The only thing that bugs me is that when the car is off it is still charging, i dont know if it is grounded or something, well, disconnect it, main pont is it works excellent and its charging perfectly.
To cut a long story short it turned out that you can't have the data lines connected in the USB as well as the Ipad connector. A quick bit of surgery on the USB cable and everything works. All you need to do is open up the USB cable and cut the green and white cable. Seal it back up and all will be good.
No mirror possible with the DockStubz+ adapter.
Try it out by yourself
Connect the dockStubz+ to the Cablejive dockextender cable or immediately to the Apple Composite AV Cable that is connected on the TV.
Connect now the cable construction into the Lifeproof Case or iphone and activate the original app Videos on the iPhone and select a video film.
No video mirror on TV
The DockStubz+ don't connect or better mirror the film to the TV... I mean you can't see the playing video on the TV screen but as well only on the iPhone itself! It should be the other way round.
In my opinion is the DockStubz not completely compatible with Apple software.
Using cases as Lifeproof
There is no problem to put the DockStubz+ into the Lifeproof case. But important to notice is that the DockStubz+ is not comfortable fit into the LifeProof case because of the DockStubz+ thickness.
The open valve from the Lifeproof case is forced and can after using a time damaged because of the higher pressure on the LifeProofCase open valve.
The Basic is the small version without micro USB female charger input.
The 'DockStubz Basic' CableJive adapter seem to be compare the Lifeproof case, it is small and the recensies are positive but I never use it.
Hope to help out with this explanation allot of IPhone friends!
ps very quick delivery
Would be nice if a micro usb cable would be in the package.
Eventually I gave in, took it to a local car audio dude and even he took nearly an hour and several crowbars (soft plastic trim removers really) before it finally relented. Turns out somebody had modified the catches so that all the keys we tried actually wedged it further in.
Anyway, it was out and thats when I found the iPod cable. Unfortunately, although it would play (once we solved the "plug too big for case slot problem) it wouldn't charge. No use at all on a long journey. So, had I sold my Nokia loving soul to the iDevil for nothing?
Thats when I learned that Apple had switched the charging circuit from 12 volts down to 5. Cheers Apple! I tried every kind of charger going (rather than pay Apple prices) and several adaptors, none of them were pretty and none fixed the charging from head unit problem.
Then I read about dockStubz.
Other adaptors had claimed to solve the problem but only this one claimed to solve the problem where others had failed.
I contacted CableJive in the US who said it should fix my problem and would accept it straight back if it didn't. When I said I was in the UK and had found it in stock a Mobile Fun CableJive recommended them most highly so I bought one.
It arrived by teleport. OK, so I'm exagerating a bit, but it was quick service!
Just an anonymous black plastic thing (in a nice box)with plug one end, socket the other, much like the other I'd tried. Obviously good quality but nothing earth shatteringly outstanding about it, if you know what I mean.
I ran like a gazel (Aye, a fat one mebbies) out to the car and plugged it in. Guess what? IT WORKS.
No "charging not supported" message, excellent audio,full track control, phone still worked with the car kit. SORTED!
Just as a little bonus, it has a micro USB socket on the side to inject more battery power if you need it. This also allows you to sync the device using a micro USB cable instead of an Apple one. The adaptor is also sized so that it will fit through the port opening in many protective cases!
So, If you're having the Apple charging problem try dockStubz!
If you need to know where to buy it try MOBILE FUN.
Worked for me!
