    I want to listen to music/podcasts in the car but i'm sick of FM transmitters. There are supposedly some pretty good car visor mount speakers out there, that are great for phone calls. Can I also play podcasts, or stream my gps through them? Can anyone recommend a specific model that would allow me to do this?

    These two models looked good, but the reviews don't say if I can play music/gps through them. Does anyone know if it will work?

    So to answer my own question for those interested...

    There are bluetooth speakers that can stream the music/gps, but they need to support a2dp. The one's I listed do not (as far as I can tell), but I found an amazing one that does: Motorola t505.

    This thing is amazing - besides streaming from your phone (nice and loud and clear) it will take it a step further and find an open FM frequency and tell you what it is so you can tune your car radio to that station.

    Imagine - playing from your iphone over your car stereo with no wires whatsoever!
