Default iPod connector -> Micro USB cable

I have an integrated Ipod male connector cable in my car. I wanted to be able to connect my Evo using an adaptor to the same connector that supports the 30 pin Ipod connector

Does anybody know where I can get a hold of a cable that has a female ipod connector and a micro usb connector on the other end?

Id like to be able to listen to music from my phone in my car without having to connect the 3.5mm to a separate aux jack.

If anybody has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks!

Just getting the cable may not do you any good. It is also about the 30 pins in the EVO being compatible to the unit in your car, which it may or may not be. If the pinout is a different set up, bad things could happen. For example, say that power comes down pin 12 for an Ipod but on your EVO pin 12 goes to some other function, well you are now sending power to whatever that may be.... which might let the magic smoke out of your phone. I would research this big time before you leap.

Wouldn't this be taken care of if such adapter cable exists? The whole point of that cable would be to convert the mico usb output to ipod 30 pin output so that his male ipod input cable would work with no problems.

Also, any chance you could use the hdmi port on the EVO instead of the mico usb?

Maybe... maybe not. I am just saying proceed with caution. I don't know that there is any sort of standard between all the companies and connectors and adaptors. Heck I don't even know if such a cable exists to be honest. As for your second question... I'll take an easier question for less money.

Try the head-fi forums where they make cables day in and day out.

What about this...

CableJive: Universal Dock Converter

You would need to use your EVO''s charging/syncing cable and some sort of 3.5 mm headphone cable with males on both ends (I think they are for sale on that site as well)

EDIT: I like this solution, http://www.cablejive.com/products/Dock-Input-Cable.html

Also, if you mean stream what's on your phone to your head unit, well that's not going to happen over the usb connection. You'll only be able to have your head unit read the .mp3's on the phone, as in, it will mount as a external drive if your HU supports that.

not to be an ass, but it seems silly trying to convert a proprietary connector to a non-proprietary one. You should get a car charger with 2 female USB-A ports. Then you can connect ANY device that uses USB, including Apple's. Problem solved forever.

so is the 3.5mm audio out the only way to play music from my phone?

do you know if ipod/female -> 3.5mm/male would work?

i have an aux jack in my car as well which ill probably end up using, however i was just wondering if there's a way to utilize the ipod jack that is built into my car audio system

If you have an aux input, just use that. It's not as clean as a low level port out like the Iphone/iPod has, but it's better than nothing AND you can stream audio from the Evo to your head unit this way unlike the usb connector.

man, if you have an aux port there is no reason not to just use that. my wife's car only has the ipod male so i have no choice but to try some fancy converter cable.

I don't see why the ipod femaile to 3.5mm wouldn't work. On their site it does mention that it isn't always compatible so who knows.

Yea i guess 3.5mm -> aux jack will have to do. main reason i was trying to find alternative is the microusb and 3.5mm audio inputs are on opposite ends of the phone.

i was hoping to find a way to car charge + listen to music at the same time since its sucks to have wires sticking out of both sides of the phone

I'm with you there. What we need is the ability for the USB to push audio. I'm sure a dev could make that happen.

why not just use the bluetooth to send the music and audio from the phone to the car if you have car bluetooth?

I'm interested in this for the following scenario:
Been an iPhone user for 2 years. I have Altec Lansing(sp?) portable speaker systems at home and work that I used to charge my iPhone and listen to Pandora, and since my phone is my alarm clock this setup worked perfectly.

Since the portable speaker systems available for my Droid Incredible are as plentiful as water in the Sahara I'd like to use a cable to connect the DInc to the portable speaker system so I can continue with the above scenario.

Save your flames about my stupidity for 4chan.

This is exactly what I did. I have one for my car which has the male ipod 30-pin connector. I am able to stream via this bluetooth connection, while I am also connected to the car seperately for phone. Work great. Only limitation is it does not allow steering controls to change tracks. No big deal. Second one is for the multitude of ipod stereos in the house.

Highly recommend - I bought off of Amazon, same unit if you justtype in anycom bluetoothe a2dp you will come up with options.

Well I got it in a couple days ago and used it in a couple different scenarios. I first tried it with an FM transmitter I had for my ipod. I plugged it onto the end of that and connected my phone. Music worked great. I felt like I had to turn it up a little louder than I normally would be quality didn't degrade.

Then I used it in my wife's car. I plugged it into her dedicated ipod connector in her glove compartment. I was able to connect the EVO again and play my music. Playing mp3's worked great. Sound quality was good and the steering wheel controls worked. I have 4 different music players on my phone and when I used the steering wheel controls it automatically opened Double Twist. I guess I'll just make sure I use that when I am in the car.

The only downside right now is that Pandora sounds terrible. I was hoping it would work just as well but the sound quality is no good.

Otherwise I think its a good product. I have a couple other ipod docks so I'm sure I will use it with them or perhaps get another one.

Note: Make sure whatever ipod connector you are using is powered. In other words, the bluetooth receiver must be powered by the ipod connector, if not, it won't work.

I've been using the anycom for a couple months, I got Pandora to sound good by checking the better quality audio box in the settings menu.

That looks like the coolest thing EVAR!!
Despite having the 30 pin ipod dock in my car, I was so disappointed when it didn't show any track info or anything. With this, since I mount my evo on my dash right above the stereo unit, I'd just run whatever music player with album art. Then the only time I wouldn't have that is when I'm in nav. Ahh, trade off's. And I could run it in my other 2 home docks (one is an alarm clock). Frigging great!

So glad I ran across this thread.

Thanks for this thread. Ideally someone would come up witha female ipod to micro usb connector, but I'm going to try this bluetooth connecto. I'm currently using the Motorola T505, but it uses an FM transmitter, so the sound quality sucks. Plus I'll be able to use this on my ipod dock at home. The link above is $15.95 plus $7 shipping. I found this for $19.99 with free shipping Sprint Anycom Bluetooth A2DP Reciever for iHome iP90 - eBay (item 190398627541 end time Dec-16-10 12:41:44 PST)

I work at coit and campbell...and If I am ON coit reception is awesome (when the network isn't crappy the speeds are great too)

when on 75 I get good signal...but again...the network is hit or miss

I bought the Anycom FIPO Bluetooth adapter to stream music to my VW Jetta's stereo a couple months ago, and I haven't had any success with it. It cuts out about every 10 seconds, and I have my wi-fi turned off. This would solve so many problems for me, but I can't get it to work. What do yal think?

delete the pairing from your phone...reboot and re pair.... I haven't seen any issues like this in a while. Do you have any other bluetooth devices you can test the phone on?

This unit works like a champ! And you really can't beat the price. For information on how I interfaced it, look at post #49: http://www.dakota-durango.com/forum/showthread.php?p=2679071#post2679071

Any questions, feel free to ask!

Correct me if im missing something.

With the
Sprint Anycom Bluetooth A2DP Reciever with iPod Dock

your head unit, in my case Pioneer AVIC-Z120BT can play mp3's from the Evo?

Can you control the evo using the head unit as well? (i.e. song selection)

Will it show the mp3 tags on the head unit? (Song Title, Artist, Album, etc)

Can you still make/receive calls via Bluetooth in the head unit if playing an mp3?

My son got my iPod stolen at school and was going to buy a new iPod Touch. But if I can use this with all the functions simulating an Ipod, id be saving tons of money.

Also, do any of you know if there is a cable out yet from micro usb to iPod without going the bluetooth route?

Thanks in advance!

Should work fine, many have posted here that it does all/most of what you have asked. Tags are hit or miss with most head units when done over bluetooth

In theory this should work though I don't know that the adapter can handle cotrol functions ect. A few months ago there were posts that this exact adapter could in fact be made...looks like someone did it.

I have not seen any posts regarding this one. I say get it and try it and let us know how it works. I am going to order one next week, along with the anycom (really prefer the wireless option when possible)

Thanks Mr. Ed.

The only problem seems to be the iPod connection. Its a male 30pin. I'm going to need an iPod female/female data cable since the output from the head unit is also a 30pin male.

Anyways, thanks again. Let me know how it works out for you. I'm doing my stereo install next week so hopefully I'll have results by then.

Any more testimonials about the Sprint Anycom bridge? The Amazon feedback is fairly split...
