    Does anyone know if you can connect your droid 3 to your car stereo like you can for the ipod? If so what cords etc. Do you need?

    Probably depends on your car.

    My Droid 2 Car Dock kit came with a cable that connects my headphone jack to the aux in on my car stereo's faceplate. I'm not sure if the Droid 3 Car Dock comes with it, but I would assume so. Also, I'm sure you can find just the cable somewhere, or order it online.

    What kind of car? Do you have an aftermarket stereo with an aux in or a stock one with the aux in already
    For my 03 s10 I ordered a aux out cable that piggy backs off the stock harness and then I ran a headphone jack to rca cable through my dash to connect to it.
    Cost was around 55 for both things

    Assuming your aux port is a standard 3.5mm port it will plug into your phones headphone slot and function as a "big speaker" if you will. All of your functions will still be controlled from the phone.

    If your aux port is NOT 3.5 this doesn't apply.

    Why wouldn't it work? I plug my droid into all sorts of stuff and it always works :p. Even my PS3, it's great!

    I'm having a different issue in my gf's car. She's got a bone stock 2006 Subaru outback and i cannot connect my phone to her stereo thanks to the lack of an auxiliary port on her stereo. Anything I can purchase or download to use my droid through her radio? That's what she does with her iphone 4. Such an icky phone.

    I don't have a car, all droids have 3.5mm output jacks to my knowledge, you would be hard pressed to find an modern phone with out one unless it's a cheap beater phone.

    I have two Motorola docks for the D3, one in my car where I stream audio via bluetooth and the other in my wife's car with it plugged into the aux input to the stereo. I believe there are two versions sold Verizon, one have the aux cable included and the other without. The. One that includes it has the aux output jack branch off of the usb connection through the dock. This means you don't have to plug in an additional 3.5mm jack to your phone every time you get into the car, just drop it into the dock. Unfortunetly this setup still requires you to control your music from the phone which is why I prefer bluetooth audio in my car so that I can control everything through the stereo.

    That's the same car I have, and it works just fine. I got an aux cable at Best Buy, plug it in and it plays fine.

    Well if you have a cassette deck (tape player) then go to radio shack and get an cassette converter it looks like a cassette tape but with a wire coming out of it. Then connect that wire to the droid. Standard is 3.5 but double check! My boyfriend uses this for his stock 92 ford Crown Victoria...

    I like this method or just get a new radio installed with bluetooth or aux line in:

    EDIT: Less than $30 with free shipping at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Scosche-FM-MOD02-Universal-Modulator-Satellite/dp/B001QBG614/

    I don't like the FM transmitter ones cuz it is a pain to find a station. I've had bad luck with them.
