I am trying to make a cable in order to charge and listen to my droid on my iPod dock. Just wondering if you guys have any advice or know if theres a better way to do this... heres my plan...
Im going to create a cable that does 'female iPod connector --> male mini usb & 1/8" audio jack'
[GND] Pin 16 iPod --> Pin 5 mini USB
[5V DC] Pin 23 iPod --> Pin 1 mini USB
[R Channel] Pin 5 iPod --> 1/8" audio R
[L Channel] Pin 6 iPod --> 1/8" audio L
Now the real question is do you think I could use the iPod's serial Tx and Rx pins with the 'data' pins on the mini-usb? Are they compatible? If so it would look like this...
[Serial Tx] Pin 12 iPod --> Pin 2 mini USB
[Serial Rx] Pin 13 iPod --> Pin 3 mini USB
pinouts for ipod are here:

Thanks for any help, ill be sure to post some pictures once/if I get it made.
just noticed I called everything "mini-usb" this should be "micro-usb" in all cases
