Comparing G2 cradles
A-DCR-50-PTH is a mounting solution compatible with the Silverline DUO and the Universal 150
kits sold by Audiovox, as well as with many 3rd party connectivity kits that have a 30 pin dock
connector.
A-DCR-150-USB is a mounting solution compatible with the MediaBridge and the Universal
200 kits sold by Audiovox, as well as with many 3rd party connectivity kits that have a USB port
connector.
A-DCR-200-AVO is a standalone mounting solution designed to enable iPod Out feature for rear
seat entertainment applications. This cannot be used in conjunction with any connectivity kit.
A-DCR-300-CHG is a 12V to 5V charge converter and mounting solution compatible with legacy
3rd party connectivity kits that have a 30 pin dock connector and supplied 12V charge power.
G2 cradles are designed to securely hold your device without the use of protective cases or skins. You may
be able to use a larger holder to accommodate certain cases, however the majority of the cases prevent
proper seating of the dock connector thereby leading to unreliable operation.

What is iPod Out?
iPod Out is a new feature from Apple in iOS5, which allows an iPod / iPhone* to display an iPod interface on
a connected external screen, and the G2 cradle (A-DCR-200-AVO) lets you do just that. It outputs the iPod
music interface screen to your rear seat entertainment system for an easy access operation.
