Hi all,

I've just bought a Nexus 5 but I have several speaker docks that use the (older, larger) Apple dock connector.

Is there an adapter that I could buy to output to the speaker? What is the typical name for such a device so I can source one in my local area.

Not likely unless it's one of the docs you use via the headphone plug.

Update...

This will do sound but not charge...

I have a cable from them that has one end that plugs into iPhone dock and other end has micro USB and plug for headphone jack. But I don't see it on their site now...

Anyone know if the N5 can output line-level audio via the USB port? I know some of the Samsung and Motorola phones can with the proper dock.
