I have a different brand but it's the same idea.
I got an adapter a few days back and have been trying to make it work. I have a 2009 maxima with tech.
I plugged the original 2009 maxima cable into the car, plugged that into a CableJive 3gs to iPhone 4 converter (to allow for charging), plugged that into a 30 pin to lightning adapter, plugged that into my iphone 5.
Car -> OE maxima cable -> CableJive adapter -> Apple brand 30 pin-lightning adapter -> iPhone 5
I went with this one
instead of the one shown above because I wanted to be able to leave all the adapters in my center console and just have the lightning connector sticking out.
It sorta works. When I first plugged it all in, my car just said "ipod not connected" on the screen, however, it did show as "charging" on my phone and it connected to bluetooth. When I would try hitting the play button on my iPhone 5, it would play for about 2 seconds and then pause again. After I drove around for ~15 minutes, all of the sudden it connected and started playing music. At this point my steering wheel controls and everything worked. I tried it again today and it did the same thing. Seems to take it forever to recognize that it's connected.
I double checked all the connections to make sure everything was connected snug, and it all seems to be good. I even tried taking out the cable jive adapter and just plugging the 30pin-lightning adapter directly into the 2009 max cable and it behaved exactly the same (except it didn't charge).
I used to have an iPhone 4 and connected it into the cablejive and that worked flawlessly.
I tried connecting my iPhone 5 to my home stereo with the apple 30 pin - lightning connector and that worked without any issues.
Has anyone else experienced this/found a solution?
