I'm posting this after reading the reviews here and then experiencing first hand the difference on my own x920bt between this and a "regular" iPod cable used with the stock Pioneer USB cable.

Technically, the bad reviews here are correct: You don't actually need this cable to use your iPod/iPhone with your Pioneer HU. If you were sitting on the fence like I was about buying it though, read on:

I do agree with the one star reviews that the cable is too short for what it costs. It is possible to extend it with both a regular USB extension cable and a mini-jack cable extender, but of course you have to buy those. So I knocked off a couple stars for that because this thing should be longer for what you pay.

However, there are 3 things you need to know about using the USB cable that comes with your HU over this one with an iPod/iPhone:

1) Without this cable, you have to plug two cables in to your iPod/iPhone - the dock connector, and a standard mini-audio cable. With this cable you only need to plug in the dock connector. Minor detail but if it's something you are going to use every time you get in the car you'll find one connection better than two over time, I assure you.

2) You need this cable to get video from your iPod/iPhone. If you care about video at all, then this is your only choice. One review mentions the video quality is so-so but I did not find that to be the case - as with all videos on iPods/iPhones the source is everything and good quality videos looked perfectly fine to me; I'll agree that the Pioneer HU doesn't go a great job with marginal sources compared to other displays but that isn't the fault of the cable.

3) And most importantly - as G.

Okay, so for anyone who is trying to figure out if they need this cable or not. You will need it if you are trying to get video from your ipod on your AVH-P3100DVD receiver. If you only want audio, your standard ipod cable will work. I tested with ipod touch 2g, both cables allow control from the receiver or ipod.

It's lame (hence 1 star) because it's too short and this is a ridiculous price to pay for a cable.

Once the cable is plugged in, you will need to change the AUX1 input to ipod. This can be found in the "Initial Menu" that is only accessible after turning the receiver off. Which I couldn't figure out at first and after a lengthy e-mail thread with Pioneer (who could not help) I found by accident.

I bought this cord when I bought my Pioneer AVH P3100 headunit. Amazon and Pioneer make it seem like you NEED to have this cord in order to work an iPod with your headunit-- FALSE! You can simply use the white Apple cord that came with your iPod, or go to Radio Shack and buy a cord for $3 that does the same exact thing!

Besides, the cord works absolutely fine for my iPod Nano, but when I plug in my girlfriend's iPhone, it takes a while for it to recognize it, then while playing, it often skips the songs, and chunks of the song go silent. It's like it's always fill-in-the-blank to the song when the iPhone is connected!

Anyways, don't make the same mistake I made by buying this for $50 when you can get another cord with the same function for so much cheaper..

I'm confused. Why does everyone else's iPod interface cable (whether proprietary or Apple standard) work just fine with only the USB connection, but not Pioneer's? the female end of the data cable coming off the head unit (AVIC Z-110BT in my case) includes an analog mini stereo jack (for standard "AUX" input) and a USB connection. The iPod cable must be connected to both, leaving you with a large, thick, unsightly pair of wires hanging out in your vehicle where one could just as easily have sufficed.

I swear it's like they got the idea ten minutes before going to market with their first iPod-compatible head unit and they haven't revisited the design since. Maybe they don't want to pay for whatever software lisence Apple imposes on developers to code their interface for pure USB connection?? Beats me. It just seems kinda sloppy on their part.

You do not need this cable to use the iPod controls through the Pioneer head unit - the iPod cable that is used for charging and connecting to the computer can be plugged into the USB port at the front of the Pioneer P3100DVD.
Plus, the iPod cable can be purchased at a fraction of the cost.

I have an AVIC BT-Z110 and this cable is necessary if you want the best audio quality. I tried the apple cable and an headphone extension. The quality of the signal sounded worse than FM stereo and my music is all of the highest quality mp3's. You need this cable because it supplies line level audio to the head unit for amplification. The Ipod cable and a headphone extension will degrade the signal because of the headphone amplifier in the ipod, which amplifies the signal, sends it out to the head unit, which amplifies it again. A second amplification degrades sound quality.

I also made the mistake of getting a Cables To Go 35508 4ft iPod-Compatible 3.5mm to Dock Connector Audio Cable. This cable had the Ipod dock connector on one end and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the other. Worthless as the head unit did not recognize the ipod.

This Pioneer cable solved everything. Pure CD quality sound, because it bypasses the ipod headphone amp, and I have full Ipod controls from the head unit. The cable is expensive, but short of making your own cable, I don't think there is a substitute.
