Yeah, that's what I do in my Subaru (and take for rental cars). Only thing is, I think the iPod/iPhone navigation (of the music) is a lot better than car radios tend to do, so I plug iPod into aux-input jack and USB into a cigarette-lighter adapter (instead of the USB port) so the car radio won't try to take over navigation.
The USB stick is working quite well in the Leaf now, except of course only one level of heirarchy. But maybe I'll try to find a good used iPod for it too.
