Excerpt: This is the cable required to use your iPod/iPhone to the fullest potential of the Kenwood DNN990HD Navigational System. If your iPod/iPhone has the newer (smaller) plug, remember to also get the 30-pin to lightning adapter. Works Great.
Conclusion: I got a new head unit and this cable is needed just to have video out for my kenwood ddx370, i really didn't need it cuz i am not gonna watch netflix while going down the road, i like the durability of the cable, and i did put an extension usb cable onto it to make it longer and it works no problem, the only reason i bought this was to have netflix and waze and hbogo and any other app with video out on my head unit, otherwise if your not so worried about it a regular...
Conclusion: It's nice to no longer have a useless disk player taking up room on my deck. It's also nice to have the phone info displayed on the deck - including album art. I just have two criticisms: The layout on the screen doesn't make sense; they should group the time/date together and the music info together. Also, why in the world would they require TWO cords?! I have to plug into the main iPhone 5 port ... AND the headphone jack.
Conclusion: I recently got a new kenwood system installed in my 2010 XTR I later found out I couldn't play my iPod with out the adapter cable. sonic was able to help me with the cable I found. it works great and clean looking not a mess of cables. I would strongly recommend. quick and simple install, gives hours of enjoyment.
Conclusion: Using this cable with a Kenwood DNX7190HD In-Dash Navi. Pros: Item works as described providing excellent audio and video. Cons: The size/thickness of the iPod Interface Cable is too large for my taste, making it more difficult to manage its excess length in vehicles with smaller glove compartments.
Conclusion: However, I found it to be a bit cumbersome. It's size and thickness coupled with length made it too large and bulky, thus making it more difficult to manage the excess in a vehicle that has a small glove compartment. Highly recommend it! But zip ties are your friend if you have a small cable run and even smaller glove compartment.
