    USB Port Splitters

    Currently I'm trying to hook up multiple USB port accessories in my Mustang. I have an iPod, HTC Inspire 4G cable, and GPS cable going on a double din radio. I have a Pioneer AVH-P4100DVD radio, which has only one USB port.

    My question is; whenever I use a USB splitter to hook multiple connections up, will I receive error messages whenever running them all at the same time?

    I would be checking the power consumption being drawn when all devices are on as you may be overloading the USB port the hub is pluged in to.

    Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't that usb port on your radio only capable for usb data devices (i.e. mp3 libraries, video's ect.) just a thought SNO

    i believe the usb host(head unit) is too 'dumb' to know what to do with any more then 1 device on the usb port. the only alternative is a computer..

    Correct. The radio can only run one at a time. If you hook up multiple you will get an error. If you use a car pc you can hook up all those plus more(around 100 given you have enough power supply). I would reccomend the carputer. But if you use the carpc you wont need all those devices being used(unless you need them charged)

    According to me the unit is designed ti identify only one USB device and if you try to connect more than one it cannot identify them and sends error message.
