    fm reciever?

    How do you guys get fm radio? I know there are a few older tabs that have fm, but most don't. I don't want to be tied to using data for fm if I don't have to be. Any other options out there?

    If you find one. by all means please post it. One of the issues with Android tablets is a lack of a FM radio solution.

    If your radio station supplies an internet stream, you could try TuneIn from the Play Store
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...n.player&hl=en

    It has almost all of my local stations available

    some devices have it, most do not. search the play market for fm radio and it will give you a slew of streaming options and a couple of non streaming options for select devices.

    the current solutions being used right now to retain FM radio, CD, steering wheel controls and bluetooth are to use a headunit tucked away either behind the tablet unit or in a glovebox or center console as the amplifier. Otherwise there are a few units such as my Ca-Fi double din that come with android built in and retain these features but they have some problems in and of themselves.

    Just need somebody to build an Android 3.1+ app to use Visteon/Directed radio, put it on the Play Store. They can make a buck-or-two to make up for buying the Slick USB serial library ($99). The app, of course, would talk to the radio via Mitch's cable.

    If I had the skills I would do it. There is something for MP3Car to do. Another (small) revenue stream.
