    This is a long shot, but does anyone have a Griffin AutoPilot adapter that have tried it with a Lightning adapter? My wife and I both have these in our cars, but I'm unable to use it until I can get a hold of an adapter. Even then, I'm not totally sure it will even work.

    Anyone happen to have tried this?

    I'm in the same boat. Waiting for the adapters to see if it will work. Would like the Griffin or Apple to make one of these with the Lightning head.

    Just got it and It sure does work. Charge. Line out audio and importantly controls.
    $42 adapter for $10 accessory on eBay. Wish it came in black.

    Just wanted to post that I emailed Griffin about making an Autopilot with the Lightning connector and the rep said that they have no plans to do so.

    Adapter it is. :( Glad to see it works at least.

    Thanks for the info. I've already placed my order for the adaptor but have a 2week wait.

    I can also confirm that the Autopilot works great with the adaptor. I'm using the short (no cable) adapter. All controls work and the sound is great!

    By the way the adapter is SMALL! Much smaller than I thought it would be. When you plug the Autopilot into it, the plastic around the Autopilot's 30-pin connector is flush all around with the plastic of the adapter. If that makes any sense.

    Although this is an old thread, I thought I'd comment for the sake of completeness since it was something I was trying to find for a long time - Griffin finally introduced a new version called the iTrip Aux. I picked one up and it works pretty well, and was cheaper than replacing my old AutoPilot _and_ Apple adapter (since both had worn out since then).
