My car doesn’t have an auxiliary port or any Bluetooth network to connect music from my phone to the car. I searched the car dashboard and yep there’s nothing. My car does have a CD player and radio.

What can I buy that will send my phone’s music to the car speakers? The car is pretty old with a high mileage so I’d rather not install anything new & costly at this point.

Yeah you're going to need a FM transmitter that plugs into the cigarette lighter or power socket. !shocked

This lets you charge your phone while you play music

Oh dear, I have the same problem. I’ve resorted to CDs for car trips, I can’t find a better way around it!

FM transmitter is your only option.

Does your car have a cassette player? It's easier to transmit music to a car with a cassette player than it is by using the radio with an FM transmitter.

You place a dummy cassette into the system with the attached auxiliary plugged into your phone. If, however, you have a new phone without a 3.5mm headphone jack, you'll require an adaptor.

I've used car cassette adapters before like this one:

Insignia - 3' 3.5mm Cassette Adapter - Multi

They work brilliantly.

Huge thanks everyone. I've come to the conclusion that my vehicle is too old. CDs are my only real option.
