Let's face it: a lot of Apple products are fairly expensive. Why purchase an iPhone or iPod charger when you can build one yourself? Keep in mind this is fairly difficult, but worth it if you don't want to spend money on a new cable.

If you're having issues, you can try watching it directly here in a variety of formats.

I added a 30-pin iphone cable to my car to be able to be able to charge the phone and send the audio signal to the factory radio. I'd also like to wire up some kind of switch and mount it on the dash to be able to play/pause/skip songs, kind of like how the audio controls on the headphones does it, except through the 30-pin connector. Does any one know how to do this?
