iPhone 5 in recent Hyundai cars?

So Hyundai has a specific cord they make on their own to hook up your iPod to play music in the car.. but the problem is it uses the old 30-pin plug, and I want to connect my iPhone 5.

Just wondering if anyone has tried using the lightning to 30-pin adapter, in the same or similliar type of situation? I don't need the adapter for any other reason than this, and I'd hate to spend $30 on something that won't even work.

Yes it works. I am using it on my 2011 Hyundai Elantra like a charm

I opted for the $40 mini cable so I can hang my iPhone from my windshield during navigation too. the cord just barely reaches

The Lightning cable works fine straight-up with my '13 Veloster Turbo. My wife's '11 Tucson requires the Lightning to 30-pin adapter to work.

I have a 2011 Sonata and the adapter works great! but I see myself using less and less of it because I like the bluetooth feature...no cables

Can you play music through the bluetooth? Ever since I switched phones I never connected my new phone to the bluetooth.. maybe I should lol.

Yup you can play music, the only thing is that you wont see the album name on the screen as you would if you would plug in the cable but I can just look down my phone and see what's playing no biggie and I can still use the controls on my steering wheel...

I have slingbox connected to my phone so sometimes when my husband and I go on long trips we turn on the slingbox on my phone, connect to the bluetooth on my car and we can watch and hear our tv in the car through the car speaker...great if you are traveling during football, you can hear the game through the speakers...

We just got a 2013 Kia (same parent company as Hyundai I beleive) with the UVO system. Both of our 5s work well with either bluetooth or with a normal USB to Lightning cable.

I had a 2012 Elantra and bought the Lightning adapter to use with the Hyundai cable. It worked great, steering wheel controls worked. I just got the new 2013 Elantra GT and when I first plugged it in with the adapter it didn't work. I tried the regular lightning cable and everything works again but the display is a little different. I'm putting both cables on ebay this weekend. According to the Hyundai manual, if you have the navigation screen you need the Hyundai cable, if you have the regular screen you don't.

Iphone 5 and 2013 Hyundai Tucson

I just purchased the 2013 Hyundai Tucson and have an Iphone 5. Can anyone tell me if the lightening adaptor works with the Hyundai cable? I want to be sure I can use the steering wheel controls this way before I purchase the adaptor since I only need it for that.

2012 elantra

Mine was working fine with the lightning adapter. Then had a problem and bought a new cable and still didn't work. Bought a new adapter but wasn't from apple. Still had a problem. It charged fine but didnt work with the music. Bought another lightning adapter from apple this time and works fine. I don't suggest buying a cheaper adapter not made by apple.

Did IOS 7 break your bluetooth? My wife just purchased a 2013 VT and if we don't turn off "download contacts" the system locks up. Hyundai is claiming is Ios related.
