I can't remember where I saw it but I remember reading that the Incredible can use the built in FM Tuner to broadcast the sound out of the car speakers rather than just receive FM signal to play on the phone. Does anyone know anything about this?

you would need an FM transmitter to do that and I don't think it has one built-in.

Not sure it would probably need some type of application or hack to get it to do that not sure it does it put of the box though.

Supposedly the chip has that capability, but it may need an antenna which may or may not be installed, and it hasn't been advertised as a feature.
It is unlikely this will work out of the box, and may never work without opening the phone.

But we won't know until someone finds a way to turn on that part of the chip

EDIT: And for the naysayers, This has an FM tuner out of the box... we're talking about an FM modulator, which the chip *does* support, whether HTC implemented it is the unknown

fm tuner just means you can listen to the radio on your phone... if it said FM modulator then it would mean you can transmit fm signal out of it...

That same chip also could provide us 802.11n. They managed to get that portion working after the fact on the Nexus One. I remain hopeful for this as well.
