Alpines KCE-415i rear seat video interface for iPod lets your passengers enjoy the show without having to crowd around a single iPod screen. This simple interface allows you to view and control your favorite episodes and movies directly from iPod, through the rear seat entertainment monitors. But don't worry about your iPod every dying on you. It charges while it's connected and turns on/off with the car's ignition!

The KCE-415i provides both composite and S-Video output making it perfect for connecting an Alpine overhead monitor. There are three easy ways to control the video functions. One is through the iPod. Use the click-wheel to advance through videos, play/pause, and stop. Second is through the touchscreen. Just set your iPod aside and control your iPod videos from the rear seat entertainment (RSE) screen. Lastly via the remote control. The optional alpine remote control uses all the same functions, just with less reach.

Product Features:
  • Easy to use an iPod video in your car
  • Control main iPod features directly from the MM station or overhead
  • Monitor (Play/Pause, Skip FW/BW), provided the video files are arranged in
  • Control via Head Unit, Remote control or iPod
  • Search function via iPod or Remote control
  • KCE-415i interface will be controlled as external DVD source
  • iPod will be switched on/off with ignition
  • To start just press PLAY on the Monitor or on the Remote control
  • The iPod should be installed visible in the car to see the menu during use
  • The iPod's Battery will be charged while connected to the interface
  • Composite or S-Video output
  • Video playback from 5th generation iPod ONLY
  • Will not charge the iPhone 3G, iPod nano 4th generation and the iPod touch 2nd generation without the Scosche PassPORT
  • 1-year warranty

Awesome product!

October 3, 2007

This product provided me with stress-free use of my iPod as I no longer have to hold it and try to navigate my iPod while driving! I have a remote control and I can pretty much drive and control my iPod without any distractions from my driving. This product gets an A+++ from me!!!
