The chip can either be used as receiver or as transmitter.

Unfortunately not. Depending on the (car) FM receiver it could be
possible to convince the receiver to automatically switch between the
FM station and the gta04 frequency. Maybe its possible to use the RDS
functionality to advertise "traffic information" when the gta04 wants
to say something. A few FM car radios are able to recognize this and
switch to this channel.
