    Is there a device to connect an iPhone to a tape player in car?

    I know you can connect an iPhone/iPod to a CD player but can you connect one to a tape player?

    No tape jokes either please!

    Yes got mine in pound shops they sell the tapes with the wire to attach your ipod/iphone. Hope this helps

    Yes from Maplin £ 7.99

    my poundland had none so i went here there Ok but you obviously lose some quality and there is back ground noise

    What's it called?

    Do maplin sell online?

    Thanks

    As above cant remember what they are called.

    Its a tape with a lead connected which you then plug into the headphone jack on ipod

    Or change your tape player for a newer more up to date player

    It's embarrassing holding my phone up in the air playing music!

    Usually just referred to as a cassette adapter or similar:

    amazon.co.uk/Bel…WVC

    Make sure to check the stereo out first though as some don't work with these cassette adapters as they keep trying to fast forward the tape when they think there's too much slack. There are fancier ones available in that case.

    Should be the same thing :?

    mine fits into the headphone part

    What you might find as I did with an i phone the jack wont go deep enough into the phone to make a good connection , so with a stanley blade you can trim down the plastic on the jack to allow it to slip further in, " ooh that sounds good ":w00t:

    Hmmm, does this apply to anything else?

    we used a cheap one at work and the sound quality was rubbish, stick with the ones from maplin
