Q
If this item doesnt support CarPlay will is still allow for charging your iPhone? Just like some additional clarity because a message popes up in my cart when I added this item as $154.95 installation kit for an 7 inch? alpine in dash receiver that has CarPlay as a feature.
[ Joseph  Dec 06, 2017 ]

A
I use CarPlay and what I did is to install a separate USB port in the dash and connect that one to usb 1 and the. Use the usb-ram in usb2 for other media. Yes it does support charging iPhones as well.
[ Chris  Dec 13, 2017 ]

I purchase the alpine 007ilx, needed this component to enable the use of the media hub in the center console of my 13 ram. charges my iPhone 6 and car play feature functions normally

Q
How does this hook up? Bought a pioneer double din and would like to use the stock usb and aux.
[ Brandon  Nov 08, 2017 ]
4 answers
A
You have to replace the usb circuit board with this circuit board. I hooked mine up to my pioneer head unit and the supplied usb that connects to the back of the unit didn't make a good connection to the USB port on the unit, so I disconnected it and used the cord supplied with the head unit. I don't use the i datalink. Not sure if it's the cord or the unit.
[ John L  Nov 15, 2017 ]
A
The instructions were included in mine. Its a straight swap for the existing hardware.
[ Chad  Nov 14, 2017 ]
A
You have to take the inside of the center console apart. You will change out the existing usb circuit board and replace it with the ine from crutchfield. TBH mine has never worked.
[ Joseph  Nov 14, 2017 ]
A
you dont need it. i bought it and hooked up everything else first. then when i tested my set up my stock center consel worked perfect
[ Robert  Nov 14, 2017 ]
