    To connect your iMac to the headunit you have a few choices. If you have RCA inputs on it, use a RCA to mini adapter and those. If you don't have those but have a CD changer hookup, some manufacturers (Kenwoods do for sure) sell a CD changer to RCA convertor, so you could use that and the RCA->mini cable. If you don't have any of those, your stuck with either a cassette adapter or a FM transmittor.

    There's a site that caters to that kinda thing, www.mp3car.com, although I don't know how mac friendly they are.
