Connect your iPod® or iPhone® to select Pioneer in-dash stereos
Our take on the Pioneer CD-IU51 by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Why worry about carrying your iPod cable with you when you head out to the car? Use this CD-iU51 cable to connect your iPod to your Pioneer car stereo and leave your original iPod USB cable in the house. And you'll enjoy optimal charging speed when your iPod is connected, since this cable will work with newer Pioneer receivers with 1-amp USB outputs. This cable only supports audio playback — it will not transfer video to your receiver. Warranty: 1 year.
its short but well made.
