SOURCE: can i connect ipod adaptor to rca output jacks?

With out an input jack you cannot connect straight to your head unit. The RCA out puts only send a signal out. Your best bet is use an FM transmitter for your Ipod. The sound wont be as good but I can't think of another way with buying a new head unit.

Model-m 255 clarion installed in a pontoon boat. RADIO WAS WORKING JUST FINE, THEN I INSTALLED A (NEW) BATTERY FOR MY BOAT, HOOKED EVERTHING BACK THE SAME WAY. NOW, I HAVE POWER BUT (NO) SOUND...


Disconnect all the speaker leads and then hook one speaker (a new, known to work speaker) up directly to the radio using a short (6"-12") piece of speaker wire. Does that speaker work then?

(all will have one with black/white stripe if all sets have black = ground if all sets white = hot/+

green = rear

purple = rear

Red = Right front

all of this should be on the bottom of the stereo

No ipod connection


I am not sure that you will be able to power the iPod through the sound system. Could you not run a nearby 12VDC plug for power without it looking bad or getting in the way?
This seems more of an iPod issue rather than a Clarion issue. You may be able to get a solution from the iPod Support community with a Google search for iPod Support.

I trust this information proves beneficial.

Clarion vrx485vd wont play videos from iphone when connected


You need a composite video cable to the Clarion Video input. The usual ipod adapter is for audio only. If you have an AV ipod adapter and you still don't have video, the signal is not strong enough for the clarion to see it and you need a 12volt pre amp. you can find them online starting around 25. Hope this helps

I have a Clarion installed in my boat. Sirrius, cd am fm. No jack to plug in iPod. Solution?


FM Modulator.

(clarion makes a hardwire direct connect one)

FM200

You would use a 3.5mm to RCA adapter

There are also battery powerd ones (Belkin)

Either one is used by simply tuning in to an empty (white noise) radio station.

Im assuming the XMD3-RET is not the radio you are inquiring about since you described Sirius as a feature.

Some clarion radios have an AUX input or changer port that can be converted to an ipod cable.

If you reply with a model # i can look it up for you. I am a Clarion Dealer.

Clarion VRX485VD does not want to play Ipod videos


A new cable for iPod playback will be released shortly. It will be called the CCUIPOD2, a software upgrade to your unit may be required.
