About the Kenwood KCA-iP301V
The KCA-iP301V connecting cable gives you high-speed access to the music and video on your Video iPod or iPhone through your compatible 2009-up Kenwood DVD receiver. One end of the cable plugs into your iPod's dock connector; the other end includes a USB cable, a miniplug audio cable, and a miniplug video cable, all of which connect to your Kenwood stereo.
