Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Ordering through Apple or trying to purchase at local Apple Store was too difficult. I'm a loyal Crutchfield customer, [ Harold  Dec 25, 2017 ]
Better than the one piece adapter because it places less stress on the iPod / iPhone connection. [ David  Dec 03, 2017 ]
Connect 2009 Mercedes C300 30 pin charger to iPhone 5 [ James  Nov 16, 2017 ]
iSimple doesn't make a serial>Lightning adapter. :) [ Ben  Aug 09, 2017 ]
i liked the length of cable and quality of product. price was decent to. [ scott  Jan 01, 2017 ]
for my daughter's car [ Daniel A.  Dec 24, 2016 ]
Needed to adapt car receiver accessory to new iPhone. [ Michael  Nov 27, 2016 ]
All of my Apple devices have lightening connectors. The cable looks like it will be less bulky than the adapter that would have to plug in right at the device. [ Jeremy  Oct 01, 2016 ]
I needed a means to connect my iPhone 5's Lightning Connector to my 2010 Mercedes M-Class' iPod pin connector to play songs through the car's stereo. According to the description and the positive reviews, this adapter harness should work. Thanks, Rob [ Robert  Sep 19, 2016 ]
There are many Apple adapters with different capabilities. Some support audio and some don't, etc. I can always trust Crutchfield to have exactly what I need. [ Harold  Apr 06, 2016 ]
Similar less expensive (china imitation) product would not work. I purchased this product to allow streaming of Pandora music from my iPhone to my car. My phones protective cover prevented me from inserting the "non-corded" version of the Lightening to 30 Pin adapter into my phone (without taking off the protective cover). [ Daryl  Feb 27, 2016 ]
Want to 30 pin speakers with my new iPhone. [ Lorna  Jan 30, 2016 ]

Yes it does [ CHRISTOPHER R  May 26, 2015 ]
yes [ Robert  May 26, 2015 ]
It does for us. We have it between an iPhone 5 and an older Kenwood receiver. [ gregg  May 25, 2015 ]
Shawn, Yes it does both. I bought one to play from my iPhone to an old Bose SoundDock. Plays and charges at the same time. [ PAUL A  May 25, 2015 ]
