I just bought a new car without a cassette tape deck. There uis a connection for a jack for an MP3 player. The car is leased, so I don't don't want to add or build any addition to the car. Is there any way I can hook up my XM Roady to this jack? And where would i get he jack?

Re: connecting via a cable to my car radio
The best way to hook up this radio to your car is wireless! This radio has a built-in FM transmitter. All you have to do is go into the menu on the radio and find FM settings. Figure out or set the radio station, and then tune into it on your car.

for music on your car. Buy an adapter is the easiest and cheapest way to
connect your iPod to your car stereo system. Do you know which adapter fits you
best and know how to use the first steps to expand their musical possibilities.
<p>Tape deck <br />
<p>1. Buy an iPod adapter cassette player, if your car has a
cassette player. This is one of the easiest and cheapest way to get your iPod
to play music from a car radio. A cassette adapter is shaped like a tape with a
wire connected to an end. <br />

good standing. This adapter is relatively easy to find and can usually be
purchased for less than $ 20. <br />
<p>3. Slide the cassette tape in the car. Take the end of the
cable and connect the headset to your iPod. Select a song to your iPod and
press the "Play". Be sure to order the car stereo's cassette player. <br />
<p>FM Transmitter <br />
<p>1. Purchase an FM transmission adapter if your car has a
cassette player. This type of adapter connects to both your iPod headphone jack
or car cigarette lighter and stream music via FM radio signal. <br />
<p>2. In an FM adapter to send any electronics store. This
adapter is a little more expensive than a cassette adapter. Make sure you have
an FM transmitter instead, for many FM stations broadcast from a transmitter
can only be transmitted to a unit to buy. This gives you more options when
you're in certain areas where FM stations are vague or nonexistent. <br />
<p>3. Connect the FM transmitter for the iPod to a lighter
(depending on model purchased). Turn on your car's FM radio and find a channel
that is unoccupied. Adjust the transmitter to the channel number exactly the
same and then to match the iPod. For example, 99.1 FM if you find a free
channel in your area, the FM transmitter on 99.1 reading. Connect the iPod and
press "Play." <br />
<p>Extra- <br />

input panel. This type of iPod adapter is one of the easiest ways for your iPod
to play music in the car. <br />

Does your car player have a auxillary jack (looks like headphone hole)
or does it just have a tape player?
if it has an auxilary plug then you need to plug the cable from your ipod into that and set the stereo to aux for source.
if the car has a tape player go to the store and ask for the cassette that plugs into your headphone jack. then you can put that tape into the tapeplayer and plug the other end in your headphone port on the ipod and listen away
your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary
well it has a regular 3.5 mm jack. you can get a universal fm radio transmitter that plugs right into it, tune your radio, and listen in. I on the other hand, have a car with a tape deck, and just used the tape adapter from an old cd player i had, that plugged right into the headphone 3.5 mm output.
I'm not sure why you are unable to see the usb device, but I am
surprised you are using a speaker level output to connect to it and not
a line level, which is a much smaller signal. I've never heard of an
RCA to USB adapter, but I like the idea if it works. I normaly
just go into the line input jack on the back when using a desktop
computer. Does your laptop have a line input jack? Good
Solution #1 - If your car deck is a tape deck, you can purchase a cassette conversion kit to accomplish this. The cassette converter is a mock-cassette that has a wire and headphone plug on the end. Put in the "cassette", plug the headphone jack into your Insignia Pilot, and play your music from the Pilot.
Solution #2 - There are also FM transmitter packages that will plug into your Insignia Pilot and transmit over an FM frequency. You'll need to turn on and tune the cars radio to the frequency the transmitter is sending to be able to hear the music from your pilot.
Solution #3 - If you are looking for a direct connect through the AUX 1 input (if your car radio supports this) you would need a small amplifier to boost the signal from your Pilot. Otherwise youll either get nothing as far as volume, ot it'll be really weak and you'll have to increase your volume to such a high level that there will also be a lot of noise. This solution would require a small amp (probably available from Best Buy or Radio Shack) left/right stereo RCA cable (from amplifier to car deck), left/right stereo RCA to stereo headphone, and a power cable to your cigarette lighter.
**if you have an after-market car stereo, you can most likely connect with this solution. If your car stereo is stock, then most likely you will not have an Aux 1 input on the back of the unit and will need to resort to solution #1 or #2.
