For select JVC radios equipped with a CD changer input, this cable provides a direct audio input from select iPods with a dock connector, and it also charges the iPod while connected. By using the dock connector for audio output, the highest musical sound quality is achieved- much better than any FM transmitter or headphone adapter can provide. The iPod's click wheel controls are still used for song selection, play control, etc.
Compatible with iPod 3G, 4G, 5G, Mini, Nano generations 1, 2 and 3, Photo & Video, but it is NOT compatible with iPhones, iPod Touch or iPod Classic models. This cable does NOT charge iPod models requiring USB (5Volt) charging. For ipod models requiring 5V charging, a charge adapter is available- click here.
Instructions for selecting the JVC radio's external component input to allow the iPod's audio to play:
You can connect an external audio component (in this case an iPod) to the CD changer jack on the rear using the IPOD-JVC. To use the iPod as the playback source, you need to program the component input (which is preset from the factory for CD changer) to external component. The following instructions may vary from model to model, so consult your owner’s manual for the most accurate information.
