I've bought the TT carkit for my iPod Touch and it is working fine with TT Europe (and Memory Map and CityMaps2Go, etc). BUT I am trying to see how to use it with Memory Map when out walking. I've got a Kensington LiIon battery back which powers the Carkit and tops up the iPod, and so it all works fine away from the car. But the combination is a bit bulky, and what I really need is an iPod dock extension cable which will allow me to leave the Carkit + battery in the rucsac, with a cable leading to my handheld iPod Touch.

Are you following this?

I got a cable from ebay, but it does not have the right functionality, or at least the iPod is not seeing the GPS data.
Anyone know where I can get a cable that will reliably bring the GPS signal from the TomTom Carkit cradle to my iPod Touch?
iPod Touch with Holux GPSlim236 and TomTom cradle for car use. iPhone 3GS.. TomTom Europe. Memorymaps.

I have used this cable http://www.cablejive.com/products/Dock-Extender-Cable.html with an iPhone and it works fine. Try Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/CableJive-Dock-Extender-Cable-White/dp/B001ERSONI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1284178392&sr=8-2 I purchased my in the USA but I think it may be the same cable. You will need to read about each cable at the two sites to make sure they are the same.
