your best choice for connecting you iod to your car stereo is physical connections.
-if you have an auxilary port on you stereo (small port
that fits a plug about the siz e of a headphone plug)
-then a mini audio cable from your ipods headphone
plug to this is a good connection. (20bucks or
-if you have tape deck this ia another cheap and good
-if you have an after market ipod ready stereo you can
get an adapter installed. See you local car steroe place
if none of the above are posible. you need an FM transmitter. this just hooks into the ipod eithe rby the dock connection (bottom) or the headphone jack.
it just makes a mini radio station of you ipod for about a 10ft range. Many are avaiable the monster version powers through the cigaret lighter. Belkin sells a battery power version. the griffin itrip plugs into the ipod and powers of the ipod. there are even a few that plug in the cigarette lighter and will power/charge and hold you ipod or ipod mini (now even for shuffles too)
Just bought a 60 gig IPOD, but stumped by the array of connections for playing in the car,cigarette lighter connection, wireless connection, IMonster(?) built into the car radio, etc.
I don't plan on exchanging the car radio system, I just want to play the IPOD through the existing radio in the best way, with the best availability and full use of the IPOD's features??
