I have a BMW M3 and i use the BMW iPod integration kit. It works AMAZINGLY. problem is it is only for BMW's.
These guys make a better one, i dont know which other car's they make it for. http://www.dension.com/main.htm
Alpine also sells a kit to hook up to their decks.
here is a pic of what mine looked like in my old car, in my M3 i moved it by the hand brake so i can still talk on the phone and once im done with my call, the music comes back on. it is the perfect hook-up for iPhone/iPod car integration.

Do not use a Belkin auto kit for a charger. You can modify the Belkin for audio output only, but so far they are dangerous to use for charging.
I would recommend buying a dock extension cable from cablejive, and the factory dock, and a usb car adapter.
wont be super clean, but you'll get safe charging, line output, and no nag screen.

Does the iPhone work with old iPod connectors? I have a 2004 Mercedes E-Class with iPod connector, but I haven't tried it yet because of the charging issue.
