Ok, so before you think this is a repost, I'm not talking about mounting your droid and using it as a thumbdrive in your car. I'm talking about having it docked and charging kinda like an iPod only a lot better because it's using a standard USB instead of that crazy iPod connector.
So today I was putting some movies in my Droid to see how they play on it. While it was still connected to my laptop, I unmounted the Droid and played the movie and the sound started coming out of my computer speakers! If I'm totally missing something, forgive me for being so naive but I did not know you could do that. I've always thought that to have sound output, you needed to use an auxiliary cable and take it out from the headphone jack.
But if this works on my computer, shouldn't there be a way to make it work in the car? My only gripe about the Droid is your vehicle integration. You have a dock but no charger on it. You can plug in a charger but the audio comes out of the speakers. With my iPod I just pop it it and it holds it, charges it, and sends the audio through the speakers. But now I'm starting to think that we may be able to do the same with the Droid.
Has anyone tried this? Shouldn't there be a way to have the USB cable do both, charge the Droid and send the audio out to our car's speakers? If it works on computers, there's gotta be a way to make it work in the car. What do you think??
