    How do I play my music thru my car radio?

    I'm sure this question has been asked but I've been unable to find it. I have a BMW 525 with built in bluetooth, so I already get my calls through my radio. Is there a plug in device that will also play my Droid music over the radio? I have a belkin product that does this for my Ipod but wasn't sure if there was someting for the droid. Clearly, I'm about as technically inclined as this dancing banana, so please forgive what is probably a very obvious question. Thank you, thank you! Patty

    What year is your bmw? Another forum user and I had a conversation about this. I could stream the music on mine but he couldn't.

    Outside of the radio you can add an aux input if you dont have one, or use a belkin tuner as well. They all pretty much work the same.

    bmw is 2006. How do you 'stream" music? Otherwise, they sell aux devices similar to what I have for my Ipod for the droid?

    Yes there is a belkin device that you can use for any mp3 player type device that is similar to the ipod one. It sends out a radio signal to your antenna and just plugs into your ear jack. Granted its not always the best especially if your antenna is in back of your car. but it is possible. I used to have one for a mp3 player i own but never got a good signal. But you can give it a try i picked it up at the smiley store ryhmes with ala 'cart. lol Not sure on the rules of store name dropping. But basically any fm transmitter will do the trick since the audio jack on the droid is 3.5.

    Check in your center console to see if there is an aux jack, if there is you just need a double sided 3.5mm cord plug that into your earphone jack on the droid and then into the aux port in the car and make sure your car radio is in aux mode. That is how my wife uses her droid in her 2007 Acura TSX. I however have 2005 Acura TL and it does not have an aux jack I am using a Monster 300 universal fm transmitter and I have tried several of them this has the sound quality comparible to your normal cd player which is excellent hope this helps...

    Thanks so much. I've learned that I need an fm transmitter (wasn't sure what this device was called). I will give the monster 300 a try. Hopefully it has a decent signal in the San Francisco are. Again, many thanks from a technically challenged person just trying to learn the most she can about her new toy!

    Don't use an FM transmitter.

    Use a cable from the headphone jack to the AUX in, or get a bluetooth A2DP receiver and do it in high quality for cheaper. There was a thread today with a link to one on amazon for like $30.

    Jeremy, is this a small contraption? I don't have an aux in on my stereo so how do I connect it to my stereo and to my droid. Sorry, I need step-by-step. Thank you.

    Disregard the earlier post. I didn't realize you were suggesting that I purchase a new stereo aka receiver. Thank you
