I'm interested in recording ATC and mic sound to my iPhone. I have purchased 4 conductor (3 ring) 3.5mm plugs for this purpose. The plugs and cables work well when I am sending music out from the iPhone to the A-20 via the controller audio port.
Is the 1/8 " 3.5mm plug port on the A20 controller good only for audio IN? I can't seem to send audio out using this port when I'm videoing flight.
Thanks in advance,

Definitely only audio IN. You cannot use it to record ATC like a LightSpeed headset. What I do is use a splitter on the comm panel and record audio on my iPhone or recorder (keep in mind that your newer iPhones require a TRRS type plug (with 3 rings versus 2)
As the Guys have said, sadly no, it's just one way for entertainment purposes on the A20.
You can get a splitter lead for recording. Try typing the info in and several Pilot Stores come up with a splitter lead for most input Plugs that will allow you to break out Audio for the TX/RX.
If your Audio Panel allows an Aux, that will sometimes be worth looking at too?
All the best,

This is what I want to do also. If I can make a phone call with the A20 connected with the 1/8" cable that comes with it, shouldn't it output to a digital recorder?
The 1/8 Jack is a Music in only. If you are making a call it most likely is going out over bluetooth.
Hope this helps a little?
All the best,
