    The aux in on your radio needs a serial connection? I never heard of that one, not saying its not true just odd. These damn automakers keep making it harder and harder to replace the radio. My BMW 335i needs 10 feet of Fiber optic to relocate the radio to the trunk so I dont get a error every time I start the car.

    Maybe the headunit needs to "see" a serial connection as it might use this for ipod controls.

    What a bummer with that fiber optic issue. If the required optical signal is not rolling code or anything fancy it might be possible to fool it.

    The biggest issue with the fiber is if it's not there the car can't be reprogrammed at the dealer so I would not only get the error but can't go to the dealer unless I put the radio back in every time, a real PITA.

    Is there a very noticeable difference is the use of the HDMI to the A/V cable? I plan to use my iTouch 2nd gen when I don't have my phone, or simply for a bigger library, and am prepared to just switch between cables. But, if the HDMI isn't that much better I would rather just use the A/V and not have to worry about plugging in audio or messing with a dock.

    A/V is actually not that bad on an iphone4. Its better than A/V on the 3GS though.

    A/V = good
    VGA = better
    HDMI = best

    For ease of installation and switching between iphone/ipod, A/V is a good option.

    I suspect that's it. I work at an international cable tv network so I have access to some nice tools. We're going to put it on a scope and see what kind of traffic is going on there.

    I'd love to pick the brain of the guy who dealt with the connectivity of the Mimics. You've crossed some hurtles that may help me out. Does anybody happen to know who that is?

    I like this idea, especially the abiity to use the 3g ability for mobile access...but can you make a module that will work for Android?

    I am using Android as are a great many people

    I did purchase a few android phones, about 30 days ago.. Though they haven't arrived!! Looks like I have to purchase them again. I do have something working for android, but I need to test a variety of androids to ensure its compatible with most handsets.
