USB cables...

Does anyone know if there are multi-purpose cables that will charge and allow the use of the 3.5mm jack? I would like to use my GNex instead of my iPod for music in the car, but it would also have to charge (battery life is iffy).

Anyone try to use their USB cables to play music on their car stereos like we can with iPods via the USB cable?

Don't know if a usb cable from another phone with audio out would work. There are cables like that out there.

Or just a dock/navdock that takes care of it all, I think that's what we are waiting on.

Personally I just use bluetooth in my vehicle, I know that some audiophiles want a direct connect, but that's more than I need.
