    Figured I would start a thread where folks can post successful connections to their vehicles, etc using the lightning cable/iPhone 5.

    Connected to the USB port on a 2011 GMC Sierra Denali
    Touch screen on vehicle controls the music on the iPhone
    If using turn by turn directions, music mutes and directions play through stereo
    Siri mutes music and uses vehicle microphone and stereo speakers (note this also happens when connected as Bluetooth phone without cable).

    As soon as my little boy goes to bed I'll try mine in my 2012 Honda Accord.

    Also can confirm the USB to lightning connector works fine on my boat through the Sony marine radio and its wired remote. Plays fine and lets simultaneous control through iPhone and radio/remote.

    Also, on the GMC, it will not allow the phone to control the music, but it does allow you to use everything else on the phone while it is connected. On my iPhone 4, I could not use the phone for anything else while it was connected to the USB.
