This is a poorly desinged connector. the 30 pin ipod/iphone plug is a very loose fit in the socket. It does not click in place but is able to move from side to side, and actually drop out. The only way I could make this work was to lay it on a flat surface, and press the connector in the socket. if i move the ipod/iphone slightly, it immediately lost contact. This is the first time I have given a negative review on a product from an Amazon purchase, but in the interest of any future purchasers of this item, I feel duty bound to give this the 'thumbs down'.
Purchased for use in Car where the standard supplied cable with Ipod is too long. Worked for about a week but has just failed - only had for 2 weeks. Does not stay connected to Car Entertainment system and I know it is not the Car as Ipod works perfectly well when using the 'Apple' supplied long cable.
Would not, from day one, connect the Ipod to PC and therefore Itunes
