    I have an older car and radio has no audio jack, usb or the like.
    Can anyone recommend a good product to allow my HTC Desire to use the music app to play music on the radio at an acceptable standard. That is to say at a quality equal to the AM radio reception I currently experience.
    I hear many bagging the FM transmitters. Are there any good ones that you can recommend?

    In cars that have and audio jack on the radio but no bluetooth can I just use a cable to connect the phone and play music.

    I do not want any other capability but to play music.

    I just bought a Motorola T505 for a good price on Ebay. I think the sound quality is easily as good as an AM station, and a good bit better in my opinion.

    I'm struggling with a question that uses "AM" and "quality" in the same sentence...!

    Damn that looks quite handy. Might have to get me one of them at the weekend!

    I use a Belkin one that I used with my N96, it uses the lighter to charge but has a headphone jack to the phone. Works well but seeing that one above has made me want that now :D

    It surprises me more phone manufacturers don't build this functionality in.

    One of the reasons I previously used and now miss, my N78.

    That's interesting, until 6 weeks ago I was using an N79 and also really miss the built in FM transmitter, and the phone generally to be honest. I find the speaker on the desire to be very poor.

    Yeh, one thing about the N series I found was sound quality and photos were very good.
