iPod Shuffle Car Stereo Attempt
I'm sure you are familiar with the concept of a How-To, well this is a How-Not-To documenting my attempt to connect my iPod Shuffle to my car stereo. I thought that I could simply purchase a mini y adapter (headphones to RCA red/white) and use that to connect the two devices. Turns out that in addition to connecting the audio interface (red/white RCA) the external device needs a source controller. You need to also plug this source controller cabe into the car stereo so that the stereo recognizes the device. This is probably self-evident to most of you but my best friend Daren said it would work and he is pretty saavy with stereo electronics.
