And which batteryless Bluetooth adapter will do this job? AFAIK theThe Socket CSA is 2" or less in size, and can get its power from Pin 9 ... you can wire pin 9 on your mount with 5 volts.
The adaptor doesn't seem to stick out any further than a DB9 would .... I don't think it would be too vulnerable to "attack" if I recall where the connector is.
BTW, I think reworking the mount's electronics to add Bluetooth would very well require RECERTIFICATION by the FCC ...
If I recall correctly, that can cost upwards of $20k - Roland could comment as I am sure he knows the cost.
(The electronics have to be evaluated for the FCC to prove that they do not have significant RF radiation - I'm not sure if a simple rework
would require this, but it would not surprise me)
Your mileage may vary.
