    I just bought a 2014 Mercedes Benz C250 with Comand. It has the multimedia package. When I connect my iPhone 7 with the USB wire it says it can't read USB device. It has the older 30 pin iPhone wire.

    How do you connect the iPhone 7 to a 30 pin plug?

    I can't. It has a regular USB port, and the 30 pin plug.

    Can you plug in your lightning cable to the USB opening?

    You will need to shell out $60 for a Comand lightning cable. Call the local MB dealer.

    When I connect it it says it doesn't recognize it.

    Thank you AggieWSO. Would the "Apple MD823ZM/A Lightning-to-30 Pin Adapter" work?

    Damn and we thought Apple was price gouging:)
    Can't you use Bluetooth to connect?

    That's a lot of money for a wire. haha. I've been using Bluetooth, but wanted to connect with the wire to see the album art.

    It would work to charge but I would not trust it to stream my music. Welcome to Mercedes ownership! The admission is worth the price. :)

    If you do get it, try it out while you are at the dealership to make sure it's what you need.

    I have used the USB plug in my eclass. Trust me, Bluetooth is better... and frankly less flakey.

    I will completely agree with you. I own a 16 C-450 and the USB plug works but the Bluetooth quality is way better and always works for me. Never had an issue!!!
