Almost all cell phones today have MP3 capability built in. It would be nice to output the music to the GL aux input. BUT the cellphone connector is a 2.5mm male jack with 4 connections, mic, left, right and ground. Someone must make these jacks but I have not found one yet. I don't know if there is any standard wiring for these connectors or not. Is there anyone else who would like a cable like this or am I all alone? I don't want to buy an MP3 player when my phone/PDA has a 2 Gbyte card full of MP3 files already.

Is your phone pretty standard? My cellphone uses mini-usb for the headset adapter.

I see that Kennedy makes some type of adapters for various phones but do not know if they will work for what I am trying to do. I am also not sure that they are stereo.

No worries....BBQ comes first. :eat1:
I am glad to see that Lewis still has his priorities in the right order. Food first, project later.

We have it figured out...have to order a few parts to make it work...will report back. If you plug a 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable in, you will only get mono and not stereo....thats where the other parts come into play.

How long should we make this cable?
Long enough to go from the tank bag you are supposed to be in the process of obtaining (that I am anxiously awaiting) to either the left storage pocket or maybe a handlebar mounted device. I already have a cable at the left handlebar controls for my XM radio. Perhaps others do also.
