First, if all you do is listen to your ipod library, yes the existing cable is fine. Plug in the phone/pod and tuck it into the bin.

Now, I use various streaming audio apps to channel the music from the iphone through the vehicles system just as it would a regular song from the library.

I listen to such apps as, TuneIn Radio, Shoutcast player, etc.. even Pandora (just to throw a name of something folks might know)... You have to change stations through the apps so I use a cup holder iphone mount in the cup holder near the bin to hold the phone, but due to the shortness of the cable the phone is held sideways or upside down.

Another reason, lets say I'm charging the phone and need to access it.. I cant really pick it up unless I unplug it.

Being that it is an iphone, my needs are probably greater than if it was a simple ipod that one can plug in and toss into the bin.
You iPhone people are indeed needy.

As a potential work around, I know it isn't ideal, but a regular charging cable (not using the iPod cable) and a headphone to AUX into the front panel of the head unit would work for that.

I'm not sure why an extension cable won't work for your purposes, but if you strike out, you could try that.

yes.. we are rather.. INFORMED

btw.. I have used the aux hookup and it works fine, however, the audio signal is FAR better and cleaner via the interface cable. The volume at that point is dependent on the audio system only, not the combination of the ipods and vehicles.
