Intro: How to Build a Very Cheap Car Holder for an IPod Nano (3G)
The 3G version of the iPod is certainly one of the best iPods because you have every interface / menu and preview in the same orientation.
The fatty is also so compact and so lightweight that with the earbud jack-plug and the balance, the device stands right and never fell down.
This property is going to be used in our little "home-made" car holder. With this car holder you will even be able to watch videos/listen and choose your albums while driving and without having to install complex car holders or suction cups.
Of course one point to mention is that you need an AUX audio input cable for your car audio system.
Step 1: Step1: What You Need
Here is the list of the elements you will need to realize this iPod carholder:
1x Audio adapter Plug 3.5 mm stereo / jack 6.3 mm stereo
1x Audio adapter Plug 6.3 mm stereo / jack 3.5 mm stereo
1x Plastic link to tie around the aeration grid of the car
There are many audio adapter sets on the web for less than $3
Step 2: Step 2: 5 Minutes
Put the two audio jack adapters together.
Now carefully tie your plastic wire through the aeration grid of your car. Note the audio cable for the AUX input for the audio system.
Step 3: The Final Result
Now you have your own small but very cool entertainment system !
You can even turn the iPod in the direction of your passenger, so that you won't be disturbed by the videos while driving. Of course there is place enough to plug the iPod-USB to car cigarette lighter cable.
