    Hello, i just recently bought a droid. was looking for a car charger but figured i get a car charger that also has an fm transmitter to listen to pandora and such in my car. was looking around and saw 2 that seem to be good, just wanted to get some opinions if anyone has one of these or any other suggestions. thanks.

    Just look at those reviews. Neither of them have 4 stars. I would stay away from them. I bought a cheapo fm transmitter from Walmart a while back and it works great.

    problem with that is my car only has 1 outlet, i wouldnt be able to use a charger and a fm transmitter at the same time. i mean, of course its possible but i just rather get one that has it both in one.

    GROM Audio and USA Spec make devices that allow you to connect an iPod, USB stick, or standard stereo plug to your stock radio. It works infinitely better than any FM transmitter. I just put the GROM model in my 07 Tacoma, and I'm kicking myself for not doing it earlier.

    Looking on the GROM Audio site, they seem to have one that works for your moto.

    Products by SKU

    You'll still have to work out the charger business on your own, but I promise you'll be more happy with that than you will any FM transmitter.

    Yeah, I hadnt either until I started looking into aftermarket stereos for my truck. I like the way the stock stereo looks in the console, so this was a great alternative.

    It's literally a single plug to the back of your radio, took me 10 minutes to install.

    Many cars have an aftermarket line in option out there. FM transmitters, as a rule of thumb, should only be considered if all other options have ben exhausted.
