    Default Lightning/30 Pin Adapters and FM Transmitters?

    I've long used a Griffin iTrip in my car to charge my iP4 while listening to music via the fm transmitter. I assume a lightning to 30 pin adapter will let me charge my i5, but does anyone know if they are compatible with the fm transmitter?

    Thanks!

    Just bought a 3rd party Lightning to 30-pin Adaptor and can conclude that it does charge the device but does not allow audio out

    I am just going to have to keep using my iPod till someone brings out a Lightning compatible FM Transmitter.

    Keep checking griffintechnology.com . There probably the first people that will have something like that and have the best quality products that I am currently using the now (iTrip).

    Now I need to see if I can return this adaptor haha

    you should just buy a new car radio, for reals! 70 bucks for a bluetooth ready, ipod ready music machine... how much are you going to spend on accessories to make it all work???

    Yeah, I bought an adapter a couple of weeks ago; works great. No need to replace anything.

    What kind of adaptor did you get and where did you get it? I just got an iPhone 5 and I have no way of listening to my music in my 2006 accord?

    I got the small Apple brand adapter at the Sprint store. There is also one that is a short cable that works better if you have a case. Only place I've seen those is Amazon.
