      Lets me control my iphone through my car electronics

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.

      It Works!

      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 w 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 $10 more to get something that would actually I choose this because the 29$ 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.

      Premature failure

      I bought this cable to use with an old Belkin FM transmitter in my van. The 30-pin end of the transmitter and this cable sit on my van's console and are gently I bought this cable to use with an old Belkin FM transmitter in my van. The 30-pin end of the transmitter and this cable sit on my van's console and are gently handled about twice a day. The combination worked great for 113 days. While driving and listening to a podcast the transmitter just shut off. The iPhone was still being charged but it wasn't talking to the transmitter. I tried all the usual trouble-shooting steps of replugging the 12V, replugging and even reversing the iPhone end, replugging the 30-pin end, restarting the iPhone. Nothing worked. Removed my iPhone case and used a lightning to 30-pin dongle (no cable) and it worked fine, so it wasn't a problem with the transmitter. This cable had failed just sitting on my van's console. Tried using it in a Sony clock radio designed for 30-pin iPhones and it worked. So somehow, something in this cable decided it wasn't going to talk to the Belkin transmitter anymore. Fortunately, it's still under the 1-year warranty so I'm going to get it exchanged at the Apple Store. It's a $50 cable. It should last more than 3.5 months of gentle use.

It now say device not compatible and prevents me from connecting my phone to my car stereo. WTH? For no apparent reason Apple just decided these wouldn't be compatible.

      You Must Have! Buy Now Price Keeps Increasing!

      This cord is a MUST if you have the older 30 pin Apple products like I do. I have some older phones, the latest generation iPad that used the 30 pin cord as wel This cord is a MUST if you have the older 30 pin Apple products like I do. I have some older phones, the latest generation iPad that used the 30 pin cord as well as iPhone 6s and a later iPad with new Lightning charging connector. I have a number of older cords, AC as well as 12V car cords with 30 pin end, as well as straight Lightning charging cords. I bought 3 of 4 of these adaptor cords directly from Apple when the Lightning style products were introduced. It's been awhile since I've purchased the adaptors so I don't recall the pricing but I'm pretty sure it wasn't $29! I bought 4 or 5 of these from Apple and I'd have needed to take out a mortgage at these prices. (Don't buy those little plastic direct converters! They will break easily! It's better to have some flexibility in between the connections. AND even the factory Mini USB-Lightning plastic converter is worthless as well. I've tried them all.) I hear quite a few people crying about bad cords from Apple, but I've never experienced a bad OEM cord, but I don't pull AC cords out of my wall from 3' away. All of this equipment is rather light duty and require sensible handling. I've got a number of them and they all hold up. It's the off brand cords that either don't work or don't last long. Bottom line is that these adaptors are with me everywhere and it would be a nightmare without them. The convenience is beyond belief and I'm purchasing 4 more now for a friend of mine that was just introduced to Lightning equipped Apple products. They make GREAT Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers. Get one and you'll be singing their praises as well!
