Great news regarding this cable as it now allows charging and playback from the iPhone with the iMIV unit.<p>Question #1 - It says you need to buy a "genuine Apple ® composite A/V cable" and plug that into the dock connector on the iG3 cable. The sync cable that comes with the iPhone will not work, correct? It has to be the $49 composite cable right?<p>Question #2 - I already the the iMIV installed with the old cable run from my trunk (RTI installation) to my console. If I upgrade to the iG3, do I have to fully replace this cable (rip it out completely and put the iG3 in it's place)? In other words, is there any way to use the existing iMIV cable with the iG3 cable?<p>I think I already know the answers to these questions, but I figured I would ask just to confirm. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Thanks,<p>Jeff

Re: New iG3 Cable Question (jclough)

Q2: probably have to replace your existing cable, but let's see if we can get Sensolutions to respond to this.

Hi Jeff,<p>1) That is correct, Apple is using a very dynamic and difficult encryption on the video out of the iPhone and new iPods and this was the easiest way for us to get around it.<p>2) You will have to replace the existing cable...

Re: (iMIV Support)

A follow up to this...<p>If I'm thinking about this correctly, the new iG3 cable allows you to plug the apple video into it, which basically supplies the chip, the rest of that apple video cable is unused. i.e. you still plug your ipod into the iG3 cable and not the apple cable.<p>
