    I need a way to plug my 800w into the AUX jack on my car stereo. Is there a USB to headphone thingie adapter? Would be great if it could charge the phone through a lighter jack at the same time.

    But what about a way to charge the phone too? Guess I need a micro usb hub like this:

    1. You need micro, not mini.
    2. I don't think any of those are working. Search the forums, but I think I am right.

    oh wow so there is no solution? Someone posted in another thread that there are adapters available.

    There are a number of moto micro and mini audio adapters, and also a splitter. I am not sure which, if any work with a mini to micro adapter (Motorola SKN6252 or the smaller SKN6245A).
    Perhaps we can pool info on which have been tried.

    micro sized motorola SYN2112a

    micro sized motorola syn2113

    mini usb to audio moto SYN1504

    There are also HTC usb (mini) headphone and charging splitters as noted.

    We can pool what works and doesn't.

    USB "standard" is a misnomer in portable devices. It has become more and more common for makers to use proprietary pinouts (wiring) as well as software signaling within USB.

    I am planning on picking up a 3.5mm female jack and soldering it onto the headphone accessory included, which should work, if you have the time/skill.

    Silly if Palm thinks that no one is ever going to want to upgrade the headset that comes with the phone.

    I bought this to use as a BT audio "bridge" in the car

    It's the Jabra "dog tag" got it today and it works well, and it leaves the micro usb free for charging.

    Well very few if any Windows mobile phones seem to come with a 3.5mm jack anymore. It really sucks

    I think the reason they don't work is that you don't need a stereo 3.5mm jack, you need a stereo + microphone 3.5mm jack.

    I wonder if this one works:

    I was a sucker and ordered the motorola micro usb > 3.5mm. i can say for sure that does not work.

    i also ordered 2 motorola mini to micro usb adapters...at least those work find...it charges in the car and syncs/charges on the computer.

    It looks like that has a mini-USB connector. How are you going to connect it to the Treo that uses micro-USB. The Motorola mini to micro converter doesn't carry over audio when you use a USB headset.

    Those are mini-usb. I have a few of those and tried to use the motorola mini to micro converter with them and those adapters will not even fit into the converter due to the non-standard shape on the end.

    You're right. I got the micro and mini confused. I will delete my posts.

    These do not work. I have a HTC touch that comes with a similar adapter and the end that would go into the phone does not fit... regular mini-micro adapters. These HTC adapters have a USB plug that is different (typically referred to as 11 pin USB audio) connector. Here's a pic (sorry they are blurry but I was rushing) of what I am talking about -- notice the the HTC style adapter (in the middle) and the touch female plug (at the bottom) only has one bent side, essentially preventing it from being used with any commonly available mini-USB adapters. I should mention many of the micro mini adapters are only wired to pass power or data/sync -- not audio.

    This discussion is going on in several threads with some people (including me) snipping off the Palm supplied earbuds and soldering/twisting on a regular 3.5mm jack.

    Here's the threads and the pic

    So below is the difference between Mini (left) and Micro (right). My ebay posts are for mini. I've deleted my posts.
