Check your phone

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Make sure you check your phone manufacturer before spending the money on this cable. I ended up at my cell phone store who sent me to a "big box" retailer for an additional device available only through Samsung. I found out that even though Samsung sells the device, my S6 does not support the HDMI technology, nor do the newer Apple phones.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The adapter itself works fine but beware that the Samsung Galaxy S6 does not support MHL anymore so no screen mirroring.



I needed an adapter for it to work with my phone

Crutchfield customer from Houston, TX on 12/8/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the price it could have come with the adapter that goes with the Samsung note 3. But it does work well.

Pros: Good quality, seem as it wont break easily.

Cons: A tad bit expensive to have to buy an extra part for just to make it work.

JVC Head to Galaxy S5

Not working as it should from California on 10/9/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am using an aftermarket cable because this one was out of stock. The problem is the screen must remain on in order to work without rooting your phone. Because of this you must have a way to charge your phone in order to get good use out of it. The aftermarket cable works well enough to charge the phone so it only loses 1% every few minutes with the screen set to be as dim as possible. When I got this cable I thought my problems would be over and this cable would be able to charge better. Well to my dismay, I took apart my dash and installed this cable but I was smart enough to test it, It would not charge so it renders it useless for what I need. Glad it came free with the head unit, sad I wasted my free gift on choice on it.


Cons: does not charge Galaxy S5 as it displays.

Works as it should

Tony in the UK from England on 7/3/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works as it should. No issues.

Pros: Works as it should and is not a short cable

Not all that was expected

C. K. Eskew from North Carolina on 6/5/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Had to get this cable in order to make my GS5 work with the JVC receiver I bought...but it did not. I had to buy an adapter to attach between the cable and the phone.



Works fine

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Cable works great, had to get the 11 pin to 5 pin adapter for my note 3.




nick from milwaukee,wi on 10/14/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The salesman sent me this cable because the orginal salesman that sold me the car radio said it would hook up to my Sirius satellite radio with out using my phone . I still cannot use Sirius because there is no hdmi connector on the unit . I have stuck 600 into a radio that does everything that my last one did. Salesmen should take a class on what they're selling!!

Pros: N/a

Cons: Didn't work with stereo

Crutchfield response on 10/20/2014 Our Tech Support team reached out to the customer to try and help with the situation. We're sorry for any misunderstanding on the part of our Advisors.

Exactly what its supposed to do

BillH from Pensacola, FL on 8/25/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The HDMI to MicroUSB cable is perfect.. just keep in mind, that if you are a Samsung phone, you'll need an extra adapter from Samsung. For some reason they use a different pin layout.

Pros: perfect length, and nice high quality.

Cons: Samsung needs an extra adapter (not the cable's fault)

JVC KS-U61 MicroUSB to HDMI Cable

Monkeybone from Maumelle, AR on 5/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Does not work as advertised.

Pros: None

Cons: Everything

Crutchfield response on 5/27/2014 This is likely an issue with phone compatibility. In particular, certain models of Galaxy phones (the S3, S4, and Note II) require a 5-pin to 11-pin adapter (as stated on our website). Our tech support team is following up with the customer.

Connects and charges my phone from radio. Did have to order extra part from Samsung to make phone display on screen. [ JEREMY  Dec 31, 2015 ]

1 question already asked

I bought the hdmi cable to use screen mirroring for my note 4. It works but is very clunky and not easy to use while driving unfortunately. The setup must be followed exactly to work. It took me about 3 days to get it to work right. [ Robert  Nov 12, 2015 ]
I know it will charge phone not sure about the apps. If I recall you download an app and it runs through that. My son has a galaxy but does not use the app for his phone. [ MICHAEL  Mar 30, 2015 ]
Absolutely not. It completely failed on mine. Apparently there is a Samsung specific adapter required that no one tells you about. [ MICHAEL  Mar 30, 2015 ]
Yes it will work with the Note 3 and 4. [ Jerome  Mar 30, 2015 ]
