Just received my PassPort and must report that it ONLY CHARGES.  It is not a true passthrough as they bill it on their site (and in the instructions that are included with it,) where they claim it passes through audio, video, and charging capabilities.  Don’t waste your money.

I disagree.  On the Scosche web site, it says:

“Allows car integration accessories that do not support charging to work with the iPhone 3G and recently released iPod models”

It doesn’t say ‘to charge the iPhone’ it says ‘to work with the iPhone’.  If it’s only charging and not playing music, I wouldn’t call that ‘working’.

Jeremy, Tom is quite correct when he says they claim it has pass-through features. 
The instructions state:
- Enables Charging
- Audio/Video Pass Through
- Control Pass Through
So, uh, they DID say that “anywhere”
And is Tom really your buddy?  Just wondering.

For whatever it’s worh though, my passport does seem to work fine as a pass-through.  Tom, you might just have a bad unit.
