mp3 players come with a usb cable. You can also buy cables for mp3 players from other vendors. They do differ from player to player.
I have a car stereo that my iPod plugs into. It uses an iPod usb cable. I can control the pod from the face of the radio. I can see the song list from the iPod on the face of the car radio. The iPod stays tucked away in the glove box.
My phone also connects to the car stereo via bluetooth.
I love it!
