samDock Cable Adapter: The Cable Jive samDock allows Samsung Galaxy S (2/3/4) and Note (I/II/III) users to connect their Android smartphones to a variety of iPod docks and speakers which feature an Apple 30-pin dock. The samDock supports charging (5V), audio playback, and data syncing of your compatible Samsung Galaxy through your iPod dock system. And you'll still have access to your Samsung smartphone to answer emails, text, or talk on the phone while connected.Samsung Device Compatibility: The Cable Jive samDock is designed specifically for Samsung Galaxy smartphones, such as the S2/S3/S4 and Note I/II/III.
Note: The samDock is not compatible with the new Samsung Galaxy S5 or newer.
Connectors: On one end of the Cable Jive samDock is a female Apple 30-pin connector which plugs onto your iPod dock's 30-pin dock connector. On the other end is a male 5-pin microUSB connector which plugs into your compatible Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
Galaxy S3/Note II Setting: If you connect your Galaxy S3 or Note II to a docking station with the samDock and you are able to get charging but not audio, you'll want to make sure that you have enabled your device to send audio through it's microUSB connector. To do this, go into the settings menu, click on the "Accessory" tab, and ensure "Audio output mode" is selected with a check mark. On some devices, that "Accessory" tab may be named "Dock" instead, but the menu you'll find within is the same.

I Dont know as i have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus [ Lisa Jan 02, 2016 ]
I don't know honestly, but I think it will work for any mini usb connected phone. [ Frederick Jan 02, 2016 ]
This is the correct cable for the 30-pin to USB connection, so it should work to connect the G2 to the SoundDock. [ Jeff May 01, 2015 ] Staff
