    Hi,

    I want to be able to plug my phone into the car charger and still be able to play tunes through the 3.5mm audio jack. The problem is that the charger plugs in where the attachment for the audio jack plugs in. Does anyone know of a splitter that is made. I found splitters for normal sized USB but not for mini's? Any help appreciated.

    can you not use the data cable/charger cord.that come with the phone and split it.

    This is my setup right now. Works great. Also I can use TuneWiki (shoutcast) / Pandora and play it on my stereo via FM transmitter thats built into my bluetooth. Only down side, 1 plug, 2 wires :-\ But keeps everything charged so..

    ---But I noticed you want to use just the 3.5. The mini-usb works on the mytouch. Not sure how it'll work splitting it, but the normal mini usb cable does work with this phone.

    I also found this little gizmo, which I've just bought on ebay...it's an fm transmitter which plugs into the USB module of your phone. It plays your music as any fm transmitter would, but also has a small mic at the bottom...

    Whenever a call comes in, it stops your music and allows you to go hands free, with the sound of the call coming through the speakers:

    FM Transmitter for HTC Hero Magic T-Mobile MyTouch 3G on eBay (end time 27-Sep-09 22:11:18 BST)

    I've yet to receive it, but will let you know how good it is when I get it.

    That sounds very cool (I have an FM transmitter, but not with the mic for taking calls). Let us know how it works, as I'd be concerned about feedback when the volume is turned up loud.

    Hi. Try this. They have them on Amazon for a good price. I have it and it works well. I use a Bluetooth headset for the phone and sometimes the phone tries to pair with the headset and the LiquidAux but otherwise it is an excellent product.
