    Does anyone know if the car charger just charges the phone. I'm trying to figure out if I would be able to play my mp3's through my Inspire through the car charger. Now that I have Gtunes it would be nice if I could listen to my music like I would with connecting my Itouch. Would I need a different accessory?

    if you are plugging the charger into the cigarette lighter, absolutely not.

    I was thinking that, guess I have to wait and see if that sort of accessory comes out for the phone. Thanks for the reply.

    Does your radio support AUX inputs or USB inputs. You could charge it while simultaneously playing music through either of those methods...

    USB will charge on its own, no need for the car charger. AUX would require a car charger if you want to juice it up.

    I used to have a charger/FM Modulator for my iPhone (like this one) that worked well. It's another option, if you can find one that'll work with the Inspire.

    I would definitely have to go with something like this. Even though I would rather have my phone plugged in and out of sight in my middle compartment a car mount would make things alot more convenient, music and phone call wise also gps.
