: New Apple lighting to 30 pin connector

10-26-12, 10:26 PM
Has anyone used the new lighting to 30 pin connector on their iPhone 5 or new iPod touch with their GM-550? I was wondering if it worked with the new connector. There back ordered everywhere so right now I have to use the av input in order to listen to music since the connector will no longer fit my lock pick .

I may be wrong but the initial reports I heard said that the lightning adapter was only good for charging & syncing. Apple says it will not support audio or video.
I have a couple but haven't tried using them for anything other than charging my iPhone 5.

Coastal electronics says the don't support the I phone 5 for video output . That's why I won't get the iPhone 5 have a 4s

I have used the 30 pin to lightning adapter on my iphone 5 to play on normal 30pin iphone docks and it works fine. I am guessing it should be able to play audio.

I bought a real apple 30 pin to lighting connector and it worked. They have a special authentication chip in them so the fake ones won't work but though original Apple ones will dam you Steve Jobs

I was on the phone with Apple and tech support said that video out is blocked on all iPhone 5 phones.

If this in regard to the iPhone 5 comment that is correct.

I have a 4, a video, also an ipad you can watch video thru the gmx-550.

Wether it is a downloaded song, youtube, even netflix you can have the video on the nav screen your device thinks it hooked to a tv.

I was pretty upset when I traded my Samsung Galaxy S3 for iPhone 5. The only cool thing is FaceTime with wife, besides that it sucks!

Iphone 5, great news now you can do it, no jail break. Apple sells plug for $50 all you need is a hdmi converter from eBay under $40 and an hdmi cord. Plug straight to rear entertainment, Baracuda NavTv, or GMX550

If you plug in an Apple TV you could prob have video out work. I know I use my Apple TV in my house to watch video off of my iPhone 5

Video out works now on iPhone 5 as I posted before on bottom of page 1.

Can you plug the RCA cables directly into the Rear Entertainment Center and play it on the rear screen?
