Snap-In Adaptor Part #s that work

Some of us have been sold snap-in adaptors and were told repeatedly they were media adaptors when in fact they are music adaptors. These will not actually play music.

To play music with a snap-in adaptor on a 2011 X3 built after September, only the following 2 media adaptors will work.

3G/3GS 84219229004
4G 84212199392

Neither is shipping in the US as of today. Until they ship, using the Apple white 30 pin USB connector works great for playing music and seems to provide all the music functionality as the media snap-in.

To further add to the confusion, the basic snap-in adaptor and the media snap-in adaptor are both available now in the UK for the iPhone 3G and 3GS, but only the basic snap-in adaptor is available for iPhone 4, but you can't order it online. iPhone 4 media adaptor expected next month.

I have the basic snap-in adaptor for iPhone 4 installed and waiting. I've given up on music from the phone. I have a 16GB iPod nano, 12GB of HDD in the car and also a 16GB USB stick spare. More than enough music choice to be going on with

If you want to play music from an iPhone via a snap-in adaptor for a car built after September (ie. it has a ComBox) then you will need a media snap-in adaptor with one of the above part numbers. The added functionality of the snap-in adaptor is use of the car antenna and eventually enhanced smartphone functionality if you ordered option 6NR.

The music snap-in adaptors designed for pre-Combox cars will not play music in X3s made after September.

The white USB cable that came with your iPhone works great connected to the USB port.
