Default Can Pandora Radio connect to GS bluetooth?

I noticed there's a bluetooth option for Pandora Radio on my wife's Blackberry. I have the phone connected to bluetooth in the GS but can Pandora be connected & played through the car's audio system?

Short answer, no. It does not support A2DP, which is the protocol used for stereo bluetooth. The 2010 GS does support this, however.

Any compromise in the sound quality using the tape adapter method?

I would agree that it sounds a bit more flat than CDs or iPod or excellent FM station. But I would say it's on par with an average FM station. I only got my adapter yesterday, and listened to maybe about 8-10 songs through it. Given that the price of the adapter is near zero, it's definitely a fantastic value and a good addition to my car.
