My aduio link to my Acura radio works (I get audio) but I get the message that the iPhone does not support charging. The iPhone seems smart enough to know.
I bought a $15 dock on eBay for my 3GS and have been using it with no issues (it does connect to the computer so the power source is known). You can always email the manufacturer to the dock to be sure, but if it were me I would just plug it in and see if you get a message. If you dont, you should be good to go.
Well, the Apple Universal dock (Model MA045G/A) does seems to be working just fine...!
I haven't tried Video out and would be amazed if that worked but as far as charging and playing audio through the audio out port, it seems to be working OK. It has charged the iPhone from 32% to 70% in about 30 minutes which seems very reasonable. The question remaining now, is whether I am harming the iPhone and in particular, the battery in any way by charging using a lower voltage of 3.3v?
Thanks to all for your feedback...
