What limited info there is about this part on the web and in the product, it wouldn't support my 3g 40GB iPod when connected to my Pioneer 6900UB head unit. I also have an iPod mini (1st generation) that didn't work either... not a cable problem most likely, but a lame undocumented SNAFU.
Recommend this product?
I don't think anything is different with this iPod 30 pin connector to USB than the one I already had from Apple, which also didn't work (I tried before ordering this Pioneer part).
I can't believe they didn't just include this part with the system and charge a couple more dollars. Instead, tracking this down was tough on the web, cost more in shipping than the part actually did to manufacture and in the end, doesn't appear to help if you have an older iPod (3 years for my 40 GB G3 iPod).
Thanks, PIONEER! ;-)
