Yes. My Motorola Droid Bionic works fine - but not immediately.

It took a little hunting to find the music on the phone. When I first connected, an endless series of navigation app turn commands were played, like "In 600 feet, turn left" and "Go straight for 119 miles".

I found that I needed to use the iDrive/Media/External/USB/Search (a magnifying glass icon) function to find my music folders; I searched by Genre and located my tunes. Thereafter, it behaved as expected.
