Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a Kenwood KVT514 system. I want to connect my ipod touch to the system and have purchased the needed connector. I have connected the usb, audio and video inputs, but for some reason the plug-in into my ipod causes the ipod to continuously beep like it is connecting and disconnecting constantly. Is it the chord or have I not installed it properly?

The only thing you should connect is the cable adaptor - KCA-IP301V - so remove the headphones cable and make sure the data cable is firmly plugged in. Also make sure the latest firmware is installed. Finally connect the IPod when it unpowered and find out if it recognizes that its connected when you power it on.
If you get the same result then the data cable is defective, replace it.

I just bought a Kenwood KDC-MP439 and the box says made for ipod........ But i dunno how to use the feature...... Help!!!!!


This particular model is advertised as being "made for iPod," but this claim is a bit misleading. Most decks advertised this way mean "iPod ready," but require you to purchase an additional accessory to use that functionality.

In the case of the KDC-MP439, you can use your iPod with the deck by connecting the iPod to the AUX connection on the right side of the faceplate. Making this connection will require you to purchase a cord with 3.5mm male audio connectors on both ends (it's the same connector on your headphones that plugs into the iPod's headphone jack, only you'll need one with that connector on both ends of the cord).

If you'd like to take advantage of the wireless Bluetooth functionality of the iPod, you will need an iPod Touch (2G, 3G, or 4G versions) and the Kenwood accessory KCA-BT100. This component adds hands-free Bluetooth functionality to your stereo. You can find this module at many locations in a range of prices. For example, eBay has them for prices as low as $39.99 (may be a minimum bid for an auction-type listing; be sure to check the listing type if you go this route). Online retailers seem to vary between $99.99 and $150 or so. These will include a manual that should provide instructions for pairing your iPod with the stereo unit.

If you find this information helpful, please remember to give this solution a positive rating!

How do I connect my iPod to a stereo Kenwood


<p>The superior audio quality thanks to the Kenwood stereo system is as good as any on the market. However, many of Kenwood audio receivers contain no iPod connection port.

But that does not mean you cannot high-quality audio through your stereo Kenwood iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Put your Kenwood stereo. Connect devices with the stereo turned on may lead to spikes in volume that can damage the speakers and even your ears. Turn up the stereo, so you can use the set of connectors on the back to see. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of 3.5 mm 3.5 mm to RCA cable for the headset from your iPod. If you do not have a cable 3.5mm to RCA, you can buy one of the sound equipment stores or electronics stores like Radio Shack. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the RCA end to your cable 3.5mm to RCA in an available port on the back of your Kenwood stereo. Put your Kenwood stereo, so you can access the buttons on the front. Turn the sound and select the channel of your iPod is connected. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Test the connection.

If you hear no sound, check the "Monitor CD2/TAPE2" is active, and "Mute" is off <br />

The iPod comes with a cable with a wide-connector at the end that connects to the iPod, and a standard USB-connector at the other end, that connects into any USB port on your computer.

I cannot install music from my computor to my Ipod 4 nano


If you can't connect iPod nano to your computer , make sure;
  • you have installed the latest iTunes software from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
  • Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer. Note: A USB 2.0 port is recommended to connect iPod nano. USB 1.1 is significantly slower than USB 2.0. If you have a Windows PC that doesn’t have a USB 2.0 port, in some cases you can purchase and install a USB 2.0 card. For more information, go to www.apple.com/ipod.
  • iPod nano might need to be reset (see page 64).
  • If you’re connecting iPod nano to a portable or laptop computer using the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the computer to a power outlet before connecting iPod nano.
  • Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to double check the system requirements” on page 68.
  • Check the cable connections. Unplug the cable at both ends and make sure no foreign objects are in the USB ports. Then plug the cable back in securely. Make sure the connectors on the cables are oriented correctly. They can be inserted only one way.
  • Try restarting your computer.

Ipod touch connector


Hello serafineb,

The Alpine Full Speed cable for the iPod supports the following versions:

Fourth generation iPod
Fifth generation iPod
iPod photo
iPod mini
iPod nano

According to their website it does not appear that Alpine currently has a cable for the iPod touch. They do, however, make a "generic" cable for most MP3 players that connects directly to the earphone jack. Although this would not allow you to control the iPod from your stereo's head unit, you should be able to connect the iPod touch via this cable to play music through your car stereo.

More information about the "generic" cable can be found here.

Best Regards,
Ken
