    why not having an audio out on the vehicle dock…would be nice to use the galaxy as an mp3 player too.

    No audio out on the car cradle is a big bummer, now I have to wait for a better solution before I get whatever Android phone I end up buying. Why is it that the iPhone the only phone that can get this aspect of mobile phone car integration right?

    Audio out cable? Get a car deck that supports audio streaming.

    Wireless Media Stick by HSTI
    I came accross the Wireless Media Stick and got one as an accessory to my Galaxy S. Now I take my laptop and share files and folders anywhere.
    I managed to stream a whole HD movie through the phone from my laptop to my non DLNA LG TV.
    Amazing! highly recomend the combination.

    The Home cradle looks fine but it is a tease: not exist, not work.
    Especially not in Australia. Tell me I’m wrong please!

    The Vehicle Dock Kit is poorly thought out.

    The connector masks the audio socket and provides a non-working audio socket that is supposed to take audio output from the USB connection.

    Unfortunately there seems to be no way to set audio to output via USB.

    The user manual states that audio can be output if running Samsung Car Home application, but this app is not available in Australia.
