How To Connect An iPod To Your Car Speakers


As a portable device, the iPod is often used by people who want to hear their favorite music and audio while they’re on the go, driving in their car. If you want to use your iPod while you’re driving, but aren’t sure of the best way to go about it, then here is a guide to the many options available.

Connecting Your 3.5mm Stereo Connector

In most cases, you can simply use an extension 3.5mm stereo connector. Connect one end to your iPod headphone jack, and the other end to the aux input of your car stereo system. You may then need to select the aux input feature on your car’s audio control panel.

If your car doesn’t have the right input jack, but has a cassette tape deck, then take advantage of a cassette adaptor. These are sold online and in a huge number of car stores, and are extremely easy to use.

Using Your iPod After It’s Connected

The beauty of these connection methods is that it’s still extremely easy to use your iPod after it’s been connected to your car stereo system. In fact, it’s exactly the same as if you had your headphones plugged in! Just browse your songs and select music or playlists as you normally would.
