    I'm a truck driver, and I'm in a different truck every day and they don't have radio's in them.
    What are my options for music and radio?

    Something similar to this MOTOROKR™ EQ7 Wireless HI−FI Speaker System

    (not sure that would be loud enough in a noisy truck)

    I plan on getting At Bat 2010 to listen to baseball games and iheartradio to listen to music and talk radio.

    What is the best way to hook my android phone up to some kind of speaker system?
    Would just any kind of radio (boombox type) with a aux plug be sufficient?

    Thanks for any suggestion.

    I use DroidLive Lite to listen to ESPN radio for nationally broadcast shows like Mike and Mike in the Morning. It only has a few local ESPN radio stations to listen to, but it works well for me on the way to work in the morning.

    A boombox with an aux plug would work. Another option might be to get a tape converter if your trucks have tape players.

    Yeah they dont have any radio in them at all, so I would have to get a boom box if that would work.

    I use my Eris in a convertible with the top down - an older noisy convertible at that. I send the output via headphone cable to the aux input on the car stereo. Since it's not much of a stereo I'd have to say that a decent boom box would put out more/better sound than my stereo. Having spent my share of years driving a dump truck, I'd have to say that the Eris and a decent boom box is a sound (sorry, couldn't help it) idea.

    A good boombox or even a nice set of computer speakers and an AC/DC power converter would work well.
