      Doesn't Work!

      Purchased this so I could use my older Bose sound docks with my newer IPod nano. It charges the iPod but the audio does not work. I get an error message that Purchased this so I could use my older Bose sound docks with my newer IPod nano. It charges the iPod but the audio does not work. I get an error message that states "unsupported, accessory is not supported." Prior to purchasing this iPod I was told this adapter would be all I need to continue to use my sounddocks. But, no, that's not the case. I can't upgrade my sound docks so they can be "supported" by Apple. I'm a retired school teacher and can't afford that. Why can't you keep this simple and easy. I'm so disappointed.

It charges the iPod, plays all audio and the dock's remote still works with this adapter to change volume, fwd/ rewind, change playlists, etc. Was the best solution in comparison to Bluetooth adapters which can't charge the iPod. I even tried an AUX cable which reduced volume to half plus the remote didn't work.

      Won't work with a case on your phone

      I too bought these in the hopes of being able to use them with the Sony Clock radios that both my wife and I have.

Found out the only way they'd work is if the case is removed from the iPhone (5SE for my wife and 6S for me). I'd really like to see Apple redesign this with a longer Lightning connector and perhaps two or three spacers of various thicknesses. That way, the length of the Lightning connector could be customized by the user by the appropriate selection of spacers and would allow this to be used with any number of cases or without a case entirely.

      Does not fit older HiFi dock connectors

I feel mocked as I haven't folded to throw more money towards an inferior Bluetooth speaker. Because the battery is so poor on my iPhone I need to have it charge anyway. Can someone please explain why this dongle doesn't work? The price alone is insulting, having it not work is just mean spirit

      poorly designed

      Bought one without thinking to see if it would connect to my iPhone with the case on. Got home and discovered it would not and returned it for a refund. Bought one without thinking to see if it would connect to my iPhone with the case on. Got home and discovered it would not and returned it for a refund. How is it possible to come up with a design that would not take into account the need for it to fit into a cased iPhone??
