Question iphone in center console as MP3 player??

Does anyone know if the iphone will work in the center console to listen to music on the stereo?? It does not list it in my manual. I would like to get the iphone, but unsure if I can use it this way.

Other people on here have reported that it fits OK at least the iTouch and its the same case.

I have ipod touch same size as iphone and it fits if you don't use any of the adapters included with your car. If you are upgrading from another ipod just take out the adapter and you will be all set.

Thanks for the reply back. I think I might buy the new iphone when it comes out and hopefully it will fit.

I have an iphone and it fits and works fine, but it's a bit too tall for the center console so the armrest doesn't close all the way. I used my old Ipod video on it still, just because if the phone rings I need to fumble and get it out. a bit of a pain.

Default it works but...

I have tried the iPhone in the console, and yes it does fit - but it is too tall for the arm rest to close fully. You'll want to click up your arm rest a notch so you don't damage the top of the phone.

You'll also want to be sure to put the iphone into airplane mode before you dock it. No telling what damage could happen if you get lots of calls while its docked. I doubt those speakers are shielded from the GSM interference.
