Default Discussion of the car dock for HTC EVO 4G LTE

I'm sure most of you have seen the one-x car dock/cradle.
http://m.androidcentral.com/htc-one-car-dock-and-app-best-vehicle-experience-yet

Any thoughts on if htc will offer a USB version for the EVO since we don't have the pins on the back? This was one accessory I was really looking forward to.

the original HTC EVO 4g had a top of the line dock from HTC as well so i'm sure they will make one for this bad boy...

the only thing i noticed was that the LTEVO is lacking the docking pins so it won't be as easy as just simply sliding it in, you'll have to gently work the charging port into your phone from the dock... minor details though

The other thing the pins probably do for it is to signal to turn on the car app automatically.

One thing I've noticed from the videos of the new EVO is that it looks like Telenav is missing from the app list. Google nav is getting better but I still prefer Telenav. I use it every day on my commute.

Agreed! I think Telenav is better than Google nav!

The pins aren't necessary for that particular feature. The Photon automatically kicks into cardock mode when it's plugged into its dock, and it uses a USB plug. I would hope the LTEVO would do the same. Also, it looks like the card dock in the link precludes the use of any kind of case, maybe a requirement of the pins. A USB plug makes a case-friendly dock possible (not that it will happen, but hope, etc.).

Thanks for posting this. This is something that's extremely important to me. I am curious to see how the dock connects to the holder (if it's fully attached or if it can be removed). In the article, it mentions that there's a dongle that plugs into the AUX port, but what if your car stereo doesn't even have an AUX plug and you're using a 3.5mm adaptor?

HTC One car dock and app the best vehicle experience yet | Android Central

Based on the "prototype", I'm still digging the Motorola dock for the photon a little better, but we'll see what the LTEvo version looks like, when it's finally released.

One thing I can say with Motorola that I never experienced with any of my HTC devices is majority of the OEM accessories were available right out the gate on release day! I had my HD dock and Car dock from day one that I purchased the Photon. Hopefully, HTC sees the importance of having the accessories available right away.

Hmmm...yeah, as I suspected, HTC has their proprietary holder on the dock (similar to the one I had for the EVO):

http://cdn3.sbnation.com/entry_photo_images/3197934/htc-roundup-21-verge-800_gallery_post.jpg

Having experienced how good Motorola's car dock is, I don't know if I want to go back to HTC's offering. Placing that thing on the center of the windshield is not an option (CA is illegal) and I recently discovered that my Motorola car dock works with Garmin vent mounts, due to the universal ball/joint connector that they used on the dock. I realized how important it was to have the vent mount because it keeps the phone cool on hot/sunny days.

Okay, so that's a minus for HTC as compared to my experience with Motorola.

Starting with my Moment, now to my Evo 4G, and I expect to my future LTEVO, I have and will be using Tasker to implement my car docking features (which simply blows away ALL manufacturer implemented car docking software AFAIK). To put it simply...

When I get in my car, I put my Evo in the universal holster, then I plug in the charging cable. That then prompts my phone to turn on its bluetooth radio, which connects to the bluetooth headset in my car. When that happens, the following occurs:

- Wifi radio turns off.
- GPS radio turns on.
- Screen Timeout turns off
- Launcher Pro launches, throwing up a different background and a custom homescreen filled with shortcuts that are useful when driving (Navigation, Wifi tether, Maps, a very large clock widget, a couple 1-touch calling shortcuts, pandora, etc).
- Screen orientation changes to Landscape (making the clock widget even bigger).
- Screen brightness changes depending on the time of day (very bright during the day, and dim during the night).
- SMS auto-response is activated, informing texters that I am driving and to call me if they need me.
- SMS reader is activated, reading all incoming texts out loud to me.
- Then when I park and disconnect, everything goes back to normal, PLUS the phone automatically saves my car's location for later before it turns the GPS off.
- Later, if I don't remember where I parked, I simply touch the widget on my normal homescreen and it brings up my car's location.

Yes, I have to take the extra step to plug the charger into my phone, rather than it automatically being activated by the dock itself... but whatever that dock launches can't compare to my setup.

Edit: Again, this is all accomplished by using Tasker (which does launch Launcher Pro for the homescreen stuff, but that's all Launcher Pro does).

My interest in docks has always been because of the physical dock itself, not the programs. But I can definitely see how Tasker can come in handy.

Tasker, and apps like it, are by far the greatest apps there are, for any device, on earth, or anywhere else. IMO, Tasker is what makes an Android an Android.

I've been asked why I don't switch to an iPhone, my response was always and will always be the same... I essentially give a list of things that Tasker can do (see list above for not even half of what I use it for) while adding the word "automatically" as a precursor to nearly every item on the list, with a couple Android features thrown in for good measure. That usually gets the iPhanboy clam-up... which is a shame because I usually would love to rant more about what Tasker can do.

LOL...I usually give a one phrase answer, "I don't want to be locked into Apple's proprietary ego."...HAHAHAHA.

If they want more, I say, "I like being able to use FREE navigation on my phone."

Yeah, that probably is the better answer. It doesn't lead down the road of aneurisms or self mutilation.

I have compiled a list of all the reasons why I prefer Android over iOS. I'm not going to share it with you guys cause it's my own personal preference, and I'm sure most of you probably share many of the same reasons I do.

It always amazes me how long this list really is. I've been adding to it for a long time now. Every time I think of a clear advantage, i write it down. When I'm asked why I prefer Android, I usually can't come up with much, mainly because the answer is pretty much that the OS is almost better in every possible way. And I don't want to be a jerk about it. I have the list to prove to _myself_ I'm not just being a fanboy.

GPS Nav was the very first reason I discovered. As soon as I got in my car from the Sprint store with my Evo 4G, I decided to see if I had "gps." I came from a blackberry. I was jawdropped when I discovered I had voice turn-by-turn that rerouted and all that good stuff. And very surprised to learn later that the iPhones didn't have this out of the box.

Tasker came much later, but I totally agree about using it to override the default car dock mode. It still amazes me to have access to the raw data from the light sensor, proximity sensor, etc. to use as conditions for a rule. So much power if you're willing to apply yourself a bit to learning what's available.

I always knew Tasker was powerful, but it's fun to hear what people have managed to do with it in real world situations. I'll definitely keep it in mind if the LTEvo replaces my Photon.

Yeah, and that list was merely a compilation of about 1/3 of the Tasker profiles that I use. But this thread is about car dock stuff, so I don't want to go into all the other useful stuff here.

Over on the One X forum there are people showing their new car docks. They don't use the pins on the back of the phone. They just have a USB cable attachment.

They already have a car dock for the One X but don't know where you'd buy one. It is kind of odd that they come out with EVO accessories (other than cheapish cases) so much after the device. Gives the aftermarket a chance to get more business. Here's a review of the One X car dock.

My Sprint store got accessories in today also. I am on my way to work and if I can hurry and get ready I am running in there. Me and my friend both want a car dock. I bought the one for the 3D from Sprint so if it is similar where it attaches to the windshield by suction cup I'll like it alot. The guy at the store when I called said it was and that it was cool looking. But if you can post a picture my friend would love to see it. He also said he has a pink otterbox and I was kind of hoping it looked like this but I am getting Seidio there my favorite. But having one purple and one pink would be nice.

I thought I replied and don't see it. But my Sprint store got all there accessories today also. I'm gonna stop in there and get a car dock. I had one for the 3D from Sprint and loved it. I had a home dock from Seidio that I loved also. But Sprint had the car dock 1st and i got it from them. I don't really need another accessory and my friend was wanting a car dock and changed his mind. But someone posted a video of the accessories and I heard in the background there was a pink otterbox. My store has it and if it is this one I am going to try it but mobile city had it for 24.95. I am getting a purple Sedio surface case which I love seidio so I may not get this pink otterbox but if it's this same one in the Sprint store I may for the 20% will see. I just want the phone already. LOL!

And I called Best Buy and I have the print out and was told yes I will be able to use my phone freedom 50 and the 50 that comes for pre-ordering combined towards the phone. I know there was a discussion about it but she told me if that's what it says and it says they can be combined that they will honor it. So getting the phones for a 100 bucks selling my phone and accessories for 250 I came out good. Now anytime Best Buy wants to send me that email.

Looks like HTC took a cue from Motorola and made the connector between the dock and the mount a universal ball mount that's used for GARMIN's!

What does that mean exactly?

Well, for those that don't really like suction cups for their mount, this form factor allows you to use any of the mounts available for Garmin's.

I personally decided to try out a vent mount and it's been working perfectly for my MoPho car mount:
Amazon.com: IG-A03: i.Trek Vent Mount for Garmin Nuvi 200, 200W, 250, 250W, 260, 260W, 270, 205, 205W, 255, 255W, 265T, 265WT, 275T, 500, 550, 680, 750, 760: Electronics

There's also proclip mounts that I actually might finally decide to go with because they have mounts specifically for your vehicle:
Device Holders and Dashboard Vehicle Mounts*-*ProClip Car Mounts for Mobile Phones, Tablet, and Handheld Devices

-EDIT- The one thing I'll add to this is that Motorola actually provides both a charger and an adaptor that has a 3.5mm output connector, so that allows you to charge the phone AND connect the phone to your car speakers via 3.5mm w/o having to use the 3.5mm input on the phone.

Before people respond saying, "just use bluetooth", keep in mind that bluetooth sync is not something compatible with all cars, so majority of the people out there won't have that option. I don't even have an AUX input on my car, so I have to use a tape adaptor!...LOL.

Because of this format, I thought I'd also post the pic that I put up on Amazon where it's mounted to the Motorola Photon car dock and should also be able to do it with the LTEvo car dock now:

I just picked up my car dock and media link. Unfortunately the car dock does not come with a charger but any micro usb car charger you had before will hook right into it, but if you don't have one you will have to get one.

None of the htc car docks I've purchased came with a usb cable. Keeps costs down.

How much is the dock at sprint?

Can anyone post up the sku number?

Yup. It's standard for HTC not to include the USB charger w/ the car dock.

That said, Motorola did provide one and I believe the cost of the car dock for my MoPho was the same as HTC. I know this turned a lot of people away from buying HTC specific accessories because they were so expensive, but weren't that much "better" than universal ones (at least by their standards).

Thanks for the heads up drexappeal!

Can you guys confirm if the ball on the HTC mount is the same 17mm ball used for the Garmin mounts?

I'd love to be able to get one of these to mount it:

No problem. I hope it is the same size because there'd really be no point of their making it like that otherwise. If it didn't work, HTC would be better off going with their old design where the dock and the mount are connected permanently.

Two Sprint stores near me told me they don't have any EVOLTE accessories yet. May or may not be true. I guess I'll wait till I have the phone in my hand before I try again.

My store tried telling me they didn't have accessories neither yet and when I said well others stores do he double checked and said oh wait we got a box in today. I was going to post a pic of the car dock but I see someone else did. I had it last year and I like it suctioned to the window. I have a car charger now so I just use it and plug it in to the back. I didn't need an extra case cause a seidio one is on the way but I saved 20% and I am tired of purple cases wanted pink. LOL! My friend ordered me a cheap purple gel case off ebay for like 5 or 6 bucks and she got them last Thursday and it was just something to hold me over till I got my Seidio one but of course the phone didn't come out on Friday so now I don't need that case but I have to pay her for it so I'll check it out.

Yes, 17mm according to my micrometer.
I like the way that the phone sits in the dock, but it is so far away that I would need a remote to use the phone in my Silverado. I am looking into getting the ProClip mount with the 17mm ball attachment and using the HTC dock. It will be expensive, but way more useful.

Is there a way to add apps to the Car Panel? I use the Sirius/Xm app whenever I am in my car, but the Car Panel doesn't seem to allow it.

Yea the car panel app is very nice but I need to be able to customize it which it does not appear you can.

Does anyone know of a car panel app in the store that is customizable?

I used the early version of this app on my original EVO:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.cwfk.ig88.carhome3&feature=search_r esult#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsIm5ldC5jd2ZrLmlnODguY2Fya G9tZTMiXQ..

The MoPho has a built in car dock that you can add apps to, so I never downloaded another car dock app.

I did see that one. I am going to give that and Car Home Ultra a test drive over the next few weeks and see if I like them better.

I also was wondering if there is anyway to get the stock music player to pick up offline cache like poweramp and other music apps can?

Car Home Ultra is super sweet. I love the info that it is giving you including speed and weather.

Only issue I had was that it is constantly using the GPS, causing my OG EVO to overheat badly in the summertime.

Instead, I use "Car Dock Home V3" for normal everyday use and then "Car Home Ultra" occasionally in the summer time and normally in the winter.

I bought pro versions of both apps and I love them both.

I do not know the size but, I just tested it with the Garmin beanbag dash mount and it does fit and works in portrait or landscape.

What is Car Home Ultra I may want to try it. I had Custom Car Home before on my 3D and used it in the dock. I may redownload it since I am used to it. But I will read about this Car Home Ultra never heard of it. I need the best car locator app one that not only will tell me my parking spot but more importantly I always forget what floor of the parking garage I am on. Is there one that does that?

I also was wondering if there is anyway to get the stock music player to pick up offline cache like poweramp and other music apps can?
