This PAC iC-PIOP iPod adapter charges your iPod and sends the music signal from your iPod to select Pioneer car stereos. You get the best possible sound from your iPod and it stays fully charged. Because the iC-PIOP is not the direct "iPod adapter" by Pioneer, you'll continue to use the iPod's controls to select your tunes, not the head unit.

The adapter cable works with any dockable iPod. Your Pioneer car stereo must have a P-bus connection for optional equipment, like a CD changer or satellite radio. A 1-year warranty is included.

Note: This adapter does NOT provide control of the iPod from the stereo's faceplate and song titles are not transferred to the stereo's display. If you prefer to have those features, Pioneer offers an iPod control interface, the Pioneer CD-IB100ii, which works with most 2005-up Pioneer stereos that have CD changer controls. 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.
  • Plug and play installation
  • Compatible with Pioneer radios featuring an auxiliary audio input in the back
  • Routes iPod audio to the radio
  • Charges iPod battery

Adapter Specifications

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.
Yes

This means that the connection cable will allow audio to be transferred from the iPod to the head unit.
Yes

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.

Not Bad For the Money

January 17, 2010

My iPod touch comes through loud and clear on my Pioneer stereo. Installation was pretty easy and everything works like it's supposed to. The only negative is that it isn't fully compatible with Gen2/3 iPods or iPhones. An adapter is required in order to be able to charge them.

I have bought this PAC iC-PIOP connector for my pioneer system and it was damn easy to install. I'm extremely happy with different connection options that were provided with this cable like ipod connectivity, auxiliary pin and component stereo inputs. Lets me connect almost all music players. Thats for its elegant and sturdy design, its definitely meant to last longer and haven't had any problems since last 6 months. The audio is damn clear. Totally changed the way my speakers sound now. Thanks Sonic for selling me a good product for reasonable price.

Connects my iPod to my Pioneer head unit. Connection to iPod is not 100% secure, so if the iPod moves, sound crackles. Outer vinyl casing is very stiff so it does not allow for easy flex (makes the crackle problem worse). As far as sound otherwise, works really good as it is a direct connection to the stereo, not a poor quality FM transmitter.

This product is great. However it had a loose connection in it when I bought it before I even used it. I was able to solder the wire that was bad so I have loved it.

Great way to get mp3 players on an older headunit

July 4, 2010

Very sturdy construction. Has multiple inputs. I currently have this installed through the glove box of a Jeep Wrangler and close the cord in the box without any damage to the cable. I use this product with an iPhone 2G 16GB. I get the "This product is not designed for your phone" error when I plug in, however, if I hit "ignore" it works fine. I am able to use my iPod functions and still have access to data and incoming calls/txts. I also hooked up the power cable directly to a 12V lead so I can charge my phone when the vehicle is off.

PAC-iC-PIOP

June 13, 2010

This product charges our iPod and allows it to play through some Pioneer car stereos. It works just as advertises. The only difficulty is using the product is finding where the vehicle manufacturer hides the various Pioneer audio components. Once located, it is an easy plug and play to use the audio interface. Finding a ground and appropriate 12 VDC line are equally easy, especially if using "T" taps. This direct connect wire works much better than the wireless and cassette alternatives. Great product but expensive if you don't shop around. Use the picture to ID the cable and use Ebay to find the best price.
