will the new Ipod touch hook into my car speakers

My IPhone won't hook into my car speakers because the case doesn't leave enough room for the pin. Will the Itouch without a cover hook into my car stereo system?

    Portable music players do not have the output power (watts) to directly drive car speakers. iPods have USB-2 and headphone outputs, that are compatible with car stereos equipped generic or "iPod compatible" inputs. Car stereos built before 2004 probably do not have external inputs If your stereo does not have an external input, electronics stores offer small radio transmitters that connect to your music player or iPod and transmit your music to the car's FM radio.
