Hi all,

You have probably been asked this a million times so sorry from the outset. I am struggling to figure out if my iPhone 4 should be able to connect via the USB and the aux slot. I took the cheep option and got the y-cable from e-bay which does not seem to work, could it be the cable?

Company car so not spoken to a sales person to ask.


Cheers - Andy

When I press the audio button and select USB it does nothing. The iPhone is on 4.1 and jailbroken however I have also tried an unjailbroken iPhone with no joy. Tried the iPhone cable to the USB port and then the y-cable I got from e-bay?

Sorted, a friend of myn took his car into the garage and asked a sales guy, as soon as he said iPhone and eBay he said it would be the cable. My same friend was given an original y-cable when he got his car some time ago but never used it so said I could have it, plugged it in and all working.

Additional to hopefully help others, my iPhone 4 is jailbroken on 4.1.

Hi
I have iPhone 4 running 4.3.1. Just bought 2008 335i ht conv. It has the USB and aux input. I bought the oem iPod cable but I can't get the car to recognize the iPhone. Bluetooth fine. Wondered if you could confirm the part number you bought? I bought part 61120440812. Interestingly the part number on the middle section of the actual cable shows 0440796. Wanted to see if you have the same part. Trying to figure out if i have a cable problem, an aux/USB problem or what. Any info would be much appreciated
