iphone 3GS on iOS 6 not working?

I'm not sure if the problem is it being a 3GS or if it's IOS6 or if it's something hardware related in the phone. So I'm hoping to see if this setup works for anyone else. This is a 3GS I received back from a family member when they upgraded their phone. I like the idea of leaving it in the console and letting it sync with itunes / icloud via wifi when parked at home.

Car is my 2010 E93 with iDrive and a Y cable. My iphone 4S with iOS 5.1 works fine.

The 3GS with iOS 6 displays "Charging is not supported with this accessory", and if I open Music it will flip back and forth between displaying "Accessory Connected" and displaying the music controls. The iDrive display shows front USB as not connected. It acts like the car is trying to initialize the interface but failing.

Again, my other iphone works just fine. So I'm pretty sure the car and the Y cable are okay.

If someone else has a 3GS on iOS6 working, then it's probably either the phone or the y cable.

BTW, I did search but wasn't able to locate anything helpful.

Also - my car's "software" was updated in late 2012 by the dealer when they were fixing something else.
