Hello all XDA friends! Finally, the 9ft microUSB-to-aux-out cable is available as a stand alone product. There has been tons of requests for this as many of you already have a phone holder in the car and you only need the cable so you can play music/gps sound (app sound) through the car-speakers. The microUSB end plugs into the phone phone and it will charge the battery when the standard USB end is plugged into a car-charger or into the vehicle's USB port (although some USB ports have slow charging rate!).

We've also seen a huge interest in using this cable together with a home stereo or with the "old boom box". Very cool application is to connect the Galaxy phone to a boom-box and put the handset into the beach bag (9ft is a loooong cable!).

When you inserted the cable the "DockMode" will start. Download an app like the iBOLT Dock'n Drive and mange your favorite apps this way. You can also set Slacker Radio, TuneIn or Ulysee Speedomter or CarHome Ultra as default "home screen". Note that you can also set WiFi and Bluetooth to go on or off automatically when handset is connected to the cable.

This new version of the "Dock'n Play" cable should be static free and will provide great sound quality. Feel free to use this thread to ask any questions about Samsung DockMode, aux-out etc. The developer for CarHome Ultra and Ulysee Speedomter can also chime in and answer questions if there's a need. Have fun!

The price is $19.95 and it's available for Amazon Prime for a few days (only a few hundred in stock).

Yes, if you buy the xProDock this cable comes with the Dock. However, if you buy the sPro or the ProDock it does not come with the holder. We have a lot of people wanting this as they either don't want to use a holder/dock in the car or they already have something else that works well.

The xProDock I see on amazon (prime) says is comes with a usb cable and it has a picture of a regular usb cable.

I want to buy the dock because I know I will be able to use with my and my wife's phone but I want to make sure I get this cable too

You guys should check out in-depth review of iBolt xPro Dock I just posted here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2349447

This one is universal Samsung dock for S3, S4, and Note 2. Bar none - the best car dock and the best value with cable already included. New Dock'n'Drive free app is slick as hell, and I tested it to work great with S4!

Are you talking about original Sammy 2A charger or some ebay $4 charger that claims to be 2A while in reality current limited to under 1A (and thus due to losses and conversion efficiency down to 720 mA)?

I have a cheap charger for 5€ but with simple USB cable : 1.9amp.
With iBolt cable (for car mode and audio out) just 0.7amp

Tested with Galaxy charging current

no shipping to UK? I think I'll make my own one, 9ft is a bit too long for me and I can also use quality components to cut down on interference and lowered charging rates.
