    What's a cheap but good way to play music on your iphone 4 through your car speakers.

    Is the cassette adapter the cheapest? Also where can you pick these up? Best Buy or Fry's or do I have to order them?

    Thanks!

    PS: Sorry, this answer can probably be found on the forums but I want the best of the best....just like Power support is the best screen protector!

    Maybe an FM transmitter would work? Or do you want a wired connection?

    FM transmitter? I'm assuming your car does not have an auxiliary in otherwise it would a simple matter of buying a 3.5mm male to male audio cable for like $0.65 on Monoprice.

    I forgot to mention I drive a 1995 Toyota Avalon. I'm not sure whether or not the car has the auxiliary thing you're talking about.

    Would something like this work?

    If you have a tapedeck I would say an adapter for that would be better than an FM transmitter, I hate having to keep switching stations to get a connection.

    Yes that would work. Auxiliary in is basically a fancy way of saying standard 3.5mm audio jack (like the one on your iPhone). But like the post below, a cassette tape adapter would be better. Sometimes you might not get strong connection using the FM transmitter.

    I agree.

    Dude if you have a cassette player, go to Wal mart or any electronic store spend $5 on the cassette to mp3.

    I see a lot of people with the Philips cassette to mp3.

    They are all going to pretty much sound the same.
