    I agree with Kay. There is no car mode in Tunein for iPad. Anywhere. Some people have set their iPad up in their car using mounts and also the iPad screen is larger than iPhone thereby making it safer. If the app clearly states car mode then it should be there. I don't have it set up due to o 3G but I do know of people who do and they live in UK.

    Locally we have about 24 broadcast stations that I can hear on my conventional car radio... TuneIn gives me access to over 50,000 stations... Of those stations, I've found many that are much more interesting than what is offered by the local broadcasters.. This may come as a shock.. But while I'm driving I also listen to MP3 music that I've downloaded from iTunes or ripped from my old CD collection. :) This is actually safer than the old method of using Tapes and CDs.. You don't have to take your eyes off the road to find a CD or tape and then remove or insert it into the player....

    Do you hook up your iPad to the aux port on your car stereo and then play TuneIn through that? Or do you just listen to the iPad itself?

    Wow, the thread is taking wild swings.

    To simplify and realign:
    1-The iPad app TuneIn description says it has a car mode (since v2.4)
    2-No one has been able to enable the iPad TuneIn app car mode

    PS to MrWednesday:
    I plug it in the aux port.

    Finally, an answer from TuneIn:

    Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue. Unfortunately Car Mode is not available for iPad. I apologize for the confusion.

    Well, at least now we know.

    Now they just need to update the app to SAY that...

    Really.

    I bet they would've sent me the same useless guidance they'd sent to others previously, but I said in my email, hey, please don't send me the same useless guidance that you sent someone else, because it doesn't work. Lol.

    Unfortunately, my car radio has no AUX input... I plug the iPad into an FM transmitter and then pick up the transmitted signal on my car radio. It's not the best way to do it because sometimes you get interference.... (Often from other people using FM transmitters in their cars :) ) .. I'm considering the purchase of a new car and one of the options I'll be looking for is a direct iPad/iPod/iPhone interface..

    You guys won't believe this

    I specifically said my question was for the iPad version, and I said I deleted/reinstalled with no success and rebooted as well.

    Kaykaykay, what's the name of the one who replied to you and confirmed the iPad app did not have a car mode?
