Great... if you can find it!

Crutchfield customer from Laguna Niguel, CA on 3/22/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It's just a replacement cable. It either works or doesn't (it does). I wish I could have found it thru the site search, but it's not there under mfg, p/n, description or linked from the original product. I had to find a back door direct link from a google search. C'mon Crutchfield, throw us a bone and cross ref replacement parts! Anyway, I've got music again in my antique beater Lexus. Hooray!

Pros: Works like new

Cons: Hard to find

Great plug for old school ipod!

Nick from Havertown, PA on 5/18/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I just ordered this awesome cable in May 2018 for my 2007 Toyota Corolla and it works like a charm!!! Back in '08, I ordered a USA spec Ipod hookup for my car from crutchfield so that I could plug in my ipod to listen to tunes in my car. My bro helped me hook up the system and it has worked great for 10 years! I had to order this new cord in '18 because the original cord started to break/fray and the speaker wasn't working any longer on the right side of my car. Eddie from Crutchfield gave me the best customer service I've ever received. He recognized what cable it was and sent me the link. He also said it would arrive the next day. He placed the order over the phone and it arrived 1 DAY LATER!! Unbelievable delivery, service and quality! The cord fits perfectly into the hub in my car and the old school 30pin wide Ipod plug seamlessly fits right into my ipod touch just like the old cord. It's awesome to know that there is great customer service that can find me a replacement plug without having to buy a whole new system.

I'd give 5 stars but, it's goin on 1/2way through 2018 and USA Spec still has not upgraded this cable to one with a Lightning plug, it's still using the giant plug that was used on the iPhone 4 and iPod from 10 years ago.lol

Pros: works perfect, built well

Cons: Old technology, needs update

Crutchfield customer from Forest Hills, NY on 11/8/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My PA15-HON2 stopped working properly. The sound came out on the car speakers only when it was plugged in half way into the iphone 4S (ios 9.02) but it wouldn't charge. I was afraid I had to buy another unit but replacing the cable to the iphone 4S worked. Very happy with this replacement. Good price too.

Pros: Works like it should. Hope it will last.

Cons: None

USA Spec CB-PA105A iPod Cable

Crutchfield customer from St Paul, MN on 5/29/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My old cable had a lose connection at the ipod (which is common with this make after a few years) so that the left speakers would not play unless you jiggled the cable. Well not I get both sides of speakers and solved a second problem of the ipod constantly beeping and having the light go off and then on. The price from Crutchfield is the best I found.

Great sound, durable cable

Jim from Phoenix, AZ on 10/25/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The USA Spec CB-PA105A iPod® Cable is an exact fit for the USA Spec unit and is on the thicker, heavy side not flimsy like other cables. The Crutchfield price-point, expediency in processing and delivery and their stellar customer service is why I chose to purchase the product through them as is typically the case with my electronics purchases.

Pros: Heavy, durable cable, great sound, processed and shipped quickly, great price.

Cons: None

Pros: Super easy to install and shipped very quickly. Also price was very affordable

USA Spec CB-PA105A iPod Cable

TrevG from Tennessee on 7/21/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought the original interface, and like most other reviewers, experienced bad connection. I bought this as a replacement and less than a year later, was experiencing the same problem. I called USA spec to have it replace under warranty. The description says there is a 1 year warranty, but the representative said they would only honor it up to six months instead of the full year. crappy customer service with a less than satisfactory product. Unfortunately, I have already spent this much money so it would be a waste to buy a whole new interface with another company. that is the only reason I continue to buy this item.

Pros:

Cons: does not hold up

Better quality than original cable

SeanB from Ohio on 6/28/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought as a replacement for original cable that was breaking in and out. Replacement seems to have a much better constructed 30 pun connector for connecting to iPod and adapter. Original cable lasted 3 years so probably shouldn't complain about original but expect this to last bey of my ownership of the vehicle.

Pros: Good quality Quality transfer to unit

Cons: none identified

Cable Doesn't Charge iPhone 4S

AZ Nate from Tucson, Arizona on 6/10/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My original cord got kinked and the right channel began cutting out intermittently. This replacement cable allows me to play music, but will not charge my iPhone 4S. It keeps popping up an error that says, "This accessory may not be supported". In Summary: Replacement cable plays music but doesn't charge phone. Original cable charges phone but now only plays music on one channel due to kinking.

Pros: Plays Music

Cons: Doesn't charge iPhone 4S

Just what I needed

Brian from Tennessee on 5/30/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this to replace the cable that came with my USA Spec PA15-INFI (for my Infiniti G35). This cable works very well, whereas my old cable must have been going bad because it would not display the artist/title most of the time, and half of the time I couldn't skip tracks, just let them play. This one feels more durable and is slightly different in design but still works great.

Cons:

Replacement Cable

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed the USA Spec IPOD/IPHONE adaptor for the my daughters Honda Accord (w/ Navigation) and after a few months she broke the phone connector (plug) on the original cable. I ordered this replacement cable and installed it easily.

Pros: Easily installs to replace the original cable

Cons: Does not come with an option for iPhone 5/6 - you need a separate apple adapter. If not careful the phone plug will break - this is why I had to buy the replacement cable.

Bought as replacement cable

Mike from Virginia on 12/21/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought the IPOD/IPHONE adaptor for the my daughters Honda Accord and it works great. She is kind of rough on stuff, and pinched the cable one too many times. When I installed the system, we put the white main electronics box is in the caddy between the 2 front seats, and the cable to the phone runs out of the hole between the opening top and the caddy. If not careful after opening the padded top, you can pinch the cable between the top and the front side. She did this one too many times, and started getting right channel intermittent signal. Found the replacement cable on the Crutchfield website very easily (after getting the part number from the installation manual), and ordered a replacement. Living in Virginia, it arrived the next day, plugged right in, and works like new. Could not be happier.

Pros: Direct replacement

Cons: None
