Note:

  • *Requires the Lighting-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect to the head unit (KSU-30 cable not needed).
  • **Requires the JVC KSU-30 iPod cable (105KSU30, sold separately) and the Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter (472LTN230P, sold separately).
  • Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

Charging: The KS-U30 cable will also charge your iPod when connected to a compatible JVC head unit that is powered on.
