Hi, I'm Skylar. When it comes to getting your iPhone to play in your car, simplest is best, seriously. I have in my car an Alpine stereo that they developed specifically to work with Pandora. Well as soon as I got an iPhone 5, guess what, it didn't work any more because there was a proprietary protocol for connecting the two together. So what did I do? Well I went back to using the auxiliary jack. That's the simplest thing. The auxiliary jack remember is just a cable that goes out from your headphones and plugs into a similar looking port on your stereo. Most cars have them. If your car doesn't have one, the next best thing is to, if it's got a tape deck, get the Monster iCarPlay tape adapter. I sold a million of these things. They work great. The sound quality is awesome and they last forever. I really really like this product and you can get a similar product at Radio Shack or Best Buy, what have you but I think it's best spending the $20 on the Monster adapter. Finally if your car doesn't have a tape deck and doesn't have an auxiliary port, you really might want to look into buying a simple decent quality head unit and have it installed. Go down to Best Buy, something like that, it will probably total run you about $100 to buy the head unit, have it installed and then you'll have an auxiliary port that makes it really really easy to plug your iPhone into your stereo and that's even if iPhone 6 or 7 or 8 comes out. The headphone jack and auxiliary port aren't going to go away and that's the simplest possible solution. Thanks for watching. I'm Skylar.
