Just wanted to say that, RedFloyd, you are the man for coming out with this solution. I still can't believe how well it integrated and works.
I am now using my iphone daily and listening to podcasts etc.
Next I am considering purchasing a Bluetooth adapter for a hands-free solution. This one looks promising:
Compact and high quality.
Nice thing is the car cuts power to the plug when the ignition is off so the adapter can just be left in.
