    Ipod player in e39

    I have an 03 e39. Up until a few months ago, I was using my iphone 3Gs with the Dice Duo Silverline since 2012. Been using the radio since then and am getting sick of it.

    I think the reason it stopped working is because of the 8 pin to 30 pin Apple cable. When connected, the iphone does play but there is no sound from the speakers. It also does not charge while connected. However I know the problem is not with the phone because it charges when connected to other USB ports. Voxx have told me this model is now discontinued and I can't find the cable to replace it anywhere (none that is compatible with the Dice anyway).

    Are there any affordable alternatives out there with not too much installation hassles? To go with either the 3Gs, or even something compatible with the iphone X.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello and welcome to the forum! I would suggest checking out the Crutchfield site - they have a wonderful configurator (link below) where you plug in your specific make/model and the populated results are ones that will only work in your specific model. I'm sure that you'll be able to find something that will work with your car and ipod. Hope this helps and best of luck!
