My 2012 SLK 172 has an Apple 30 pin male connector cable in the center console. I'm trying to connect my iPhone 6 which has the newer lightning female plug. I've tried various adaptors and extensions but get a message that they are incompatible. The other end of the Mercedes 30 pin connector plugs into what looks like a proprietary plug in the console. I'm wondering if Mercedes makes a lightning cable that will plug into this socket and replace the 30 pin one.
Would appreciate any help.

Yeo Mercedes do do a new style cable according to my dealer, price I think was £50.
Thet insist on supplying the old cable as standard, even on my new SLK:frown:

Thanks for the help. I was using an Apple adaptor until last week but then started getting a message that it was incompatible. After reading your messages, I bought a new Apple adaptor, planning to return it if there was still a problem. It worked. Something must have gone wrong with my previous one.
