Quality cable, but bulky and can't be used with a dock
on April 29, 2012
Bought this and an Iphone cradle with the hope of being able to put the phone in an easy-to-use cradle when driving as some navigation apps for appRadio require input from the phone as well as the head unit.
Problem is, the Pioneer cord is so bulky, I couldn't use the cradle with it. Ok, so I'll use a 30-pin extender to fix things. 3 extenders later, it's pretty clear the Pioneer cord is not interested in extending.
At this point I may have to hack up the cradle and bondo this cord into it. Not idea, and certainly not visually appealing. I understand the need to have a heavier cable to accommodate appMode (after all it's plugging into a 20-pin connection + USB) but it is frustrating that they didn't take cradles into account when designing the connector.
