    Ok, so it may be a bit of a noob question, but how many of you use your Droid as a MP3 player?

    Recently, my stereo and iPod were stolen out of my truck, and now I don't have any type of MP3 player. I only really listen to songs while I am riding my Harley. I almost bought a 64G iPod touch tonight, but found a 32B micro SD for about a 3rd of the price. I figure if I can stick half my songs on that 32G card then whenever I do ride, I can swap SD cards and have most of my good songs to listen to, along with Pandora, when I have service.

    So how many of you use the Droid as a MP3 player and how long does your battery usually last?

    I do. And it depends. If I'm using it nonstop (like I usually am) about 2-4 hours. That's with the screen off.

    Well if I would be using it as a MP3 player, it will be in my jacket pocket and I won't be messing with it while I ride. And we never ride more than 4-5 hrs at a time to help fight fatigue.

    Right now I'm trying to find a way to put a 12V AC outlet on my bike so I can put a cigarette lighter charger on the bike without it looking too trashy.

    That is crazy short. I usually listen to music when I sleep and sometimes it runs all night and at most I've seen 30% drop in battery.

    I love the Droid as an MP3 player. I have a Bluetooth head set (it is stereo!) and use it whilst I am rolling around town. And sometimes I'll even listen to it via the car stereo's built-in Bluetooth connection.

    I've been fairly happy with bTunes (free from the Market).

    My music files are ripped for about a 4MB average file size. So, I can hold a lot of music on the SD card of the Droid.

    My droid is the only mp3 player I own. Between Pandora and the 32gb sdcard I have plenty of music/video with me. In my car I use a dock to charge and hold the phone (custom made out of Verizon window mount, car charger, quicksteel, and black spray paint.) with bluetooth connection to car stereo for phone and audio streaming. And on my bike I have a handle bar mount for the phone and wired connections for charger and audio to a Shark motorcycle stereo. Don’t even bother with the cigarette lighter mount. Just get a car charger, and hide the cigarette lighter portion under your seat. Run a fused hot from the battery to the tip of the car charger, and ground to on of the 2 side springs of the cigarette lighter car adapter. Make sure all contacts are taped up good. Then run the springy cord under your tank up to the handlebars.

    I use mine on my Harley all the time. However, I listed to pandora more than mp3s. Since the iPod has physical buttons its easy to switch tracks and so on, with the droid I have pandora set to switch tracks using the volume button

    this is what I need, a good set of bluetoof headphones.... not the startrek ear piece, [​IMG]

    I want headphones like [​IMG]

    what do you have? I need ear buds for the jeep. I simply can not hear my stereo in my jeep at 65 mph and doors off. Anything above 45 and it's just noise. I'm too hard of hearing.

    flamesuit on for wearing earbuds while driving, but I have no choice if I wwanna listen to music
