I've bought a blaupunkt bluetooth adapter with a usb aux in to fit to the travel pilot in my W124 and the usb can handle audio from a usb stick etc, but not from an ipod (as expected).

I'm thinking of splicing the af +, af - and af gnd wires from the iso plug and soldering in a 3.5mm jack lead, so I can then use the usb for ipod charging and the jack lead for the audio signal.

Is there any reason this wouldn't work? I'm slightly reluctant to hack the lead around if there is another way to make it all work.

Thanks in advance.

Practically all blaupunkts have an aux input connection you just need the correct lead for your unit. You can buy them on eay or Blaupunkt accessories or make your own if you get the right mini iso plug.
