iPod tape converter

Would someone explain to me how an iPod tape player converter works? The sort of thing you put into your car's tape slot and connect to the iPod to listen to music with your car? I've been wondering how the hell it works and I can't come up with anything that makes sense.

    This is a complete guess, but cassette tapes store the sound in magnetic tape, right? And scroll the tape between the two turny-bits at a certain rate to be read by the tape player. If you look at a tape adapter it's got a metal bit in the middle of the bottom side where the exposed tape would normally be - I always figured it was some sort of magnet that approximated the signals the magnetic tape would give in a normal tape.
