Android car audio via USB

I want to buy an aftermarket car stereo that supports streaming audio over a USB connection. I want the audio to be streamed over USB so that I can play audio from Pandora and Google Navigation through the car stereo.

I have a GSM Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.2 on T-Mobile. I think this should be possible because Jelly Bean recently added support for playing audio over USB, but this seems impossible to search for on the web because all of the information that I've found is about treating the phone as a mass storage device and playing MP3s directly stored on the SD card, not audio from apps on the phone.
I would like the audio connection to be USB instead of using Bluetooth or a headphone cable because I want the phone to be charging while it's in my car and I don't want to deal with Bluetooth pairing and remembering to turn Bluetooth off and on to conserve the battery.
