Looking for iPod/Touch/Nano/Phone charger with line-level out

In my car I use an old Griffin cigarette lighter charger for my touch, iPod, Nano etc. It has a "line out" 3.5 jack on the AC end which I use to connect to the RCA inputs for my AUX stereo input. The charger/cord etc has seen better days, not to mention the jack that connects to the iPod had the plastic break off (nephew's fault lol) and it's just the bare metal now. I'd like to replace the whole thing but I always seem to have difficulty in finding one that doesn't have a volume slider/amplifier built INTO the cigarette plug. I want it just to be pass through sound so there's no finding a "good level" for the amplifier.

Now I know I could use a dock and just plug into Line Out but that would mean I'd have 2 cables coming out the 3.5 and the power, and I've got a little holster I set the iPod in...anyone know of any good chargers with an unamplified line-level through?

I want it to be simple like this with the line level like this and no stupid playback buttons built into the unit

Thanks in advance!

This Sik Pimp is actually pretty awesome if only the line-level out wasn't on the dock connector it would be perfect!

You are going to have a hard time finding a unit with line level output. Most of them either allow the iPod to control the volume (just like Apple's dock, that isn't a true line-out) or have their own volume system. The good news is that using the volume at 100% provides the same output level as a true line-out. Something such as this or this will work.

Stay away from flex based charger+aux units such as this one. All of them rotate rather easily (where it plugs into the 12V/cigarette adapter) when your car is taking a turn. This means that the iPod basically gets thrown from the device.

That one is still RCA ends, the one I have from soundgate charges and ends in the 3.5 for my aux jack. It even comes with 2 ways to power it, cig lighter plug for the fast easy set up, or a wire harness if I want it cleaner install, I chose the cig lighter for now, hard to find power in my Chevy truck. got my unit from Amazon.com PDCBLPAK.
