Post your custom iPhone docks!
Hey guys I've been thinking about ways to build a custom iPhone dock in my car so that when I hop in the car I can quickly and easily pop my iPhone into the dock and get going. I've been thinking about maybe acquiring some sort of cupholder dock but I also want to hear other people's ideas and see examples of custom dash work done. So post up pictures of what you have!
Here is an example from a Land Rover concept I snagged from engadget:
While we wait for the real smart geeks to figure out external touch screen control I think this will help inspire interest on the "ergonomics and usability" front. Call me lazy, but I think it's a pain in the *** to plug my iphone into the USB port/dock connector in the glovebox every time I get in the car and unplug it when I get back out. It's even worse if you're using an aux port + dock port charger. And if you're doing it that way where do you stick the iPhone so you can see it while using turn by turn? Well add another step to the process if you're putting it up on a window mounted holder.
