Default Iphone 5 and car audio help

I want to plug my Iphone 5 into my car stereo somehow and listen to music and or podcasts through my car speakers.

Anyone know of an adapter that does this?

Does your stereo have an auxillary jack?

Plug into the Auxillary or USB. Or connect by Bluetooth. Or if you're really old school, cassette tape with auxillary plug in.

I just plug my ipod with an auxillary cord and use the ipod itself to change songs. Or when I want to charge it, I plug it in the USB port and change songs by the steering wheel or touch screen

If you don't have the 4 options I mentioned, I don't believe you'll be able to use an iphone/ipod

Agreed. Using FM to move music from your iPhone to your car is like running a blu-ray through your VCR and outputting VHS quality.

I disagree with the FM modulator remarks.

If you "GO ALL OUT" and spend that 20.00 bill you will get what you paid for. A minimally shielded device that is prone to signal to noise issues.

The Belkin Tunecast is a nice piece.
Monster make a better one,but it is almost double the price and putting you right under 100.00
The audible difference higher end transmitters/Modulators and a jack is imperceptible to the human ear.
