VGA + Lightning-Connector Interface Kit: The VGA + Lightning-Connector Interface Kit for select Pioneer DVD receivers uses a VGA solution to gain compatibility with the Apple iPhone 5/5C/5S. The kit includes a Lightning-to-VGA adapter and 6.5' VGA-to-RGB cable to accomplish video transfer and a 20" Lightning-to-USB connector cable for charging the iPhone 5/5C/5S. A Bluetooth connection between the iPhone and the DVD receiver is also required for audio transfer and control.
Compatibility: The CD-IV203 is compatible with the following 2014 Pioneer in-dash DVD receivers (as of 11/27/2013).
Operation: When used with a compatible Pioneer in-dash DVD receiver, this kit enables iPhone 5/5C/5S users to access and control select iPhone 5/5C/5S apps via AppRadio Mode, as well as play and control music and videos stored on the iPhone 5/5C/5S from the receiver's touchscreen display.
How It Works: Video travels from the iPhone 5/5C/5S to the compatible Pioneer receiver via the VGA connector, while the USB connector charges the Apple device. Audio & control is done via the Pioneer receiver's built-in Bluetooth.
