a compatible Alpine receiver to select iPod/iPhoness with a 30-pin dock connector. The cable gives
you full control and full sound at full speed. You can quickly and easily search

or Song searches. You can view Artist, Album, Song Information and Song Number
right on the head unit's display. The cable will also power the iPod/iPhone and charge
the battery. The Alpine KCU-445i is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible

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 wait until a newer software update is available.
Alpine Head Unit Compatibility: The KCU-445i is compatible
with select 2009-up Alpine head units that support USB iPod/iPhone direct
connection. Once the adapter is connected, the iPod appears on the head unit's
display as a selectable source.
Super-Fast USB Connection: With USB connection, your iPod's
large music libraries are loaded instantly through your compatible Alpine head
unit. Sound quality is maximized by using USB along with your head unit's D/A
converter, allowing for a Signal to Noise ratio up to 105dB.

so many ways to listen to thousands of songs, now you can get fast access to Playlists,
Artists, Albums, Songs, Genres, Podcasts, and Composers. No interruptions while you
search, so you can keep enjoying your music.

33% to 49%, Preset 4: 50% to 66%, Preset 5: 67% to 82%, Preset 6: 83% to 100% of
