In Topic: Usb - More Than One Connection

Ford also stated that USB hubs cannot be used.

I've also been looking into this, as i would be charging an iPhone via USB and would want a USB slot for my pen drive.

If you're only using the usb to charge, you could probably wire in another usb adapter into the 12v power adapter, or even the back of the current usb you have.

Steven - I assume you know the problems with the iPhone and the Bluetooth audio interfering with cabled operation?

I've just finished a post that includes it...

See Here

Would hate for you to have it all put in and then be as frustrated as I am with using an iPhone via USB...

Check my reply out :)

A note on the iPhone if you have bluetooth and no USB.

If you are using your iPhone to play music via the stereo, and are fed up with having to click to change to headphones rather than bluetooth, i've found a simple way. Basically all you have to do wait until the phone has synced up with the cars bluetooth, and then it starts playing music (but you cant hear it as you dont have usb - and A2DP doesnt work unless you have the usb) so when its playing then just plug in your 3.5mm Jack in and the iPhone changes the output to that rather than the bluetooth.

My guess is that this will also work with the Dock Connector

Hope thats of some help and makes sense.

Did you see the link to ebay to posted Steve?

Yep, i did see it, but kind of defeats the fact i cant control the iphone from the stereo. And the reason i want the usb is so i can have a external hard drive connected to it in the secret hole.

Anyway, maybe when im bored and have some time i will just get it sorted.

Good god people. who cares. If we want to retro fit usb then let us post about it.. its not affecting you in anyway, so if you dont have any useful suggestions why bother.

And Keith i had to retro fit because i bought my car out of the show room. it was wait 3 months forth the car, or take this one tomorrow. Only thing i would have been waiting for would have been the usb, other than that the car is how i would have ordered it.

I dont even want to be involved with this argument.

So has anyone made any progress on retro fitting the usb.. well any further than what i got, i havent been interested in it for a while as i now spend my weekends mountain biking.
