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

This came free with my radio, so to me it was a great value, but: This thing has a thick cord! Along with its length, it's hard to find where to store all the excess cable. I don't know why they couldn't just make it so it charges the ipod too, that is silly. Other than that, it works the way a cord should. Wish it was thinner and shorter.

iPod Connection Works Perfectly after Expensive Expert Installation

June 27, 2010

This iPod connection to the Strada Panasonic radio system (CN-NVD905U) works beautifully after it is installed, provided you read the Strada manual and can afford the installation. I can listen to my iPod, switch tracks, pause it (using the Audio off button on the SRCE screen), shuffle, etc. and switch back to the Navigator by clicking the Map button. The major downside is that you have to have an expert install the connection, which cost me $130 at a Tiffin RV Dealer. That's much more expensive than the cable itself. However, it's the BEST solution for those of us who want to use an iPod for entertainment while driving a Tiffin Motorcoach.

Great product

May 10, 2010

I bought this to go with my Panasonic head unit and it was the perfect compliment to my iPod Nano. The only bad thing is that due to the generation gap of the iPod, this cable does not facilitate the charging of the Nano (latest gen.) but all in all it is still a great idea for those Panasonic unit owners.

Never Use Cd's Again

October 3, 2007

I bought this because My panasonic deck was skipping with certain frequencies, and now with the ipod connected to the deck, It hasn't skipped yet !, which is fantastic. The ease of use of this is a piece of cake, just control the deck to go through your ipod, very simple! Plus you won't have to burn mp3 cds every so often, just change your music everynight !

Nice!

I have this hooked up to the 7" Panasonic dvd deck. It is incredible how easy it is to use the functions of my Ipod through the touch screen of my deck. This Ipod hook-up is the second best purchase, aside from the deck.

It does what it's supposed to do, as simple as that. I've owned a standard Panasonic deck, and now I have a 6.5" DVD player. It works great with both. While this piece of equipment isn't pretty visually, it's a piece of audio bliss. The length allows you to place your IPod where ever you please.
