Can you provide a picture of the 8-pin connector?

Unfortunately I don't have a thing that shows a picture of that end of the cable, and it isn't something we have access to here in the office in order to grab it to snap a picture. I can tell you that the cable is only compatible with USA Spec iPod interfaces models PA10, PA11, and PA12.

Can you provide a picture of the connection?

Unfortunately the manufacturer doesn't have any pictures in the manual and I don't have any additional pictures here. Since we are in a office away from the merchandise, I'm not able to grab it and take a picture. I can tell you this cable is only compatible with USA Spec PA10, PA11, and PA12 interfaces.

That's correct! The CBP-85A iPod cable is a direct replacement cable for the USA SPEC PA10, PA11, and PA12 series factory iPod interface adapters. For more details or to discuss further, feel free to get with an Advisor by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Hope that helps :)
