Fixed upgrade woes and it future proof!
Have you just upgraded from any of the iPhones to the lastest model that has an alien connector? Suddenly realised that all of your docking stations and in car kits are now completely obsolete?! Think again... I bought this cable to continue listening to music on an iPhone dock I have at home, carry on using my iPhone 5 in my car to listen to music and to ensure that I have future proofed myself from another connector change. How long have we had the 3.5mm headphone jack...that isn't going anywhere just yet (hopes!).
Anyway, this adaptor has made everything a lot easier and saves me a lot of money on docking station replacement. I don't know what crossed Apples mind but their official '30 pin to lighting adaptor' is quite tall. Meaning that your expensive new iPhone 5 would be sitting aloft a tower that is the adaptor. This put me off. But this cable that adapts any 30 pin dock to headphone jack is perfectly simple and works great. All you need to keep our music playing out of your favourite docking station!

Just what I needed
Brought this as the new iPhone 5 is not comparable with my old docking system which I used for iPhone 3.
This was easy to fit and works well.
