iPod Connector Cable for Pioneer Stereos (via CD Changer plug). This cable is great for customers who do not want to spend $89.99 for the Pioneer CD-IB100II which provides complete track name, etc. This cable is less expensive, sacrifices a few control features, but still provides a clean sound connection for your iPod to your Pioneer head unit. The Pioneer head unit must have CD changer controls as this cable connects through the CD Changer port. Same as American International NC-iPIO.

  • Connector cable for compatible Pioneer radios through the CD Changer plug
  • Provides a clean connection between the iPod and head unit
  • Head unit must have CD Changer control for the connector to function
  • The Apple iPhone 3G, iPod Nano 4th Gen, iPod Touch 2nd Gen, and any other newly released iPods can be controlled using the iPod adapter above; however, charging will not be possible unless you purchase the Scosche IFWA PassPORT charging adapter.

Adapter Specifications

iPod Car Adapter Type
These are the types of stereos that the iPod connection cable will be compatible with. Some are designed to work with factory/OEM radios, while others are for use with aftermarket stereos.
Aftermarket Stereos
Compatible Brands
This is the manufacturer(s) that the item is compatible with. Unless it is universal, usually the item will only be compatible with the same manufacturer.

For example, a JVC Bluetooth adapter will only work with JVC units. A Pioneer iPod adapter will only work with Pioneer head units.

Pioneer
Provides a Charge
This means that the cable will provide a charge to the iPod or iPhone while it is connected. On some cables that provide a charge, a power and ground connection will be required.
No
Allows Audio Playback
This means that the connection cable will allow audio to be transferred from the iPod to the head unit.
Yes
Allows Video Playback
This means that the connection cable will allow video to be transferred from the iPod to the head unit.
No
Cable Connection Port
This is how the cable connects to the aftermarket receiver. Some units use a USB connection, while other use the manufacturer specific port.
IP-BUS
Compatible Apple Devices
This list refers to the Apple devices that the product is compatible with.

Some Car stereos are compatible with iPods and/or iPhones. If the headunit can connect to an iPod or iPhone via USB or iPod connection cable, these listed iPods are compatible. This list does not apply if the iPod is being connected through the 3.5mm mini-jack plug. Newer iPods are usually compatible if the appropriate adapters are purchased and used.

Any iPods/iPhones released after the release date of this product have not been checked by the manufacturer and/or Sonic Electronix for compatibility. We therefore cannot guarantee their compatibilities or incompatibilities, including, but not limited to: playback, video, charging, and response time.

Great investment for your sound system...

May 9, 2010

This very inexpensive adapter is a must have even if you just have a Pioneer deck and no aftermarket speakers or subs. Its interface is easy to use and plays off your existing iPod settings (random, repeat, etc.). It is very easy to install (about 2 minutes if you have the keys to take the deck out), as it just plugs in and you're ready to get rid of the hassle of changing CDs, and have a hands-free device for safety on the road. It is just a cable, and not a bulky box like other adapters. Check your Pioneer manual to make sure it has the right connection in the back of the deck (most mid-range and up decks from the last 4-5 years should have it). I recommend routing the cable to the glovebox for security. While self-made mp3 CDs are ok, they only allow about 200 songs. With the iPod adapter, you can have potentially thousands of songs ready to go. Access playlists already on your iPod. It even charges your iPod while plugged in. The only bad thing I have to say is the annoyance of scrolling to find the right artist or song if you have a lot of music. But other than that, I would, and have recommended this product to everybody with a compatible Pioneer deck, as it is a less complicated interface than other complex, bulky systems. As far as sound quality, of course it's not quite as good as audio CDs, but the custom equalizer on your compatible Pioneer deck can be adjusted to make it far more than adequate. Buy this adapter! It's cheap and well worth it!

What more do you need?

January 4, 2010

Have an older Pioneer DEH-7400MP deck and this install was a snap. Spliced into the power and ground to the head unit and ran cable behind dash. Works as advertised and all for $15. Would be nice to be able to control the Ipod from the deck but like I said. $15! I would highly recommend this for an inexpensive way to play your Ipod through an older deck.

It works well for the older iPods

November 18, 2011

I purchased this in the hopes it would allow me to connect my iPhone 4 to my old Pioneer radio. Reading what it said it was compatible with lead me to believe it should work as any accessory that works with the iPhone 3g works with the iPhone 4. However this was not the case. I do use it on a daily basis with my old iPod Video but I still wish I could use my phone with Pandora. All in all it is worth the money and works brilliantly with what it's made for.

I think I would have purchased this product even if I knew it wouldn't work with my iPhone just because of the cost.

works good for the price

July 7, 2009

this product worked very well for me in my jeep. it did take me a couple trys to splice it into the right wire, but it did work when i spliced the fuse wire into the main power wire on the back of my CD player with the fuse on it too. i also had to make the AUX function capable on my headunit by holding in some buttons while it was off. i had the guys at my local car audio store help me. they just told me what buttons to push, i didnt have to pay them to do it. i would recomend to get the adapter to charge your ipod as well though too.

Works Perfect!

December 22, 2008

Installed this in a older Pioneer head unit and it works perfect! No complaints whatsoever. Simply plugged in the one end into the head unit, tapped into some power, ground a wire, and put everything back together. That was it! Easy installation and now i can listen to the iPod in the car! Plus it charges the iPod too!!! Its perfect!
