    Do they make something for the Droid to make it capable of playing music through your car radio like the iPod and iphone

    Do you have an Aux on your stereo?
    You can use a 3.5mm (I believe) and have the sound play from your speakers....

    Using the aux jack is all I can think of. Although, with my head unit (which is only for use with the iPod, no CD's) has a USB cable going to the back of it, so I can also use a thumbdrive for music. So I would suspect that plugging the Droid into that can work as well.

    If you have a factory radio you can PM me your make/model/year and I'll see what auxiliary input adapters are available for it.

    I use the Soundfly BT Ultimate Bluetooth Car FM Transmitter. It has an external microphone that I ran under the console and windshield pillar liner to attach to my visor. I now have a BT handsfree phone with the ability to play stereo music, podcasts, tv.com, etc. from my Droid. Calls automatically interupt the music. My Droid auto connects to the Soundfly when I get into the car. The Soundfly also has its own SD Card slot and a tiny IR remote control. A little pricey but it works great.

    Yup. You can't mount the SD card via the headphone jack. :p
