    OK, so this isn't an EVO specific accessory...but holy hell, the Motorola T505 is one bad ass mamma-jamma.

    Essentially, it uses Bluetooth and an FM transmitter to play tunes from your EVO through your car. In a major metropolitan area this thing worked great...streaming Pandora was awesome. You can also take calls with it. For ~$60 after shipping, this is awesome.

    No wires needed - just pair and go.
    Use in any car.
    Use with any Bluetooth device (other phones, etc...)
    Stream all your music in your car.

    The down side is that it'll drain your EVO battery (get a car charger, you putz) and that it's not hard-wired into the car stereo...well, no shit. But it's also quicker, cheaper, and easier. The sound quality was awesome.

    I see this has been around a while, but my brother told me about it and I ordered it last week. If you're looking for a way to play Pandora/MP3s from your EVO in your car (any car!), then this is it.

    Now all I need is my dock and I can run Google Navigation whilst streaming Pandora and I'll be in heaven.

    Just bought one. You can get one for about $50 on cellphoneshop.net by using a 20% coupon code. However, I opted to purchase it through Amazon.

    Yea, you're looking at $50-60 after shipping. Great investment.

    After having Ford/Microsoft Sync for two years...I can never go back to not having these features.

    Have you tried the nav while streaming yet? I keep forgetting to and I am wondering if the voice will come over my car stereo then so I can keep the volume up.

    +1 on sync. My wife loves it in her new Ford.

    i wish you could buy an aftermarket radio with it though.

    Just got one of these babies myself from cellphoneshop.com. With the 20% discount coupon code, total was $48.98. Woot!

    Awesome. That was my plan originally, but I checked the store's resellerratings. Pretty scary. I figured that I'd just pay the $10 extra to get it through Amazon. :)

    Here in Northern NJ/NYC area any FM transmitter is totally useless since the FCC reduced their output power a few years ago. You have to constantly change the frequency because there is no open channel available.

    Well the good news is I got my device and it works great. There is some static going through certain areas where I live, but at least The Cell Shop didn't welch on my order as they seem to have with other customers. Got it in less than a week, was brand new in the package.
