PostSubject: Connecting Your Ipod To Your Car Stereo   Thu Nov 10, 2011 4:11 pm

The ability to connect your iPod to your car stereo is a relatively recent innovation, but it has rapidly become the desired way for drivers to enjoy their music. The advantage of this is clear in that you have access to a large library of music without having to carry around a large case of CDs.

Previously, the only way to connect your iPod to your car stereo you would have to buy additional equipment to do so. There are a number of options available. The easiest and cheapest way of doing this is via a line input. This is achieved through plugging in an audio cable into the headphone socket of your iPod and then plug the other directly into your stereo system. In order to do this your system needs to have a line input or aux input.

Another option is to send the data from your iPod to your car stereo on an FM frequency by using an FM transmitter. It is then a matter of tuning your radio to the frequency produced. Whilst this may be a convenient solution in that it works in any car, it has serious drawbacks in that the signal is likely to be blocked while driving around when you encounter radio stations that transmit on the same frequency.

A far more effective solution is a specifically designed iPod adapter. This allows you to control your track selection directly from your stereo system. However, the downside of this is that these can be quite expensive and are not widely available.

These days there are a number of car stereos which have a USB port suitable for connecting your iPod. You can also use this port for connecting a thumb drive or other such USB memory device. This is obviously far simpler than using external connecting devices and you can control your track selection directly from your car stereo.
