This is the coolest default feature of the latest CM6 Nightly build!

Sound is clean, clear and crisp, great reception overall and sounds outstanding through my Bose Speakers!

I've used the FM Radio on my DroidX a few times, but it's more of a novelty since I already have a radio in the car and house plus at work I generally listen to streaming or podcasts. What I don't like is it only works (on the DroidX anyway) with headphones plugged in so it can use the headphones as an antenna. Pretty ingenious I think, but it would be nice to use it over the device speaker.

I wish there was a way to change which frequencies it picked up though, for example FM Radio in the US goes from 87.8 MHz to 108.0 MHz but if it could be expanded to also pick-up 144 MHz to 148 MHz or 50 MHz to 54 MHz it also be used as a 6-Meter and 2-Meter scanner which would be completely amazing! Heck bundle a transmitter in there for licensed amateur radio operators and you'd have hams swarming to these little devices and have TONS of neat opportunities for software (D-Star, ATV, SSTV, CQ, etc).
