Default Car Dock INPUT -- what Jack fits?

Has anyone Hardwired their S50 to their car? If so what jack will fit the Audio Out on the back of the car dock? (or are people using the headphone jack?)

AND -- has anyone hardwired the power into the car or just using the cig lighter?

Thanks in advance

Dont know the answer to the first questionI think you can use the fm out jack on the car dock....that's the jack that you install the little pigtail antenna to.....but as far as hardwiring the power cord you must be carefull. The cigarette adapter has a power reducer on it so your not supposed to cut the wire. If you want a hidden power cord you should install a hidden cigarrette lighter under the dash board and run the factory power cord that came with the s50 to that source.

Don't quote me on this but I believe there is a RCA out if you have an RCA in on your car, all you need is the cable. I'll confirm this later, unless someone else can agree with me.

Mine was propiteary technology in the radio so I would have had to replace the factory radio to use anything other than the FM tuner.

I have my Car Adapter working IN my house--and it works great...I will look again at the back. I know there is one hole for audio out....not sure it is an RCA.

I have a Touareg --- and they sell an adapter plus that hooks into the radio and allows you to use an INPUT. I just have to find the correct adapter that will hook up to the S50.
