    Aftermarket lightning cables?

    Has anyone tried after market lightning cables, like off of amazon? I'm looking at getting a yellow cable and just trying to see if anyone has experience on this.

    My radio has a USB port that I can use to play music through and charge the phone.

    I got one from amazon. Works fine. Some say it's bad to use after market cables though so you might wanna do some research.

    The only issue you'll run into using an aftermarket lightning cable is that a bad cable simply won't work... and it sure isn't going to last as long as a Apple cable or an autorized 3rd party cable like Belkin. Using a cheapo cable won't damage your phone or the stereo your connecting it to.

    Thanks Thomas. I'll order one and try it. The car its going in I only drive on the weekends in nice weather. So if the cable doesn't work not a huge loss

    Exactly... just don't spend an amount of money on the cable that you'd be concerned about if it doesn't work. I call these cables "throw aways!"
