Ipod Classic into the 8200 cord question

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I'm going to put an 8200 into my Outback tomorrow and I'm using an Ipod Classic for my music source.


I just saw in the installation instructions that I need to use a cord that goes from the Aux and USB to a 30 Pin Connector (my old iPod uses that 30 pin at the bottom).  I believe the cord is the CD-IU201V.  This cord is impossible to find locally.  When I've plugged my Classic into our factory Subaru touchscreen stereo, it's worked perfectly using just a USB to 30 pin, not bringing the aux into play at all.


Is the aux/usb to 30pin (CD-IU201V) really necessary?  Is there a workaround that installers might use in case I don't have this cord?  What functionality would exist if I just used a usb/30pin?

Connection supposed to be:  Unit - Aux cable and USB cable - connect to - CD-IU201V - connect to ipod.

You only need a USB extension cord from the back of the 8200 unit and your plain old white Apple cord from the extension to the iPod Classic.

Or, just get a longer 30 pin cord from Amazon and you won't need an extension.

You definitely don't need to buy their cord.
