Therefore I could use my old holder and keep the case on ? Anyone know about this ? Also when it switches on car mode does it turn on Bluetooth as I use a parrot hands free ? Would this be the best solution .
Little known fun fact - in the HTC Car application, tapping the connection icons at the bottom brings up settings for those.
Auto-connecting to known Bluetooth devices is one of the options.
If you have any trouble with compatibility with cables or holders that work for you, consider putting an NFC tag in your vehicle. Program it (not difficult) to switch you to car mode.
