Default iPhone 5 30pin adapter and Kia iPhone Cable

Does not work folks...sorry.

Received it yesterday and once I plugged in the Kia cable with Apples adapter on it, the iPhone 5 started cycling through songs uncontrollably. It never stated playing any of them just cycling through everything in my library. Worse, once I unplugged the cable the iPhone continued to cycle, I had to restart the iPhone to stop it. It DOES charge the phone, if you willing to watch your display cycle through all your media Streaming audio and a 12V USB adapter are what will need to be used going forward, or until Kia upgrades their cable.

That's odd, there's a thread in the MacRumors website discussing this topic and owners of a Genesis and Elantra have reported sucess.

have you tried only using the regular 30pin ADAPTER cable that comes with your iphone? i'm pretty sure that KIA adapter cable is for non-UVO systems. I have used the regular cable with my iPod 5G (video, 30GB, black) and it works fine, albeit slowly. It takes a while to browse through the library and loads slowly, but it works and charges fine.

2012 Kia Sportage SX FWD, Silver, Leather, UVO, keyless entry.
no sunroof, no nav, no interior led lighting, no heated/cooled seats.
19/25/32 mpg

I just tried my 30-pin lightning adapter with my iPhone5 on my NAV HU, it works fine. I was able to switch songs, pick playlists, scan through my song library without any problems. Maybe you have a bad adapter?



It seems as though the annoyance where the sound would cut out once the phone is connected to the HU via Bluetooth is also gone. I had a song playing when I received the Bluetooth connection confirmation on the screen and the song never stopped.

Interesting could you give me the specifics of your car for comparison. I have the following :

2012 SX NAV CDN
Kia OEM iPhone Adaptor ( short black ,came with car )
No updates to the NAV HU
iPhone 5 30Gb IOS 6.0

It works perfectly for me also, just the same as it did for my iPhone 3Gs without the 30-pin lightning adapter. I have the 2012 SX with Nav.
I am using the adapter with the Kia cable

My apple adapter also works fine with the kia cable. There is a small issue, but it doesn't bother me as long as it works. I have had to reconnect several times when I play the pandora app...haven't tried it with itunes yet. However, I don't have UVO or navigation.

Default Replaced Adapter, same issue, iPhone Next ?

Well, I got the adapter replaced, same issue, any other ideas out there ? I have attached a photo of the Kia Cable and adapter attached, just in case my cable turns out to be a different vintage. I also updated to IOS 6.01

Try restoring your iPhone. Will the adapter only fit one way on the KIA cable?
