    Aren't you talking about the FM Radio app that comes pre-installed? If so...you have to plug in headphones for it to work. I have listened to FM radio on my X.

    Hope that is what you meant.

    Do you have a license to transmit?

    The X cannot transmit on FM.

    It has a built in Receiver...Not a Transmitter.

    You wouldn't need a license for such a tiny transmitter.

    If you want your X to transmit on FM, you can always buy something like a Griffin iTrip. Be warned though, these things almost always dissapoint. I have had two such devices (the one I linked and a different type that used batteries) and while they technically do work, they don't work particularly well unless you're in a rural area with little FM interference. I live near the heart of Columbus, Ohio and even in this not-so-huge-city all you get is static and earrape as you drive around.

    That app is so u can find a radio station to use with an FM transmitter. The phones cant transmit. u can however buy an fm transmitter from most stores that u plug into ur headphone jack and it'll play through ur radio that way

    Music from Droid to radio

    I have a Droid X, and my daughter has the Droid Eris. I bought the motorola T505 fm transmitter/bluetooth. I use it in the car and in my house to broadcast Pandora music from my phone to my stereo system in the house and though the car. It's very easy to set up. You "pair" it up, and it automatically finds the best FM station to use. I've been doing this for 7 months and the reception is very clear. I did a lot of research on what the best transmitter was, and the T505 got 5 stars from Amazon. Verizon cells them too, but Amazon is much cheaper. It's also wireless, and runs for several hours! Comes with a usb charger. I highly recommend it. BTW...you can answer incoming ph calls through it too, and the music automatically stops and starts up again when the call is complete.

    Yeah I seen one of those.....but I've seen my co-worker play the music, downloaded music on his phone ...to a vacant Radio station he had a d1? He said it was a hack. There was no physical transmitter just the phone and I guess The app, and radio.

    I bought a Bluetooth hands free transmitter for $29, a Plantronics and it works well transmitting to the FM radio in my truck but doesn't handle the calls from my D2G. It did in the beginning go figure. Play my music fine. Most of my music I prepare on my Ubuntu PC then transfer via USB. Would be nice if I could get my D2G to receive FM and even nicer it it could transmit as was what I was lead to believe when I bought it.

    Maybe if I get the Motorola hands free it would work better or do I have something configured wrong on the D2G?

    Wow after about 7 messages about separate transmitters he specificly says "an app or hack" so we understand there is a Bluetooth transmitter and no need to post it again. And I've been looking for a hack like this too for awhile and had no luck
