Consumer Reports

Your Nano, Classic, even iPhone all came with cables when you bought them.

But these products from Apple did not come with car connectors. They did come with a USB cable. I purchased the appropriate adapter for the car...because BMW did not supply/provide such, which is my point, Wrongway.

In fairness, I will see what happens when I try my old connector with the new iPhone using the new pin configuration adapter. That should tell me much.

I think a cable should be provided in the X35i, though I agree that any adapter to meet my particular needs is my responsibility.

If Apple chooses to support "X," and my unit is "Y," it should be and is "on me."

But I think that it should supply a cable for one, concluding that most folks will be using Apple products, for example. As I stated previously, only a Y connector works in my car.
