We’ve had many, many folks write to us with questions about using the CableJive charge converter with their in-car Pioneer stereo. As with many iPod and iPhone accessories and integration kits, the Pioneer kit (models CD-IB100 and CD-IB200) does not charge the iPhone 3G or latest generation iPods.
Most customers have success using the charge converter with the Pioneer CD-IB100 interface. However, to date the range of charge converters offered by various companies hasn’t solved the problems with the CD-IB200. The collective response is that the charge converter is effective until the car is started, after which the iPod or iPhone will not charge.
Yesterday we received word that a customer has successfully tamed this beast. CableJive is confirming the solution with other customers we’ve been corresponding about this, and plan to provide a solution for customers to purchase by the end of May.
