    I have read on this forum that it is possible to use the aux jack to hear a phone call through your car speakers. I can't seem to get this to work on my droid. Do I have to have a specific app installed or do I need something physical (a car docking station?) to get this to work?

    I plugged the cord in and tried it with the stereo on AUX and on FM with no luck either way. I also tried on and off speakerphone in both modes.

    If its simple set up that I've overlooked or simply operator trouble ;) can someone please tell me what I need to do to use this feature?

    Any input would be very much appreciated!

    I use my aux all the time to listen to podcasts and music, and have used it for some calls, but I didn't have to change any settings or apps its just always worked

    yea you shouldn't have to do anything extra. I connect to my aux all the time. Maybe your volume is all the way down? You should just be able to plug in and and be able to hear everything
