    If your car stereo is a JVC, then this should work just fine for you. It would be best to contact JVC and look up the radio. Once you do, look at the available accessories. If this is on the list, it will do. You are not going to get the On Screen Display, though. You would have to find a kit that charge and connect the Ipod, and I'm not sure JVC makes this. You will get sound though.

SOURCE: diagram for adaptor ks-u57

There's nothing to it--look 'inside' the connector and you'll see three metal contacts close the metal connector (somewhat similar design as a USB jack). The center is common for the line out, and the left/right are the positive for the left and right channels. The metal connector itself is not part of the circuit.
So if you were connecting RCA jacks to it, the outer ('negative') of both RCAs connects to the center contact on the KS-U57, and the center ('positive,' or 'signal') of the left and right RCAs go to the contacts bracketing the center.
KS-U58 and KS-U57 are wired the same.

SOURCE: jvc model kd-g502 in my car it has an ext adaptor

Hi there,
1. Press and hold SEL till the preferred setting mode (PSM) comes up. 2. Scroll through the modes till you see EXT IN (You may need to set CD as the Source to see this.) 3. Adjust the value by moving the knob around the SEL button. 4. You should now see LINE IN.
Good Luck
And let me know how you went?

Ipod touch


Hi,

Do you mean that your PD100 adapter doesn't recognize your new ipod touch?

If yes then i would suggest you to only use the adapter which has been given to you with the ipod touch.Do not use anyother one.If you don't have one it is better to buy another new adapter.

Goodluck

My problem is when I connect my iPod to my head


That usb port is not meant for an ipod it was intended for a usb flash drive with mp3s on it. if you want to use your ipod you will need to get a interface mod, i believe the model number is jvc KS-PD100.. it should have it listed in your manual or you can call up jvc to confirm.

How can I use JVC AVX810 with Iphone? Currently IPOD works fine with the USB cable but IPHONE is not recognised. Maybe there is an adaptor that can solve it?


JVC KS-PD100 iPod Interface Adapter (257KSPD100, sold separately). This optional iPod Interface Adapter supports audio playback for the following iPod models - iPod click-wheel (3rd gen), iPod photo (4th gen), iPod mini (1st/2nd gen), iPod nano (1st/2nd/3rd/4th gen), iPod video (5th gen), and iPod classic (80/120/160GB). The KS-PD100 is not compatible with the iPod touch (1st/2nd/3rd gen), iPod nano (5th gen), or iPhone (2G/3G/3GS). This iPod interface will also not charge the iPod nano (4th generation). *Apple firmware updates may change functionality results.

There u go.....

Cant get my iphone / ipod to play with the jvc kd-avx11


According to Crutchfield.com, which does hands-on research, "The KS-PD100 is not compatible with the iPod touch (1st, 2nd generation) or iPhone/iPhone 3G. This iPod interface will also not charge the iPod nano (4th generation)."
I'm currently a victim to this JVC abandonment too.
I'm looking for a 3rd party adapter that may solve this... Jvc better get on the ball because Ipods are moving forward with newer models...
I'll get back to you if I find a compatible adapter..

KS-U58 JVC Input Adapter Cable


Just installed a 'generic' KS-U57 (same as the KS-U58, but terminates in a RCA, $7 on ebay) that has the same black box--except I cracked the black box open and found that it is empty (only contains soldered connections). I imagine that the authentic JVC is the same.
I have a noise problem (engine static), but it is because my mp3 player is charged by the cigarette lighter--unplugging it eliminates the noise, so as far as I can tell, there is no need for a noise filter inside the KS-U57.

Using an external mp3 player on my JVC KD-LX111


You could try using an FM transmitter which plugs into the earphone jack on your Mp3 player, then all you have to do is tune the radio to pick up the transmitters frequency.

Linking an i pod to a Sony CDX-MP40 using the bus input terminal


Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-110IP or an auxiliary input module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-300 The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.
