Well, you probably know this, and it isn't in-dash, but here is how I
use my iPod in the car. Basically, you get a cable that connects to
the CD-changer outlet. Not a universal solution, but far, far better
than the FM transmitters and cassette adapters.

Yup... but of course, an iPod is not something with an interface
meant to be used in a car, even with the remote. You can't see what's
playing unless you hold it in your hand (and with the light on)....
it's a nice workaround, and I use my iPod in the car on any long
drive I take, but it's just not the same as a product built
specifically for my car.
