Well as one should do with all things costing money, I checked on ebay and found that these puppies can be picked up from a number of suppliers for various vehicle brands for as little as $20. Probably remaindered from when the company pulled out of the u.s. The original prices I found on the official website were closer to $200. Still no tech support but for that small an investment who cares? I bought one just for the dock/holder to wire directly into my aux input and power supply without using the fancy Dension electronics. I'll let you know how it goes...the only thing i've seen like this is the dension system which u should have been able to find on similar threads. Search for it on the web and u will find that it is expensive, only available from foreign suppliers, and has no tech support.
well, i have experience with that site, located in HongKong. the delivery is quick, and the service is good. trustworthy!jennyyu said:
I have been playing sound out of the 30 pin connecter ever since i got the iPhone in my car. were did you get that info . it has worked all along.as of the v1.0.1 software update, iPhones will no play sound through the audio out function of the 30 pin dock cable.
this means any iPod charger/dock for the car, will work with the iPhone.
The iPhone will spit out the standard "this product not designed... blah blah blah yes/no" dialog box.
If you want annoying GSM interference, hit no... if you want clear music, hit yes.
As such, any attractive solution to putting an iPod in your car, will work with the iPhone.
Does anyone know of a iPod/iPhone car dock/cradle that acts as a charger (cigarette lighter) and a line-out connection?
Here is the best overall solution I can give you that would take care of 90% of what you want/needI've also had to use a workaround as I haven't found any one product I like - especially because I like to mount mine where I can use it as my GPS. I have an INCREDIBLE mount that attaches really securely to the window and then (sigh) have my charging cable going to my lighter thing and an AUX cable attached to my stereo. I tied the cables up in a pretty ribbon (a zip tie would work and be more manly) to keep them out of the way. It works really well but would love to find a perfect solution, too.
