    Hi all...

    I've got an MP3 player with the standard cassette player connection. Trouble is, I just got a new car and it doesn't have a cassette deck in it...I was so excited to get the new car that I didn't even remember that little fact. It's a Mazda 6, and the radio is part of the dash, so no chance of an aftermarket radio going in...

    So...my question is, do any of you know of a way for me to use my MP3 player without the cassette deck? Some sort of converter box or wiring shortcut or something?

    Or...is there a car MP3 player that doesn't need the cassette interface?

    Thanks in advance!

    You need an FM Modulator like this.

    If you want the highest quality audio, you might try finding a PIE adapter that has aux inputs. It will probably run about $100, and may be hard to find since the Mazda 6 is so new. Your factory head unit also has to have CD Changer controls for these adapters to work.
