6NF Retrofit Part Numbers

If you have an iPhone 5 there is no point as it doesn't support iPadOut so the plugin will never work (at least until apple or a third party provide support for this, which I think is unlikely). If...

My 2012 F10 sometimes does this and sometimes shows me the indication. I'm not sure what's different when I do it but I'm certain you can do it and it may even be a standard feature.
