I'm hoping this comes sooner because now when I try to plug in my regular iPod I've lost all controls on my center console. It's been reduced to only charge my iPod and play through auxiliary rather than the iPod setting. I was going to purchase another cable but they sell them for about $90 And I feel that's kind of a waste of money especially since the lightning adapter that I purchased was about $40 and it wrecked all the controls on that y-cable. It doesn't look too good for us right now. Hope this helps
The adapter can't possibly 'wreck' the original cable, something else weird is going on. I'd chance another $20 on an amazon y cable if I were you.
