Overview

Our take on the iSimple uLinx iPod® Connection Cable

Leave your iPod cable safe at home. iSimple's uLinx iPod cable is just like the cable that came with your iPod, only with a more rugged design that stands up to automotive use. It features a heavy-duty square jacket, as well as a latching 30-pin connector that'll ensure the cable stays joined to your Apple device. The slim connector shell makes it compatible with the openings on most iPod cases.

Use this 4-foot cable to connect your iPod or iPhone® with a 30-pin connector to any car stereo that features direct iPod control via USB input. It'll work just fine with any high-speed USB port outside of your vehicle, too. Warranty: 1 year.

I bought this to go with my new recevier and it didn't work. I bought a new car a couple months later and it works in it so I can plug and play my IPod. My IPod is the 5th Generation with 160 MB.

Best cable you can buy ! [ JODY  Feb 02, 2014 ]
Roland B.- I am unsure as to whether iSimple uLinx iPod connector cable is designed for a/v. I only know it was designed for iPhone and/or iPod and IPads. You should call Norman of Crutchfield, he can answer any & all questions as to fit, adaptability & functionality. I wish I were of more help. Thanks for asking though! Dora [ DORA J  Feb 02, 2014 ]
