The CableJive dockXtender makes it easier to use your iPhone 4/4S with a 30-pin dock — and lets you finally use your first-generation iPad with a dock, too. The cable has a female 30-pin connector that plugs into your dock, and a male 30-pin connector for your device.
The dockXtender's plug is slim enough to fit through the opening of almost any iPhone 4/4S case. So you can leave your iPhone in its case as you dock and sync it. Most docks have recessed plugs, which couldn't be used with an iPad. The dockXtender takes care of that problem, letting you connect your iPad to the dock.
The dockXtender allows full functionality, the same as if your device was plugged directly into the dock. The connectors' rugged build ensures they'll hold up to daily use. And the cable puts all the video and audio signals on a shielded path to prevent interference from data and other signals traveling through the dockXtender
Pros: Works as it should
This is an excellent product. It works as advertised. I was able to connect my iPad to a Yamaha iPhone dock connected to my Yamaha receiver. That way I can play music from either device. Sweet!
Pros: Works well out of the box. Easy to install - just hook it up.
30-pin Extension Cable: The 30-pin dockXtender cable lets you connect your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad with 30-pin connector to your iPod audio system's 30-pin dock, without having it to remove it from its protective case. And because of its 2' length, it extends your Apple device from the iPod dock system for better control and operation.
Connectivity: The docXtender extension cable features a female 30-pin connector on one end which plugs into your audio dock or charge station. On the other end is a male 30-pin connector which plugs into your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad with a 30-pin connector. The cable is 2' in length.
Compatibility: This extension cable is compatible with the following iPods, iPhones, and iPads (as of 8/12/2014).
|video (5th gen)||2G||1st gen|
|nano (1st/2nd/3rd/4th/5th/6th gen)||3GS||2nd gen|
|touch (1st/2nd/3rd/4th gen)||4|
Note: The 30-pin dockXtender cable is not compatible with the Apple VGA or Digital AV adapters.
