The Belkin Auto Kit for iPod with Dock Connector will only POWER the iPhone unless you "hack" it by opening the case and cutting the WHITE accessory wire (connecting from the circuit board to the iPhone - cable). The white wire is (by means of a resistor) tells a iPod what kind of accessory "it" is - in the case of the Belkin the iPhone only "sees" it as a charger and disables the line out. Severing the white wire fools the iPhone into thinking the iPhone is a iPOD and both charges and enables line out. So far as I can see no ill effect (except the airplane mode warning - dismiss it).
