my IPOD Cable yesterday. The whole deal took less than 30 minutes. I reused the original Crutchfield installation guide. My IPOD-Car audio system sounds and operates much better.


Cons: Back ordered product
