Product Research


Overview: The Clarion CCUIPOD3 iPod connector cable allows the Clarion VZ300 to connect to your iPod or iPhone via the headunit's rear-panel proprietary iPod connector port. Using the CCUIPOD3 cable, the VZ300 supports audio/video playback, control, information display, and charging of select iPods and iPhones. You can search your iPod/iPhone's music and video content by category; content is then listed alphabetically. Your iPod's controls will be locked during audio playback; to view photos or videos, you must use the iPod's click-wheel or touchscreen. Video can only be displayed while the vehicle is in park (the unit will display "Audio Only" when your vehicle is in motion). The Clarion VZ300 is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model features when connected to the CCUIPOD3 iPod connector cable (as of March 2010):

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the headunit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until an newer software update is available.
