Wanna hook up my Ipod to my Car

Recommended Posts

Im wanting to hook up my Ipod Nano to my soon-to-be-bought car so that i can play all the songs from the ipod through the car speakers. Whats the best way of doing this, and whats the best peice of kit to buy? I dont want anything too fancy, just somthing that will do the trick. The car has a CD player ( its a Ford Fiesta 05 plate with standard ford fiesta 2005 model cd player) and i wanna hook it up through there. Not really bothered if you can charge your Ipod whilst playing in your car, if anything id prefer it NOT to do that! Got the mains charger here.ANY suggestions would be such a help, safe

Get an Ipod to CD-Changer Input cable.If your CD player has a CD Changer input on the back.If its a cheap Head Unit, chances are it wont have any sort of input. Give us the model name and Ill check it out for you.

Anything other than an actual ipod compatable stereo is absolute sh*t trust mei tried about 4 different products before i purchased the Alpine ipod stereo was about £300 but the quality is great the sound quality on anything that wrks through frequencies is sh*tif you dont mind sh*t quality then buy anything but i advise swapping out your whole stero tbh.
