Hi guys, any help would be appreciated, I've recently purchased a adapter to stream over Bluetooth or USB for the MMI via the aux input. I have the very annoying MMI in the glovebox, a simple aux would of been nice. Anyway the device I purchased isint working, that's either because it's a load of crap, awaiting on eBay seller to respond, or the MMI is not working, because of the very specific connection I can't try work anything else to see if the port is buggered, what I would like to know is, does this port have problems and how can you check if it's working. Tia

What did you buy? I have used a CarPro adapter that plugs into the 30-pin iPod cable and it works fine, though sometimes it causes hands-free phone use to cut out randomly.

Not an official MB accessory but works the same way as it plugs into the MMI in glove box

So you don't have the factory cable that splits into Apple 30-pin and 2.5mm jack? That would let you test the connector in the car.

After trying various cables connected to the socket in the glove box I have noticed that the MMI socket powers up when command is switched on but after 20 secs the socket loses power, so frustrating all I want is for the aux to work 🙄 had anyone had any experience with this, I'm going to pull everything it over the weekend to see if the wiring is the cause.
