Easiest it just to get a radio transmitter type device. Several are available (from Monster, Belkin, Griffin etc.). Just plug it into the cigarette lighter and the iphone dock connecter (or headphone jack) and set the broadcast frequency to an unused one on your radio dial.

Over the years I've tried a few of those, and would always come across areas where there was some sort of interference that would create static or fuzz. Didn't seem to matter what frequency I was on, I could never drive for more than five or ten minutes before hitting more fuzz. It usually wouldn't last long, but anything at all was more than I care for. The other options seem to be a car deck that has either an auxiliary input or supports Bluetooth A2DP, or a cassette adapter.

If there's no aux input, then the radio transmitter type devices are the best bet for a "no screwdriver" type install. I thought the monster one worked well when I had it (but the model I used was many years ago before iPhone). As a previous post stated, as you travel across areas, you'll find areas of interference. I'm not saying it's the cleanest and clearest solution, but it involves no real installation process. If your stereo deck has an aux input, then obviously go that route. I assumed that since you were asking, it didn't have one. I don't have a "best" one to recommend. Maybe check out amazon and google ratings before deciding on one.

I've used both radio transmitter and cassette adapter, and was MUCH happier w/ the cassette adapter. If you don't have an aux-in on your stereo, and want a cheap solution, this is the way to go. If you don't mind spending a little more, I've heard good things about the Jabra bluetooth.
