    Maybe other phones do this too but this is the first one that i'v owned that did.

    For those whose car has an auxiliary input and use your droid for music and such, i discovered a hands free feature. I use a window mount for the Droid. If you are listening to music while it is plugged into the auxiliary input and a call comes in, just answer it. Not only will the call come through all your speakers in your car, but the Droid must jack up the MIC sensitivity cause i can talk to whoever called me at my normal volume. So I can listen to all the music i want, navigate, whatever, if a call comes in, i can talk hands free to.

    I have asked people that i am talking to how i sound, and most don't even know that my phone is like 2 feet away from my face. what's also cool is that if you take a call while navigating, you can go back to navigating while on the call. And if you don't switch back to the NAV screen, the NAV voice will still give voice prompts while on the phone.

    Easily the best phone i've ever owned.

    Hmm, I'll have to try it with the Droid further from my face. Usually I take the mount and put it on the driver side window so the phone is less than a foot from my face. I'm sure people think I look crazy doing this haha!

    I've found the best place to position it with the mount is near my rear view mirror so I can easily access the touchscreen without leaning forward and also look at it while keeping the road in my peripheral vision.

    Where does everyone else put it normally?

    DROID DOES!!! =)

    Car phones where the coolest.

    I can't imagine what the monthly plans were for those.

    I'd really like to know.

    I just noticed this yesterday as well. I just had it sitting on my passenger seat and people could still hear me just fine. No echo at all either. I went home and ordered a car mount for my phone last night. Can't wait for it to get here. I'm going to have to put a magnet on it to put it into Dock mode though.

    I also put mine near my rear view mirror. That works best for me. I'm left handed and it's much easier to work with for me and I just feel safer with it there.

    One thing about the car dock mode, when you take it out after arriving at your destination, make sure to hit the top sleep button otherwise you can end up touching buttons/calling people from your pocket....lol

    I found this out also while streaming news. I had an incomming call and just tapped the green phone logo and it worked well. I have the mount on the left of my steering wheel because of being a legty and the stream continued after the call, the car mount was well worth the purchase and the verizon model does a nice job holing the phone on bumpy snow heaved roads.

    Maybe my car is too old. It's a 2003 Lexus LS430. Where do you plug it in? Does it plug in the Droid 3.5mm jack?

    I was AMAZED when this happened to me. I was just driving along with my aux plugged in listening to Pandora when I got a call. It stopped the music and started to play the ring tone, I answered and to my suprise thier voice came in through my speakers of my car, I started to talk and BLAMO! Hands free for cars without bluetooth. I set my phone on the center console that covers the cup holders and no one has seemed to say "what?" yet. lol

    AMAZING PHONE, Droid Does.

    i actually made my wife do this. her aux input is in the front of the radio, so you kind of have this ugly wire hanging around but having the calls on the speaker is great for her.
