Dynavin and apple's new "lightning" connector
 
So I haven't read any news regarding Dynavin's response to the new lightning connector. I want to know what's going on with this, and if Dynavin will have a cable to support new iphones/ipods. Specdock (Which I currently have) says they are working on a solution, but I don't know if they will have something for the Dynavin Unit just yet. So anyone heard anything through the grapevine? (Also, It's weird that I have searchd and looked around and haven't found any discussions about it.)

I expect it will be a while until any of these connectors show up from any brand. I think apple is going to sell A LOT of those adapters over the next few months.....

According to Spec.dock, the adapters don't work.

jeffb325@NavigationSolutions 09-15-2012 09:11 PM

???? The adapters wont work for a spec dock because its a docking station.....a half inch thick adapter isnt going to do them any good. Electrically they will "work", but you phone will have nothing to hold it in place. Totally different situation than the dynavin (or most apple compatible devices). The dynavin just uses a cable, the adapter goes on the end of the cable and plugs into your new iphone 5. Done. At this point the phone hasnt even come out yet so it seems a little premature for there to be any definitive "go to" solutions for any of this stuff right now. Time and the market will determine the success of apples plug changeover.

from spec.docks' facebook page:


Status Update
By spec.dock
As we've all seen by now, Apple has ditched the 30-pin iPod and iPhone connector in favor of Lightning, and simply plugging their adapter into the spec.dock connector isn't going to be supportive enough at all, so we're already at work on a solution. We'll announce it here, so please stay tuned, and thanks as always for your continued support!

Last from their FB:

spec.dock Okay guys, it looks like Apple saved the day by making not only a fixed adapter, but also a cable-based one, so we're in business. They don't ship until October, but we'll have quantity on hand, and a retrofit program in place for all of you upgrading to the iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5th gen or the new iPod Nano. Trust that we'll make this as painless as we can, and we'll announce the info here as soon as we have testing complete!

I just got the lightning adapter yesterday, and it doesn't recognize the iphone, and says it is not compatible for charging.

yikes... this is exactly what I was worried about. I read online that there are a lot of accessories out there that don't work with it and I had my doubts about it working with the dynavin unit.. what da ya know.


arrgghh!!! :banghead:

They need to report this to Dynavin and dynavin needs to come out with a fix for this... asap. Anyone know how we would go about doing this?

:hmm:.. that ain't a dynavin unit dude. :thumbdwn:

2000_328CI 10-18-2012 09:26 AM

I understand... The point was that it's not a lost cause for ALL units. I'm yet to test my Sony unit but the pioneer worked totally fine with the 30 pin lightning connector

that's fine.. only thing is, this thread is labeled "Dynavin and apple's new lightning connector."

Just saying. trying to keep things on topic. :thumbup:

I find it strange that it would work on some units and not others :dunno:

For sure. This sounds more like a software problem than a problem with the adapter's hardware since you got it to work with the pioneer...

does it just SAY that or does it not actually charge, iphones have been saying that "accessory not recognized" thing since the beginning and seems to have no bearing on if it works or not.

After reading this http://www.macworld.com/article/2012...-adapters.html I have no reason to think that there should be any issues with the dynavin or pretty much any other device. Do a Reboot your iphone and see what happens.

grey330i 10-18-2012 01:25 PM

I tried it again at lunch. It is charging. The touch interface does not recognize the device though.

jeffb325@NavigationSolutions 10-18-2012 01:44 PM

did you do a hard reboot on the iphone? Or maybe even do a restore in itunes.
