Default replacing the lame car phone plug for a usb one?

has anyone ever tried this? i am thinking that replacing the phone adapter in the center console for a usb port would allow for an ipod or something without having to go through a lot of grief and rewiring.
thoughts?

I'd say its at least worth a shot, seems like it should at least work for power if nothing else
