So you already know you can hook up your phone via the headphone jack with a cassette adapter. Only other way would be to pull the head unit and see if there is an AUX plug in the back. Is there a button on the front for such a thing? If not your probably out of luck on the OEM head unit. You can always replace it with a new head unit that will play music from your phone or other music player, they are not that expensive anymore. Check out this site.......www.crutchfield.com

I own a 2001 Jetta GLX VR6 and I can say from experience that a cassette adapter will be your best option. The FM transmitters don't provide good sound quality. And Volkswagens are known for "rejecting" aftermarket head units. Your interior lights and alarm will most likely stop functioning correctly. Overall, electrical gremlins will pop up left right and center. So just stick with a cassette adapter. I use this one and it's great because it has an elbow near the jack so the wire doesn't break, and it has a built in mic so you can use handsfree calling without the need for speakerphone to be on. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/griffin-technology-directdeck- cassette-adapter/1913019.p?id=1219067158898

And set your iPhone volume setting to 80-90%, then use the stereo volume to adjust as normal.

Get a stereo shop to install a female USB port somewhere in your dash or glove box & connected up to your system.
