    After I installed my music on the Captivate and plugged the video cable into the factory screen of my car (Pontiac G8). I wanted to see how everything including nav on the screen and it looked pretty dam good. I fired up the music player and put it in the background and fired up Google Nav. I entered a destination and every time it spoke a direction, the music paused then started playing after the directions. I was wondering about this from day one and I found out and Im happy about it.

    Great post! I JUST finished doing this in my Dakota R/T with an aftermarket in-dash flip up. I now have DVD, broadcast radio, iPod, Bluetooth and the ability to do as you said: have music in the backround, while using navigation. I had Sirius but who needs it with Pandora; and I actually found the sound quality better. I just wish the resolution was better, but hey it is what it is.

    I also used a vehicle specific Panavise mount, and a Bracketron swivel holder and mount. Makes it easy to go from portrait to landscape with the flick of your wrist.

    Couldn't do it with the 3Gs!

    Also does this if you have headphones connected while using the Google Maps GPS navigate plus text to speech, while listening to music, it'll pause the song to say the driving directions. Pretty handy!

    Well, satellite reception coverage is quite more-extensive than cellular coverage. I'd hate to lose radio any time I lost cell reception while driving. I wouldn't have music more than 50% of the time.

    To be quite honest, when and where I drive, Sirius would cut out where Pandora doesn't. Under freeway overpasses and tree lined roads would be good examples. I can't justify almost $15 a month for Sirius when it has been my experience that Pandora actually has better sound quality.

    Even in areas of Edge coverage only, Pandora still worked. I guess if I was in a situation where I didn't have coverage, there is always 30 gigs of music to listen to. :D
