    Default looking for an app to play music from phone to radio wirelessly

    I want to be able to play the music off my phone on my car radio with having to use an auxiliary jack since by truck does not have one.

    Any recommendations?

    i assume your stereo probably doesn't have built in bluetooth support either?

    the links provided by Gekko are great reads!

    Briefly, your physical options are RCA cable (which you don't have) USB connection (which i am assuming you don't have) or a tape-deck adapter. Of these options i prefer USB as the audio loss is going to be minimal.

    Your wireless options are a stereo with built-in bluetooth, a radio transceiver that connects manually to your device, or a hands free device that has a FM Transmitter.

    An FM transmitter will broadcast to a (typically) lower frequency wavelength so that you can listen to your device on your FM radio in your car. This works fairly well. Sometimes you might have to adjust the station a few times to find one with no interference and you will almost always have a little bit of white noise using this option. It can be particularly hard if you live in a more FM saturated area like a big city.

    These devices can hook directly into your device, either through a USB port or more commonly through the headphone jack. Or you can get one that will pair wirelessly with your device.

    I got one of these:

    Motorola T505 Bluetooth Portable In-Car Speakerphone

    I love it. It serves as my hands-free device for driving and for the music on my phone. I can enjoy hands-free phone calls over my car stereo and it works seamlessly with my phone. For example if i am listening to music and i get a call it pauses the music until the call is over. For $50 you're not going to do better unless you start looking at the more expensive higher end devices. My only complaint with the motorola is that it scans stations it thinks will work best and doesn't let you manually select them. Sometimes this can be a little frustrating as you have to keep hitting the button to find the perfect station.

    That being said if i lost or broke mine today i would buy a new one immediatly - it is perfect for my needs. and after owning it almost 2 years the battery is still going strong. I charge it maybe once every 2 weeks and i use it at least 45 minutes every day.

    hope that helped
    good luck

    Did you try reading what I wrote or the links posted above?
    There is no app that will do what you are asking for without a hardware framework.
    Many modern car stereos will have built in bluetooth. If yours doesn't then your only wireless option is a bluetooth speaker that has an fm transmitter. There are several on the market, I linked the one I use above.

    Hey ! I'm studying in programming and I'd like to have something like this too... like a blue tooth to play music from anything to anything even if it doesn't have the specs... Use the radio signal to do it

    I'll talk to some friends and try to come up with some thing some day. Could be an open source project we make together.
    Can you talk to me more about the app that you are using ?

    Thanks,

    Olivox

    OK PEOPLE.......UNDERSTAND THIS FIRST BEFORE YOU ASK HOW TO PLAY MUSIC FROM YOUR CELL TO YOUR CAR STEREO.

    You can not do this unless you have a car stereo system that allows input through a few HARDWARE and software possibilities.

    To be able to do this you have to have:

    1. a car stereo with wifi or bluetooth ability.
    2. a car stereo with a 3.5mm jack, RCA jacks, or USB port.

    If your car stereo does not have these.....then the only other possibilities are crappy ways to make music play on your car stereo.

    1. am/fm channel tuner to radio.....
    2. wired cassette tape adapter
    3. wired cd adapter
    these suck because quality are not very good.

    So.....there is no magical app that lets you play music from your phone to your car stereo in other ways if your car stereo does not have the above elements.

    So....you need to buy a new car stereo that allows for phone connection via some way as stated above.

    Good Luck
