This cable currently works with Kenwood's DNX9980HD, KVT-696, and KVT-516 receivers. Warranty: 1 year.

Works with kvt 696. Used apple 30 pin to lightning adapter for iphone 5s still works perfect. Should work with 2011 up radios.

Note: 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.

Connection: The Kenwood KCA-iP302 cable has an iPod dock connector on one end, and a USB (type-A) connector and separate 3.5mm audio & video connectors on the other end.

  • iPod Dock Connector: The cable's iPod dock connector plugs into your compatible iPod or iPhone.
  • USB Connector: The cable's USB (type-A) connector plugs into your compatible Kenwood multimedia head unit's rear-panel USB (type-A) port. The USB (type-A) connector handles the control and charging of  your iPod or iPhone, so you can navigate through your music and video files using your Kenwood head unit's controls and view song and movie information on its display monitor. The controls of your Kenwood head unit will be seamless when used with the optional KCA-iP302 cable and include metadata browsing as well as the ability to choose any iPod playback mode to suit your listening application.
  • 3.5mm Audio Connector: The cable's 3.5mm audio connector plugs into your compatible Kenwood head unit's rear-panel 3.5mm audio input. The 3.5mm audio terminal transfers the music from your iPod/iPhone to your Kenwood multimedia head unit. By using an analog 3.5mm audio input, the music travels to the receiver as an analog signal, so you can even play the Digital-Rights-Protected files stored on your iPod/iPhone.
  • 3.5mm Video Connector: The cables' 3.5mm video connector plugs into your compatible Kenwood head unit's rear-panel 3.5mm video input. The 3.5mm video terminal transfers movies, TV shows, and music videos stored on your iPod/iPhone to your Kenwood multimedia head unit.

Note: The KCA-iP302 is a total of 6' long, from the iPod connector to the two audio & video miniplugs. The length of the cable from the iPod connector to the end of the USB connector is 34".
