Actually Griffin powerpod uses a firewire cable. But you would need to by an extra cable since the powerpod cable is designed to be used with dock connecting ipods. The cable seperates from the car charging unit, so you just have to buy a 6pin to 6pin firewire cable.

WOW FAST SERVICE!!

I give sendstation 4 thumbs up for super fast service. I placed an order for a pocketdock line-out usb on sunday(5/22) and it arrived here thursday(5/26) from Germany to the US.

I needed a pocketdock line-out, cuz I wanted to hook my ipod to my Alpine car stereo. I didnt want to pay $99 for a ipod control interface box(KCA-420i). So, I'm connecting my ipod with an AUX Alpine cable(KCA-121B) for $15.00. Excellent sound quality for a low price, plus I didnt really care for the crappy Alpine ipod interface. I've tried the FM transmitter and cassette adapters and AUX is the way to go!

The pocketdock line-out USB is excellent. With the pocketdock, tune goes thru the dock port and not the headphones jack, which uses AMP and drains battery. I can turn the ipod all the way down and I can still hear music. I highly recommend the pocketdock if you have the budget. Another alternative is to get the Nyko Stereo-Link cable for $20. I like the pocketdock, cuz I can listen to music in my car and charge the ipod with a USB car charger.

The only flaw with the pocketdock is that I cant use it with my Lajo EXO3x case. I guess, I can cut a bigger hole on the docking port on the bottom. I could use the pocketdock without the lajo case, since I have the icondom on the screen and the back already.

I have found plenty of USB chargers for the car. What I have been reading though is that there are issues with the iPod Photo charging over USB in the car. Is this the case?

www . boxwave . com / products / carcharger / highoutput-car-charger . htm

Would something like that work as intended?
