    hey all! i just got an android eclair and i was hoping to use it as an ipod, but when i plug it in to my truck stereo(jvc nx7000) it knows something is plugged in to the usb port but cant communicate with it, what do i have to do to get this to work?
    very sorry if this is in the wrong thread

    i don't know of any apps that will let you connect via USB to the device as a player from that unit, the way it works for iPod is as a remote controller. what I would recommend is perhaps getting a 3.5mm line out to AV/line in and connecting it that way. I believe the nx7000 (VERY NICE BTW) has inputs for that.

    The other option that I think would be best is to just connect it via BT for audio streaming (also supported by the 7000) and get the audio that way

    I have only seen your unit once, but i know it supports BT audio streaming....which there is an app for for Android, so yes, I think that is all you need.

    wow creating a custom docking station for it for your f250 thats awesome, from what i know the f250 and f150 are pretty similar so if you want to create two custom docks and send me one i promise you i would use it :) but make sure to post some pics once you have it finished.
