I have a new Ford Focus with the USB connection option, which supports iPods. However, to use it, you have to connect the iPod via both USB and 3.5mm jack for audio. This is a bit of a pain, as we're continuously swapping iPods.

I'm aware of the PocketDock, but ideally I'd like an all-in-one cable. I've found this (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/iPod-Firewire-sync-charge-with-line-out-audio-cable_W0QQitemZ150271823413QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item150271823413) on eBay which is what I'm after, but it's firewire and not USB.

Anyone know of anything that I'd be able to get hold of in the UK?

Edit: I think this (http://www.keyspan.com/products/uc25/homepage.spml) may be what I want, but it's marketed for Ford's Sync platform - which I believe is different to the European system in my vehicle. Not sure if the cable does anything special for this, instead of just being a dock replacement?
