Overview

Our take on the Pioneer CD-iU50 iPod Connection Cable

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.

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.
