Where can I get an iPod dock connector that has power in, and audio out? I would like to have a direct input to my car, and just use one cable.
I know that I can get an FM transmitter or something with such a cable, but that is to expensive to pay for the plug. I do have a cable that powers the iPod, but I have a separate plug for the audio, and on the old iPods the audio and dock connector are on opposite sides. Is there some site that sells just that plug?

Why not just have that be two wires with the old dock and just tape em together or something?

Because the headphone plug is on one end of the iPod, and the dock connector is on the other. If I had a newer one where it had the connectors on the same side I would not care.

You could use one of these, though you wouldn't need the composite video.

It would be cheaper to buy a FM transmitter that used the cable I wanted. The other problem with my iPod is that the headphone plug is getting old, so if I jiggle the plug it will pause. And it will often pause when I break hard, or take a sharp corner. So if I have the power and sound going through the dock connector I will kill 2 birds with one stone.

The ipod dock that I have integrates a line out and the proprietary ipod plug next to each other... Would this not be sufficient?

I would have to find some way to mount it, but yeah, that would do the job.

I'd like to see what the inside looks like as far as the back side of the pins. Are they set up with solder wells? Or maybe a small PCB?

Well, my iPod stopped working today frown
And then later today I checked my mail and the connectors had come. Oh well, this one is on hold for a while. But I will post pics of the connector.
