Camaro + iphone owners without PDIM usb - a cheap cable solution

My wife purchased a 1LT recently that does not (yet) have the PDIM connection to the radio. She's prioritizing her upgrades and that won't happen immediately.

In the mean time, i picked up this inexpensive cable on ebay ($15 shipped) that charges the iphone and has a line out jack to plug into the aux input in the center console as well as the cigarette lighter located there. Since the cigarette lighter goes live only when the car is on, it's a great solution that won't run down the battery.

I hooked it up today and i must say for $15 i am really impressed. It charges her iphone and my iphone 3G and plays the audio crystal clear.

Of course you have to control the ipod/iphone directly, but it actually lays pretty nicely on the cup-holder for easy access.

If there is any negative, it's that the cable is about 5 feet long. I just tie-wrapped about 4 feet up and tucked it neatly inside the center console bin.

A picture of the cable is below. C-ya!

I already had a car charger for mine, just picked up the double male headphone jack, since both are right there in the center console, I can get a charge and listen as well.

Of course, my jack cost as much as one of these...
