07-12-2008, 09:04 AM #13G iPhone does not work with Gen I car chargers
I have 3 car chargers in the 3 cars. I've tried this now with 2 of them, and the charging circuit appears to be different, not allowing charging through the FireWire pins.
Guess I'll need to 'mod' them.

I wonder if the dock will work. I know the phone won't fit as it has different dimensions, but thats nothing a few seconds of a dremmel sanding tool cant fix to shave some of the plastic off the dock to make the 3g fit into it.

I had to dremel the spit out of my old dock to fit the iPhone 3G. My belkin car charger also doesn't work. Any thoughts on if it can be altered?1win.1 loss.1 draw

Doesn't work with my Kenwood KCA-iP500 interface either.
Try this, if you have a car audio setup that connects using the dock connector.

Car chargers are great and all but does anyone know of a FM car dock that charges the 3G? My old DLO one worked fine with EDGE iPhone but refuses to charge my 3G
