    My car has an aux port in the stereo but my old ipod touches headphone jack doesn't work what so ever.

    I can use the ipod on a dock through the 30 pin connector so I know this part works, I was wondering what could I use to do 30pin -> 3.5mm to plug into my car?

    Normally you'd just use a 3.5mm male to male aux cable and plug it into the ipod port but that's broken so I need a different solution.

    Thanks for the quick response. Glad to hear it's possible.

    I'll look for something similar to that. That's a little more stuff than I need and costs $30 which is about the value of this old thing hahaha...

    I currently use a dock in the house but in the car I can't do that.

    How about this?:

    I assume the quality is very poor but I'd be wiling to risk it for $6.

    Not sure why that is. Just clicked it and it works for me.

    I just ordered a 30 pin male to usb and 3.5mm for $4 on ebay... chances are it won't last long but it's something :)

    Thanks for making me aware these existed.
