    OK, so I have seen mainly threads with issues on Android phones using the USB on car stereos....

    So Im asking as a iphone user that is now up for upgrade and seriously considering the S2 Skyrocket, but this is a big deal to me, I must be able to hook this up to my car stereo and see the song names and all that, pretty much just like my iphone. I dont use the iphone controls really just a straight usb cable to the stereo and it charges the iphone, and I can change songs and all that with the remote... Is this possible with this or any android phone?

    I will try and test next weekend.

    Android devices do not hook up USB like iPhones do however.

    They hook up to the head unit as an external drive. In a perfect world you get

    File structure
    song display
    Skips play pause etc

    This would be ok Im sure as long as I can see the "list" and change songs, all that basic stuff. Again I dont use iPhone controls, just straight usb to stereo and then can play, change songs, etc
