    I have 3 car chargers in the 3 cars. I've tried this now with 2 of them, and the charging circuit appears to be different, not allowing charging through the FireWire pins.
    Guess I'll need to 'mod' them.

    It also doesn't work with my Alpine headunit connecter, which really, really sucks.

    I wonder if the dock will work. I know the phone won't fit as it has different dimensions, but thats nothing a few seconds of a dremmel sanding tool cant fix to shave some of the plastic off the dock to make the 3g fit into it.

    I had to dremel the spit out of my old dock to fit the iPhone 3G. My belkin car charger also doesn't work. Any thoughts on if it can be altered?

    Doesn't work with my Kenwood KCA-iP500 interface either.

    Try this, if you have a car audio setup that connects using the dock connector.

    Thanks, but you could have at least given us a link or a model number.

    It took me a few minutes of googling to find it.

    Car chargers are great and all but does anyone know of a FM car dock that charges the 3G? My old DLO one worked fine with EDGE iPhone but refuses to charge my 3G

    I have a really nice one at home that worked great with the 1st gen. I'll give it a shot when I get home.

    It is in a box somewhere now that I have my new pioneer deck
