iPhone Holder for Car Uses Cassette Tape Player Deck (and Plays Audio Through it Too)

Now, here is something that is just this side of brilliant. It’s a dock adapter that fits in the cassette tape slot in your car, and holds your iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, and any iPod that has a 30-pin adapter (sorry iPhone 5 and 6 users), and charges it. Of course, it’s not just an iPhone holder, it actually allows you to play your iPhone or iPod audio through your car stereo via the cassette player.

In truth, I found this because I was looking for a better holder for my iPhone when in the car. Somewhere that I could charge it, and it would be hands-free. The car that I have doesn’t easily accommodate those “shove ’em in your vents” holders.


Then I thought “Wouldn’t it be great if someone has come up with something that you could shove into that otherwise unused cassette tape deck, to hold your iPhone?”, and that started the great search.

And, whaddaya know?! Someone had invented something that you could shove into your car cassette player to hold your iPhone or iPod. And not only that, it can play your iPhone or iPod through your cassette player, to your car stereo, and also charge it!

And the good news is that it works a treat, and not just as an iPhone holder, but as a device to route the audio from your iPhone or iPod through your car stereo! (We’re being a bit tongue-in-cheek here – obviously most people will want this because of the audio capabilities, we just happened to find it because we were looking for a cassette player iPhone holder.)

The sound quality, while perhaps not as perfect as that which originates from your stereo, is definitely better than using those cassette tape formfactor adapters with the wire that goes into your speaker jack on your phone. And visually, and logistically, it’s a whole lot neater!

The fact that it also charges your phone at the same time is pure gravy (in fact, you have to have the phone charging – the charger plugs into your lighter – or it won’t work).

Now for that bad news. As we said above, there is only a version for the 30-pin iPhone (i.e. the iPhone 4s and 4, or earlier) and iPods.

 

But if you have an iPhone 4 or 4s, or an iPod Classic, Video, or Nano or Touch (generations 1-6, and one 1-4, respectively) – check it out!

You can check out the iDeck Integrated Car Cassette Adapter for iPhone and iPod on Amazon.

  1. I have a cassette player and would like to have the phone holder using the cassette slot
    where can I find one????

  2. Do you know if there is a “iDeck Integrated Car Cassette Adapter for iPhone” that uses a lightning cord? I really like this idea but can’t find anything like it for my iphone xr. Thanks

  3. I have an Alpine Cassette Player in my 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce. The only problem is that my iPhones are 5s and 6 and the holder in question works only with iPhone 4 and 4s. My question: “is there going to be, in the near future, a version of the holder for newer iPhones? Hope so!”

  4. Great, but now I have to go out and by a piece of equipment I left behind two vehicles ago. I wonder just how many iPhone owners even have a cassette player.
