Ipod Connection Help

I have a new ipod which has the lightning connector. My car is a 12 plate with the old 30 pin connector factory default in the glovebox.

Can i simply use a Apple connector and get my ipod to work ? or do I need to get some other cable from Audi?

Will it show track names/details etc? and also charge it ?

I dont want to go and spend £30 just to find out it doesnt work

cheapest way is to get the adapter from ebay from 30 pin to lightning, but you can find as well on audi ami to lightning adapter.

Do you have the Audi MMI interface or iPod dock, I suspect it’s the former being a ‘12 plate. Can you upload a pic?

On my previous A3 I used it. It does play and from memory it did charge too.

will the glovebox close with it inside or is better to get the one with a longer lead?
