Pioneer CD-iU50 iPod Connection Cable
Connect your iPod to select Pioneer in-dash stereos
Our take on the Pioneer CD-iU50 iPod Connection Cable by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Use the optional CD-iU50 cable to connect your iPod to select Pioneer stereos with "uBus" USB control. You can leave your original iPod USB cable in the house, and keep the CD-iU50 cable in your car at all times. This cable only supports audio playback it will not transfer video to your receiver. Warranty: 1 year.
Compatibility Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter.
Works as expected & alot better than putting the original ipod cable in your car.

- 1.75' USB/iPod interface cable (with USB Type A plug on one end and a standard iPod dock connector on the other end)

Overview: The Pioneer CD-IU50 is an interface cable that allows you to plug your iPod/iPhone into a Pioneer head unit with a USB input for audio playback, control, and charging. It is virtually the same USB-to-iPod cable as the one that comes with your iPod/iPhone, allowing you to leave your original cable at home.
Compatibility: The CD-IU50 cable is compatible with Pioneer head units that feature a USB one-wire iPod/iPhone direct input.
iPod Compatibility: The Pioneer CD-iU50 iPod Audio Direct Cable is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model functions when connected to a compatible Pioneer multimedia head unit (as of 1/18/2012):
|iPod Model||Generation||Tested Version||Media Type||Control Type||Display Type||Charge|
|Audio||Video||Unit||iPod||Song Text||Track Info|
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 revert to the older software version or wait until a newer software update is available.
Connector Cover: The dock connector end of the cable has an attached cover to protect the connector from dirt or damage.
