    30 Pin Connector iPod

    Is the 30 pin connector standard or option for the ZHP? How about the rest of the E46s?

    I would like to confirm the other end connection of the 30 pin is the IEEE 9 pin male connector?

    Where is the IEEE 9 pin male / 30 pin plugged in to inside the dash?

    Is there such a thing like the IEEE 9 pin male to a Lightning connector iPhone?

    Thanks.

    The iPod adapter was optional equipment. It was installed in mine when I bought the ZHP and found it pretty useless since all you could do was playlists and couldn't browse by artist or album. I eventually replaced it with a Dension Gateway 300.

    It's been a long time since I've had it (9 years), but I think one end plugged into the head unit and the other end went to the iPod adapter box, from where the 30-pin cable spawned.

    They never made one with a Lightning cable as that came out well after the E46 stopped production.

    Thanks. Reason I asked since I am using the 30 pin to iPhone for the music. I use an Apple adapter for 30 pin to Lightning. It works. Hopefully the BlueBus by Ted would do wonders. Fingers crossed.

    Back in the day, I had the 30 pin Dice adapter to iPod/iPhone. Once the lightning cable came out in the later Apple devices, I plugged a Bovee 1000 in the 30 pin and went wireless with Bluetooth streaming. Nice little piece.

    Wish Vegas had gone better for you guys this weekend.
