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.
Average Customer Review(s):
This adapter works well but DOES NOT charge the Ipod Touch 16GB 2nd Gen.
This was an easy plug and play install. It works perfectly.
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.
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.
Works just fine with my 30gb ipod. Charges and very fast with my alpine 9887.
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.
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.
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.
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.

iPod Full Speed: The iC-ALPF allows you to connect select Apple iPods to any 2006-2009 Full Speed-compatible Alpine head unit. It has an iPod dock connector on one end and a "D-shaped" 10-pin DIN plug on the other end. There is no hideaway box to deal with as with many other iPod adapters.
Alpine Head Unit Compatibility: The iC-ALPF is compatible with select 2006-2009 Alpine head units. These head units have a dedicated iPod Full Speed connector. The cable does not connect to the Ai-NET interface. Once the adapter is connected, the iPod appears on the headunit's display as a selectable source.
iPod Compatibility: This adapter cable can be used to interface a compatible receiver to select iPods with a dock connector. The cable gives you full control and full sound at full speed. You can quickly and easily search through all of the music contained on your iPod through Playlist, Artist, Album or Song searches. You can view Artist, Album, Song Information and Song Number right on the head unit's display. The cable will also power the iPod and charge the battery. The PAC iC-ALPF is "Made for iPod" compatible and supports the following iPod model features when connected to a compatible Alpine Full-Speed compatible headunits (as of Dec. 2009):
|iPod/iPhone Model||Generation||Media Type||Control Type||Display Type||Charge|

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the aftermarket radio and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until an newer software update is available.
