Before anyone asks, I have used the searchbar, and I couldn't find any relevant results.

Basically, my question is: is there any possible way to play the music on my ipod through the car radio? I have heard that there are 'adapters' but I'm not sure if they do what I want. Can someone tell me if I can play my music through my stereo, and also if there are any models that they would particularly recommend.

You need a double ended 3mm jack to connect from your ipod's output to your car. What your car needs is an input and an auxilary channel on the stereo, I think, to be able to play the music.

If you have a tape player, you can get aux adapters. Or you could buy a new stereo with ipod support, or with an aux input.

if its a car stereo with a cassette player there is a cheap cable you can get which connects your ipod and has a tape looking thing on the end

if its a cd player car stereo then im not sure :/

You can get adapters which play it through the radio, you can either get the 1/8 jack ones, or the ones that plug into the iPod plug thingy, they sound really good, my uncle uses one.

The apple ones can be like $80, but I've seen some going for like $30.

Get a FM transmitter, you plug it into your Ipod, set the frequency, and tune the radio to it

I've read about those, but apparently they can suffer quite badly from static, and radio interruption? Also, how much would one cost?

EDIT: sorry for the double post, I was sort of hoping someone would post soon after my first reply

My sister uses this in her car- it plugs into the headphone jack, so you can use it for any music player, so no need to get an official iPod one since you'll most likely be paying through the nose for it.

If you have a CD slot / tape deck then you can get an adapter to fit those, and that should do what you want.

Link to the CD one? I can only find tape ones.

Oh, sorry, must have missed that

Does it give off good quality, does it suffer from radio static, interruption, etc...?

I use an FM transmitter, but i hate it, other stations always cut through and it seems to drain the sound quality, no matter what frequency it is at. I'd just pay the extra to get a stereo with an auxilliary output

I got one for like 30 bucks at walmart.


I do get a little static sometimes, but it's not a lot, just a little bit that is hard to hear unless it's a quiet part in a song.


a friend of mine has one too, same kind as mine and i haven't heard any static on his, don't know why mine does.


edit: ^ well, I make sure I'm tuned to somewhere without a station. and I heard that the higher channels are less prone to static (don't know if that's true or not)

I use 107.1 cuz there's no station there in my area. it seems to do alright most of the time.

They have those FM transmitters but they really suck (really static) I prefer the cassette, or auxillery input honestly.
