The Kenwood KCA-iP300V iPod connection cable gives you high-speed access to the music and video for your Video iPod through your compatible 2007-up Kenwood in-dash DVD head unit. One end of the cable plugs into your iPod while the other end includes a USB cable, a 3.5mm miniplug audio cable, and a 3.5mm miniplug video cable, all of which connect to your Kenwood inputs.

The USB cable handles the control and charging of your iPod and it allows you to navigate through your music files with the Kenwood's controls. It also passes song info to the display of the Kenwood receiver as well as other playback details. The miniplug connectors transfer the music and video from your iPod to the Kenwood receiver's audio and video inputs. A great feature with the KCA-iP300V is that music and videos travel to your stereo as analog signals, which allows you to also play the Digital Rights-protected files you have stored on your iPod through your Kenwood stereo.

Note: Your 2007-up Kenwood DVD receiver must have a USB input, an auxiliary input, and a miniplug video input in order to work with this cable.

MUST HAVE FOR KENWOOD IPOD USERS

August 16, 2009

If your stereo has this option, get this! I dont even use cd's anymore. I ran this from my stereo to my glovebox, now my ipod is hidden and I have full control through my dnx7140. Music and video play flawlessly.

Used with my DDX512 in my Tacoma. But the interface cable is a must for getting full ipod support. Best interface I've seen. Awesome product.

So Cool.

July 31, 2008

basically you put your Ipod on this...it locks yours ipod and you can pretty much forget about it. cause on the screen in your vehicle it shows... Artists Songs Albums Playlists and so on...and it even chargers the ipod for you. its so cool. and simple. honestly i think this makes it easier to use your ipod on your stereo than on the actual ipod. its really cool, get one.
