    I just picked up the inline HD radio tuner for iPhone/Touch and I've got some mixed reviews, more on that later.

    The interesting thing is that it attaches to the dock port then there is about 1.5 feet of cord, then the unit (which is about the size of the previous generation clip shuffle). Your headphone cord plugs into the unit to complete the circuite between the Touch and your ears.

    This got me to thinking, it would be possible to create an tiny external camera that would fit into the dock slot, itself having a recessed dock receptacle (a repeater essentially). So the camera extension would be very small and almost appear like it were part of the touch.

    I'm curious is such an add on exists?

    Back to the HD radio tuner. It's a radio shack exclusive and I got it for $59 (retails for $79). The software app that comes with it is the highlight here. Its very well made and allows you to tune stations using a virtual rotary dial with a center button to toggle between manual tune and presets tune.

    The only problem I've had with it is some erratic behavior that seems to stem from the hardware handshake between the device and the Touch. At times the volume gets locked and once the audio kepted playing even though I had left the app (its apparently designed to only work while you are in the tuner app).

    Well, even if Appman did not mention that, one of the mods may do so instead... Now, if that's the case, will that be considered "rude"?

    Hello. Welcome to the forum.

    The answer is No.
    That's what the iPhone is for.

    And please, don't join and call us 12 year olds.
    First off, we're not 12 years old.
    Second, it's not going to get anybody anywhere but in flame wars.

    Have fun.

    The point is there are already a ton of threads with the same question, this:

    So, simple thing you should have done.

    Searched before your posted.

    But seriously, all I did was search "Camera attachment" and "External Camera". Search before posting next time.
