looking at the new brochure
£143 for the cable seems a touch excessive

I'm a little confused ... Is the cable not just the same as the normal iphone charger cable? Is the intelligible cable a totally different cable?

Through looking online and the opal website the cable is a little thicker and maybe has a different cable to cope with streaming videos and photos and that the same time being able to cope with calls/texts. The USB apple cable you can still use apparently but only a few features.

Hmmmm that's a bit disappointing as our local dealer did not tell me this when talking about the intelilink feature... No chance I am paying any where near £100 for a cable! Can u still use the bringgo/sat nav app without the new cable?

I think its mainly for Video playing.. maybe I'm wrong but from what I'm reading.here is a picture of the cable (only for iPhone 3G/4/4S, not for the 5) mmmm...

from Vauxhall :
"Plug-in a suitable device via the USB port.
Please note: Apple iOS devices additionally
use the Aux-in socket to play videos a special
connector is available as an accessory."

Hmm aslong as I can use the sat nav/bringgo app that's the main thing as my sense of direction is terrible 😂
But I think that local dealership should explain in full before purchasing, I am not too bothered as I got one of the top 24 so I just went along with everything it came with hut this would have probably been a feature I would have chosen anyway so would have liked to have been told all about it.

everything works thru USB, but Video you need that pricey AUX cable.

Usually you can get an aux cable for the iPhone online a lot cheaper so I was wondering if a normal aux cable would work or if they have made it so that you need to spend a fortune on theirs straight from vauxhall Edited by: Sinead

BMW do the same I think... there is a copy verson online for roughly £10 so perhaps someone will bring out a copy for the Adam Intellilink system.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/USB-AUX-Interface-Cable-Adapter-Lead-To-BMW-MINI-iPOD-iPHONE-5-5S-5C-I-drive-/231107016235?_trksid=p2054897.l4276
one end is iPhone 5 lightning & AUX then the other is the USB & AUX to plug into car. so I think they have made one just for the intellilink system.
don't buy this one as it might not work....
like below :

Found a copy for Adam...

not sure it would work as my Adam isn't here yet. but if anyone gives it a go, then we could all save £100's!!! they do one for iPhone 4/4s.
