Our take on the Pioneer CD-IV202NAVI

Enjoy iPhone® 5 compatibility with your Pioneer receiver

The Pioneer CD-IV202NAVI cable kit provides a link between your iPhone 5 and a compatible Pioneer receiver with a VGA input, so you can take advantage of AppRadio Mode and video from your iPhone 5 on the receiver's screen (when parked). This kit includes a 1.5-meter VGA cable for audio and video transfer between the receiver and your iPhone 5, plus a 1.5-meter cable (17-pin to USB ) that charges your device when it's connected. A power supply cable is also included. To complete your hookup, you'll also need the Apple® Lightning™ to USB Cable, plus the Apple Lightning to VGA Adapter.

The VGA cable's switchbox offers two video settings, which can be changed to work with different Pioneer receivers. With this cable kit and the other necessary adapters in place, you'll be able to access and control select iPhone 5 apps through the Pioneer receiver's AppRadio Mode, and also play and control from the receiver's touchscreen all the the music and videos you've stored on your iPhone 5.

Note: A firmware update from Pioneer may be required for your receiver (available at no charge — see Pioneer's website for details).

Waste of Money

El Dorado from Rockford, IL on 6/13/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product is a waste of money. You'll also need to buy the AV adapter from apple which is another $50 and hope that it works because on mine it didn't. Just don't buy anything Pioneer too much hassle. Even Crutchfield couldn't help me determine the problem I was having.

Pros: It charges your phones battery if it's low.

Cons: Too many wires

Be nice if Pioneer released the firmware update before the cable

CMB from La Plata, MD on 4/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm going to give two reviews - Crutchfield and Pioneer. First Crutchfield - 5 Stars - Ordered on Friday received on Monday! Can't say anything else! Pioneer - For the Item - 4 Stars - Easy to install and the directions were fine, you just have to uninstall your radio (I have a 940BT), connect everything and reinstall. No problem for me. --- For support --- 1 Star - Well my iPhone 5 did not show on my 940BT screen (so I'm still using BT to connect) so i called Pioneer tech support to confirm the firmware update. Yup, need it but wouldn't it make sense to release it before or at the same time you release the cable??? You would think!! I will post another review of the product when I apply the firmware update!

Pros: Love my system and hopefully with this kit the synergy between my 940BT and my iPhone 5 will be great!! Crutchfield and their fast shipping!! Which BTW is where I purchased my 940BT and all accessories to connect it to my G35!!

Cons: Release the firmware update when you release the cable!!
