    I'd like to experiment with streaming audio from my G1 into my car somehow.

    I have a radio/tape/cd deck.

    I was looking at these bluetooth FM transmitting items on eBay but I get bad vibes from them generally:

    NEW CAR MP3+ FM AUDIO+BLUETOOTH+USB DRIVER/SD MMC SLOT - eBay (item 250502067375 end time Oct-21-09 00:22:50 PDT)
    3in1 Car MP3 FM Transmitter/Bluetooth Audio/Handsfree - eBay (item 370210562860 end time Oct-31-09 01:50:01 PDT)
    2.4G BLUETOOTH FM MODULATOR CAR MP3 PLAYER +AUDIO CABLE - eBay (item 320429274107 end time Oct-27-09 22:53:01 PDT)

    I don't want to make calls or anything, I just wanna listen to music without installing a new deck or anything.

    Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated.

    I use one of those tape adaptors which i think works well in my car (considering its a bodge). You really need to think along the lines of a 3.5mm jack unless you want to rip out your stereo and put a Bluetooth head unit in your car. However Bluetooth can be problematic with android and some people have problems with this method. Oh and as you have a G1 you might need a headphone adaptor.

    This is what I use. Awesome. Amazon has a good price on it but I got it here in Can'tada from FutureShop. Brian

    You can get cheap stereos with 3.5mm input jacks on the front, I have one, cost me
