Looking for an extender for lightning to 30-pin  adapter

The .2m, or the longer lightning to 30-pin adapter for the Iphone 5/5s/5c, is too small.
I drive a 2008 VW Jetta with a 30-pin iPod adapter dock in the center that was stock with the car. I have the adapter, but, it is just not long enough at all. I don't mind it, but I would prefer, of course, to have something longer, and safer.
I have already tried Cablejive cables, and they are not compatible with VW systems.
I don't care if the solution is bulky at this point, I just want something safer when I drive, so it is easier to pick my music.
I was reading somewhere someone using a firewire cable or something? And just to let you know, I do not have an MDI connector.
Thank you all.

If you're using a case on your iPhone 5, the problem may have something to do with the way your case was designed. Many of the most popular cases aren't compatible with the adapter becasue they prevent it from being flush with the bottom of your iPhone.
The workaround solutions are to cut out part of the bottom of your case so the dock connector will fit, or to exchange the adapter for the adapter cable, which is $10 more but plugs in to the bottom of your iPhone like the USB cable that came with it.
Personally, I just cut two small rubber parts of my case out (an Incipio DualPro that otherwise offers great protection, which I got at the local Verizon store). That solved the problem for me.

  • Case for iphone 6 plus with lightning to 30 pin adapter?

    I recently upgraded to a iPhone 6 plus from an iPhone 5.  I have been using the square lightning to 30 pin adapter to adapt the 30 pin plugs on both my bedside clock radio/dock for overnight charging and in the glovebox connector in my 2013 VW Jetta.  I had no issues connecting the plug with an Otterbox Defender on my iPhone 5.  However, there are very few cases on the market right now for the iPhone 6 plus, and the Otterbox was not readily available when I purchased the phone 2 weeks ago, and I'm also not so sure I want to fork over the $60 since Apple isn't recommending the Otterboxes anyways.  I'm not sure I buy into the Lifeproof concept, although I know some people love them.  The Tech21 cases also have to be ordered, and don't have integrated screen protection like the Otterbox Defender.  Admittedly, as careful as I try to be with my phone, I am a dropper and need a protective case.  I ordered a cheaper Caseology case, but it does not allow the lightning to 30 pin adapter plug to attach, so I cannot charge my phone on my bedside dock or in my car with the adapter.  I looked at the Spigen cases online as well as several others, but none of them seem, from visual inspection of the online photos, to have the large opening that the Otterbox for my iPhone 5 did that allowed the adapter to be connected.
    Yes, I could buy extra lightning cables and reinvent my whole charging system, but I have found the cables to be not nearly as durable as the adapters (I've gone through many cables in the last two plus years, but still have the same two adapters.)  I would rather find a case that accommodates the adapter.  Any suggestions for cases that will allow the adapter to be attached with the case still on? 

    Have a look at cableJive they make the dockStubz which might do what you are looking for

  • What adapter do I need for my ipod Nano 7th Generation to connect to a Sony home docking station (30 pin). I purchased the one recommended (Lightning to 30 pin adapter), but it says 'this accessory is not supported by this device)?

    Could someone please tell me the correct lead I need for an Applie Ipod 7th Generation 16GB for a Sony docking station. I bought a Lightning to 30 pin adaptor that fits the dock but not the ipod (this was recommended to me by someone from the Apple shop believe it or not). I need one that will fit the ipod and then slot into the 30 pin dock. The dock pulls out and my old ipod (5th Generation) just slotted straight in, but this slot obviously doesn't fit. It would really help if someone can recommend what I need to use or even if there is one that just slots in or whether I need some sort of cable and can't use the docking station. I've had a lock at the Apple store but just keep getting confused about what does what and can't seem to see anything unless I need an additional cable to slot into the 30 pin adapter I already have?

    If it is a lightning to 30 pin adaptor, and you have a 7th Generation Nano it has to fit the Nano.

    You need to contact Sony and see if they model you have is compatible with the docking adapter. It may not be.

  • Will the lightning to 30 pin adapter play music through my dock

  • Apple Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter and 1st generation connector

    Will an Apple Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter allow an iPhone 5 to charge from a 1st generation connector? When I plug my old iPhone 3s directly into my 2006 Lexus LS430 connector, the iPod function will work but not charge. This is apparently because 1st gen connectors didn't have a USB charge capability. I'm hoping the adapter will correct that.

    As I suggested above ,the first iPod had a firewire connection ,as did the next ( I have one)
    I also had the first Bose sounddock which was designed for the first iPod and required the afore mentioned adapter to work with my iPhone 3G
    As I said to charge the iPhone 3G you need the  adapter to change the 30 pin wiring from having firewire to just USB as everything is today
    Look at
    as an example ,this is the type of adapter you require to change the car live connection to support the iPhone 3G
    If you then also want to use an iPhone 5 you will IN ADDITION require the lightning to 30 pin adapter

    will the lightning to 30 pin adapter work with the irig midi interface?  Want to record guitar with garage band on ipad mini. need quick/easy way to connect USB to ipad mini

    From both? Interesting. I like that though. I am looking for the controls to be on the iPhone rather than the stereo as it ***** finding songs this way. And yeah, $39.00 is a lot for this, and it is only roughly 8" long. Oh well, I will need it, so I will have to buy it. Thanks for the message back!

  • Will the lightning to 30-pin adapter work with my 2008 Volkswagen Jetta?

    I have a 2008 Volkswagen Jetta that came with an iPod Adapter in the center console. Has anyone recently tried using the lightning to 30-pin adapter with one if they have one? Even if it isn't a VW Jetta? Maybe something older or 2009? I want this and I am getting the iPhone 5 soon, but I don't exactly want to spend the $39.00 to see if this would work. Anyone have any experience or at least know if it would work?
    If it does, where are the controls used from; the iPhone or the stereo system in the car still?
    Thank you in advance.

  • Does the lightning to 30 pin adapter support audio?

    I have an iPod touch 5th generation and can't listen to it in the car because the wire from the cars FM transmitter has a 30 pin connection. I was just wondering if the lightning to 30 pin adapter would support the audio.

    Hey treshz98,
    Thanks for the information, I believe the following article addresses your question:
    Lightning to 30-pin Adapter: Using video adapters or other 30-pin accessories
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5498
    When you connect an iPod or iPhone with the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter, the iPod or iPhone will be treated like an iPod that does not support iPod Out. You should still be able to navigate through and play your music using the vehicle's built-in user interface.

  • APPLE LIGHTNING TO 30-PIN ADAPTER MD824ZM/A

    I have just bought a new iPod Touch 5th Gen.
    Will the "APPLE LIGHTNING TO 30-PIN ADAPTER MD824ZM/A" let me connect the iPod to my surround sound, which has a 30 pin dock, and allow the music to play through the system?
    Have been doing some searching and have seen varying answers.  The APPLE LIGHTNING TO 30-PIN ADAPTER MD824ZM/A cable is not cheap so I don't want to be paying out for something that will not do the job.
    Thanks

    Thanks - hadn't considered the surround controls controlling the iPod so handy to know

  • Lightning to 30 pin adapter

    I currently have a 5th generation 30GB ipod that I use in my car with a cables to go 3.5mm to dock connector audio cable.
    I want to upgrade to a 32GB ipod touch and I was wondering if I use the Apple lightning to 30 pin adapter and connect it to my cables to go cable in my car will the touch give me a line out signal the way my current ipod and cable does so that I can listen through my cars audio system?
    Hope this makes sense.
    Thanks
    Frank

    I ended up cancelling my order for an iPod touch 4 and instead ordered an iPod touch 5 32GB.
    I received my iPod touch 5 yesterday and tried using the Lightning to 30 pin adapter in my car with the Cables to Go 30 pin connector to 3.5mm cable connected to the AUX port in my car and heard nothing through my cars stereo system.
    Fortunately when I ordered the iPod I also ordered another 30 pin connector to 3.5mm cable by Comprehensive and when I hooked up that cable in my car it seemed to work perfectly. Not sure what the difference in the cables could be, but I think I will pick up an extra one.

  • What exactly IS a Lightning to 30-pin adapter?

    Hi everyone, first post here.
    So, this week (hopefully), my Product Red, engraved, 5th Gen iPod touch is coming in. Although I didn't order a Lightning to 30-pin adapter, I may get one for Christmas. I have a Sony iPod Docking station (only works with earlier gens). Does the Lightning to 30-pin adapter have 30-pin on bottom and Lightning on top? So, like, it just plops right onto the Dock and then put my iPod 5th gen on top?
    Thanks for any help.
    Itoucherdude

    This 30-pin to lightning dock adapter should be compatible with most of the docks.
