    Hello, I'm trying to find a compatible auxiliary + charging in one product for my iphone 4.

    - I know that some products give that airplane mode warning: honestly I don't care as long as it works.

    So what I'm looking at is the Kensington 2-in-1 charger (MSRP $39) and the Griffin Autopilot (MSRP @ apple store $49).

    Any personal experience with these products? Well...the kensington 2 in 1 is not available yet but only for pre-order. However, my brother has an older discontinued kensington aux+charger accessory that works amazing. It gives the airplane mode warning but the quality is amazing and I'm so sad to see it is no longer in production :(

    Which do you guys recommend? Or are there other products? Thanks.

    I loved my griffin autopilot until it got stolen from my car. Will be purchasing a new one when funds allow.

    I have a belkin holder that has 2 USB ports and an aux on the side. One 500ma and a 1000ma.

    ProClip just announced an iPhone 4 specific holder with a built-in cigarette socket charge cord. Might fit your needs:

    I have this and love it:

    I've had it for just over a year and the swivel is starting to get a loose when I turn the car. I haven't been able to find anything else like it. Charges it, and has the AUX pass through. It's around $40-50 on other sites but macmall has it for $20 so I think it's a steal at that price. I may order another one to replace my old one if I can't get it to stop swiveling

    Edit: I can confirm it works just fine with iPhone 4!

    I've been using the Griffin Autopilot for a while now. It works but be warned, if you are using a bumper case, the dock connector is the older "fat" type that won't fit.

    If thats the GOgroove FlexPod+, it works with the Iphone 4. I bought it about three weeks ago and love it. Sound quality is decent (not CD Quality or anything like that) but for a FM Transmitter, it works pretty well.

    If have this and it works great, but I often get a popup error saying it's not compatible, but it does work fine.

    I would also suggest ebay for these kinds of cables, they're everywhere. Just keep in mind the cheap, cheap ones sound horrible.

    I have the Griffin AutoPilot, and it works great with the iPhone 4. I love the music controls on the part that goes into the cigarette lighter. (Those controls even work with third-party apps like Rhapsody. Lovely!)

    The "not optimized" message comes up when you plug it in, but NoAccessorySplash (available in Cydia) helps with that.

    Autopilot is a no braining but I don;t want to pay the money to get something with an error message. AND I don't want to jailbreak...
