    Well, since I got this Droid X and started messing around with it, I have an idea. I bought the car dock today after messing with (and signing up for) Pandora a litttle bit. I have a lot left to learn about it (both the droid and pandora), but I'm starting to think I can get rid of my Sirius radio (and subscription) and use the Droid with either MP3's or Pandora. The only thing that I'd really be missing would be Howard Stern.....and he's talking about leaving soon anyway. Does anyone use Pandora exclusively in their cars? Anyone have any good Pandora tips or stations?

    Let me know and thanks,

    Warner

    I used to use Pandora. Just ended up putting all of my music on the SD card, haha. Search for the app Slacker Radio as well. I personally think that Slacker is better than Pandora. However, there are ways to work around the song-skip limit in Pandora. I think using the Droid in the car is much better than local/satellite radio. All I can tell you is make sure you have a charger handy. I don't know about the Droid X's battery life, but I know Pandora can suck juice like using a straw in a shot glass (Was that funny? I'm not sure). dancedroid

    I bought a USB cable today that plugs into my lighter adapter and into the car dock, so my X is actually charging while it's docked. And the other nice thing in this configuration is that the screen doesn't blank out, either. SO, how to you get past the 6 per hour skip limit with Pandora?

    I just switch to a different station and then switch back to the station that I actually want to listen to. Wouldn't recommend it while driving though, haha.

    Same here. Actually Sirius first for me and I also think Sirius launched before XM? Also, what is the fascination with Stern? I listened a few years back but I think he's jumped the shark nowadays...

    I love XM, however my company pays for it in my company vehicle, and they also pay the internet service add-on, so I use my phone to stream it and plug that into my personal vehicle and boom....got it there too :D

    I wonder if perhaps there might be a pandora song limit patch/crack out there :)

    If you're streaming does that mean calls go straight to voicemail?

    I have pandora on my phone and I am still going to get sirius. For two reasons one is much safer to control sirius and music threw the head unit than my phone. Also if verizon does go to limited data plans I do not want to have to worry about running out of bandwidth just by playing pandora.
