i have a 2g ipod shuffle, i can listen to it in my car via a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable connected to the aux socket of my car, but is there anything i can buy which will allow me to charge and listen to it at the same time?

iPod shuffle, 2g

    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

    Has anyone confirmed if this works or not? Thank you for your help in advance.

    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.
