    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Yep, as far as current Vx equipment goes, there are no units which have a proper Ipod input...nor do they have SD card and USB sockets either!!

    There are some post 2007 radios that have an Aux-In socket (3.5mm stereo jack socket), but they have not been fitted to ALL cars, which seems quite daft, as a lot of other marques now have Ipod conectivity, SD and USB.

    It is a bit like very few, but not many Vectra-C's were fitted with CC20's...I mean, how many people look for a CASSETTE radio these days. and we are talking full can, so 2004 / 2005 period.

    How many people have any cassettes these days, I certainly don't & haven't for many years - I came across an old Beatles Blue album cassette the other day & it went straight in the bin as I have everything on either CD or iPod & no way of playing cassettes

    Exactly!! Thank god for CD's, no more cleaning magnetic pickups of brown gunge, and no more azimuth adjustments (tape head alignment).
    Oh and no more tapes snapping and getting tangled up,

    but returning to topic...
    What you will need is one of those FM modulaters that are physically wired in-line to you coaxial wiring...not the transmitter type as these are nowhere near as good.

    You can if you use an fm modulator as above - they come in 2 flavours, wired or wireless. With the wired one you'll need to remove the radio to fit an adaptor into the aerial connector then tune your radio into the appropriate frequency - the wireless one is a small transmitter & again just tune your radio into it - the wired one will give you much better result
