I see many new cars have a female adapter for iPods. What type of cable is needed to connect an iPod to the car jack. It looks like it might be a double male end like the normal male end of the headphones. Am I guessing correctly? How hard are these jacks to find and how much do they cost?
If you're talking about what looks like a headphone jack - yep, just go to Radio Shack and ask for a 1/8" male to 1/8" male stereo (also may be called TRS) cable. Three feet should be plenty, probably run you about $10US. Sound quality will be much better than those damn iTrip radio things.
Oddly, Best buy had them at 10.99 in black and 7.99 in white. I obviously bought white. Why would one pay three extra dollars for black?
