    Am I correct in my assumptions, that I cannot stream my music on my phone to my car stereo, unless my car stereo supports bluetooth which it does not?

    You can get a FM adapter that will receive the music from your phone and then rebroadcast it as an FM signal. I have a Motorola T505 that I use for this. You can also pick one up at Radio shack that uses the 3.5 mm jack basically does the same thing.

    Motorola makes Bluetooth devices that you can connect your phone with and it will play over your fm speakers.

    You beat me to it! The t505 is the one I want.

    Does your car have either an AUX input or a Cassette player? I use the AUX input on a Town & Country, and a Cassette-->3.5mm adaptor on an old Quest.
    Music, Phone calls come out fine. Bing navigate needs to speak up, however.

    I drive an 07 Focus. It might have aux, but it does not have a cassette player.

    Does it have the Microsoft Sync? I think that has an internal BT link to any phone, iirc.

    No it does not, I am going to look at it closer and see what my options are. I may be going the adapter route if it works.

    Ah :( Well, the BT-->FM or just pure FM transmitter could always work.

    It is the factory stereo and mp3 compatible, just nothing fancy. I am going to check the manual to make sure there is not a way to sync my phone to it. Thanks everyone for the replies, I appreciate you clearing up my options. :)

    One question I have about the Motorola, it says it works off of bluetooth. Does my car stereo have to have bluetooth support? Thanks

    No. You pair your phone with the Motorola via Bluetooth and the Motorola will put out an fm frequency so you can listen through your radio.

    I use a Motorola Roadster BT-FM adapter, which can be purchased at most Verizon stores. The only annoying thing about it is that when you turn it on or when it connects to your phone it will say 'Droid'. However, one nice thing, it will read any text messages that you receive and let you respond to them hands free. My wife has one in her car and she uses and android phone but it will not do the same for her.

    I will point out that because it is using BT to connect to your phone, you will not experience any SRS sound enhancement to your music. In order for this to work the phone has be be physically connected through it's headphone jack to a AUX jack in your car.
