"3.55m"... Laughing

You'll want a 3.5mm TRS connector cable. Something like this which connects on your headphone jack on the iPod.

Sorry I meant 3.5mm.  Thank you for your reply.  Will this type of cable also charge the ipod when the car is running?  I got the impression when I picked up the car than one end of the cable need to be the plug that goes into the bottom of the ipod, is this not the case?

A 3.5mm TRS connector doesn't charge your iPod.

You'll need some proprietary system to connect to the 30-pin connector on the base of the iPod to charge.

Looking on the Apple intl website it shows a cable but does not me tell it what it is called and after a lot of googling I cannot find the correct one.  Back to googling again I guess.  Thanks for your help.
