Default ipod ashtray dock

Hi Folks,

Have any one of you modded your car ashtray to turn it into a dock for the ipod or iphone ?

I will be installing the xcarlink to ipod adapter and am looking for a place where I can bring the cable out.

This is one option that I found, however the same adapter is not yet available for a toyota corolla. spec.dock - complete iPod and iPhone vehicle integration

I tried to do this to a zen and it did not work out as planned so be careful. Think it though.

I do intend to do this, but only around April/ May 2011 when I buy a car on my return to India. I hope to learn from your experience!

Hmm. Quite an interesting idea actullay. Infact quite a lot of possibilities to think of. Am certaininly going to explore this soon.

Though I smoke, i never really use the ash tray in the car. so might as well do away with it
