Default iphone hookup to stock radio

After reading thru the how to discussion for adding an aux jack to stock single disc cd player, I was thinking about if it would be possible to wire up a usb port instead to also charge whatever device (iphone).

I know the 2 outer pins on the usb are for charging but i want to make the 2 center pins for the audio out to the cd player function on the head unit.

http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhones-A-N...r_pinout.shtml

Assuming i can find a 30 pin connector to be able to solder to I should be able to make this work.

I also already have this but in a single plug form figuring I can just wire it to a cig lighter behind the radio while running the line in wiring to the head unit as well.

I have an fm transmitter and hate using it.

Thoughts?

You would have to:

1) Install a USB socket somewhere
2) Wire 5vdc to the outer two pins as you know.
3) Wire the two inner pins to the CD player audio as you know.
4) Hack up the cable from the iphone to jump the Audio L&R to the USB inner two pins

Very creative and functional. But some work.

I know there are easier routes but I don't have much to spend and I like a challenge. Also I don't want the wires hanging from the dash and still want a stock style look.

I'm sure it would be possible just a little more difficult with more wiring know how
