Our take on the Pioneer CD-IU50V by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
The CD-IU50V interface cable lets you connect your iPod to select Pioneer navigation and DVD receivers, so you can access your iPod with the system's touchscreen controls. You'll see information like song and album titles, artist names, and track length all conveniently displayed on the receiver's screen. Just connect the cable to your iPod, plug it into your Pioneer receiver, and enjoy. Warranty: 1 year.

Overview: The Pioneer CD-IU50V interface cable allows you to plug your iPod directly into a compatible Pioneer Multimedia head unit's USB and Aux input terminal, and gain direct control, audio/video playback, and charging from the head unit. Touch slide scrolling, Alphabetical Hi-Speed Search, Album Art, and improved Link Search make it easy to find your iPod's music. The compatible Pioneer head unit can be connected with an iPod via this dedicated adapter, and using the touch panel or soft keys, you can play iPod-recorded songs with the following convenient functions.
- Text Information Display: Song/album titles, artist names, and track length are conveniently displayed on the monitor display. This capability also permits multiple "search" functions, making it a snap to find a song to play back.
- Multiple Search Functions: Just like looking for files stored on a PC, iPod-recorded songs may be sorted according to registered playlists, genres, artists, or albums to ensure easy access to each music file.
- Repeat Playback: The Repeat Playback function offers two options - repeat playing of a particular song or playback of all tunes from a specified playlist.
- Shuffle Songs: Shuffle Songs randomly plays the songs in your iPod's music library.
iPod Compatibility: The Pioneer CD-iU50V iPod Audio/Video 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 December 2011):
|iPod/iPhone||Generation||Tested Version||Media Type||Control Type||Display Type||iTunes Tagging||Pandora App||Charge|
|Audio||Video||head unit||iPod/iPhone||App Mode||Song/Artist 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.
