    Pioneer AVH-P8400 BH iphone 5 compatible?

    With this HU you can buy a cable that plugs into the iPhone, and then it turns into a usb cable that you plug into the back of the HU. Then you can control the iPhone from the HU. They have one that fits the iphone4, but iphone5 has a different plug now.

    Just wondering if anyone knows if the regular usb plug that comes in the box with the iphone5 would work for audio/video on this HU.

    Owners manual says. "Depending on your iPod, there may not be any output unless you use CD-IU201V (sold separately). Be sure to use CD-IU201V to connect your iPod." (cable also works for iPhone)

    Is it just a money grab? Money grab or not they don't make one for the 5 yet.

    I own a Kenwood KDC-448U, and my iPhone 5 works just fine with the head unit and the supplied USB. Full control over the iPhone, same as my iPod touch and iPhone 4.

    My USB input is on the front face, so I just use the cable that was supplied with the iPhone straight into the head unit.

    Good to know! Hopefully the pioneers are the same. Should be picking up a new phone in the next couple days.
