Well... after an insanely long wait, iSimple finally released a hard wired solution for iPhone 5 users with the lightning connector. This will charge AND output the audio from your iPhone 5!
There are, however, a few things to point out....
1. This solution includes a FM modulator. (The black box pictured above) The audio will be broadcasted thru an FM channel on your stereo. Not the best sound quality, but it gets the job done, and is a cleaner install since you don't have a cable running to the AUX input on the front of your stereo.
2. If you want to send the audio thru the front AUX input, you will need to purchase separately a 3.5mm to Female RCA adapter, shown below. (You can get these at Radio Shack, Best Buy, Monoprice.com, etc.) This will provide the best audio quality and eliminate the need to even use the FM modulator unit.
3. iSimple will be providing a lower cost solution WITHOUT the FM modulator. From what I have been told, it is going to be at least another few months before that is available.
We will not be placing this on our website
until we have some instructions written up on it.
The manufacturer has a strict
minimum advertised price of $119. If you would like to order one of these, please call Lindsey at 704-255-1780 ext. 1. She will take good care of you. Hint Hint ;-)
