So i just got the new Android HTC Evo phone and its great! expcept it dies in like 5 hours.. so out in the truck i discovered...
If you have an aftermarket HU with a USB connection, you can charge your phone AND ipod, while having your iPod played.
at the usb cable running through my glove box, i plugged in a 2 to 1 usb splitter so i can plug in the ipod cord and the phone cord, letting my ipod still be functional with music from the HU.
Just a discovery i had and maybe it might save someone $20 and space from going to buy a ciggarette lighter charger.
