Designed to mount on any flat surface up to 1" thick, this jack offers two inputs: a 3.5 mm analog stereo minijack and a 9-wire USB Type A jack.  The minijack cable ends in a pair of male RCA plugs, while the USB cable ends in a male USB Type A connector that's USB 2.0- and USB 3.0-compatible. You'll need an appropriate USB cable for your device, of course.

To install it, you'll need to drill a 1-1/8-inch hole, insert the jack, then tighten the plastic wing-nut on the opposite side of the mounting surface. A labeled rubber cover with a snug-fitting seal protects the front of the jack from the elements.

2 questions already asked

If I were to plug in my phone to the female USB, would it output simultaneously to the USB male and RCA male? Or does the USB only go to the USB and AUX only go to the RCA? Odd question for an odd problem I have...

No I'm sorry I'm wrong ...the usb is separate it runs through the usb cable my bad
[ Justin  Oct 19, 2020 ]
im confused what are you trying to do ? Like charge your phone and run your music through the aux input at the same time ? The aux input and usb input both run through the rca cables it's the function you choose on your head unit that Differentiates the two
[ Justin  Oct 19, 2020 ]
In our set up the cable is connected to the head unit. It will be a matter of selecting the source on the head unit. But they both work independently. Hope this helps. From Mike (Stamas Tech)
[ JOSE  Oct 15, 2020 ]
USB only to usb and will not play music from usb only for charging music will play from aux cable

You can mount this by drilling a small hole (about an inch) to mount the plug. This will let you plug in usb stick or mp3 player.
