    How can I get music streamed to my car speakers?

    DO I need to wait until a 3rd party solution comes out for the 8 pin connector?

    Yeah without at least an AUX port, it cant be done without an FM transmitter which IMO suck pretty bad.

    There are a lot of options and it's your call as to which one to use. The choices aren't that much different from the ones in the past (don't overlook the countless prior threads on the topic) except that the 5 has a Lightning port instead of 30 pin.

    • Aftermarket iPhone/iPod interface: I haven't seen any with Lightning connectors so far so you'd have to use one with a 30 pin to Lightning adapter.
    • Aftermarket aux interface for factory stereo
    • Aftermarket bluetooth kit
    • FM modulator: If you really don't care about sound quality or if you don't live in a major city with crowded FM bands.

    You can also use a cable from the headphone jack to the AUX port.

    Sure it can. In most situations there are aftermaket solutions availabe (see above).

    WalMart sells a Belkin cable for $6.88 that will go in the headphone jack and AUX port.
