Default Adapter for Cars to Connect to Mobile Gadgets

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 purchasing it I'd like to get some more information...Is someone using it? What's your opinion? Any other solutions?

I bought AUX Link car adapter almost one year ago. Totally satisfied. Perfect 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 specialized workshop you can have it done in no time). I was purchasing here AUX Car Kits. It's official store so they have lowest prices (at least when I was buying it) and free delivery free worldwide delivery. As for advantages of AUX Link, it can be also used as a charger and a hands-free car kit. Moreover you can control the playback using the buttons on the steering wheel or on the car stereo. Highly recommended.

Thanks! I checked it out. Positive reviews. Did you purchase it together with Bluetooth dongle?To use AUX Link as a hand-free kit...Is it worth it?

From my point of view it's totally worth it. It's a great substitution for a separate car hands-free kit. In other words with this AUX Link you get adapter, charger and a hands-free kit. Three devices in one.

Guys, just wanted to share my personal experience. Eventually made up my mind to buy car adapter AUX Link. Compared all the prices and it's really much cheaper to buy it at the official website AUX Car Kits. The delivery took just five days. At first I decided to try to install it myself, but experiences some troubles taking out the OEM car audio. So in the end I had it installed in the nearest auto workshop. It took around 15 minutes. So far totally contented with the purchase.

Advantages:

- great sound
- can be used as a charger
- with Bluetooth dongle can be used as a car hands-free kit
- music control with buttons on the steering wheel and buttons on the car stereo (very convenient)
- suitable for all music formats
- compatible with my iOS devices, but there is also a 3.5 mm plug for other mobile devices
- delivery is free and fast
- takes very little space and doesn't spoil the interior
- now I can listen to all my favourite songs without carrying piles of CDs.

Disadvantages:

- relatively expensive as I also bought additional Bluetooth dongle
- could't easily extract the head unit so had to go to auto workshop

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

I definitely recommend AUX Link and so far this is the best AUX/USB/iPod adapter I've found. I've already had one for my Volkswagen Jetta 2003 for almost a year and now I've ordered the same adapter for my wife's Beetle 2003 as a Christmas present.

But the company AUX Car Kits that sells AUX Link always fails to deliver on time! They promise 3-7 days, but finally you receive the adapter in 10 or even more... So if you buy it as a present for someone, keep in mind adding around 15 days to get it for sure....
