    Audio Out via USB

    Does anybody know if the Droid is capable of pushing audio out via USB like the G1 does with the mini usb?

    I am not sure if this is a hardware or software solution (or both). Furthermore, I am not even sure its possible with the Droid... I have no idea how it works on the G1, I just know it does, lol.

    my truck stereo system has USB and that what I book my Droid to to listen to my tunes. Sounds awesome. You just have to remember to mount it.

    I have a Pioneer AVH-P3100DVD that has usb on the front. I've mounted the droid and the head unit is never able to pick it up. It makes me sad

    It should work if you use Droid as mass storage (IIRC docs said if you connect Droid you can say mount or something like that).

    Is that what the orginal question is about or was it about using USB speakers?

    Same here brother. I've sent an email to Pioneer and I'm waiting for a reply. I'll let you know if they figure out a way to make it work.

    I do not want to use it as a Mass Storage device. I want stereo audio out via USB.

    The reason I do not want to use the AUX port is because it is just one more thing to connect. I want it to look clean.

    I have integrated the multimedia dock into my car's dash (reversed the magnet so that it opens the Car Home instead).

    I want to be able to charge and listen to music but only have to plug in one cable (or in this case slide the Droid into the dock).

    If it can't be done, that is understandable. But if a G1 can, why can't the droid. Is it a hardware or software issue?

    You can't mount it via USB because the the computer (or host USB device) doesn't see the phone as a Mass Storage Device EVEN if the SD card is mounted with in the phone.
    Four wheels moves the body, but two moves the soul.

    As this is a VERY busy forum, if you have direct questions to me your best bet for me to respond is to send me a PM

    Just because I didn't post pics doesn't mean it didn't happen....

    The only pics I have right now are old and are of the plug. It is now sanded, prepped, and ready for glass.





    Right now I am just using the model (its wired up with power only) until I lay it up in fiberglass -- hopefully Wednesday morning (if you are actually interested I will post the pics of the process and final product). I am just waiting for my resin to arrive. The 12V harness is wired to a DC/DC Micro USB Car Adapter with an audio cable going to the rear aux of the head unit (which is still disconnected).

    The final product should look clean. The glass will be sanded down to a matte finish, and sealed with a matte resin coat.

    I also rigged it up to remote start it via the Droid as well (right now its just using HTML code to run a WebRelay, but I am looking to make a simple app). I just need to get my hands on an old laptop with PCMCIA II slot to activate my broadband card (the car also has wifi). I suppose you will want pics of that too... I'll post a video once it is cleanly integrated. Right now its just a mess of cables and hardware as I have been too busy to integrate it. I figured as long as I had mobile WiFi , I might as well give it a cellular remote start -- for $hits and Giggles of course.

    But back to the original question... Can the damn thing pump audio via USB. If it can't I am just going to use a BT Audio Gateway (which is a whole 'nother question)
