I have an old car that requires an iPod to play through the radio via the cigarette lighter. My "monster cable" won't work with my Nano. Is there a new cable that will work?

iPod nano (6th generation)

    the older generation iPods and iPhones are not compatible with the new 30-pin dock connectors and vice versa.

    You've probably bought an obsolete version of Monster cable which is not compatible with your nano? What generation nano do you have?


    The cables usually tell you which generation they are compatible with.


    Can you post the model of both the nano and the cable?



    I've had the same problem - have a monster cable 12v transmitter which is now junk, because starting with iPod classic 5 g and onward, it is incompatible with anything else. Same goes for touch.
