Anyone know if it would be possible using an apple 30 pin connector - which normally supplies power and receive an audio/data connection for music from a raspberry pi?

So Ideally the raspberry pi:

  • would receive power from dock via the connector
  • Output audio to the dock/car
  • Receive control command from the dock/car (next track, previous track, possible navigation to playlists

I couldn't find anything that had done this. I assume most applications like this have migrated to bluetooth for audio output.


This sounds completely feasible as the iPod/iPhone is powered with 5V/1A. I suggest you start with something like the Dock Connector Pinout. But I think the most problematic part will be to get the Dock Connector Socket.
