    I phone connection is different to USB connection, wouldn't connect to your phone unless you modify the connector point, even then I don't think it would work...if this kind of thing did work all the guys on here probably would have done it and this is the first I'm hearing of it.

    I'm assuming if this is "standard" then it would only be standard on the calais's and what not. The models with the upgraded audio system

    That would be Awsome if such thing existed :)
    But I doubt it would connect up with the iphone and to your headunit to play thru the speakers.

    Keep us updated.

    If everything is stock, iPhone connection will not happen. iPhone uses Propriatr(sp?)y hardware and software.

    However, there are kits that allow a stock H/U to accept iPod/iPhone and other MP3 devices. Maybe the previous owner had something like this installed?

    lol, did you actually look at the plug? its a 5 or 6 pin plug(cant remember), white one. it will NOT fit a usb plug. it has constant power, accesories, earth and a mute wire for the radio. its used for hooking up mobile phone handsfree kits.

    The standard phone connection that you have pictured is not USB. I have my car kit connected to it.

    I've had this kit for about 8 years with no problems, bluetooth, phone automatically connects when I turn the ignition on, press one button to answer. I suppose it is legal, don't see why not.

    My VX has all the connections for a motorola phone still intact but now hidden in the glove box ,my question does anyone think it would be possible to rewire or convert it to use my Android phone, and if the rewire is possible does the audio signal as in listening to the other caller come thru the head unit, was it a hands free unit where one would be able to press answer and the have a conversation listening through the speakers, I have located microphones in the car near the windscreen but am not sure,,I understand one of the wires would lead to the aireal but with modern phones it wouldnt be needed. just the answer and talkback side.?? Any thoughts.

    Remove all that old crap, you wouldn't be able to use it directly. The car kit stuff was all 12volt (USB is 5volt) and the mute feature is just there to mute the speakers in the car so you can hear the car kit speaker (which was always a separate speaker mounted under the dash near your feet.)

    A modern Android car audio system will provide better functionality through bluetooth pairing.
