iPhone 5 Lightning Adapter

Emailed my dealer this morning re compatibility with my 116i F20 and iPhone 5:

Quote:
Information should be updated or will be soon on internet ref compatibility as for docking or cables or
adaptors will not know until October, I understand that America are up and running but whether compatible
I would probably say not.

What a pain Apple
The new iphone5 has new pin configuration so it is going to cost for new Y cables if you want to use and charge it in the car.

Yes but if you see my DIY on mounting iPhone on my dash, that accessory will not work for me. Unless I had a 30 pin female to lightning adapter

I don't think so- this cable is 30pin to lightning. iPhone 5 comes with USB to lightning...

Im assuming you have the basic bluetooth in your car or you would be just using a2dp connection.

The new lightning adaptor doesnt have analog audio out on it , thus the Y cable won't work any more.

That's an interesting point- as the cable I listed states that cable only supports analog audio...

Well, I did the test yesterday. iPhone 5 comes with USB to lightning, so when I plug into the USB port on my F20 it doesn't work, as you already know, it requires a new Y cable.

Bluetooth works perfect (calls, phonebook, etc)

I bought the 30 pin to lightning adapter to use my old Y cable...I'll let you know as soon as it arrives.

If the analogue part of the lightning is missing, can't you just use an ordinary headphone to headphone lead into the aux in.

I havent got one to try but if you plug a headphone into the hphone port on the iphone, and the other end into the aux in, and the USB Y cable to the lightning via the Apple adapter, does that work?

ie. (excuse my rubbish MSPaint skills)

it does support the Y cable- please read from the apple web-site regarding the female 30pin to lightning connector:

Quote:
This adapter lets you connect devices with a Lightning connector to many of your 30-pin accessories.* Support for analogue audio output, USB audio, as well as syncing and charging. Video output not supported.

Yeah, I'm almost sure that method works, but I don't have the adapter. As soon as I receive that I'll let you know
