Our take on the PAC iPod® Control Adapter for Alpine Stereos

This PAC iPod adapter lets you control your iPod from select 2006-up Alpine car stereos. Your Alpine car stereo must have Alpine's "Full Speed™" iPod control capability. You get the best possible sound from your playlists.

Once connected, your Alpine stereo's Full Speed controls allow you to manage just about every playback function right from the radio's faceplate — jump between artists, albums, and playlists at the push of a button. Album, artist, and song information from your iPod will show up on the radio's display, too.

This adapter works with all dockable iPods and charges the iPod's battery while it's connected. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter.

PAC iPod® Control Adapter for Alpine Stereos

Mark from Hagerstown, MD on 1/18/2010

This cable works great with my new alpine deck. This product works with older ipod's not listed such as the Ipod click wheel and photo. A must have.

Convenient Addition

RustanL from Fort Worth, TX on 9/1/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This cable provides an easy way to access the content on my iPhone. The sound quality is perfect and the iPod controls on the Alpine head unit are very easy to use. However, there are a couple of things I didn't expect. The cable doesn't charge an iPhone when connected. Also, the iPhone cannot be used for any other functions when it's connected - it's locked into "iPod mode", if you will.

PAC Ipod controller VS Alpine Ipod controller

ERIC from Riverside,Calif on 4/2/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Go with this cable I own both and only purchased the PAC because the Alpine was out of stock and found out that this controller is just as good as the Alpine product at a better price. Thank You Crutchfield.

iPod cable

Richard from Dayton OH on 3/12/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This iPod adaptor worked perfectly with the Alpine stereo I was installing and an iPod. No muss no fuss. It was simply plug and play.

Pros:

Cons:

Album Art and More

Patrick from DuPont, WA on 9/26/2008

For those considering this cable a few things to understand. 1) This cable will not provide album artwork, in other words using this cable with your iPOD Album Artwork will not carry over at least on the Nanos. 2) You also can't turn off podcasts as you can when an iPOD is USB Connected. 3) Finally go over with a fine tooth comb the compatible iPod generations before you buy. This cable here allows them all with limitations. The USB cable I think offers two generations of certain iPOD compatibility.

Jim from Germantown TN, on 3/16/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The plug part that attaches to the IPOD has a loose wire causing one speaker to play and sometimes causes an ERROR 1 code to display on the radio. Not Happy, look for other cables.
