    Limited functions with my car.

    • Written by from West Orange

    The adapter fits well with my rokform case. It charges and i can play streaming apps like pandora and espn radio perfectly. However, my gps app's sounds had vibrations through the speakers.

    It will also not work with my music. I can view the music files and playlists however when i select a song it will not play. Also it will not work with my steering wheel functions.

    My car is a altima 2012.

    Works great in my car! (VW Jetta)

    • Written by from Kaufman

    My iPhone 5 came in today and I used this adapter to connect to the existing 30 pin connector that came in my 2010 VW Jetta TDI. At first it didn't work because the new phone didn't have any songs on it. Once I downloaded a song or two I retried the cable and it worked. Full skip, pause, play and playlist selection just like I had on the old 4S. I then noticed there was some crackling in the audio, I quickly resolved this by changing the AUX input on my car radio from the High setting back to Medium. Now it is perfect and I love it.
    I chose this adapter over the one without the length of cable because the factory 30 pin wire that came with the car is too short and now with this adapter connected the phone can lie flat on the passenger seat! Very happy!

    no iPod Control

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I have a 2009 Infiniti and was looking forward to connecting to my new iPhone5 instead of an old iPod and purchased this cable. Now I find out that it does not support "iPod Out" which renders the connection to my car inoperable. Bummer!

    Works GREAT with Bose Sounddock

    • Written by from SAINT LOUIS

    This item works great with the Bose Sounddock. You should know Bluetooth must be turned off and when you're playing music you must select Sounddock as your output for audio.

    Although overpriced, it works in my car

    • Written by from Boring

    I bought this product so I can use it in my car. I have a Kensington 2 in 1 AUX cable with the 30 pin connector for the older generation iphones/ipods. Thankfully, this adapter worked with my current setup. Also I have a Belkin sheer iphone 5 case and the slot was just big enough for the lightning port to enter, so whew...

    Wish it was longer

    • Written by from San Diego

    The cable is an awkward length, a little too short or not long enough.

    too bad it is not 3 feet long, so I can keep the old 30 pin connector hidden in my car.

    Works just perfect with differen docking stations

    • Written by from Pooler

    Bought yesterday at the Apple store and tried already with my Sony Speakers Dock RDP-M5ip, Philips Clock Radio AJ3270D/17 and Sony Bluray Player BDV-N790W with Ipod reader, and everything work just fine! I have the new Iphone 5 64Gb and these are just the few adapaters I have. I will still have to try my Onkyo A/V receiver TX-NR5007 ipod adapter UP-A1 adapter, iHome Alarm Ip23 clok. The cable could be a litle bit longer and the price could be lower!!! Thanks! I am not disappointed like what happen to some users!

    Works, with 2 caveats

    • Written by from Mount Laurel

    Restores all functionality of my in dash navigation unit in my car except video (which I knew going in). I'm ok with that, and that's the first caveat.

    The second caveat is that I bought the cable version (spending the extra $10) because the lightning tip seemed to be such that it would work with any case. This is NOT the case (no pun intended).

    The plastic on the tip of this adapter cable is slightly larger than the plastic on the tip of the lightning to USB cable.

    The standard lightning to USB cable fits perfectly through the opening in any case, including the SwitchEasy Tones (highly regarded as one of the best cases out there so far), but this adapter DOES NOT FIT through the opening on the Tones case.

    Be warned, if the case you're using has an opening with little to no clearance in any direction when using the lightning to USB cable, then this cable likely won't fit through your case opening.

    All this said, the cable works fantastic, I just have to remove my case. Looking at new cases now....

    Different size than USB-lightning plug

    • Written by from Denver

    I chose this one because the smaller, no-cable adapter doesn't fit with my iPhone 5 case. Turns out this one doesn't fit either because its Lightning housing is larger than the included USB cable's Lightning housing. I have to return it because it is also incompatible with my case.

    I don't mind the conceptual change from 30-pin to Lightning, but Apple's implementation seems to be inconsistent and not well thought. Why not make them the same size??

    not completely working with the vehicle's media interface

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I bought this cable last week, I was so excited to connect it to my vehicle's media interface, so that I can enjoy the songs in my iPhone 5 while driving.

    This adapter allows me enjoy the songs in my iPhone 5, but it does not charge the battery. I need an improved adapter that allow me enjoy the songs while charging the battery, please.

    Also, this adapter is way over priced.

    Lets me control my iphone through my car electronics

    • Written by from Fremont

    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.

    good adapter

    • Written by from Hanmer

    a bit pricey, but work well with all my home and car accessories. It also enables me to hook it up to my iPhone 5 without modding my case. (like the other adapter requires depending on the case you purchased)

    Does the job but expensive

    • Written by from Saint-Laurent

    I used to connect my iPhone 4s to my car stereo system using 30-pin to RCA cable. But since the iPhone 5 has a new connector I had to buy an adapter. I chose this one because you can actually use it with a case and the connector is still thin not like other adapter which cover the whole bottom of the phone.
    I just wish the phone came with these adapters since we did not choose to have this connector changed and yet we have to pay the price.

    It Works!

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    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.

    These cables are awesome.

    I really love these cables/adapters. Expensive perhaps but the elegant design makes them totally worth it. I've got two - one for home and one for office!

    Does not Support Video.

    • Written by from Sumner

    This adapter is worthless in my opinion. 39.00 bucks for something that isn't even fully functional. No Video playback.. Whew. I went backward by upgrading to iPhone 5 from 3GS. Biggest mistake I've ever made where Apple is concerned? Apple you have the capability to make this adapter do video.. Get er done.. Thanks.

    If price is of no object then this is the cable for you.

    • Written by from Vero Beach

    If your iPhone 5 needs a 30-pin connector adapter to connect to your old accessories, then this is the adapter for you. The other adapter that did not have the cable will not fit most of the iPhone 5 cases out there. This adapter is quite pricey but sure does the job of charging, syncing and playing music on you BOSE sound dock speaker system. However, it will not work with you old camera connection kit or 30-pin to AV cable either.

    Erratic, Expensive and Short

    • Written by from North Easton

    I bought one of these. Right off he bat I could see it was too short to be useful. Needs 6-9 more inches. It did work. Then it didn't. Then it did. No idea what was going on. Certainly not worth the $40 price. I took it back and will wait for the Apple store to get more adapters, which are also overpriced, but do work just fine.
