    Hi,

    Ive purchase a tomtom car kit and would like to be able to play everything through my car radio. However my problem is that my car has a USB socket for iPhone and no line in for a 3.5mm jack.

    Does anyone know how to get the tomtom car kit plugged into a USB socket to play music etc. I tried using a miniusb plugged into the car kit and plugged usb end into car but no joy with that.

    Help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Regards
    J Spring

    No easy way. The 3.5mm line out on the Tomtom is analogue audio, but ANY USB socket is digital data only (not even digital audio either) .

    But you might find a Parrot or iO-Play system that will do what you want.

    iO-Play for the win.

    A cheap and easy way would be a radio transmitter.
