About the PAC iPod® Adapter for Alpine

This PAC iPod adapter sends the music signal from your iPod to your Alpine car stereo. You get the best possible sound from your playlists, and your iPod gets a fully charged battery. Your iPod stays powered up while connected, so you'll use the iPod's controls to select your tunes.

This PAC iPod adapter sends the music signal from your iPod to your Alpine car stereo. You get the best possible sound from your playlists, and your iPod gets a fully charged battery. Your iPod stays powered up while connected, so you'll use the iPod's controls to select your tunes.

This 50" adapter cable works with any dockable iPod. Your Alpine car stereo must have Ai-Net bus protocol for CD changer, satellite radio, or other optional Alpine equipment. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: This adapter does NOT provide control of the iPod from the stereo's faceplate and song titles are not transferred to the stereo's display. If you prefer to have these features, check out PAC's iPod control interface for select 2006-up Alpine stereos.

Alpine also offers two iPod control interfaces: the KCE-422I control interface for 2006-up Alpine stereos, and the KCA-420I control interface for older Alpine Ai-Net stereos.

Compatibility Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter.

Features

Overview: The PAC iC-ALPA allows you to connect select Apple iPods to any Alpine Ai-NET and JVC J-BUS headunits. It has an iPod dock connector on one end and a proprietary plug on the other. Select iPods with a dock connector are compatible; the cable will also power the iPod and charge the battery. This adapter does not allow control of the iPod by the Alpine or JVC headunit, nor does it transfer artist/song text information to the Alpine or JVC display. The iC-ALPA plugs into the CD changer port on the headunit, so it cannot be used in conjunction with a changer. The cable also features a male 3.5mm connector and female RCA jacks for connecting an external audio source other than your iPod to your compatible Alpine or JVC headunit.

iPod Compatibility: The PAC iC-ALPA is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model features when connected to a compatible Alpine or JVC headunit (as of July 2010):

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the aftermarket radio 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.
