    You can use an FM transmitter, which plugs into the 3.5mm jack on top of our phones. Belkin offers a nice solution which is an FM transmitter with a USB port to allow charging at the same time.

    I expect you're looking at getting one of those devices that plugs into the headset jack and broadcasts a radio signal. You then tune your car radiio to the proper 'station' in order to hear the music.

    In my Acura there is a tape player below the cd changer for some reason so I use a tape transmitter. It's a cassette tape with a wire leading to a 3.5mm headphone plug. I plug it in and pop the tape in the deck and voila! I tried every FM transmitter under the sun and had poor results with all. I saw this at Target and decided to give this a shot and I'm very glad I did. I've had it for 2 years and it still works the same as day 1.

    I love mine too. Just wish it could use the microphone, I hate not being able to take calls because it's just a cassette player.

    That's one perk I totally enjoy about having an Aux input on my head unit. The music stops when I get a call, and all I have to do is tap answer and my car is instantly one giant speaker phone. lol

    I use a Motorola unit with built in BT and FM transmitter. All I got to do is get in car and turn it on. Good to go. It also has built in speaker and mic to usefor calls if Ian not transmitting about 120 bones but I have had it for about 2 years. Worksgreat and highly portable

    I just picked up the T505 last week at my local Verizon store. It was on sale and with my corporate discount was only $39!

    does your car need bluetooth for this to work? or can you just use the DINC and car stereo?

    Nope, this is made specifically for cars that don't have bluetooth. Just pair it with your phone and you're good to go. Keep in mind that it plays through your stereo via FM transmitter, so if you've never used one before you might be a little disappointed.

    indeed, I've used FM transmitters before but nothing of that nature...I'm contemplating purchasing one.

    If you want to be able to charge your phone while you're using it and not have to have a separate charger and transmitter, I would get the Gogroove. It would be cheaper than buying them separately also.

    Amazon.com: Griffin iTrip Auto Universal Plus FM Transmitter for Portable MP3 Players (2010 Packaging): Electronics

    I'm looking at getting one of these. At this point, I still use my iPod Touch because I have an FM transmitter that goes to an iPod connector from before i got my phone. I think that ones starting to wear out though, the station i usually use is pretty open, and recently its not been perfectly clear like it was when i bought it. Same with other stations. Maybe they go bad after so many hours of playing music.
