For select Sony Uni-link equipped radios, this kit provides a direct audio input from select model iPods with a dock connector, and charges the iPod while connected. The IPOD-SONYAUX includes a Uni-link "pigtail" adapter that is required to be plugged into the back of most Sony Uni-link equipped radios, and "fools" the radio into seeing a CD changer connected, allowing audio from the iPod into the radio.
By using the iPod's 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.
