Overview: The PIE PIO/USB-205v iPod adapter permits direct control, audio/video playback, and charging of your iPod through the Pioneer AVH-P5100DVD Multimedia head unit. The Pioneer AVH-P5100DVD can be connected with an iPod via this dedicated adapter by attaching the cable's USB type-A and multi-pin proprietary connector to the head unit's rear-panel USB and multi-pin proprietary port and plugging the cable's dock connector into your iPod's dock connection. Using the touch panel or hard keys of the AVH-P5100DVD, 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 PIE PIO/USB-205v iPod adapter cable is "Made for iPod" compatible and supports the following iPod model functions when connected to a compatible Pioneer multimedia head unit (as of Dec. 2009):
|iPod/iPhone Model||Generation||Media Type||Control Type||Display Type||Charge|
|Audio||Video||Unit||iPod/iPhone||Song/Artist Info||Track Info|
Note: Apple software updates may change functionality results requiring you to reset your iPod or iPhone.
