Overview

Our take on the Metra iPod® Adapter for Pioneer

Metra's APR-IP-AUX adapter allows you to connect an iPod or iPhone® to your Pioneer receiver with a CD changer input. Installation is simple — simply connect the cable's dock connector to your compatible iPod, and the other end of the cable to your Pioneer receiver's IP-Bus/CD changer input. You'll also need to hardwire a 12-volt positive power lead and a ground cable for charging the iPod battery. You'll access your music through your iPod's controls, and not with the Pioneer receiver's controls.

It also provides a 3.5mm miniplug connection that you can use to connect many portable devices. Warranty: 60 days.

Note: You can't connect a Pioneer CD changer to the receiver once this APR-IP-AUX adapter is hooked up to the IP-Bus/CD changer input.

It works great! Much better sound than a fm modulator.
