JVC KS-U30 iPod® A/V cable
Play iPod and iPhone audio/video through select 2008-up JVC receivers
Our take on the JVC KS-U30 iPod® A/V cable by Crutchfield's Zak Billmeier
Take full advantage of the latest iPod technology in your car with JVC's KS-U30 iPod audio/video cable. This cable allows you to connect your iPod or iPhone directly to your compatible JVC receiver for high-speed audio and video transfer, while allowing you to surf through your iPod's songs and categories using your receiver's controls. Once connected, you'll be able to view your iPod's album art and video content directly on your receiver's display.
The KS-U30 cable works with all 2008-up JVC receivers that have both A/V and USB inputs. The cable also charges your iPod or iPhone while it's connected. Warranty: 1 year.
Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter.
Works great but wish the length was longer
