Overview

Our take on the PAC USBDMA6

Extend the rear USB port on your new car stereo to a convenient spot on your dash. Simply plug the male end of this PAC USBDMA6 USB cable extension into the USB port, then use the included dash mount to secure the female end wherever you need it.

Add a USB input where you need it

Extend the rear USB port on your new car stereo to a convenient spot on your dash. Simply plug the male end of this PAC USBDMA6 USB cable extension into the USB port, then use the included dash mount to secure the female end wherever you need it.

For a clean installation

PAC gives you six feet of cable so you can route it through even the trickiest of dashes. The cable's female USB end provides a flush-mount design for permanent installation — simply drill a hole into the spot where you'd like to connect your USB devices, and snap in the end of the cable for a factory look. If you'd rather not drill a hole, just snap that end of the cable into the included mounting bracket, then place the bracket in a good place for quick access to your USB devices. Warranty: 1 year.

Factory Look USB

Jim from Martinsburg, WV on 4/24/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Makes a nice factory looking install and keeps cord clutter from happening.

Pros: Long cord for use almost anywhere in the dash.

Cons: Flush mount would be nicer and more secure with a nut on the back instead of the plastic wings.

Does the job

bruce from NJ on 4/22/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not a bad piece, just not as robust as I had hoped. That said, most plastic auto parts are junk in my opinion. This is better made than the OEM cigarette lighter, for example.

Match's Chevy Gray interior

Anonymous from Lakewood, CO on 4/2/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I hard wired one to the OEM cigarette lighter in my truck and another one to the glove box, to a 2nd phone or a thumb drive with music. The gray match's my Chevy truck dash gray almost perfectly. I have to use some epoxy putty to hold it into the lighter hole, when you pull your USB cable out, it drags the plug out of the dash, but I can fix that with some tweaking.

Clean, permanent, factory look

JP from Potomac, MD on 1/21/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in my 2007 Suburban along with Sony XAV-AX100 as an upgrade to the USB cord provided with the head unit. No regrets buying this for clean ,permanent Android Auto plug-in and factory look. Drilled a hole in the plastic tray directly under the stereo/climate controls in the dash console. I didn't use the included dash mount, because the plug receptacle has tabs that hold the plug firmly in the hole. Brady, my Crutchfield adviser suggested adding this to my purchase. He explained that the USB cord supplied with the Sony unit doesn't have the fitting or mount that would allow a thru-panel installation for a permanent, factory fit.

Pros: Clean, permanent, factory look. Eliminates loose USB cord & clutter

Cons: None

Versatile usb cable

Alan from Arlington, TX on 1/5/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This cable is heavy duty and allows for two different types of mounting: on the supplied external bracket, or snapped into a hole in the dashboard. The extension cable that came with my Sony head unit did not have any kind of mounting, it was just a bare usb plug end. I had to use this PAC cable instead to let me attach it to something.

Pros: heavy duty two mounting types

Cons: none

Features

USB Dash-Mount Cable: The PAC 6' USB Dash-Mount Cable (part # USBDMA6) connects to the rear-panel USB port on the back of your in-dash head unit and provides a convenient connection for your USB memory device.

Note: Fully compatible with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, but should not be used in conjunction with another USB extension cable if your are planning to use CarPlay or Android Auto. The PAC USBDMA6 should be plugged directly into the rear-panel USB port of your receiver (it will replace the USB extension that comes with your receiver; not designed to be used in conjunction with it).

  • Female USB (type-A) Port: The USB extension cable's female USB (type-A) port lets you connect your USB flash memory device.

Mounting Options: The PAC 6' USB Extension Cable with Mounting Bracket offers two mounting options.

  • Flush Mount: The female USB (type-A) port of the USB extension cable features a flush mountable design. You can simply drill a 3/4" hole at the desired mounting location and snap the end of the USB extension cable in for a factory OEM look.
  • Mounting Bracket: The USB extension cables also features a mounting bracket that can be used to mount the USB connector without drilling a 3/4" hole in the vehicle.

First I use Apple play and it works fine, looking at the sony site, they give full support on this device to Android Auto, the only help I can give is to have you check this web site: OK, I can not link to other sites but try to google support androidauto answer This web site is "Set up your Android Auto app" it should have the details you need Mike [ MICHAEL J  Dec 28, 2017 ]
