Let's say I choose to buy a new or refurbed current-generation iPod or iPad.

One of the vehicles I would use this device in would be a 2001 Chevrolet Astro LS minivan. It's a nice old all-wheel-drive van, bought used from a federal agency several years ago.

The stereo in it is what you might expect: AM/FM with a CD player. There's also an "AUX" button and extra cigarette-lighter ports, but no visible way to connect an iPod. (This is obviously pre-iPod technology). If I choose to plug a new iPod into one of the ciggie ports for power, how can I connect the iPod to the stereo?

You'll probably need an FM transmitter to connect to the 3.5mm audio jack. Assuming there are no FM transmitters designed for the lightning cable with pass through for power.

So something like this with a lightning cable to USB adapter.
