Must Have Item

Johpap from Albuquerque, nm on 6/29/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you want to get the most of Pioneer's app mode then you need this item. Don't pay for the knock offs. Get this one--the real apple product.



Works Well

AustinC from Chattanooga, TN on 5/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It does what it needs to do. Seems like a quality cord, but I haven't had it long enough to prove otherwise. In general though, Apple's new lightning cords are well made, so I would trust that this one is also.


Cons: Pricey

Lightning cable for IPhone

Lightning cable from Texas on 5/6/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you have an iPhone this is definitely a must buy. I have always just ran my iPhone through the standard USB cord but this puts that to shame. It makes controlling my pioneer deck when listening to music so much easier. A must buy, easy installation

Pros: Makes controlling music on my pioneer deck so much easier than just using the standard USB cord

Cons: Wish the end cord was a little longer for hiding the wires that plug into it but the ease of controlling my phone through the deck is by far worth it

Works perfect

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's cord is only 3 inches long. So that means you're going to have a lightning cable and a video cable hanging out of your dash going to this device, then 3" to your iPhone. Pretty unsightly. It's your only option if you need a VGA adaptor.

Pros: Market cornered

Cons: Market cornered.

VGA connector works as it should. Only downside is the lightning cable is too short for use with the pioneer head unit I purchased



Thumbs up

My avh-x2600bt is now working well with apps and mirror mode. Wish there wasn't so many dang extras to purchase to make it all work like this but it is sweet!

Pros: Apps and video from phone to HU

Cons: Another $$$$$ to make it work

Apple® Lightning™ to VGA Adapter

Mustang Fan from Camas, WA on 9/18/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product works fine but the short lead of lightning cable is a pain. I ran this back to the jockey box in the center console of my Mustang and all there is to connect the iPhone is a short little lead in the bottom of the box. VERY INCONVENIENT to work with. I tried to find an extension cable for the lightning cable to an iPhone 5 and Apple does not make one. Two "other" manufacturer cables off Amazon did not work. Now I can't find an extension and this is a pain to work with.

Pros: Works fine, easy connections

Cons: SHORT Lead

Good job
