Red face Car Mode?

Oh, hey! So I've got an HTC Wildfire S with Android version 2.3.5, but there doesn't seem to be an option for car mode on it? If I try to create a shortcut to it, which is the ONLY reference to it on the phone I've seen (it's not in the Applications list), it just gives me an option to launch it once it's put in the car dock.

I'm not planning to buy the HTC car kit for my phone anytime soon. A) My car is older, so there's no Bluetooth or MP3 jack or anything in there, and B) my family has a few iPods we want to be able to play music on as well.

Sooo, is there any way I can get that to activate? Is it even THERE, or do I have to download something to get it first?

Sorry if this is at all confusing! :L

If the car has a standard single DIN stereo, get a new stereo with Bluetooth and MP3 playback from SD/USB. a good starting point is
Bluetooth Car Stereo - Price comparison - Motors - Buy cheap in Canada
They're easy enough to fit, just make sure you have the correct removal tool for the existing stereo, (and for the new one as well.).
