    Is it possible to broadcast to an FM radio? I'm assuming not since I haven't seen it but you just never know what some folks turn up.

    I was listening to the Steelers game on a Pittsburgh station while driving thru Arkansas on Tune In Radio while driving and the volume wasn't loud enough to hear comfortably and I really dislike ear buds....especially when driving(dangerous).

    Would be nice to broadcast to FM in car and listen that way.

  2. Not as far as I've seen. If you have a head unit with an RCA in on the back and an 'ext. in' setting you can do like I do and plug your DX, or any other device into the headphone jack and listen to whatever you have playing on it that way.

    All you need is a stereo RCA cord to bridge between the two.

    You need an FM transmitter, which are plentiful. You just plug the headphone jack into the FM transmitter, select a frequency, tune your radio to that frequency and away you go.

    Amazon.com: fm transmitter

    The quality isn't the best, and if you drive through densely populated areas sometimes you'll have to switch stations to find an unused one, but it works. I used one before I had a radio with an aux-in (and now I just use Bluetooth to stream).

    I echo Outlaw's method, if available. My stereo has a built in AUX port and I just use a male to male 3.5mm cable to go from the X's headset plug to the car and I hear everything on my car's stereo.
     
  5. Yeah I usually listen to my Sandisk through my head unit. But I had my DX hooked up to it one time and I was at a gas station. Then a call came in (phone was on vibrate) and I answered, and suddenly my conversation was being blasted out of car speakers for everyone else to hear...

    I wasn't expecting that for some reason? lol

    No jacks. 2000 model vehicle. Will see if the FM transmitter works. Hate to have to have something hook up......these things always get lost.
    My daughter's phone has a built in FM transmitter and it is unbelievably clear!

    HAHA! I was listening to Pandora thru my AUX plug and a call came in on my BT Headset, then it died. Suddenly, the call was blasting on my radio! But they couldn't hear me talking back!
