Our take on the Pioneer iPhone® 5 VGA Connection Package

by Dominic Devito

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.

Get the most out of your iPhone 5 through your Pioneer receiver

This connection package from Pioneer lets you take full advantage of your iPhone 5, 5c, or 5s on the road. This package contains the two cables needed to deliver video (while parked) and apps to the VGA and USB inputs on select 2014 Pioneer AVH Series multimedia receivers:

Apple® Lightning™ to VGA adapter
Pioneer VGA interface cable kit

With these cables in place, you'll be able to access and control select iPhone 5 apps through the Pioneer receiver's AppRadio Mode. You'll also be able to play and control the music and videos you've stored on your iPhone 5 from the receiver's touchscreen.
