Jensen jLinkUSB Cable
Connect your iPod® to a compatible Jensen multimedia receiver
Our take on the Jensen jLinkUSB Cable by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Jensen's jLinkUSB cable connects your iPod to select Jensen multimedia receivers with a USB input. The cable plugs into your iPod's dock connector and then into the USB input of your stereo, giving you full audio playback and control from the Jensen. Some models will require you to also plug in the cable's mini-jack connection for video playback.
Your Jensen stereo will display text information like song category, track name, and artist on its video screen while you listen. And, with most iPods, the cable charges your battery while it's connected. Warranty: 30 days.
Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter.

Overview: The Jensen jLink-USB cable (jLINK-USB) allows you to connect select 30-pin iPods & iPhones to select Jensen 2010 multimedia head units through the head unit's included MediaLink module (using both the USB port and AV 3.5mm input). Once an iPod is connected, you can playback audio/video content from your iPod on your compatible Jensen multimedia head unit. The Jensen head unit will display text information such as song, track or artist name from your connected iPod. You can directly control audio functions of your iPod from the head unit's touchscreen or supplied IR remote. During audio playback of your iPod, the iPod's controls will be locked. Your iPod is also charged when it is connected to your Jensen head unit. The jLink-USB cable, when connected to a compatible Jensen 2010+ multimedia head unit, is "Made for iPod/iPhone" compatible and supports the following iPod/iPhone model features (as of 10/10/2012):
|iPod/iPhone||Generation||Tested Version||Media Type||Control Type||Display Type||Charge|
|Audio||Video||Head Unit||iPod/iPhone||Song/Artist Text||Track Info||Album Art|
- Not compatible with newer iPod/iPhone devices with a Lightning connector.
- 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.

I don't know if that is possible, I bought it to use for mp3 and ipod so I never tried anything like what you are intending. The navigation does work well. [ Peter May 25, 2016 ]
