My DEH-P690UB doesn't read my ipod

It is supossed that my pioneer premier DEH-P690UB can control an Ipod through it's USB port, but when I connect it it reads " N/A USB ". According to the manual it means that those devices cannot be used with the unit's USB port. I don't have any problem with the USB Flash memories, it can read the music from every single flash drive I've tried. Hope somebody can help me to solve this problem because the user's manual or troubleshooting guide doesn't say anything about it. Thanks beforehand.

Re: my DEH-P690UB doesn't read my ipod

I spoke with my friend at local car audio shop, apparently even though they don't say so pre-5g ipods are not supported without the ipod adapter box. I think I paid like $30 bucks for it and now my mini works fine with the deck.

Is your ipod a nano or video model? Early generation ipods are not supported.

How to set it to play with and Ipod

After researching your model DEH-P470MP, it appears that to use an iPod, you need an adapter that plugs into the rear port of the unit intended for a multi-cd changer connection.
If you have one installed and it's not working, I would check the connection on the unit. Make sure the cable is firmly seated in the port and then check the cable and also check for any fuse in the line to make sure it's not blown out.
Also some of the earlier models of ipod adapters aren't compatible with the newer generations of ipods. There are aftermarket adapter plugs that will allow your ipod to charge/play off these earlier decks/adapters.

Can I hook up my Ipod to this sterio, A deh-1800

This radio has no IP-Bus (Pioneer's peripheral plug in) plug on the back of the unit or any connection for USB or 1/8" stereo headphone jack on it. You will not be able to conect an iPod to this unit. Visit the website at to see their current iPod solutions. They have multiple head units that allow for you to charge iPod and iPhones as well and give you control through the head unit or through the iPod itself.

Help with ipod connection to cd player

You must use 1 of 3 methods to connect your iPod
1. FM modulator to wirelessly broadcast on a low FM band
2. iPod 3.5mm male/male direct connect cable.
3. iPod USB connection - with Pioneer iPod adapter module.

The direct connect 3.5mm port is on the back of the unit. One plugs into the radio - one plugs into the iPod headphone port.

Pioneer DEH-P6900UB iPod Control

My suggestion is that the ipod-connector is bad. Try changing the ipod connector. If that doesn't work, unplug your Pioneer device for 24 hours, and then plug it back in. This will reset all the configuration options and should reset the devices that it recognizes. If that doesn't work, try calling Pioneer's support.

Good luck!
