Now when I plug in my regular iPod it no longer recognizes it under the iPod selection in my car. I'm going to BMW tomorrow morning to see if a new y-cable will help fix this issue
It is charging the phone even when it says it's not, albeit VERY slowly (and depending on what you're doing, the power drain may be higher).
