Default Connect iPod to the car stereo

Does anyone know a good adapter for listening to songs from Apple devices in the car? I know that there are special car adapters for this. Can you recommend any? I was searching and the best reviews for connecting mobie devices has car adapter AUX Link. But before buying it I'd like to get some more information...Is someone using it? What's your opinion? Any other solutions?

I bought car adapter AUX Link almost one year ago. Really satisfied. Great sound, no technical problems so far. Had to spend more time than I was planning to install it, but finally it worked out well (I did the installation on my own, but at any service center you can have it done in no time). I was buying here AUX Car Kits. It's official store so they have lowest prices (at least when I was buying it) and free shipping worldwide. As for advantages of AUX Link, it can be also used as a charger and a Bluetooth hands-free car kit. Moreover you can control the playback using the buttons on the steering wheel or on the car stereo. Highly recommended.

I believe it's absolutely worth it. It's a good substitution for a separate hands-free kit. Thus with this AUX Link you get adapter, charger and a hands-free kit. Three devices in one.

Guys, wanted to share my personal experience. Eventually decided to buy AUX Link. Compared all the prices and it's really much cheaper to purchase it at the official online store AUX Car Kits. It was delivered in just five days. At first I tried to install it on my own, but experiences some troubles extracting the OEM car audio. So finally I had it installed in the nearest auto workshop. It took around 10 minutes. So far totally contempted with the adapter.

Advantages:

- high quality sound
- can be used as a charger
- with Bluetooth dongle can be used as a hands-free kit
- music control with buttons on the steering wheel and buttons on the car head unit (very convenient)
- read all music formats
- compatible with my iOS gadgets, but there is also a 3.5 mm plug for other mobile devices
- delivery is free and fast
- takes very little space and almost invisible
- now I can listen to all my favourite songs without carrying piles of CDs.

Disadvantages:

- a bit expensive as I also ordered additional Bluetooth dongle
- could't easily take out the car stereo so had to go to service center

But taking everything into account, I believe it's a good price-quality ratio. So from my point of view it's worth it.
