Question IPOD hook up on Jayco x17Z iRV stereo system

Just picked up our new 2014 hybrid. Trying to connect IPOD so we can hear music through speakers. Unit identifies USB port as connected to IPOD, but comes up with an error 4. Manual does not address this error. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I have the same issue. I tried playing music from my iphone through the USB port on the Jensen radio and I get nothing...

I've never been able to get the USB port to work for connecting my iPhone 5S to the stereo my 2013 X23B. I just use a connection from the headphone jack to the aux input on the front panel stereo. This configuration works just fine.

The USB port does not interface with an IProduct If you have a thumb drive with music on it, you can plug and play.

You can purchase the IProduct interface cable that plugs into a harness on the back of the Jenson radio, but specs show limited Iproduct compatibility ( eg. Not compatible with IPhone 5 )

The best you can do is use the audio out port ( headphone jack ) from your IPhone and plug into the front of the Jenson radio

I use a double ended 3.5mm wire (headphone jacks) that takes sound from the iPod or Satellite radio dock and runs it into the media input on the stereo. Not ideal but works fine.

I don't think any iProduct will interface sound through a USB cable unless the receiver has isoftware built into it or a sync capability.

The other way would be to place it on a dock and then interface it to the camper stereo through some sort of output/ input.

The new lightning USB's do not interface with either Jensen or IRV. Your best bet is to just go through the headphone jack and plug into the 12V outlet for keeping it charged. Tried the old type Ipod cables with the lightning cable converter and no luck.

Not sure if it's the same radio, but when I removed my Jensen radio, there were a mess of wires in there. One of them (not connected) was labeled iPod which uses this cable to connect to the iPod.

Which model Jensen do you have?

If you look up the specs of the Jensen radio in your 17z, you will see that ipod / iphone compatibility is not supported on this particular Jensen model. The next model up has it. I argued with Jayco about this last year because the brochure claims you can play your ipod, but they would not upgrade my stereo. I can use a 3.5mm cable to play the ipod, but it is not the same.

Seems pretty sad that there is no bluetooth or real ipod connection. Our x23b has the irv headunit with a USB port and something called a digi-port, but I can't find any adapter anywhere. The port looks like s-video input? You would swear it was 2005 still. I might just go pick up a car stereo and call it a day.
