    Default Car head unit as Galaxy S4 docking station

    Car head unit as Galaxy S4 docking station

    Hi,

    If you know a bit of hardware you will find this usefull. The idea for the dock started quite simple: control the phone from the steering wheel using the USB port. Once that was ready the maker in me said:
    "Hm, that is good but how cool would be to also charge the phone ... yeah USB Host and Charging does not work together but there have to be a way ..."

    and once that was done again:
    "Nah, it is crappy to put one cable for USB and another in the headphone jack for audio ... how cool it would be to channel the audio through USB also?"

    And here it is how it all ended up (+lots of info how it works and how to build your own):
    ivancreations: Car cassette head unit becomes dock for Galaxy S4

    Best Regards,
    Ivan
