Default ICS, Motodock, and Driving Mode

Has anyone worked through the proper settings for Motodock after the ICS update?

Observation: when I first plug it in, I get prompts for VZ Navigator that I don't find intuitive. Used to be driving mode screen started automatically. I don't want to respond to prompts each time.

One cool thing is volume rocker on Razr now WORKS in driving mode, so I can adjust the "pre-amp" up a bit. Used to be that the Razr output a weak signal to my car's audio input and required turning the car volume up a lot.

Bump. Curious if anyone has found a fix for this. Every time the phone is docked, VZ Navigator butts in and requires two prompts to clear it out before entering driving mode. I use Google Maps exclusively, for good reasons I don't need to go into here. I don't want to be prompted about VZ Nav settings each time I dock.

Usually there is a checkbox at the bottom of the selection box that says make this my default choice (or something like that). Are you checking that box? of course everytime Verizon or Google update their software, you will be prompted to select your new choice.

And then there is the uber fix! Google made it so that applications (even stock applications) can be disabled.

Open the app drawer.
Press the Menu button
Select "Manage Apps."
Select the “All” tab, and scroll down to Verizon Navigator
Tap on Verizon Navigator and then choose “Disable.”
If it says “Uninstall updates,” do that first and then disable.

You can do this for any of your bloatware you want to disable.

Now you won't be prompted for Verizon Navigator every time...

I pulled this from this article on Droid Life...

Thanks very much.

Note to other users, I had to mess with this a bit because the sequence on my phone didn't match the above instructions quite right. Long story short, I went Menu-Settings-Apps, THEN found an All menu, went to VZ Navigator, did Uninstall Updates, then finally Disable.

Thanks for the tip!
