    Hi!
    Two questions:

    1) I use my ipod touch 2G in my car.
    I have a cable to an "AUX-input" and everything works great to listen to your music from the ipod in the car!
    BUT: My ipod just have to lay "somewhere" in the car like between the seat or on the passenger-seat...not so nice..!
    My question is: Have you guys seen any device where you can attach your ipod on the dashboard or something in the car? It would be very neat if you also could turn your ipod so you can go between "album-layout" and "list-layout"...

    2) I have a TV in my kitchen and I would like to use my ipod with it.
    I would like to use Safari and a "recipe-app" I have. (And also of course be able to see movies, listen to music and so on...)
    A perfect solution would be to just put the ipod in a "dock".
    Have you any ideas how I can solve this? (Maybe there is a "ready-to-use-device" for this or if you have an idea what to "pick together"...

    Greetings from Gothenburg, Sweden!

    for your first question. there are ways you can have your ipod in your car. for example you can use velcro if you have a case on, like in this video
    or if youre feeling constructive you can always put a dock right into your dashboard
    however, if you wanted to go all out, this is a nice product but its $50


    for your second question there are cables that connect your ipod to your tv but im pretty sure that they can only be used for video playback not safari or recipies

    your second problem, tv output
    apple makes an AV cable but it only supports video / music output to the TV.

    Hi again!

    Thank you for the answers!

    About the AV-cable: Do you think the future can hold a cable which can support all the contents of your ipod..?
    I.e. what you see on your ipod, you see on your TV-screen..!

    OK...but I canĀ“t really understand you..!

    You bought a "better" cable for +40$?
    ...and that one was promised to show "the whole ipod" (included Safari and so on) on your (TV)-screen?

    How was it?


    Any other?
    Can you see your entire ipod on a TV-screen?
    (Safari, apps and so on...)
