I did some research, and others have reported the same problem. The supposed culprit? The "bargain" knock off adapter that I got on Amazon ($35).... SO, I bit the bullet, and paid BMW $88 for the OEM iPod adapter cord. Bastages!

I'll be able to report how it works within a couple weeks....
I would have tried the kludge of using a rubber band, back and forth over the two parts (figure of eight) to draw them together and reduce skakeage. I did wonder how you got an IPAD in there
