Default What do I need to buy to play music from my phone in my Toyota Yaris?

I have a 2005 Toyota Yaris and want to play music through my phone instead of listening to the radio. Do i need to buy a whole new radio (i've seen some on ebay for over 100?!) or is there a lead I can buy? Also, if i do need to buy a new radio, is there any that are reasonably decent but cheap?

If the radio has an AUX (auxiliary) input then a cable with plugs matching it and the phone should work.

Hey, there is a small 10-dollar accessory called an FM transmitter that connects to the bottom of the phone and will transmit the audio playing on the phone via FM waves to the radio of the car. This way virtually any old car radio can be made compatible with any smart phone. I got the one pictured below, it also charges the phone and the sound quality is ok. If you search eBay or local equivalent for e.g. iPhone (insert your own phone brand) FM transmitter you should get plenty of results.

Hope this helps.

Hi you have had the two best suggestions so far. however a direct connection my be the need for a new radio.

how ever toyota audio systems tend to be different from anything else as it is all integrated into the car so consult with a toyota dealer before ripping out a radio in the car.
