Mini connected Iphone 5 plays from Phone, not car speakers

Hello, my wife's 2012 R57 will not play music through her car from her iphone 5, though with the Y cable, the car controls the music. For whatever reason, music plays through the phone speakers. The same phone and cable combination play normally (through the car speakers) on my 2011 mini countryman. I even tried my iphone 5 and it's the same. an older ipod nano works fine in her car, just not the iphone 5. Any ideas?

Have you updated the MC software?

Mini Connected on the phone, yes but as I said, in my car, both hers and my i phone 5 plays fine. In the car we both have MX.003.005.004. The TX module has updated a few times, but never the MX module. The only difference between her car and mine is that she has NAV and I do not. We both have connected.

Note to self. Stop buying cheap 30 pin to lightning connectors. The retail $29 from Apple worked fine and fixed the problem. Should have known. Pricy but well worth it now that the wife is happy. Cheap one works great in my 2011 countryman.

Glad to hear you solved it. Fact is, Apple has to license any third party connectors since there is a proprietary chip in them. Yours probably was not a licensed part.

for $4.99 each, I'd say it's a safe bet there was no licensing going on but that still does not explain why the knock off connector works in my 2011 countryman. Perhaps the electronics are not as sensitive in that car as they are in the R57.

They do license them, but they're not chipped (the 30-pin iPod/iPhone cables). The new Lightning cables are chipped, but as usual, China has you covered. http://gizmodo.com/5954542/china-fin...e-cheap-clones

I was referring to the lightning adapter. It is chipped. Buy knockoffs at your own risk.
