Does it exist? The Plan:

iPhone in the front of the car, connected to the cigarette lighter then to a swivel cradle (for horizontal or vertical use) with at least audio out (possibly video) something like this:
http://www.iworld.co.uk/iWorldSite/product/iPhone_Car_Accessories/KE_33430EU/Kensington_LiquidAUX_Deluxe_Car_Kit_for_iPod.htm

Then in the back row of the car something pretty similar i guess but HAS to have video out and will only be for an iTouch. I doesn't need to have the cradle because it will be intended to output to some headrest screens or maybe a flip down screen.

I have moved from installing my mini into the car to a solution with few ipods. This solves a few of the niggling issues with macmini carputers, namely power management, media syncing and dual screen/audio outputs.

All I need is a dock with video out that is made for the car environment.

Thx everyone!!

What about a dock like this or this? For the back, use the same thing plus the Apple Composite AV Cable.

Hi Wee, yeah the dock you linked to is the one I linked to, great minds think alike huh?

I just can't seem to find a dock that charges and outputs video made for the car (12 ciggy lighter powered)

Anyone got any other ideas?

OK so I seem to have hit the jackpot finally (why google oh why did it take this long!!)

For anyone else who is interested, iLounge has some great reviews of pretty much every (decent) ipod accessory

Now time to choose, so far i think the Belkin TuneBase, and the DLO Transdock are looking the goods.

I will post bak once I have decided and once i have personal review
