About the Metra AX-HYKIA-USB Adapter for Hyundai


Metra's AX-HYKIA-USB cable allows you to keep the USB port in your Hyundai when you install a new car stereo. One end of the cable connects to the plug just behind the USB port on your vehicle's console, while the other end plugs into the USB port on the back of your new car stereo. You must install a car stereo with a rear USB port. The package also includes RCA cables to retain your car's 3.5mm jack – your radio must have a rear AUX input. Warranty: 60 days.

What's in the box:

  • 3' Hyudai/Kia USB/AUX adapter harness

Will this work with Pioneer SPH-DA120 and Carplay? Some reviewers on other sites say "no" but maybe they are hooking it up wrong...

USB adapters like this as well as USB extension cables will not allow CarPlay to work with the Pioneer SPH-DA120 receiver.
