A
I needed a combination USB/HDMI plug that I could panel mount in my wife's 2007 Toyota Sequoia that would run to the back of the Pioneer AVIC NEX-8100 that is mounted in the dash. This way, the cables aren't relegated to the glove box and her iPhone 6s is more easily accessible. [ Stuart U.  Apr 04, 2016 ]
A
using with x008u to connect android device for watching video with 5.1 audio. [ ray  Mar 08, 2016 ]

To be honest i didn't try that, I needed the lighter so i drilled my own hole.
[ Frederick  Jan 06, 2020 ]

Hi Stephen, thank you for your question. These are the dimensions for installation of the Alpine KCU-315UH. Cutout Dimensions: 1.0625" (w) x 1.0" (h) x 1.8125" (d) Outer Dimensions: 1.625" (w) x 1.6875" (h) x 0.3125" (d). Hope this helps!
[ Jess  Nov 29, 2019 ]  Staff
A
I had to use a burr on a right angle grinder as a drill would not fit in my chosen location. The specs state Cutout Dimensions: 1.0625" (w) x 1.0" (h) x 1.8125" (d) Outer Dimensions: 1.625" (w) x 1.6875" (h) x 0.3125" (d) I did not measure when I was done to doublecheck, but I would say the description is accurate. The housing has locking tabs on the backside to clip it into the panel. I did not get my whole A Perfect Circle, but because of the tabs it still went in very snug and is not coming out unintentionally.
[ Billy  Nov 27, 2019 ]
A
I'm not sure what size the hole is. I removed my cigarette light and replaced it with this product. I did use a dremel to notch the opening. There is a tab on the plastic insert that keeps it in place and notching the opening accommodated the product fitment.
[ James  Nov 27, 2019 ]
Q
Will this work with Pioneer AHH 1330 NEX ?
[ Jeepllover1  Nov 10, 2019 ]

A
All it is a usb extension so yes it should work.
[ Allan  Nov 10, 2019 ]
Q
Does either port light up?
[ Jesse  May 06, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
No
[ Laureana  May 06, 2018 ]
A
If you are talking about actual lighting, then no. It's pretty simple and what you see , is what you get.
[ Jose  May 06, 2018 ]
Q

[ alex  Apr 08, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
It wil. I would suggest the KCX-630HD.
[ BRADLEY  Apr 08, 2018 ]
Q
how does the port stay on the dash when you install it?
[ Jose  Mar 15, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The plug end has 2 small clips that will hold it in if the correct size hole is drilled. I used a 1 inch bit and slowly widened it until the end clipped in tightly. Hope this helps
