Posted this question in the nano forum as well...
Ive got an iPhone and my sister has a nano. Were both trying to find a way we can have them sitting on the dashboard or console of our car. Dont want a big bulky device, but something simple. Found a few online...anyone thats purchased any of these before and has some comments good or bad would be appreciated...or if theres anything else you think would work. Looking for something unobtrusive and obviously the cheaper the better but still good quality

My Verizon iPhone is not compatible with the bluetooth in my car, a 2009 Hyundai Elantra. I was told by the Verizon rep, prior to purchasing, that it would be. Is there an adaptor I can purchase for use in the car? The phone is useless to me in the car.

When using a cassette player to my music through the iphone, there is always a loud bass interference. This doesnt happen when I use my regular ipod touch. What could be the problem?

I just purchased a monster cable so I can listen to my Iphone through the mini jack in my car. This cable plugs into the headset port on the Iphone and then to the mini jack. The cars MP3 player controls do not function with the Iphone. I have to change songs on the Iphone iteself and this makes it difficult to focus on driving.
Is there any product out there that will allow factory car stereo MP3 player controls to operate the Iphone?
Is there a way to get my music and podcasts to play on my 10 year old car which does not have an Aux/mp3 input?

I just got my first Iphone 4g.
I have a hyundai with a usb plug in it. It works if I use a flashcard with music on it. But when I plugged my Iphone in, the iphone beeped several times, and the car said usb reading error.
Is there something Im supposed to do before Im able to play my itunes library in the car.
Additional question. I presumed this USB connection in the car would also charge the phone, but it doesnt appear that works either.
Im completely new (2 days) to this entire smartphone world and would like a little advice on what I should do to get the phone/itunes to work in my car through the usb port

i have an old iphone 4 that i want to use with my car stereo. i have a stereo that has a ipod adapter, but i want to be able to control the ipod without using the remote. what i want to know is if there is a bluetooth adapter that plugs in the male ipad connector on the stereo that i can connect via bluetooth to my phone.
I used my Iphone for everything. Im trying to use the Iphone in the car so I can listen to the music and it works find. But I want to use it also so when someone call me I can hear them through the car speakers and they can hear me also. Right now I can listen to them but they cant listen to me. anyone knows a cable that I can buy that will work to listen to music and using the phone feature in my car.?
iPhone OS 3.1.3
Ive been looking for a good way to integrate my iPhone in my car. Ideally id like it to play music through my stereo but also to allow me to answer calls hands free when they come through.
I was going to by a Sony MEX-BT2600 which allows you to connect your iPhone through blue tooth. However the iPhone doesnt allow streaming of music through blue tooth. So i was planning on buying a Kensington LiquidAUX deluxe which connects through the AUX input.
My question is whether or not these two systems will work will together. If i play music through the aux connection will the Stereo recognize calls coming through and pause the music from my iPhone and allow me to answer the call through hands-free bluetooth?
Has anybody had success with something like this?

My wife has a Citroen C1 with an audio jack built in to the fitted car radio. Until recently shes been listening to the music on her iPod Shuffle via a cable from Shuffle to jack. Worked perfectly.
But now she has my original iPhone and the Shuffle has found a new home via eBay! My questions are:
Can my wife listen to the music from the original iPhone on the car stereo via an audio cable from iPhone headphone socket to car audio jack? I have bought an adaptor to allow for the recessed socket in the first generation iPhone. Will she have to switch to Airplane Mode using this setup?
I ask because in the latest issue of MacFormat there is a review of the Kensington LiquidAUX which connects an iPhone to a car stereo via an audio jack such as described above. Why would I pay £55 for this device when I can (possibly) do it cheaply with a simple cable?
Your advice would be much appreciated.

im looking for a car stereo that will allow me to connect my iPhone 3GS to it & make/receive calls through its speaker+microphone system, charge it AND allow me to use my Navigon GPS app, voice directions coming through the speakers. i dont want to fiddle w/ FM transmitters, listen to the music in my iPhone through Bluetooth & couldnt care less about it being able to play CDs - those are SO last century !...LOL...
i was looking at the Alpine line-up & am tempted to go that way, considering the rave reviews they consistently get. anyone has personal experience with a specific Alpine model they could wholeheartedly recommend ? i want to keep the whole experience as fluid as the phone itself : slide the phone on its support, it automatically gets connected + charging & EVERYTHING is ready to use. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Ive been to the apple store twice and still dont have an answer to this question:
Is there a product that will play my iphone in my car (through the a/v jack-much better sound quality) AND charge my iphone at the same time?
The one that came recommended by the salesperson in the store will not play if it is charging. I cant believe they wouldnt have a product like this

Hi. Ive had the mopar ipod adapter for my jeep for about 6 months now. I always used it with my ipod and it worked for for a while with my iphone. Recently I tried to use it and it didnt work. I think it stopped working about one or more of the firmware updates. I tried restoring the iphone and Im sure that the adapter still works. When I plug it in, the car stereo just says Communicating with iPod and remains there. Does anyoen have the same setup and or issue? Im currently running version 1.1.4. Any ideas?

Im interested in getting a car kit for my Iphone and I need your advices, opinions. I looked around but heard of some people having trouble with either the charger not charging, or damaging the Iphone, or badly designed holders with too short cables and so forth.
I need it to have the following:
Windshield mount (suction cup) (able to hold the Iphone horizontally)cigarette lighter charger (long enough cable, I think I saw one with a very short cable, dont know why)Do not need blue tooth, its ok to put the phone on speaker.the holder must not obstruct the headset output as Im using an audio cable with my car stereo.
Thank you very much.
I do allot of business on the road and the lack of voice dial is killing me.
does anybody have experience with the drive and play or the alpine ex-10?
anybody swear by any of the nav units that work with the iphone?
i use two cars to whatever it is it has got to be portable...thanks for your help and or reviews.
Newbie here. Like most people im going to ante up and buy the iPhone 3g tomorrow. One key reason is that i can store all my music and replace my CDs in my car stereo. Im going to purchase a car stereo that has and ipod connection, though Ive got several questions regarding the phone use while it is connected to the stereo.
1) Can someone tell me what happens when youre playing music on your iPhone through your car deck and the phone rings?
2) Do I have to always have a bluetooth headset on to answer the phone when its connected to my car stereo? Or can I pick the phone up and use the handset?
3) Does the music pause and let me answer the phone?
4) Or do I have to disconnect the phone and manually answer the line?
5) When I finish my call will the music resume where (if it can) paused?
Sorry to be so long winded, but the music integration into my car audio is a key feature I like; and if I can do both with just an iPhone that would be great.
Thanks in advance
I wanted some suggestion on a way to get my iphone songs to play through the FM stereo. Anything under $50, so Brand new headunit for my car is not an option. Any good FM Transmitters or any new ideas would be helpful.Hands free calling will be a bonus.

Does anyone have or know of some kind of mount or bracket that can be used to hold the iPhone in your car? I saw one that hangs from the windshield made by Kensington that looked pretty good.
Does anyone know how to play the iphone through your car? My car is a 2006, but it doesnt have an auxiliary jack for playing music. I tried buying an FM modulator, but it doesnt work. I also went to the apple store and was told by a customer service rep that the iphone doesnt work with FM modulators. Can anyone help?
I have an iPhone 3G running version 3.0.1 sftwre. I am having issues trying to play music through my car stereos aux port. Does the iPhone require a special Apple male to male cable in order to get the music to play through all the speakers? The music only comes out of my right channel speakers. When I plug another mp3 player non-apple into the stereo using the same cable, it plays through all of the speakers just fine. Does anyone have this same problem? Does anyone have an answer for me?

I have looked at many products that will let you play your IPhone over the car radio and was wondering if a cheaper method would work as well.
Why not use a car charger to charge the phone and run a 3.5mm cord from the speaker jack on the phone to the Aux jack in the car?
