    Hey everyone,

    I'm going to be purchasing an Droid Incredible as soon as it comes out and I can't wait! But I have a general question regarding radio use from apps like last.fm or pandora (I'm coming from an LG Dare... UGH!).

    Like an FM transmitter, can these smartphones be connected to a car's auxilary input thing and play the music from apps? I was driving home and I noticed every single station was playing either Rihanna or Imma Bee... Getting sick of listening to the same crap all day long.

    Thanks!

    I don't think it has an fm transmitter, just receiver, but you can prob find one to plug into the headphone jack.

    I don't know much about aux input things. I know bluetooth will also work if your car has it.

    Yes. Just hook it up and it'll take the audio from the phone and play it over your car speakers.

    Yup, just get a 3.5 M-M cable. I'm guessing this is an aftermarket radio which might be able to receive music via bluetooth as well.

    Actually, most new cars now have either an aux input (usually in the center console or glove box) or a usb connection with or without aux.

    Also, in the 2011 Ford Fiesta (and newer Ford vehicles), there is a feature where the car syncs with the apps on your phone, including Pandora and Twitter.

    Yeah, my car has an aux in plug. So, I would just have to find a cable that is USB/Aux I'm assuming?

    Nope. The droid has a 3.5 mm jack (normal headphone jack) that should match the one on your radio. You just need a male-male cord.
