My daughter's Nissan Dualis/Qashquai has a socket in the centre glove box, together with a cable.  The socket/plug appear to be of 8 pins arranged in 2 blocks of 4, and the other end of the cable looks very much like for an iPhone.


Anyone know what its for, and what the actual connection is called?

      >like this?<


That look like the socket for sure.


A little looking around seems to indicate that it is an iPod/iPhone connector which can then be controlled on the steering wheel?

looks like an old style proprietary cellphone or PDA type data (and charging) connector from around the year 2000-2005.

The first 5 days after the weekend are the hardest.
