I've been trying to get AT&T NAV to "play" through the car's speakers like Google Maps does.

After chasing my tail over the Internet, I called ATT NAV hot line and was told it only plays through the phone...

Is this true? :rolleyes:
Makes free Google Maps more user friendly.

When connected via bluetooth, you're only using a small set of the features of bluetooth. This is a problem with most vehicles. Google can cheat because google. There isn't a way that I have found around it, because the car doesn't see the phone as an audio source for anything other than calls.

Well, that's not exactly accurate. I can Bluetooth all my iPhone music and videos through the stereo.

Are you just not a fan of the in car NAV? While it does have some interesting routes on occasion and is overly polite, I haven't had any real issues with it.
That is so funny... just the other day I was giving a friend a ride in #22, and the Nav was on. Of course, it said, "Please, turn right", and his response was, "Wait... did your car just say 'Please'?". Every person says that!

Interesting. I've only connected android devices so far, and none of them have connected as anything other than a handset, which leaves A2DP audio out. I do have an iPhone around here somewhere that I can try. It would be nice to get some internet radio in the car(crapy base am/fm radio).
