Imagine the disappointment when trying to pair a Monster iCar Play 800 FM Transmitter with a new iPhone comfortably wrapped in a Speck CandyShell. In short, the business end of one does not fit into the business end of the other.

I've looked at the SendStation Dock Extender, but is there really any guarantee that this will fit into my case.

Does anyone have any experience with this or another dock extender, or is my best option to be more careful when buying a replacement case?


I ended up buying an adapter by Cable Jive. It fits the case and works just fine.

Just eyeballing it, it looks like the extender would fit. If not, maybe take a Dremel to that case and widen the slot?
