Blackberry Music Gateway - data through USB?

Question - the Gateway device gets power via a USB connection, and there's also an audio cable connection.


My car has a USB outlet, and I can play music from my phone by plugging it into that outlet.  Will the Gateway work by connecting it to the USB outlet alone?  Or, is the Gateway's USB outlet only for power, and I need to connect the audio port in order to transmit data?

IN the Gateway, the USB connection is for power only.
