APple 30 pin dock connecto to USB Micro case (Seidio Surface PLus)
The Seidio surface plus case contains an external battery that connects to the iPhone through the 30-pin dock connector. Seidio provides a micro usb connector on the outside of the case that supposedly supports both charging and synching of the iPhone while it's in the case.
Are there any adapters that will allow me to take a 30 pin dock connector and convert it to a micro usb? I have an integrated iPhone/iPod cable in my car and want to convert the 30-pin male connector to a micro usb male connector so I can continue to use my iPhone in the car while it's inside this seidio case.

I think these are what you are looking for. They turn the 30 pin dock connector into micro USB. I'm not sure the build quality of them and have no experience with either adapter.
USB to Micro USB or iPhone/ iPod Dock Adapter w/out Cable, CablesOnline IP-K02W on eBay!
For Apple iPhone iPad iPod Touch Adapter Micro Mini USB to 30 Pin Connector AC34 on eBay!
Unfortunately neither of those is what I'm looking for. The seiduo surface plus case completely hides the 30 pin connector ad gives you a micro USB on the outside if the case. It will synch and charge through this connector. I need to turn a male 30 pin connector into a male micro USB connector for my accessories to work

Ahhhh, gotcha! So you want to be able to plug in your Apple 30 pin USB cable into an adapter that will turn it into a micro USB? Let me see what I can find.
I just did some searching around and I don't think that make an adapter that would input a 30 pin and output a micro USB. Sorry man....

I found this one: Apple ipad Iphone docking 30pin female to Micro usb 5p male data charge adapter | eBay
Gave it a try and it only partially works: It allows the device to charge and will output the fact that something is playing to the head unit in the car, but audio isn't being passed over the cable.
The case with battery in it is a great idea, but without the ability to continue to use accessories, a rather ineffective one!!
