USA SPEC Broken Cord

So after breaking this cord I realize its next to impossible to source a replacement. Then I noticed the ipod cord from the OEM kit, comparing the usa spec pa12 ipod cord to the ipod cord from the OEM unit I think it might be the same. Can anyone verify this before I order it?




OEM Cord

Also no, I don't think the OEM cable will work from what I can see.

I mean Ive compared each port and the cable design. Im sure it will fit but is there some electrical incompatibility?

Many companies use the 9pin mini din connector. Most of them are different pionuts. You can blow up your iPod or adapter if you choose the wrong one.

What part of the cable did you break? Can you repair it? Do you have a multimeter and know how to use it? I have a usa spec and could check a few pins in the chord if needed.

You could buy an ipod dock extender cable (not a charging cable) and splice that on to cable you have.
