Lets me control my iphone through my car electronics
I bought this to connect my 5 to my car (Benz) electronics so I could control my phone with the car's joystick. Plugged it in and I bought this to connect my 5 to my car (Benz) electronics so I could control my phone with the car's joystick. Plugged it in and it worked perfectly (to my surprise). My car has a 30 pin cable out and this 30 pin to Lightning fit perfectly and is long enough to the two cables together can connect to the phone while in the cup holder.
My only complaint is the price (thus the 4 star rating). Apple should include one of these with every device as we've all made investments in 30 pin cables over the past 7 years. Starting to lose my patience with Apple over this one. …

If you're like me you have at least 4 30 pin white cables; one at the office, one in each car and at least one at home. You buy t If you're like me you have at least 4 30 pin white cables; one at the office, one in each car and at least one at home. You buy this adapter because it works with your phone case Andy you carry it with you. White lightning connector cables are $19 and you can get white 30 pin cables for just a few bucks. You use this connector to use the 30 pin cables you have now. If you have to buy 4 lightning cables that's $80 and you still can't use the 30 pin docks without the adapter. This adapter while over priced at $39.99 it is still less than buying all new sync cables. This is a 5 star product but I only gave it 4 stars because of the price and Apple finding another way to make my wallet a little lighter. Apple you should have included one with the device, most of us would have bought at least one more. …

Works Great, Way over priced
I choose this because the 29$ option without a cord I knew would be incompatible with cases and the like so I paid $10 more to get I choose this because the 29$ option without a cord I knew would be incompatible with cases and the like so I paid $10 more to get something that would actually work. Considering that they are changing this I would have thought they'd include one with the phone.
Enough griping, this cable works great and has even made it easier for me to talk on the phone while it is plugged into my car. The cable I had was a little too short to not have a constant tugging from the coiled cord. Now with the extra 20cm I can talk comfortably. …

I bought this to use with 30 pin cables I already have to connect a iPad mini. I have the Apple iPad mini Smart Case and I have to I bought this to use with 30 pin cables I already have to connect a iPad mini. I have the Apple iPad mini Smart Case and I have to remove the iPad mini from the case in order to use this adapter The plug casing is too large to go into the case. Other cables I have are fine, the USB to Lightning cable that came with the iPad mini and the SD card reader with lightning, both work with the case. The cable needs to be re-designed with a smaller lighting connector and Apple needs to make it right with those that wish to exchange for the correct cable. Apple stuff should be compatible with other Apple stuff. …

Was a lil worried after the reviews, but it works fine for me me...
Primary reason I bought this was to see if the iPad camera connection kit I just picked up last fall for my iPad 3 would work on m Primary reason I bought this was to see if the iPad camera connection kit I just picked up last fall for my iPad 3 would work on my iPad mini w/retina I just bought---any other uses were just icing on the cake. I have a Nikon D5200 and both adapters in the kit (the SD card reader and USB adapter) work just fine---USB connection has issues if the battery on the camera itself is running low but otherwise works great.
Next, got down to trying it on everything else in the house…late model Samsung home theater receiver w/iPod dock (bought it waaay back when the iPod w/video first came out), and my Sony Dream Machine clock radio w/docking station I bought 3-4 yrs ago. Both the iPad mini AND my iPhone 5s work great on these "senior" devices. Aaaaaalmost bought the version of this adapter that's just the connector without the cable extension---glad I didn't so I could ensure everything had room to plug in and seat correctly. Not as slick-looking, but in this case I preferred function & versatility over form.
My car has Bluetooth and USB interfaces to connect music devices rather than an iPod-specific connection, so had no chance to try this cable there. Guess I can try it with rental cars when I travel but with all the alternate ways you can connect iPods/Phones to car stereos, this wasn't a big personal concern of mine. …
