Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the headunit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until an newer software update is available. Not compatible with iOS 4.0 for iPhone (3G/3GS) or iPod touch (2nd/3rd gen).

Kenwood Head Unit Compatibility: The cable is compatible with 2009 and later Kenwood Multimedia head units equipped with a USB terminal and a 3.5mm aux audio and video input. T

Note: The KCA-iP301V is compatible with select 2008 and Kenwood headunits via firmware upgrade. Visit Kenwood.com for firmware information.

Connection: One end of the KCA-iP301V (3-wire) cable plugs directly into your iPod's dock connector while the other end of the cable uses three connectors that plug into the back of your compatible Kenwood multimedia head unit. The USB type-A connector portion of the cable plugs into the receiver's USB port and handles the control and charging of your iPod, so you can navigate through your music and video files using your head unit's controls and view song and movie info on its display. The two 3.5mm miniplug connectors of the cable plug into the head unit's A/V 3.5mm inputs and transfer the music and video from your iPod to your Kenwood multimedia head unit. By using the Auxiliary input, the music travels to the receiver as an analog signal, so you can even play the Digital-Rights-Protected files you've stored on your iPod. The controls of your Kenwood head unit will be seamless when used with the optional KCA-iP301V and include metadata browsing and playback of DRM contents, as well as the ability to choose any iPod playback mode to suit your listening application.
