    Maybe now is a good time to sell my disused 'GROM Audio' iPod\iPad\iPhone(>4s) & Bluetooth adaptor, formerly used in conjunction with my ex-Concert II+???

    Bluetooth streaming has progressed so much recently, in my pioneer unit I have the parrot Bluetooth that supports A2DP, I use it now and then when friends get into the car and it does play the music in a very high quality

    As for the connector apple knew that everyone would want one... Why they didn't start supplying one as soon as the iPhone 5 was released is the problem... They have you hooked onto their products and then they keep you waiting and begging like a crack whore

    iPhone 5 & RNS-E compatibility

    Cheers!

    My issue is having to carry the one lead everywhere. I keep leaving it in places and nearly running out of charge. I have one of those plugs for my car and it works great just need to get more leads.

    Cheers,

    I don't think anyone has one yet as Apple haven't shipped any? Could be wrong though.

    My 5 works just as good as my older 4 did, no problems with that. I assume Audi will produce a new AMI lead when they can?

    Hello all,

    I have got the adapter now and guess what.... it will charge the phone but comes up "unsupported" on rnse.

    Anyone got a new one to work with the adapter?

    cheers,

    Forgot to post, got the adapter on my 2010 RNS & works 100% with AMI, exactly as before, my BT is fine also. So glad I chose the iPhone5 and didn't get a 4S.

    My adapter will charge ok but doesn't work with the AMI at all? Did you get your adapter from Apple?

    By reports the apple adapter works for analogue audio fine, but no video, BT will work ok if latest module fitted.

    Hm, must just be my adapter. The Bluetooth is fine with my car, just won't work for audio...

    I have a 2012 S3, Bluetooth works fine, plugging the phone into AIM via 30 pin to lightning connector doesn't work. It just sits on INIT forever.

    Hi mate,

    Mine is a 2012 Black edition and it says "not reconsigned" when plugged in. Charging is fine.

    Is yours a genuine apple adapter?

    Cheers,

    Interesting as the ami unit has changed part number, so be good to check if older/newer part numbers are the difference, I think N8 has the previous part number.

    Yeah genuine "lightning to 30 pin adapter" it's not the dongle, it's the 0.2m cable. Bought from apple store online.

    I ended up buying a ipod classic to leave in the car.

    iPhone 5 & RNS-E compatibility

    Hm... Mine is the adapter. A guy at work has the others so will maybe try his. I have a 80gb video that I leave but updating is a pain in the arse as the phone gets all new songs I buy without doing anything.

    Cheers for answer!

    I hate having to pull it out to sync it.

    I was thinking about getting a ipod touch, then I could use wifi sync while the car is in the garage.

    Does anyone know of a stereo A2DP adapter what works with the AIM?

    iPhone 5 & RNS-E compatibility

    Can also confirm that my iPhone 5 works on the RNS-E (media edition). I even use a cheapo cable from eBay into a genuine apple 30-pin adapter thing. But I've since bought a 160gb iPod, and occasionally use the iPhone for streaming podcasts or using TuneIn Radio. 1xtra sounds good on the Bose
