Question Clarion Vx401 / ipod cable? (2012-31 FS)

Has anyone connected an ipod via the optional iPod cable to play video?
iPod via Bluetooth works great for audio...I read manual and it says an optional ____750 cable is needed for video playback...

I use an AppleTV connected via HDMI to play video. It works really well and is wireless. If you want to go direct, they sell cables that output VGA, HDMI, or Composite directly. I would spend the extra to go with Apple cables as I have not had good luck with aftermarket.

Good luck! Let us know what you end up doing.

Looking at the cable and the installation guide, it appears this Clarion cable is allows Iphone/pod to be plugged in using the multi-pin Apple connector and is supply power by plugging into the USB connection as well. The other ends assuming to be connected to the rear of the head unit (behind the dash).

When I plugged the Iphone into the usb connection it said the device was not recognized (duh..)

Assuming this works as described I will be able to control the ipod via the Clarion screen and playboack video. Albeit not HD.

I will search Apples site for a similiar cable, knowing now the output of the cable is just RGA Audio/Video..

This cable from Apple appears to be the same as the Clarion.
