Our take on the Monster Cable iCarPlay Direct Connect 2000 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
As its name suggests, the Monster Cable iCarPlay Direct Connect 2000 lets you play music from your iPod, iPad, or iPhone through your car receiver via its minijack aux input. (Not all car stereos have an aux input, so please check before ordering.) The Direct Connect 2000 works with any Apple portable with a 30-pin dock connector. Stereo minijack cable runs from the Direct Connect to your receiver, and plugs into its auxiliary input. It features a retractable stereo mini cable for connection to your receiver, ensuring it won't get tangled or clutter up your dashboard.
The Direct Connect 2000 plugs into your car's 12-volt outlet to keep your Apple device charged, with built-in protection against overcharging. The mounted control panel let you play, pause and skip tracks without taking your eyes of the road.
