FORD/M-LINK1 V.1C iPod adapter delivers CD quality sound directly to the factory sound system via the CD changer port and does not disable the devices click wheel -- in other words, the iPod™ remains in Direct Mode allowing users to search and select music directly just as they would in portable use. Users have access to all Playlist and settings through the iPod click wheel and charging is also possible while the radio is on and to prevent battery drain, a built-in timer will automatically stop charging 20 minutes after the radio is turned off. The FORD/M-LINK1 V.1C connects to the iPod 30-pin docking connector for both audio and power source, limiting the wire bundle, freeing the console of clutter. Users with Apple newest Lightning devices may purchase optional BSG5 cable to charge and play those devices.
» Charges the iPod's™ internal battery.
» Direct audio connection for optimal sound quality (no FM Modulator)
» Compatible with all 30-pin iPods & iPhones. Apple's new Lightning connector requires an adapter or purchase our BSG5 cable.
» Includes docking cable (6 ft. long) connects directly to the bottom of the iPod™
» Charges the iPod while the radio is on and charging continues for 20 minutes after the radio is turned off.
