I think it's fantastic, but how did you modify the cable? Don't leave us hanging!
Two of the pins connect an inline resistor, this resistor needs to be changed from 18.7KΩ (iPod) to 1KΩ (3.5mm stereo) since the resistance indicates which type of cable is connected also there is an "iPod Detect" wire on pin 16 which needs to be disconnected.
That's it, everything else remains the same; the hardest part was getting into the plastic assembly.
OK - I will take some pictures and put together some step-by-step instructions for modifying the iPod AMI cable; give me a day or so.
1. What happened from your second to last picture to the last picture? All the wires that you pulled out, what did you do? I don't see it in the last picture. Also, the resistor that is sitting by itself in second to the last picture, you said you have to solder that it, but I don't see that in the last picture either. A bit confused.
2. Once I purchase the BlueTooth transmitter/radio and hook it up to the "modded" AMI cable, it will now power the BT transmitter as well?
3. Can you give us the link where you purchased the BT transmitter? Thank you.
I successfully modified my Audi MMI cable this weekend. It was pretty easy except for getting the connector open. Since I didn't have the right tools, I used the side of a razor blade to release the first latch. I ended up scratching up the plastic connector a bit (and broke one of the plastic releases) but it's none the worse for wear.
Now I'm just waiting for my Bluetooth receiver. I ordered the Sprint Anycom FIPO off of Ebay.
