Snap In Adapter Issues

So I cheaped out and bought the media snap in adapter off of eBay.

The description said iPhone 4, but the one I received was for the 3/3G/3GS. The seller says that BMW told him it would work for the 4.

Well, I can get the phone in the adapter and get it into its spot in the armrest. The icon on the phone comes on that it is being charged.

However, I cannot get the car to recognize the plug in or get Apps to work. They work just fine with the Apple cable.

Is anyone else using the 3 adapter with the iPhone 4?

OK, so having researched this a little further, adapters made for the E90 won't work with the F30?

Sorry to hear that - but you will have prevented a few others from going down the same road by posting here.

I got the 11quid amazon one and works like a dream atm; even plays my Internet radio apps and displays the name!

I believe you need Enhanced BT AND Apps.
