I find that the audio for voice directions (when it works) is not very loud in the car. My radio does not have an aux input so I cant use that method to get the audio into the car speakers. I wonder if anyone has tried one of the many BT FM transmitter devices that are on TradeMe and allow playing music from your phone over the car stereo?
Thanks.

I don't know about voice directions but I regularly listen to music on my N1 through a FM transmitter that I pick up on the car stereo. It works pretty well.

I used to use a cheap Trademe thing but now use this

which both charges the phone and sends a signal to the car stereo unit. And it's pretty cheap at £7.99 including shipping to NZ
