    What would be helpful to know in the first place is what kind of car do you have and does your radio have a cd changer option not in use(assuming its a factory radio). If so you can probably order a part that is capable of using the empty port for the cd changer as an auxillary input. Otherwise the only simple solution is to use everyones favorite fm modulator.
    It would have also great if you first before posting. It just gets annoying seeing the same type of post when these type of questions have already been addressed more than a fair share of times.
