Why use BT audio if you're going to have it plugged in for charging? If you're going to attach a cable, you might as well run the wire into the armrest console for USB audio playback + charging. Plus, running a USB cable is less bulky and in the way than the cigarette lighter charger.

Cool, post a review.
