John asks…

What is the best way to play music in your car from an iPhone?

Does anyone use the iTrip with the iPhone or know names of products that make it easy? The cd player in my car isnt mp3 ready so im wondering what would be the best way. Should i wire it all up to play them or should i get the iTrip FM Transmitter. thanks!

Justin answers:

If you have an aftermarket cd player, you can probaby purchase one of two options to solve your problem. The first is merely a cable that connects to the rear of the cd player and to the headphone jack on the iPhone/iPod. This allows you to change songs as you normally would by using the iPhone. The second option(which I personally use and recommend) is a bit more expensive. It is the same as the first except there is a small computer processor involved. My cd player has one built into it, while the previous cd player I had did not. I had to buy a “small box” that had a cable running from it to the cd player and another to the iPod. This connects to the iPod at the serial port onthe bottom and allows you to control the Ipod from the face plate of the cd player, and charge the iPod simultaneously.

If you have an older aftermarket cd player, the first option is probably the only one for you. You may want to purchase a car charger for the Iphone if you go this route.

The iTrip is absolute crap. It is merely a radio transmitter which doesn’t work if you live in an area that has a high number of radio station. (I.E. Indianapolis of all places) By running a cable from the back of the cd player to the Ipod, the sound quality will be exactly what you are used to hearing through the headphones, not a downgraded radio version of your music.

How much do you pay monthly for an Iphone 3g?

How much do you pay a month? I wouldn’t plan on getting Internet with it, so would the price per month be lowered? I would like to go with Telus as well.

And also.. What is voice control and voice memo on the Iphone? I’d like to get the 8GB, and the 16GB looks very tempting but expensive too.

Is there anything else I should be aware of before purchasing it? Pros and cons?

Justin answers:

The $30 monthly iPhone data plan is a requirement, there is absolutely no way around it. Voice control basically allows you to speak the words “Call Bob” and the phone will place the phone call without you having to dial the number. You can also say the name of a song and it will play without you having to access your music files. Voice memo is a microphone that records audio.

How do I transfer movies and videos from my iphone to my imac for free? What do I need to download?

I don’t want to have to pay for anything, so please if there is a free way please tell me.

Justin answers:

Below is a link to an iLounge article. ILounge is a great guide for all things iPod. If you go to the iPod 101/201 section, there are a number of tutorials on how to do many different things with your iPod and iPhone.

The article below talks about three different ways of getting content off of your iPod/iPhone:

-Paying for a program. This may not be what you want to do, but the programs you pay for generally give you the best return. You can get all of the information about the content you transfer (song play counts, ratings, etc.) with some of the programs you pay for, plus be able to recover additional content. Again, it may not be the way you want to go, but it’s the easiest and best way to get content off of your iPhone.

-Get a free program. Some of these programs are only designed to get content off of iPods, and may not be able to recover videos. But, they’re worth checking out before you pay for something. You’ll also probably lose the additional information (play counts, etc.) if you use a free program.

-Do it manually. I never recommend doing this, because you stand potential to damage the database that your iPhone uses to access the song information, and may not even work with iPhones. The database was also not designed to be read by real people, so you will have to dig to find your content.

I’d recommend paying for a program, as it gives you the most flexibility and the best chance of recovering your content. I use CopyTrans on my desktop, and it lets me back up all of my content from my iPhone, which is great for any number of different circumstances.

By the way, if you’ve purchased the videos, you can just click on your iPhone and click on “Transfer Purchased Content”. As long as your computer is registered under your name, you can play any movies you download off of your iPhone.

Hope this helps!

Steven asks…

How do I fix my car stereo problem?

I purchased a new car stereo and it’s installed properly. I wanted to plug in my iphone so it can charge and play simultaneously, instead it charges and plays one song and has a white screen saying “Accessory connected”. I can’t switch from that screen. I’m using a regular USB cable and I want to be able to scroll down my music playlist. How do I fix this? Is there a setting or something somewhere?

Justin answers:

Is your ipod jailbroken? If it is, this will occur. So what you should do is make a playlist, and if you don’t want to do that, all you gotta do, is unplug you ipod, pick the song, and re plug it.
