If your player is now connected to the ignition (you are telling it
starts (at least in chg-mode as soon as you start your engine), isn't
it simply dying when you turn off your car ?
How to you save settings like resume then ?

Furthermore: This hack is not recommended at all on recV1 and archos
players as the charger feeds 9V to the unit and should not be used
anymore. The 6V wall socket adapter is at least still useable on the
recFm and recV2.
