your car in this case its just a speaker
what you can do, its buying a special charger for the car, and buying a special adapter in the shape of a "Y" so it has two inlets and one outlet, one inlet for the charger, another for the cable that connects to the car and the outlet to connect to the ipod.
hope this was useful

I purchased a Griffin Dock adapter from Amazon and it is supposed to allow you to switch from play to charge with a little toggle switch on the adapter. I can't use it because I have a 4g shuffle and it won't fit. so I have to return it.
