    Aux cable. Your car needs the input though.

    I bought a car holder that holds the evi and charges it and has a built in fm transmitter.

    Not exactly high fidelity though (in fact it usually sounds pretty terrible). AUX is the way to go if you have it.

    As others have said, there are several ways you can do this.

    1. Aux cable is probably the best way if your head unit has an aux input. This is basically just a cable with a headphone plug at both ends. You can get them anywhere that sells electronics for about 5 bucks or less.

    2. Bluetooth is the cleanest way since it is wireless, but you need to have a head unit that supports A2DP.

    3. Cassette adapter. Cheap and easy if your head unit has a cassette player. These have been around since the days when everyone had those portable CD players.

    4. FM transmitter. These can be a little expensive for one that works halfway decent (around $50) but your only option if none of the above options will work for you.

    Did you put your stereo on Aux? My car has one button that flips from CD/Radio and AUX.

    You shouldn't be getting any sound out of the phone if you have the aux cable plugged in. Do you get the little headphone icon in your notification bar when it's plugged in?

    You can't do that. We're not talking USB cable, we're talking the headphone jack. If your car stereo has an aux-in headphone jack, you want to use a cable and connect it that way. The only reason it worked with the iPod Touch is because they have special programming in the stereo for them.

    It's not even vaguely complicated. You just don't want to try the options given to you.

    HTC didn't screw up at all. I'm sure they would love to make it work just like an iPod/iPhone but they can't because Apple has a patent on it.

    It's not complicated at all. You just need to look at the options and see which one works for you.

    Blame Apple/Your Car Stereo. It's a special iPod-only interface, there's no way HTC could do it even if they wanted to.

    There are cars that have better integration, like Ford's SYNC system. But for car stereos that only have iPod support, well, guess what? They mean it.

    Get an FM transmitter, such as this...
    Amazon.com: iriver AFT 100 Mobile FM Transmitter: $49.97


    Or upgrade your car's stereo deck with one that has an AUX input, such as this...

    I disagree entirely with your statement; I could argue that Apple screwed up big time by using a proprietary connector, and I would also be wrong. They are different products, you need to look for a solution that works with the product you own. Maybe in the end, your best option is to go with an Apple product.

    Have you considered going to a shop and inquire about adding an auxiliary stereo jack to your sound system? in some models is possible.

    It is only complicated if you try to use a solution that does not work

    If you don't have an AUX and you don't have Bluetooth and you don't want to use an FM transmitter take your car to a good electronics shop and have them 'fix' it for you!

    I am currently using my phone thru my car stereo to listen to music. I bought a male to male plug in from radio shack. I think it was 8.99 for 6 feet took about 2 minutes to connect to the back of my stereo and then routed through my dash and up and behind the pillar and then to my phone.

    Works great and YES...the headphone icon is displayed on the phone.

    What kind of car or truck do you have? Make and model please. if you have a factory radio on something fairly new chances are you can get the hardware for a aux input to your factory radio.
