Exclamation Convert the iphone plug in the car to android.

Hello there,

Am a samsung galaxy SIII owner ( i know ) but i love that phone. Anyways i was thinking of a way to connect my phone to the car. So i thought i would buy a converter ( female apple 30 pin to android micro usb ). I wonder if anyone in here have ever tried it before. This is the converter that i was thinking of HERE

Not to be negative but i doubt it will work.

All the adapter will do is connect the relevant pins on the ipod plug to the standard usb pins, none of which are used for carrying analogue sound or audio control data.

I doubt Apple would make it that easy to integrate. But for $10 it's worth a try..

Lol are you trying to hook something up to
The phone cord in your center console ?
That plug is for an oLd motorola phone
& You can't play music thru it .

You should have done a search !!!
There is an OEM BMW Ipod kit that you can buy to take
The place of your cd changer . But you would need to
Upgrade a few things since your car is an 02 .
