    so my brother got an iphone the day of the pricedrop [pat on the back]
    and he wants to play it in his car
    but his current tape deck cable doesnt fit the iphone
    so he tried putting it on the dock and using the audio out from the dock
    everything clips right
    but when we tested it, the music starts playing like 3x faster than normal
    they sound like alvin and the chipmunks fast.
    i also have an adapter on my car for my current 5g ipod
    its the pin connector
    it connects perfect with the iphone
    but again, the music starts to play at a rediculous speed
    WTF?!

    Tape deck adapter? What is this, 1997?

    Are there any iTrip type things out there that will work and play the music through FM modulation?

    we haven't tried the itrip yet but fm transmiter quality is not so great. From my experiance, pin adapter> tape deck> fm transmiter. Its so weird. I understand if it doesn't work at all, but the speed of the music baffles us.

    which adapter do you have on your jetta? I have an 02 gti with an adapter I bought from enfig motorsports. I think its a blitzsafe pin adapter that replaces the cd changer part of the head unit

    It's not an Enfig... Can't remember the brand off the top of my head. But it too replaces the CD changer option of the head unit.

    That's really interesting. Just FYI, there are no FM transmitters for the iPhone yet because there will be a lot of interference. Don't ask me why, I know that people have iPods with FM transmitter with their cell phones sitting right next to them, but that's what I've read.

    From the sound of it your car adapter doesnt work well with the iphone.
    I think theres a few ones out there that work on the iphone without any probs. Not all will work though.

    honestly?

    wow.

    I even know what an LP is or an 8 track... and tapes were phasing out of mainstream sales by the time I was six!

    All I'm saying is you must be pretty sheltered, or you didn't listen to music or go outside before 1998... :D

    Who's using tapes or tape decks nowadays though :D
    Everything is CD or MP3 compatible. Imagine if I had to transfer all my music from cd's or mp3 library into tapes. And wait a few minutes to try to fast forward to the next song or trying to skip 3 songs down :D
    How much is a CD deck for a car cost anyway? $50-60?
    Why bother?

    Not my '96 Range Rover but right now i am in the process of saving for a new sound system for my car but a $10 cassette adapter is doing a fine job of tying me over till i can find the $1600 for the system:)

    Good luck saving for a sound system getting 14 mpg on premium. My parents have one. Love driving it, but hate filling it up.

    You know, you can get a new CD deck in your car without buying an entirely new car right.

    Thats why in my previous post i said i was saving up for one but the casette player is doing fine tying me over till i get one and when you have an old english vehicle a lot of unexpected problems pop up that cost more then they should, I have to fix a fuel pump, change the oil, get a new tire that they dont make for my vehicle model anymore, and fix my driver's seat before i can get into a sound system :)
