    Hi All,
    Sorry if this has been asked before, but a quick search didn't throw anything up.
    I'm having problems with streaming music to my car stereo. Everything connects ok but playback is very jumpy. I get a 1 or 2 second pause every 10 seconds or so.
    I know it's not my car stereo as my iPhone streams to it seemlessly for hours on end.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Aaron.

    A review I read highlighted this problem, but I've been using mine for >10 hours and haven't heard any snap, crackles or pops. Or jumps for that matter :)

    Do you think that given my iphone works perfectly, i should take back my desire and claim its faulty? I guess its not a problem with all desire's...

    My stereo is a Sony MEX-2500BT.

    There is nothing USB connected.

    It just seems odd how my iPhone works fine :/

    I think I will try and find someone with a different head unit so see if it makes a difference. If I have to, I'll buy a new head unit. That's gonna be a last resort though!

    I have an HTC Desire and a Sony MEX-2500BT too, and I have the same problem with pauses/dropouts of the audio. I get them whether I use the built-in music app or Spotify.

    I had no problems streaming music from my Nokia N95 to the same car stereo. I'd be interested in hearing whether you get it working, and whether the desire works better with other head units (hopefully it won't come to that for you - if I can't get the desire working I'll probably carry on using the N95).

    Edit: I've just read http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=3038#c20 and it looks like turning off wifi on the desire might help with this problem. I'll give that a try next time I'm in my car.

    I have no problems streaming to my Venturi Mini in the car. The only sound drop outs I get is when I'm listening to internet radio, but I know that's a signal issue.

    For me it was defo the Wifi that was causing the problems. I had the same play for 10-20 secs then 2sec drop outs, i then went searching and heard turning off Wifi would sort the problem and sure enough the very first time i tried it there were no jumps or drop outs in connection. It has worked fine ever since with the Wifi off ;)

    I had the same problem and had to turn the internet off aswell as the wifi. I found that everytime the net updated, my blutooth headphones would cut out.
    The headphones work a treat now but I'm a bit miffed I have no internet while i listen to my music

    Hi,
    I had the same problem with my Bluetooth car stereo, I switched the WiFi off as when you drive round the WiFi is searching for a signal and this affects the bt connection. I switched the WiFi off and it is fine now, I also use the default music app as when I had another music app both of them started playing music. The only issue I have now is that for some reason the music volume seems to go to zero percent, but I think that maybe something to do with the volume toggle widgets that I have.

    I also have a Sony Bluetooth car stereo and my previous phone Nokia n95 worked flawlessly. Does anyone know if the froyo update has made any improvements to the Bluetooth?

    Strange - must be the combo of Sony and Desire - I connect to internet radio via Wifi, stream A2DP to a Jabra dongle and connect that to my stereo - whilst running Navigon Satnav! No probs, skips or drop outs. :confused:
