Overview

Our take on the Kenwood CA-U1EX

If you want to increase the reach of your USB input, Kenwood's CA-U1EX USB extension cable fits the bill. The kit includes a USB-to-USB cable, a USB-to-mini-USB cable, and mounting kits. Plug either cable into your Kenwood receiver's front or rear USB input, and you'll have an extra 39 inches of cable to play with.

If you want to spiff up your installation, you can use the flush-mount or under-dash mount kits to install a permanent USB input in your car. Kenwood includes all the hardware you'll need for the installation.

Works and fit perfectly in wife's car. Couldn't be happier, thanks Crutchfield!

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I'm trying this because the 3rd party extension cable that my installer used will not recognize my 6th gen iPod Touch. I'm hoping this one does the trick. [ MelissaGT  Apr 27, 2017 ]
Great prices and fast service! [ Manuel  Apr 22, 2017 ]
Crutchfield quality of service [ Bill  Jul 01, 2016 ]

2 questions already asked

Also, note that only one of the cables is an extension cable for mounting, so you'd have to get an additional cable, I believe. The other is a phone cable, and doesn't work with the bracket. [ Camden  Jun 04, 2017 ]
Each of the brackets can only support one port, so if you want to mount both, you'll have to mount them in different places/ways. (one bracket is front-mount, the other is top-mount) [ Camden  Jun 04, 2017 ]
What do you mean by " both ports"? The item I have has only a SUB port. [ Roger  Jun 04, 2017 ]
There are two mounts one for implanting the device and one for surface mounting. Even though the cables supplied can handle micro and regular usb, the mounts are only designed for regular usb connections not micro usb. Hope it helps. [ Keith  Jun 03, 2017 ]
Only one. [ Nicholas  Jun 03, 2017 ]
Only one port of the two included...you have to select which one you want. [ Eric  Jun 03, 2017 ]
Be sure to test the USB connection for data and power before you mount anything. [ Roger  Jun 04, 2017 ]
Carl, I did buy one of these but found I had already installed a USB cable into my glove box when I originally installed the unit. It had been about a year and I forgot I put it in. That being said I see no reason why this cable wouldn't work. The extra length and the flush mount ports are a really nice feature. I only use mine for updating the GPS. I also have a direct plug-in cable for my iPod but I believe you can connect anything that use USB connectivity through this cable. Kenwood themselves may be of more assistance on this matter.

Any USB extension cable will fit, you just won't have the mount kit [ Simon  Aug 11, 2015 ]
