Alpine KCU-315UH

Crutchfield customer from Fort Benning, GA on 6/17/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Super well constructed cable and really gives a cleaned up look. no more usb cables hanging out of my dash. Put one in each of my vehicles.

Pros: great quality and has the little touches like the dust door.

Cons: wish they had an option for half the length

Perfect for adding a USB port to an older car

Cole from Jacksonville, FL on 12/13/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this extension cable when I installed the Alpine iLX-207 receiver in my 2006 Toyota Matrix XRS. I replaced the center console cigarette lighter socket with this cable and the end result looks like great, like the car came with that outlet. It's allowed me to plug in my iPhone and use the iLX-207's CarPlay feature while keeping my phone charged. The one caveat that I have is the cable is too long (15 feet) for my small car, requiring the excess cable to be wrapped up and stuffed under the center console. If you have an older car that doesn't have any USB ports, you need to purchase this extension cable if you replace your factory receiver with any Alpine receivers.

Pros: Looks OEM after installation USB and HDMI ports Easy installation

Cons: Cable is too long

Provided this cable to my installer for installation in my 2012 Honda Ridgeline. Connects the Alpine in dash unit and was installed in the center console. Works great and the installer intends to use it on other vehicles.

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 ]

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
