    Pioneer AVH-P3400BH Car DVD Receiver

    • Written by from Montgomery

    This Apple cable connected my iPhone 6 to the Pioneer Cable CD-IU51V, designed to connect iPhone 4/4S to this Pioneer Car DVD Receiver. This cable has a 30 pin connector on one end, and both a USB and a RCA earplug mini pin on the other. Result-This Pioneer Car DVD Receiver controls audio on the iPhone 6, shows song title, artist, album information, and album artwork just as is done for my iPhone 4. I do not have any video on either my iPhone 4 or 6, so I cannot comment. But, other Apple reviews states this cable will not show video. Four stars selected due to cable price.

    Works great but first cable was faulty

    • Written by from Auckland

    I bought this adapter cable to connect my iPhone 6 to my car's iPod interface and it works great - outputs music, Spotify and even turn-by-turn Google map navigation over the cars' speakers. But this was not before a whole lot of frustration! The first cable I bought turned out to be faulty. I tried it in my car, home theatre, alarm dock and computer and could only get a "device not supported" error message. I wasn't sure if the adapter simply couldn't do what I wanted, or if my devices were too old and incompatible. It was only after getting a replacement cable which worked flawlessly that I knew for sure the first one was faulty. I see others have had similar problems and expect, at this expensive price, Apple would test their cables before distributing them. If you have problems make sure to get a replacement before writing the adapter option off altogether.

    Worked flawlessly.

    • Written by from Maricopa

    I just purchased this adapter to interface between my iPhone 5s and JVC KD-PDR50 car stereo. While initially hesitant, I was thrilled to find the adapter worked as expected. A lot of the negative reviews are focused on the cord length. However, my stereo cord was already sufficient. All I required was the adapter. It is a bit pricey given it's basic function. Reminds me of the gold plated monster cables Best Buy used to try to sell you. Otherwise, I consider it a solid purchase.

    Works great -- with a catch

    • Written by from Santa Clara

    I needed this adapter to connect my iPhone 6 (and previously 4S) to the head unit in my car via a third-party interface (details below). It works flawlessly for audio. However, as I first discovered with the iPhone 4S, while audio works great, charging does not. This is due to the fact that newer iPhones (4S and later?) do not support charging via Firewire, and the older third-party interface to my car's head unit outputs power on the Firewire pins.

    In order to resolve this, I first used the Griffin "FireWire to USB Charging Converter (3031-FWUSB -- no longer available?)" to reroute power from the Firewire to the USB pins in the standard 30-pin connector. This works perfectly, even if it does mean there's now another adapter inline. The important thing is, I have power to charge the iPhone *and* pristine, line-level audio output from my phone directly into the head unit amp in my car. The sound quality is outstanding, beating every available alternative.

    My exact setup is as follows:
    1999 Volvo C70 > SC-901 head unit (Alpine) > Blitzsafe VOL/M-LINK1V.1 wired interface > Griffin Firewire-USB adapter > Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter > iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6

    I will be setting up the same configuration in my 1999 Volvo wagon, but will use the Scosche passPORT Charging Adapter in place of the Griffin product, as the latter appears to have been discontinued.

    Pretty decent

    • Written by from West Lafayette

    I got the cable one because the smaller block one won't fit into in wall docks. Tried to plug it into my iPhone, the plastic end is thicker than a standard lightning cable and wouldn't fit in my life proof iPhone 6 case, so I had to get out my knife and sandpaper, but at the end ended up completely removing the plastic cover for the Lightning end, exposing the bare metal and hot glue, but now it fits in my case and is securely tight. Dear god that was a lot of work just to be able to use my phone in a dock �� not to mention I had to modify a $30 dollar product with a knife but who cares about the money. It works and thats all I care about now

    Works Wonderfully

    • Written by from Leslie Vale

    I upgraded to an iPhone 5 and unfortunately, my iPod dock became redundant because of the different connectors. Thankfully, this adapter let me charge my iPhone and use the music controls on my dock. Only reason I gave it 4 stars was the price tag.

    Works in Automobiles.

    • Written by from Manahawkin

    The cable has restored full functionality for both my iPhone 5s and 5c in our Mercedes. The cars still have the 30 pin connectors. Audio passes through, and the phones charge. Knocked one star off for price.

    VW iPod convertor

    This works in my 07 VW golf to convert my iPod connector in my arm rest to play music via my radio. I have an iPod gen 5. Is expensive but it is just the right size for my car.

    Works perfectly in my Audi Q5 with MMI.

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Wanted the cable to interface with my audio system in my 2012 Audi Q5, and this cable does the job.

    I'm going to take it with me when I'm traveling (frequently) as pretty much every hotel alarm clock has the 30 pin plug.

    Just deducting a star for the extortionate price. For what this is it really should be $19 maximum. It's a shame how horribly we're gouged as Apple consumers.

    It works nicely

    • Written by from Leesburg

    After reading some of the reviews, I was more than a little wary. I presumed that Apple would take it back, if it didn't connect my iPhone 5S to the old 4S connector on the top of my iHome radio. That radio has nice sound playing my own iPhone music or playing my Classical SiriusXM channels "Pop" or "Symphony" music.
    It works well.
    I would like to have had another 18-20 inches for the price.

    If you get one that works it is fine!

    • Written by from Otaki

    I have had 4 of these now! Two eventually worked but two did not but were replaced by Apple. If you get a working one, great!
    Don't be concerned about getting one replaced. I suspect they had faulty batch.

    Minus a star for the price... Works with my 2011 Hyundai i30

    • Written by from New Barnet

    I bought this so that I could hook up my iPhone 5 with my car stereo and have full functionality such as the stereo screen displaying song name, album name, etc; the steering wheel buttons working with volume and song selection and other treats. I am happy to say that this has worked flawlessly and I'm really pleased. This then allows me to connect the adapter to the car's bespoke MP3 wire and I'm a very happy man. Long journeys are now going to be a real treat.

    Does the job

    • Written by from LONDON

    Rarely write a review but there are too many ambiguous comments. Works with a bmw USB / aux 30pin car adaptor perfectly. Agreed the £10 more for about 6 inches of wire is steep (£25 for adaptor; £35 for the adaptor with cable). The difference is that fixed with the original 30pin lead, one can control the phone easily while plugged in rather than via the car system. Helps with spotify and soon to be released iTunes Radio. Hope this helps.

    Works as expected

    Adapter cable works well, charging and audio as expected using iphone 5s. Also it does fit fine with 5s leather case on. Only negative is the price, but got mine £10 cheaper from high street catalogue store.

    Expensive, but it works

    • Written by from Meridian

    I bought this to connect my iPhone 5S to a USA Spec PA15-HON2 iPod/iPhone interface for my 2007 Honda Odyssey. The other Lightning to 30-pin adapter did not fit my iPhone case, but this cable works great, and all features I expected work correctly (audio, charging and steering wheel controls). Construction quality look to be top-notch, with a secure connection on both ends. While I don't mind paying extra for quality, the current price is still too high (thus, minus one star). Still, probably the only option available if you need to connect older devices to your Lightning device...

    Worked as expected, but pricey even for Apple

    • Written by from Coral Springs

    I bought this because I have a $400 Sony speaker dock that I love cause it has really good sound quality, but has a 30 pin dock connector that can't be swapped out with a lightning connector (thanks Sony). So rather than spend $300-$400 on a new dock, I figured I'd get this cable. To my surprise despite what people said on here I was able to control my iPhone (play, pause, next song, previous song, menu navigation) with my speaker dock remote which is great. The cable was a little shorter than I expected but works well. I didn't get the 29.99 adapter because I didn't want my iPhone's lightning port being stressed as it was standing on top of the dock and adapter and risk the lightning tip being snapped off in the port. So overall a great product, but over priced.

    Does the job but at a high price.

    • Written by from Leamington Spa

    Purchased this after I got my iPad Air as I wanted to use the link with my 30 pin cable with my Mac. The product is good and does the job well. I am able to use it with my iPad Air still in it's case (the case is a Griffin case) and sync with no problems.

    When it comes the the length, it's perfect for me. Does come as a very HIGH price sadly.

    Works on my Dock Charger

    • Written by from Pompano Beach

    Not sure why this product did not get a lot of good reviews. I just recently purchased the Ipod Nano 7th generation and was very disappointed to see it was not dock capable like my 4th generation. I went and purchased this and it works great. The only downfall I see is it Ipod rests on base of dock and not standing up. Yet that is not an issue for me. I just wanted to enjoy my Ipod music in my dock and it does. The $40 is kinda of expensive yet I would of had to spend more money getting another Ipod AND this adapter or go with the classic .

    Works with 5S and Sony Dock

    • Written by from Holly Springs

    This works with my new 5S and my old Sony ICF-CS15iP Audio Dock. All controls are preserved and the app on the phone works as well, when connected. Like most reviewers, I wish the cable was a little longer and a little less expensive.
    I saw a reviewer that stated that the DAC was built in the cable which is what makes it more expensive than the other ones that don't carry audio or that have to use the headphone jack on the connector. Regardless, I'm happy....
