The KCAIP301V connecting cable gives you high-speed access to the music and video on your Video iPod or iPhone through your compatible 2009-up Kenwood DVD receiver. One end of the cable plugs into your iPod's dock connector; the other end includes a USB cable, a miniplug audio cable, and a miniplug video cable, all of which connect to your Kenwood stereo. The USB cable handles the control and charging of your iPod, so you can navigate through your music files with the Kenwood's controls while you view song info on its display. The miniplug connectors transfer the music and video from your iPod to the stereo's audio and video inputs. Music and video images travel to your stereo as analog signals, so you can even play the Digital Rights-protected files stored on your iPod.
