cheap buy

January 10, 2012

I've gotten 2 of these cables now because the iPod end of the cable the plastic peace kept on splitting and breaking off even with moderate to light use. So the second time I wrapped it with electrical tape to hold it together even after it split and it still works fine. Would definitely recommend a diff cable especially if you use it a lot.

Does not work

December 27, 2011

Product does not work with iPhone, however it comes in handy for my kids iPod while sitting on the couch. Able to have continuous play without recharging due to its length.

iPod connector

March 23, 2010

Needed to connect iPod to KOS-A300. The original cable would have worked, but I wanted black so it could blend into my interior a little better. Sonics great price didn't hurt either.

I love my Kenwood KCA-IP101

February 22, 2010

I bought my kenwood about six months ago and love it. The graphics are wonderful. It's so easy to use. The GPS is great, I rarely have trouble with it. The touch screen is a bit sensitive so that took getting used to. Other than that, I can't think of any other cons. Truly a great system.

Handy to have a backup..

December 16, 2009

You should probably just buy this thing, because I am always losing mine taking my IPOD indoors and back to my car. It's really nice to have two cables!
