What do I need to do to get charging working again? Does anyone have it working with their 3GS phones?
There is a chance it could be an issue with Apple changing the charging pins but I think this relates to older ipod's & not iphones. If it is a charging pin issue you can buy a Scoshe adapter for the glovebox retrofit option but not sure how you can incorporate this to an idrive setup. As I say, I'm not 100% certain this is the reason why you are having problems though so maybe an idea to check out the apple forums.
