    Works in Automobiles.

    • Written by from Manahawkin

    The cable has restored full functionality for both my iPhone 5s and 5c in our Mercedes. The cars still have the 30 pin connectors. Audio passes through, and the phones charge. Knocked one star off for price.

    Works perfectly in my Audi Q5 with MMI.

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Wanted the cable to interface with my audio system in my 2012 Audi Q5, and this cable does the job.

    I'm going to take it with me when I'm traveling (frequently) as pretty much every hotel alarm clock has the 30 pin plug.

    Just deducting a star for the extortionate price. For what this is it really should be $19 maximum. It's a shame how horribly we're gouged as Apple consumers.

    It works nicely

    • Written by from Leesburg

    After reading some of the reviews, I was more than a little wary. I presumed that Apple would take it back, if it didn't connect my iPhone 5S to the old 4S connector on the top of my iHome radio. That radio has nice sound playing my own iPhone music or playing my Classical SiriusXM channels "Pop" or "Symphony" music.
    It works well.
    I would like to have had another 18-20 inches for the price.

    Expensive, but it works

    • Written by from Meridian

    I bought this to connect my iPhone 5S to a USA Spec PA15-HON2 iPod/iPhone interface for my 2007 Honda Odyssey. The other Lightning to 30-pin adapter did not fit my iPhone case, but this cable works great, and all features I expected work correctly (audio, charging and steering wheel controls). Construction quality look to be top-notch, with a secure connection on both ends. While I don't mind paying extra for quality, the current price is still too high (thus, minus one star). Still, probably the only option available if you need to connect older devices to your Lightning device...

    Worked as expected, but pricey even for Apple

    • Written by from Coral Springs

    I bought this because I have a $400 Sony speaker dock that I love cause it has really good sound quality, but has a 30 pin dock connector that can't be swapped out with a lightning connector (thanks Sony). So rather than spend $300-$400 on a new dock, I figured I'd get this cable. To my surprise despite what people said on here I was able to control my iPhone (play, pause, next song, previous song, menu navigation) with my speaker dock remote which is great. The cable was a little shorter than I expected but works well. I didn't get the 29.99 adapter because I didn't want my iPhone's lightning port being stressed as it was standing on top of the dock and adapter and risk the lightning tip being snapped off in the port. So overall a great product, but over priced.

    Works on my Dock Charger

    • Written by from Pompano Beach

    Not sure why this product did not get a lot of good reviews. I just recently purchased the Ipod Nano 7th generation and was very disappointed to see it was not dock capable like my 4th generation. I went and purchased this and it works great. The only downfall I see is it Ipod rests on base of dock and not standing up. Yet that is not an issue for me. I just wanted to enjoy my Ipod music in my dock and it does. The $40 is kinda of expensive yet I would of had to spend more money getting another Ipod AND this adapter or go with the classic .

    Works with 5S and Sony Dock

    • Written by from Holly Springs

    This works with my new 5S and my old Sony ICF-CS15iP Audio Dock. All controls are preserved and the app on the phone works as well, when connected. Like most reviewers, I wish the cable was a little longer and a little less expensive.
    I saw a reviewer that stated that the DAC was built in the cable which is what makes it more expensive than the other ones that don't carry audio or that have to use the headphone jack on the connector. Regardless, I'm happy....

    Worth the extra 10 dollars

    • Written by from Spring Valley

    I first bought the $29.99 adapter for my car stereo but once I tried to connected it, it didn't fit with my defender case and who wants to be taking of and on a case anyways went back returned it and paid an extra $10 for this one and it fits perfect
    So I would say If you have a case on your iPhone this one is worth it

    Works for my vehicles

    • Written by from Robbinsville

    While I am not happy about the price of this cable (it is way too expensive), I am happy to report that it works to both charge the phone and to stream music, with complete control through the car stereo, when used on both my 2012 Hyundai Elantra and my 2014 Kia Sorento. I looked through a ton of these reviews without seeing either of these vehicles listed, so I was concerned about it. After arriving I am happy to report that it does work, so if you have one of these vehicles and need this cable it should be a good fit for you.

    Does not charge iPad from IM600 Speakers

    • Written by from Blaine

    I have an Altec Lansing InMotion IM600 rechargeable speaker system that works perfectly with my iPod. It has a 30-pin connector dock. It does three things:

    1 - Plays music from the iPod through excellent-sounding speakers.

    2 - Has a remote control that controls the iPod through the IM600 (Play, Pause, Skip ahead, Skip back).

    3 - Charges the iPod if the IM600 is plugged in.

    I bought this cable today so I could use my IM600 speakers with my new iPad. It works great except that it does not charge the iPad. This is not a surprise but the specs don't mention it. That would have been a five-star feature. I note that some other reviewers mention it not charging an iPhone either, possibly depending on the accessory used.

    Another thing to note: this cable (as described) is only 8" long. That severely limits how you can position your devices.
    Overall, once you get your devices positioned so that they are not tugging on the cable, it seems to work great.

    Works for my needs

    • Written by from Tujunga

    As a music producer, I needed this to work with my audio & MIDI devices made with the 30 pin connectors. These include a Tascam stereo microphone and a Yamaha MIDI interface, both of which work just fine on my iPad 4 with this adaptor, as they did on my iPad 2 without it. Of course the price is outrageous, so this better turn out to be bullet proof, at least until it becomes obsolete, which is probably going to be way too soon! Also, why are all Apple cables and adapters always white? I would prefer the much less obtrusive color of black.

    Nice addition

    • Written by from Orlando

    I have more 30 pin cables than lightning cables and it is nice to make a 30 pin cable a dedicated 2nd lighting cable and take it on the go as I'm one the only ones that keep up with the latest technology in my family. And like many other have said I got this one to avoid the cable fitting with a case issue

    Suits my purpose but it's pricey

    • Written by from Mine Hill

    Pros: It works perfectly and does exactly what I want it to. Yay!
    Cons: I had to pay so much & the fact that I even needed it in the first place. Boo!

    My sole purpose in purchasing was to allow me to connect my iPhone 5 to the USB port in my 2010 Honda CRV. I needed an adapter for my existing extra long 30-pin USB cable (no extra long Lightning to USB cables yet) The short cord doesn't bother me, and it connects to the lightning port without having to fiddle with my OtterBox case. If the cord were any shorter or not there, I think making connections would actually be a PITA.

    A little pricey but works well

    • Written by from Camden

    I have a Bose series 2 sound dock with the 30 pin connector. I have the newest generation iPad (4th) with Siri. These new ones have lightning connector. I bought the adapter and connected to my iPad to the Bose. The music played and charged well. Be careful what brand of sound docks purchased. Some may not support charging the battery like my In Motion sound dock.

    Overpriced but necessary.

    • Written by from Richmond

    In a desperate moment where I couldn't find my charger and was at 10% battery I drove to the apple store and bought this. Just to confirm this adapter DOES work with my 2012 Nissan Versa iPod integration perfectly (steering wheel controls, in dash display, etc). It's good quality but $40 is awfully steep for something you're basically forced to purchase because you supported the company by buying their latest device, but what can you do?

    Will fit with Otterbox Defender and works with my systems

    • Written by from Woodinville

    I was reluctant to buy this based on the other reviews of spotty compatibility and case to plug fit issues. I am relieved that it works and does what I got it for. The length was to be expected, as it is in the specs. The most annoying thing is that I would need to buy an adapter in the first place, if you know what I mean.
