    Default tape adapter for 3Gs?

    I would appreciate hearing from anyone else who is also driving a car with an actual tape deck (cut out slot in stereo in which small rectagular contraptions ['tapes'] were inserted to somehow play music using flimsy strings of plastic connected to rotating internal wheels) in it. Specifically, what device to you use to get your 3gs to play itunes through it? I recently purchased a monster icarplay tape adapter and it failed miserably. The tape adapter I used for my old ipod worked fine. Thanks.

    More than likely it's the adaptor itself, not the combination with the phone. Many of today's car stereos have tension sensors that will stop the cassette motors if enough head tension isn't present. It's intended to stop those old horrific instances of a misfeed running 100's of feet of that flimsy string of plastic into the internal workings of your dash... LOL. Some of the adaptors out there just don't apply the necessary pressure to operate properly.

    I buy cheap $10-20, one was a no name and worked great for a few years and then go a Sony brand and it works the same so far.
