I too had a similar problem with my Phatbox recently. Worked fine in the 
cradle attached to my PC, but not in the car. I figured it might be a 
loose connection, since I had been over a rough road just before the 
problem arose. I don't know for sure whether that was the problem, but 
disconnecting, then reconnecting the cable fixed it. Reboot????
