    Hey everybody,

    I was wondering how I can play pandora through my aftermarket (pioneer) head unit. It has a usb attachment but when I plug in my Droid 2 the sound still comes out of the droid not my car speakers. I know that I can play my mp3s through the usb but I would like to listen to pandora through the speakers.

    Is this possible?

    THanks!

    Does it have an auxiliary input?

    Can't push audio thru USB.

    Only ways are BT A2DP or use the aux input from the headphone jack on your phone.

    You cannot play it through a usb connection, you will need a headphone to RCA adapter and will of course need rca inputs on your head unit. Some pioneer units have them built in, some have yet another adapter that you would need. Look to see on the back if it has a red and white rca connector labeled RCA INPUT or Auxilary Input. If you do not have rca in, the answer is no.

    I have been using a motot505 fm xmitter with pandora. Works pretty good, but not as good of quality as a 3.5mm.

    I use the same thing. The quality was awesome until Froyo. Hopefully will be better after the next update. It's a rather expensive unit ($100), but worth it. My deck is a Pioneer aftermarket as well.

    Look into the bluetooth adapter or just go with the RCA hookups to the 3.5mm jack.

    edit, reading about it. it has aux in. so buy an aux cable and hook it up in the back and then run it to your droid. it is cheap and radio shack, etc will have them fairly cheap. can be done fast too.

    I use the Motorola T605 bluetooth stereo streaming with hands free calling. I have installed 4 of these. I bought the last couple from eBay for under $50. I have the installations well documented here: https://supportforums.motorola.com/message/234643#234643

    It is the best way to listen to your music, or Pandora, or any other stereo music streaming service. You can operate many features without ever removing your phone from your pocket.

    I also created an application to manage the media volume when you connect to a bluetooth streaming device. You can find that on Android Market. Just search for "A2DP Volume". Or, just scan this QR code: [​IMG]
    This app is free and open source. The open source project is here: a2dpvolume - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Hope that helps.
