I have an iPhone 5 with lightning interface, and I'm weighing my option re: connecting with VW's MDI.
I realise that VW has USB MDI cables, and I could use this with a lightning-to-USB cable, but I understand that Apple's Lightning-to-30-pin adapter contains a DAC. Since none of the Lightning to USB cables I've seen are claimed to incorporate a DAC, would I be giving up any features (e.g. track listing on the radio display) if I swapped my existing 30-pin MDI cable for VW's USB cable?
Is anyone using the USB cable with an iPhone 5?
Does anyone know if there's some sort of flash update for the radio to go with the USB cable?
I ask because I can't figure out a way to incoporate the Apple Lightning-to-30-pin adapter without having great clumps of (white) connectors in my passenger compartment.
