U Connect and Iphone 5

Im sorry if this has been discussed but I searched and could not find anything updated.

Has anyone used the unconnect with the 30 pin plug and adapted to the new lightning plug, or found a cable to retrofit the unit from another company?

Are you wanting to charge the phone or just play music?

If it's just for music, you can use bluetooth to stream music. No wires needed.

For playing music and phone calls just use Bluetooth. For charging I use the regular charging cable plugged into one of the USB ports. It even plays music through that too.

Using an adapter to go from old school to new school (iphone 4 to iphone 5) will work on the factory uconnect set up. It sure ain't pretty but it plays music & charges your phone as well as lets you use the factory controls still. If you keep the phone in the glovebox as the uconnect install instructions suggest for cable routing then the looks won't matter. I am not sure if Chrysler makes a newer cable but I'm willing to bet that they will sell you one for way too much money if you really want it!
