    Well, I want to connect me Incredible to me stereo, and well, I only have a normal radio without an AUX input or anything of the sort. The only way I could actually do it is via FM transmitter..... so my question is, what is the best set up for this? I want to charge the phone as well as transmit music from it.

    I have an iPod Touch and have had the same FM transmitter that supplied power to it as well as transmitted amazingly for the past 2 years. I basically want this phone to replace my iPod Touch.

    Any suggestions are great!

    I know it's only an 8 hour bump, but I would really like some advice on this, and I don't want this thread to be left behind!

    Personally once i get my phone, I will just buy a big 120gb zune, and plug it into my car with that.
    The hassle of doing it with the phone while i also text is quite annoying, and i enjoy being able to fit that much music on my car's stereo.

    I have the same setup on my car, no AUX input. I bought a monster cable from Amazon that seems to work well. It will not charge the phone but that's what my car charger is for, if you do some searching I'm sure you can find one that charges and plays over FM. The only issue I have with all FM transmitters is that your mileage may vary, I don't have much of an issue but certain ones won't work in certain locations. Check out reviews and pick one that has a decent amount of positives keeping mind there's not guarantee it will work perfectly (static free). This is the one I have Amazon.com: Monster RadioPlay 300 Universal Full Spectrum FM Transmitter (MBL-FM XMTR300): Electronics

    Edit. Search the forums there was one I remember when I was looking for a transmitter that charge, I think it was from Belkin or Griffin. I didn't get it because it was $50+ and I knew I had a car charger.

    I use the Jabra Cruiser via FM and the sound quality is pretty good. In addition, you can also answer and initial calls through the same unit.

    There is one FM Transmitter that can be hacked to turn up the transmission power to above the FCC part 15 regulations so it comes through crystal clear, but it's always back ordered. I have a iriver AFT 100 FM transmitter and it works pretty well even in urban areas. It was about $17 shipped on Amazon.com, it doesn't charge the phone though.

    I'm trying to do this too with my Desire in GB - doesn't the phone have an fm transmitter built in? if so, can't that be used to hook up to the car radio?

    I'm pretty sure it's just a radio, but I don't know if there is an FM transmitter in there that is disabled. I don't know how the Snapdragon CPU is built.
