Hello all it's my 1st post on this forum!
I wonder if there is some information available on USB controller in the Sansa series. In particular, does it have host feature ?
The reason I ask, I would like to write a plugin to tap into BMW's IBUS and simulate CD changer in my bimmer
. The connection can be realized using an IBUS adapter from www.reslers.de
. I've already got one IBUS<->RS232 and I wrote an winamp plugin which works ok, but I am not very fond of carrying laptop in the trunk
. Another options that actually appeals most to me is Sansa <-> USB to IBUS adapter (also reslers) <-> IBUS
The advantages are clear: no moving parts, small size, low cost.
The IBUS-USB adapter behaves like a COM port when connected to Windows PC.
So anyone willing to co-develop ?
Or maybe there are some SD-Card Mp3 players around with open source firmware and serial port ? It can also be a kit.
