Connecting iPhone 5 to MDI music system in a VW Golf

I have the MDI with an MDI-to-iPod cable in a Mk 6 Golf which works with the iPod generation 4. However, I have recently purchased an iPhone 5 and would like to be able to connect it the same way such that I can control song selection and volume from the car's head unit. Will this adapter work for me?

  • Depends what your VW group car can do.
    Video and photos no.
    If you only get music and the playlists then it will work exactly like your old cable.

    If you used an MDI cable previously (USB and AUX splitter) this will work perfectly.

  • Apparently none of the 30-pin to lightning connectors allows for video passthrough. I have tried all of them and they do not allow video out from an iPhone!!
