I have a JVC aftermarket head unit in my car from 2004. I bought a cable that I had best buy install that goes from the back of the head unit into the front where i can plug my ipod into the cable through the 30 pin connector. It worked fine for my older ipod but when I bought a new ipod 5th gen nano, it would not play or charge it. Luckily the cable had a headphone jack to use but charging was obviously not an option. The headphone jack recently wore so now i am SOL. Any suggestions? No, i do not want a stupid fm transmitter and I am not sure if that scosche charge adapter will help PLAY music and not just charge.
