    I am curious if it would be possible to write an application that used the built in fm radio antenna to transmit music to my car's radio, just like what an itrip does for the Ipod but in this case It Is built In

    No...there is no FM transmitter, just a receiver.

    You're better off buying a wired FM modulator.

    Besides, there's no built in antenna. It uses any connected headphones as the antenna. Just because something can receive RF signals is a strong difference from it being able to transmit (takes a lot more power that the circuitry is not designed to handle nor is it capable of heterodyning).
