The Absolute CD-1200 is equivalent to the Pioneer CD-i200 in functionality and performance, but sold for much less. This iPod control interface is made specifically for the Pioneer AVIC-D3, DEH-P4900iB and DEH-P5900iB units. It is simple. All you have to do is connect one end of the cable to the Pioneer iPod connection port in the rear of the head unit and the other end to the iPod. Then you are set and ready to listen to you iPod! Simple as that. It gives you convenient control and charging for your iPod. The simple one cable connection eliminates the bulky adapter box found with many iPod adapters.

Adapter Specifications

iPod Car Adapter Type
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.

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.
Allows Audio Playback
This means that the connection cable will allow audio to be transferred from the iPod to the head unit.
Allows Video Playback
This means that the connection cable will allow video to be transferred from the iPod to the head unit.
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.
iPod Port
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.

Any iPods/iPhones released after the release date of this product have not been checked by the manufacturer and/or Sonic Electronix for compatibility. We therefore cannot guarantee their compatibilities or incompatibilities, including, but not limited to: playback, video, charging, and response time.

Initially good value, but poor attention to detail

January 22, 2010

The unit is not as well assembled as it should be. There is a metal piece which acts as a collar to hold the wires in a bundle, and it was loose. There are a couple of loose connections in the unit, so sometimes my radio will not recognize my iPod unless I move the cable around again and agian, and sometimes it won't see it at all. The only reason I didn't return this is that it cost less than $10 and i have since traded in the car, the stereo that was in it, and this cable.

Installation was a snap, and when it worked, I really liked it.
