iPod adapter for Alpine Ai-NET "CDA-", "TDA-", "DVA-", "IVA-", "3DA" Versatile Link Ready Radios.

Apple restricted charging on its newest devices to +5V only, and because of that most iPod adapters on the market are no longer able to provide a charge. The iP-ALPA iPod adapter not only charges these new devices but older iPods as well and also provides high quality sound. Once installed, connect the iPod and enjoy your favorite tunes through a clean audio connection and a fully charged iPod as you drive. Browse your playlist and menus using the iPod click wheel or Touch screen and the Alpine radio volume control to set the listening level. Internet connected iPods & iPhones may also use the iP-ALPA to stream music from popular sites like Pandora, Spotify and others. The iP-ALPA provides an easy, inexpensive and flexible method of converting the Ai-NET port to accept iPods products on select Alpine Versatile Link Aftermarket Radios.
[These issues or circumstances may affect compatibility of our product with your radio or vehicle.]
1. The iP-ALPA is compatible with Alpine Ai-Net VersatileLink™(V-Link™) Radios including PXA-H800
What is Versalite-Link : its a menu option on the Radio that switches the 8-pin port from Changer to "AUX". Without this feature the radio will not recognize this adapter.
2. When the iP-ALPA is used, a CD Changer connection will not be possible.
3. The iP-ALPA is NOT for Alpine M-Bus Radios. M-BUS Radios require the iP-ALPM]
4. "AUX" must set to "ON" , otherwise the radio will not recognize this adapter. Consult radio manual.
5. The iP-ALPA is 4.5 ft. long with a dock connector on one end, Alpine Ai-NET connector on the other.--A fused wire (+12V ignition) and black (ground wire) must be connected for the *charging feature to work.
6. iPod text will not display on the Alpine radio. Display and controls remain with the iPod.
7. Play/Charges all 30-pin iPods & iPhones. Apple's new Lightning connector requires an adapter

1. Not all Alpine Radios are compatible. The iP-ALPA will work ONLY IF THE ALPINE RADIO IS  "VERSATILE LINK READY". Some non-versatile link radios (i.e. CDA-D853) with a pink/black wire are also compatible. A toggle switch must be used. The unit will display INTERRUPT and audio playback from iPod will play through. When ungrounded it goes back to normal radio or CD input.
2. Not compatible with Alpine Full Speed-type connector.

Our family owned and operated specialty store makes every effort to get your order processed and shipped at soon as possible; but because 92% of our offerings require assembly (built after order completion); additional time (usually 2-4 working days) is required after which time your order will ship using shipping method selected at checkout. Products requiring assembly includes this graphic and a warning message at the end of product description.
Paying for a faster delivery method (e.g. Express mail, Priority mail etc.) for products requiring "assembly" does not speed up assembly (build) time; however, it does speed up delivery time.
Delivery time for in stock products requiring assembly= Assembly time (2-4 working days) + transit time (your shipping method).
