    Is it possible to set up a USB port as well as an aux-in jack socket?

    USB as in ipod connection ?? If using the stock headunit then don't think that's possible without using another bit of kit like a Denison ice link or one of the parrot handsfree kits has ipod connectivity

    Vehicle : Mokka

    Trim : SE - Orange Rock 's !!

    Engine : 1.7CDTi

    Year : 2014

    Default

    I was thinking of adding this (Beklin 12v to 5V usb adaptor which plugs into the cig lighter, except it is too long for my 04 DTi HB cir lighter) and adding the audio/aux input to the 2 pins that are unused, if they exist in the adaptor.
    The 4 pins in an USB are 2x power and 2x signal/data.
    Then add the belkin thing somewhere in the centre console.
    It's just an idea at the moment, but will look into it

    I like that idea, but like you say it depends on whether the pins are there.

    I suppose theres nothing stopping you from ripping the USB port from an old pc.

    I have a single din stereo here with the aux/usb/sd card inputs on it (had it in the old car) but it would make the dash of the vec look a bit messy so i'm always on the look out for an alternative
