    I wish the Apple Remote had BT capability.

    I use my iPhone 4 in the car. I use BT for phone calls and headphone jack plugged into the AUX input for music. Whenever I want to change the song, I need to pickup the iPhone.

    I so wish Apple could make the Apple Remote work with the new iPhone 4.

    The iPhone would need an ir port for that to happen. I recommend using something like this if you can get Kensington to confirm it works with the iPhone 4:

    If you're deck has an audio input on the back, you can have an even cleaner install by tapping a 12V source behind/under the dash, and feeding the dock connection somewhere like through the break handle opening, or into a pocket/compartment.
