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!

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.

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.

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?

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.
