check out my new in car solution put together with some very inexpensive parts. parts : some plastic board, a 8$ ipod car charger from autozone, and extra cigarette lighter well, a car stereo with aux in and and ipod dock. we cut the plastic to fit the dash, cut a whole for the stereo, wired the charger and audio in to the dock and painted it all black. we wired in an extra cigarette lighter well to plug in the charger so that it could remain hidden behind the faceplate. by using the dock i can just drop the ipod on there and it will play and charge, without having to plug in any cables.
