    I'm looking for a cable that does RCA audio out (white and red wire) with USB for charging that'll connect to the iPhone dock. I want to hook up my iPhone to my car stereo using only one cable to charge and audio out. The composite and component cables apple sells won't work, I tried and for audio they work fine but if I try to watch any video it doesn't show up on my iPhone because it thinks it's hooked up to a tv. Right now I have it hooked up through the headphone jack for sound and a USB to charge, but would like to have only one cable instead of having two cables, one coming out of each side of the phone. Thanks for your help.

    You would need to have a car stereo designed for an iPhone or iPod. Mine does all this with the included dock cable. (Pioneer AVH P3200BT)

    I had an older head unit that had the red/white/yellow inputs but like you have found, it didn't really do much.

    How about a way to disable video out with the composite adapter?

    Thanks, that's close to what I'm looking for except I would like to have RCA audio out (red and white) instead of the 3.5mm headset jack out. So far I still haven't found one, considering maybe one of those cables you showed and getting a 3.5mm to RCA adapter, but not sure yet.

    Update for anyone else in the same situation.
    I ended up getting a blackberry Remote Stereo Bluetooth Gateway, its basically a stereo bluetooth reciever thats send the audio out to your stereo via the aux cable. It works great, I have it tucked behind the dash so it isn't visible, when I turn the car on it connects automatically to the phone and the audio quality is great. I tried the belkin before that they sell at the apple store and the audio on that unit was really bad and compressed, this one sounds much better. In all, the unit and charger cable with car converter cost around $50 bucks after shipping. Here are the links for anyone interisted.
