Is there a 2-in-1 charger/aux cable for mini-USB phones?

My wife wants to switch from her iPhone to either a Windows Phone or Android device, but one sticking point she has is the ability to use a single, charger/aux cable in her car. Right now she has a cable that charges her iPhone while also being able to connect to her stereo via auxiliary cable. I think it's a Kensington product. It has three connectors built into one cable. She prefers this over having two separate cables to manage. I need one with a mini-USB connector rather than the iPhone connector. So far, I can't seem to find such a creature, if indeed it even exists. My Google-fu is weak, I suppose.

What's involved in a car tune-up?

Car care: (1) How often, generally speaking, should I change my spark plugs and plug wires? (2) When a vehicle gets a "tune up," what, exactly, does this mean? What gets tuned? Thanks!

How do I get the "road fallout" off my car?

How do I get that black, tarry gunk off my vehicle? You know the stuff, splattering off a recently patched roadway and turning to stone on your fender. Should I scrape it off? Or is there some magical goop that will help dissolve it?
