    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.

    If its got a 3.5 or even RCA in, any device that accepts headphones can be played on it. If its RCA you need an adaptor. Your car is basically a big set of headphones

    Nope. The Griffin cable I have fits both the Droid jack and the car. Just watch the volume when you unplug the Droid! I learned that the hard way....:blink:

    My car has an aux input for the stereo and I use the droid 3 dock and the included cable to play, usic stereo. It works pretty good except any notification tones will interrupt playback momentarily to play. I can probably find a way around that using tasker or whatever but haven't gotten around to it. I also have to mute navigation instructions if I'm using that at the same time but aside from those it works as you would expect.
