When traveling, we also use it for the portable DVD player for the kids (so they can hear the movie through the car speakers) and that way, DH and I can hear the movie, too -- or we can just listen to other things on our phones w/ our ear buds. I think it would definitely work for streaming, but that would use a lot of data (and battery life) on a trip.
Yep, make sure you have unlimited data. Also, I suggest having a car power adapter and keeping the phone plugged in while streaming.

Streaming music and/ or GPS does not use that much data.

THANK YOU!!

The Flexsmart x2 is PERFECT! The only (minor) problem is that a lot of the stations is selects end in even numbers (102.2 for example) but my car stereo only selects stations with odd numbers (102.1 or 102.3) which is a little issue. All I do is check the odd-numbered frequencies to either side of it, or I just push the auto-selector knob until it chooses an odd number.

My favorite Pandora stations are the comedy ones so I am listening to spoken word more than music so the sound quality is 100% acceptable, even with a little static. I am a die-hard Tigers fan and I am used to listening to AM radio. I found a station last night that is crystal-clear so that is the one I will be using around here. Obviously, between Michigan and South Carolina, I will be switching around a lot.

There is a USB port on the side so I can charge my phone with the transmitter plugged in. This is a nice plus because we have a total of 3 DC outlets in the truck, 2 in front and one in back. We will need to plug in the Garmin and at least 1 iPod, so being able to use the transmitter and my phone in the same outlet is a big plus.

This was the best purchase ever!
That's what I was going to recommend as well. I tried at least 5 different ones before I found the Flexsmart X2 and it's been solid for me for over a year. The Bluetooh connectivity works much better and the transmitter seems to be a lot stronger than others I've tried. Plus love the ability to charge my iPhone via USB while driving.
