    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.

    unfortunately the one I have (plugs into the aux port in my Pioneer HU) does, it will charge but that is about it how am I to illegally watch movies on my iphone instead of looking at the road!
