P.I.E. iPod® Connection Cable
Heavy-duty USB to iPod cable
Our take on the P.I.E. iPod® Connection Cable by Crutchfield's Zak Billmeier
Leave your iPod cable safe at home. P.I.E.'s USB-POD iPod cable is just like the cable that came with your iPod, only with a more rugged design that stands up to automotive use. Use this 3-foot cable to connect your iPod or iPhone® to any car stereo that features direct iPod control via USB input. Warranty: 1 year.
Having extra cable is good for teenage grandson, as taking one from house to car and back again just wouldn't work. Remember I said teenager. He really likes that he can play his I-pod music thru the radio. THUMP-THUMP-THUMP
