    Hey everybody,

    Was just looking at headunits that will do hands free calling and play podcasts/music that I have stored on my phone without issues. I was wondering if anyone else here has a headunit that integrates well with their droid.

    I don't use these things myself...but I'm pretty sure I've seen people complaining about not having this feature

    I know Ford Sync works great with android phones supposedly. I am not expecting ipod like integration, but the ability to make hands free calls and play music off of the SD card on the phone (as well as podcasts).

    Well yeah you can play the music from your sdcard...for sure

    Just the hands free calling is what I'm referring to....that's something I know I've seen people wishing they had....although there may be something, not 100% but I'm almost positive

    I've got a JVC which works REALLY good. Head over to Crutchfield you can search to your criteria (i.e. BT, price range, dingle or double din ect). They are generally the cheapest by far and will include all the hookups/adapters you'll need (and in most states you won't have to pay tax:icon_ banana:).

    Never heard that. I have heard that you can't voice dial though.

    I cant voice dial, but the headunit sync's with the Droid and i can quickly dial through the headunit.
    Bluetooth works, Bluetooth Audio works... and if you have BT Audio connected Google Nav will play though the BT as well.

    Question, if you can voice dial via the phone, why can't you voice dial via Bluetooth?

    I have a Kenwood KDC-X993 that I got for Christmas, It works with A2DP on my Itouch and hands free bluetooth on my droid, havent tried them at the same time yet however... Only problem with this deck is the glare on the screen can make it hard to see the display as mentioned in lots of reviews. Anyway here is the link at Kenwoodusa.com
