Bluetooth isn’t just for hands free calling

We bought a new vehicle late last year, and it came with a free trial subscription to Sirius satellite radio.  Living in such a terrible radio market as we do, it was quickly a favorite feature of the new ride.  Before I knew it though, the subscription had run out and my husband and I weren’t sure if the monthly fees (up to $17 a month!) were worth it.

Luckily, last week I stumbled upon an unknown feature of my new car – bluetooth audio connectivity.  I have loved Pandora for many years, first discovering it and listening on my work computer, and more recently using the Android app on my phone with headphones when I work out.  Now I can listen to it in my car, using that same app and bluetooth.  How awesome!

If your car has built-in bluetooth, simply pair your phone and car, start the Pandora app on your phone (available free in the Android market) and select the MP3 input on your stereo.  If you are a Slacker or Last.fm user, they should work in exactly the same way.
