Default How can I use USB/Aux cable in my Pioneer DEH-P4850MP?

Is there anyway I could play songs off a USB pendrive in my car? My car is a year 2000 Maruti Suzuki Zen which doesn't have a cigarette lighter as we don't smoke (lol). Also, my Pioneer Head-unit doesn't have aux-in as there is no option for "Aux-in" in the menu. So, is there a way out?

Please can anybody tell me the model no. of this Pioneer head unit. I used for quite a lot of time so the print has washed away. If possible, find me it's Manual too.

You were close there! Actually, the Pioneer site wasn't showing up on Internet Explorer so I switched to Firefox and I found out that it is DEH-P4800MP. Now, the query, does my system support AUX-in? If yes, can I use something like USB to Audio converter to use a pendrive for playing songs?

I wanted to ask whether my system supports Aux-In and If yes, can I use something like a USB to audio converter to listen to songs from my pendrive?

Referring to the specs, it appears that it indeed has AUX-in.

@tauk2mi the one you linked is a European version and visually not the one I own. Also, I feel my system does have Aux-IN. So, is there a way I can connect a USB to Audio converter ad then my pendrive to play songs from it?

i think the aux in is supported via an IP bus adapter.
Google for Pioneer IP bus hack for cheaper options
edit: this is a 4850, not a 4800
the difference

uhh, I think mine doesn't have an Aux-In so please guide me with the IP bus hack as the reading material elsewhere is confusing

It has a rear Aux-in, so you can use a PMP but not a pendrive directly. It is also capable of interfacing to an iPod via an accessory cable. Not sure if there is any accessory to interface to USB-based drives.

2 Questions-
1. I tried to feel if there is an AUX-IN port at the rear but could not find it.
2. I do not find any option of AUX-IN in the menu of my Head Unit. So, regardless of whether I use IP-BUS Hack or Rear AUX-IN (if it is present at the rear, not sure), how will it show on my Head Unit?

OK, if I have to build this IP BUS to Aux-in cable, can somebody guide me with the connections. The terminals to which I need to connect the wires are confusing. 7,9,10,11? What's that? how to connect? Where do these four wires come from?
Anybody who can guide me with a simplified diagram?

Okay, so this is what I did. I cut up and old headphone wire (3.5mm) and this is what I see. 1 wire two portions (red and copper) and second wire with two portions (blue and copper). I have attached pics. What to do now?
