Who would pay a dev for an FM transmitter app that actually works? (I would).

    The Droid has the TI wl1271 wireless chip which is capable of transmitting and receiving FM radio signals, the Motorai uses the same board and comes with this functionality. Several devs over at Alldroid have enabled the hardware (they are pro with linux) but haven't been able to write a real app that takes advantage of it. Such an app was written by a dev for a different phone and I believe that they are trying to convince that guy to port it to the Droid.

    See the poll and thread at Alldroid here: AllDroid - View topic - Droid FM Radio Thread

    Wouldn't there be issues with transmitting, like having to get an Radio Operator's Permit?

    Receiving FM radio would be pretty cool though...!

    i wouldnt really care about transmitting (i guess it would be handy on occassion), but i would really like to be able to receive fm radio (and would pay for that (maybe if one purchased app did both))

    The best APP using this would be to transmit to your car FM radio so you could use it as a hands free device.

    I would love to be able to stream music from the droid to my car radio without needing another device to plug in and keep charged.

    i would kill for this. especially if the signal strength is better than what is allowed (is it FCC? nah.. can't remember who polices that crap) right now. every FM transmitter on the market sucks for my car because the antenna is embedded in the back glass.

    I'd like to stream music to my car radio from my Droid, I assume this could be accomplished if this comes about?

    Worked great but if your main purpose is to transmit music through your radio, I wouldn't suggest it. I guess if you just want the basics it works, but if you turn your stereo up at all it sounds pretty bad.
