    listen to mp3s from pearl through car

    Advertisement



    I saw a thread about getting a headphone adapter to play music from your blackberry through your car stereo. Well I just wanted to say I tried it with my pearl, and it worked. T-mobile has the nokia 5300 and they come with and they sell the headphone adapters needed for the conversion. So I got one of those and I spent 10$ at wal mart for a car kit, and i tried and it works great!!!! So if anyone is looking for those headphone jacks you can probably get them from nokia, or from t-mobile. I've only tried it with the car kits that comes with a cassette because my car has the tape and cd deck inside.
    I've also noticed that if someone calls I can hear them through my car speakers but unfortunately they can't hear me. I'm working on something to see if it can be heard through the car so it could be a "poor mans bluetooth car kit"
    just thought you might be interested.
    and if anyone has any new info let me know
    thanks

    thanks jonnyxedge. i have tried the headphone 2.5 -> 3.5 adapter that i had w/ my Treo 680, but it doesn't work that well. so just know that they don't universally work - but i'm glad to know that the Nokia one works well with the Pearl. may have to go pick one up

    Seidio makes an adapter with a built in mic. It works very well and is what you need to complete your "poor man's bluetooth car kit." The adapter is about $15 bucks with the mic.

    Does this only work if your car has a cassette player?

    Wow that's awesome about the mic. Ill have to check that out. That's a neat thing to do.

    Oh and playing the mp3 through your car works through cassette. Ill have to look into other options with people without a tape deck~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Some newer cars have the facility to connect to your I-POD, so I suppose it would work with the bb and with the sedio adaptor and mike.

    It will work with a CD player with an Aux Input on it (which you won't find on many factory stereos installed before 2006).

    Seidio's "Standard Audio Adaptor", will run you about $10 + shipping....

    I was going to get that one, but I am rarely in the car alone so that's why I didn't get it.
