iPod audio- use standard USB cable and separate headphone cable?

So, I currently have a y-cable that is on the fritz. I searched and read through the sticky on the y-cable but didn't see anything covering it specifically, so I apologize if this has been covered before and I missed it. But can I just use a standard 30-pin USB cable on my iPod and a separate double-male 3.5mm audio cable in replacement of the y-cable?

Define "work." Audio will come out, but you won't have any wheel control or head unit display or any of the other goodies the Y cable brings.

Yeah, that is where I bought the first one, it lasted about a year. Just ordered another one for like $10. I just didn't know if the y-cable was a convenience thing, or it was required for proper control.

At least, I assume it's the y-cable that has crapped out. That is the easiest place to start...
