Terribly designed cord Posted by: from: Des Moines, IA on I was at first confused why I couldn't just use a standard iPod cord to connect the head unit to my iPhone. Then I realized that Kenwood designed the unit only to work with their cord. For some reason they used a dual plug setup that transmits audio/video on one plug and display on the USB portion. So I was a little unhappy even before I spent the $30 on the Kenwood specific cord. After opening the packaging, I quickly realized that the video portion with the headphone jack style plug was twice as long as the USB portion, but they were fused together. So rather than being able to neatly tuck the cord out of sight, I must constantly fight a mess of wires cluttering up the interior of my vehicle. In my particular application, it blocks me from being able to adjust my temperature controls. The cord functions properly, but is an enormous pain to have inside my vehicle. This could all have been avoided if Kenwood had simply put a rear connection for the iPod cord in the DDX418 rather than solely a front USB connection. However, this review is not for the head unit.

A little dated..... Posted by: from: Laurel, MD on The cord works fine however Kenwood needs to conver the apple end of it to the current Apple connector. Not many folks still use 30 pin Apple devices. So you still have do buy a 30 pin adapter from Apple if you have a current generation idevice. And they are $30

Really like this cable Posted by: from: on I really like this cable. It allows me to access Pandora on my phone to play through the head unit in my van. I can be on the road for three to four hours at a time and this makes it more enjoyable being able to choose the exact music I want to listen to.

Outdated Product Posted by: from: Ca on This product is made for high-end car audio decks manufactured in 2013 for iPhone/iPod connection. Unfortunately this is a 30 pin connector for older gen Apple Products and is not compatible the 2013 “lighting” adapter Apple products: Analog vs Digital. Dev’s on both side of the isle did not look forward. Some aspects work while the video does not. There needs to be a defined Compatibility warning to unsuspecting customers. As shown in the image (fuzzy) “This accessory is not supported by this device”

Works with old connection, not lightning Posted by: from: AZ, AZ on Not much to say about a cord. It either works or it doesn't. As far as the audio and iphone control, it picks it up and you can get the album artwork on the screen. Either I haven't figured it out or it doesn't work that way, but I cannot play videos through the cord. The audio goes through, but no picture. I have not tried it with and actual ipod.

works with iphone 4s and kenwood dnx6180 Posted by: from: godfrey,il on I purchased this cable to connect my iphone 4s to my Kenwood DNX6180 head unti. the connections are simple and in my case it was easy to remove the unit make the connection and reinstall my radio. the whole process took me less than 20 minutes. This is a thick quality cable with a sturdy connection at the phone. It allows Pandora to display album titles and information on the DNX6180 screen and allows me to control Pandora from the DNX6180 screen. My only disappointment is that i was hoping this cable would allow me to feed video to the dnx6180 but it does not.
