    FM Tuner Options?

    Anyone know of a way to add FM tuner capability to the i760? Is there a MicroSD card FM tuner on the market? I've looked but cant find anything. I'd like to get the new S9 bluetooh headphones but need FM for the gym.

    You can also try The Stream Center web site. It lists the URLs to stream most of the stations in my area. The streams are via mp3, wma, or ram.

    FM? Why FM? Geez, you've got MP3's, internet or satelite radio software options (above and other threads). As far as I'm concerned, with all the junk on broadcast radio today, I'd personally just as soon have the FCC auction off the AM and FM bands along with the 700 MHz analog TV band as well. Sell it all to Google or Sirius. Seriously!

    For Modulated Radio

    I know, it's a strange request. The main reason for this is at my gym they modulate the TV audio for the various TVs around the place onto various FM frequencies. My current MP3 player has a FM tuner in it so I can pick up these broadcasts, but I'd like to just use my 760 instead with the bluetooth headphones and I'd lose that functionality without an FM tuner.

    I can't believe someone doesn't make a SD card FM tuner, let alone a microSD one. I did find a Windows Mobile phone with one built in (msmobiles.com - O2 XDA Atom - The Jukebox in Your Pocket, but no aftermarket solutions.

    you'd probably have an easier time getting a bluetooth adapter for your mp3 player/FM tuner.

    If you can get the bluetooth to work correctly with the i760...

    If he had a bluetooth adapter for his MP3 player/FM tuner then the i760 wouldn't even be in the picture. Just use those BT headphones directly with the MP3 player.

    Yeah, I realize that's an option. I just don't want to carry two devices if I can avoid it. I need my phone with my anyway so adding the capability there makes the most sense if its possible.

    Of course I also just want to do as much cool stuff with my phone as a person can possibly do

    So have the gym set up a stream over wifi

    maybe you can hack up a dd-wrt router to do it somehow. You can add an sd slot to the wrt54g, put in the sd fm tuner and stream it over the wifi.
