    Has anyone found a car charger/fm transmitter that fits into the iphone 4 with the bumper on? The griffin does not snap all the way in unless i remove the bumper.

    You have a few answers.

    1) You shave down your bumper. Not the best answer, but has worked for some.

    2) You purchase a docking cable extender:

    Otherwise, I almost feel like the bumper's small area is a good thing. I know that some of our current cables won't work, but it's an incentive to accessory companies to stop making junky cables and make them more slim and nicer looking.

    These are the only solutions I know of right now. Hope this helps.

    Damn! With the price of those extenders I should just invest in a dremel :(

    Anyone else have any luck finding an FM transmitter/charger that works with the bumper?
