This week the Wife and I drove up to NC from Florida for Christmas vacation with the inlaws.
We just purchased new Droids with our contract renewal a couple weeks ago so the touch screen phone thing is still new to me.
To make a long story short this thing is truly amazing and probably the single most useful piece of electronics I have ever had.
My Wife purchased the car dock so we could use the GPS on the phone, which BTW is freakin awsome!, and while we were driving up I thought to myself it sure would be nice to listen to pandora through the phone on the car stereo.
I unplugged the RCA jack from the back of the Sirius player and plugged it into my DROID.
Low and behold I was listening to Pandora through my Droid into my car stereo and running the GPS at the same time.
Now here comes the real kicker. While driving along listening to pandora and watching the GPS I get a phone call from my dad and the damn thing automatically mutes the music for me to answer the phone. I answer it and I can hear my dad through the car speakers. I switch back to the GPS with the phone running in the background and we talk for a few minutes.
After the call it automatically switches back to pandora and I can hear the music again.
The same thing happens when the *****in betty, GPS lady, needs to give some directions. The music will mute while she speaks so you can here what she is saying. You can also set the volume for the GPS and Music independantly.
This is probably already known by some, but for me I have never seen a phone do this so it really blew me away.
I just wanted to share my experience for others to try with their Droid.
FYI- We drove from Tampa to Waynesville NC and not once lost signal or our 3G connection. Bravo to Verizon.
