I have the avic-x920bt and I am trying to figure out if it is possible to split the usb cable from the back of the unit. I have the iphone cable plugged in currently and it is all tucked away behind the dash. This makes it difficult to unplug the iphone cable and plug in other usb devices. I would like to find a way to split the usb cable so I can plug the iphone cable in, but also have another usb input easily accessible to plug in thumb drives etc. I tried a usb y cable (1 male to 2 female) and it charges on both, but will no longer recognize the iphone or any usb device. When I plug in the iphone and a usb device at once I get an usb error. I don't need both pluged in at the same time, but I would like to have the extra usb plug available without haveing to unplug the iphone cable. If anyone can give me some advice I would appreciate it!

Thank you for helping me figure this out! I decided to go ahead and make a panel where my cd changer used to be and set the cable with the usb and 3.5 plug in it. Now I can unplug the iphone cable and plug in whatever I need easily. I will post a picture once I have it all together.

Here is my solution to the problem. I also added an inverter and rca jacks for aux2 and a second 5v usb jack to charge usb devices.

Thats awesome...how did you do that? What parts and where did you get them? I have a 2006 sierra I would love to have that setup.

i have a question, can i just plug in any other mp3 player or phone by just using the 3.5 aux with an aux cable with the 920bt? for example if i wanted to connect my blackberry with just a aux cable could i hear music with it?
