When I plug my Iphone5 into the usb port in the center console.....it vibrates like crazy and goes haywire, does not charge, and does not recognize anything from the car.....Do i need some kind of adapter to get my BMW APPS up?

the lightning adapter that converts the old plug like from the 4,4s to the 5,5s iphones... same thing with the ipod... for some reason the car only recognizes the i phones and ipods through the older Apple charger wires....although i wonder if i use the black splitter converter that came with the 3 series (usb and aux) and i plug it into the lightning adapter before phone, maybe i can play music videos on youtube while driving.....

I have the same problem with mine, but have not been able to figure it out. Tried 3rd party and official apple cables and all do the same thing. Anyone else have this problem?
