Lightning y-cable?

Hey guys,

Anyone here have a nav-less f30 without enhanced bluetooth? Folks like us can't play music from our iPhone 5s using the standard lightning cable at all.

Has anyone been able to get around this? Is there a lightning y-cable yet?

Thanks!

I just got a re-furbished iPod and used the standard y cable that came with the car - I leave the iPod hooked up in the armrest storage all the time, don't have to connect and dis-connect each time.

I coded the car using the instructions in the coding thread and now have enhanced Bluetooth and iPhone music works with regular lighting cable. Worked because I had nav so that meant the hardware was there just has to unlock it.
