Although there are iPod FM tuners that allow you to play your music through your car's unused radio stations, you can also create a direct connection with an iPod adaptor that uses the AUX setting on your car's radio. This method is recommended for travelling long distances, as the FM tuner can only be used with radio stations that are not in use. Third-party iPod adaptors are available wherever iPod accessories are sold. As of September 2010, there are several adaptors for connecting your iPod to your car's radio including the Belkin TuneBase, Monster iCarCharger and Griffin Autopilot (see Resources).

Turn on your car's radio, and turn the radio's dial to "AUX" or "iPod", depending on the model of your car.
Plug the 12-volt adaptor into the car's adaptor port, which is also known as the cigarette lighter, and plug the docking cable into the bottom of the iPod.
Plug the connector cable into the cable port located on the side of the 12-volt adaptor. Plug the other end of the connector cable into the AUX port on your car's radio. If using Belkin TuneBase, insert the connector cable into the headphone port on your iPod.
Slide the "Hold" switch on the iPod to the left to deactivate the hold feature, and press "Play" on the 12-volt adaptor to begin music playback.
