Default Verzion Nexus Car Dock

Verizon Car Dock does NOT have the 3 pins to charge the Nexus

The part number for the Samsung version that has the 3 pins is:

ECS-K1F2BEGSTD

ECS-K1F8BEGSTA

The samsung version can be ordered here:
http://www.clove.co.uk/official-vehicle-dock-samsung-galaxy-nexus-ecs-k1f2begstd
http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/genuine-samsung-galaxy-nexus-vehicle-dock-ecs-k1f2begstd-p33499.htm

or Pre-Ordered here:
http://www.expansys-usa.com/samsung-google-galaxy-nexus-vehicle-mount-225505/

Feel free to continue talking about it, mainly if you found the Samsung Version in stock and how much. Etc....

I've decided that buying unique docks for each phone/device in my life is crazy and have switched over to the Tetrax XWAY

Tetrax - XWAY, EGO, GEO, FIX, FIXWAY, XCASE - XWAY line

I know it's not what you asked for but it's a great product so I just thought I'd throw it out there!

The reason I want the Samsung one is:

it connects with the 3 pins.. and on the base of the mount is where you plug in charging cable and audio cord.. I wont have to keep plugging it into phone everytime i get in car i simply just dock it and it automatically charges...

It could be that VZW stores won't have any stock until the GN is officially announced.

I agree with BV about the Tetrax mounts. I've used three different versions and they have all worked great. I bought a cheap case for the GN and will put a magnet on the back so I can keep using my current XWAY. If you will be using a case this is a great option.

With that being said, once there are a few different mount options specifically for the GN I will buy one. I plan on keeping this phone naked most of the time and I don't want to be sticking anything to the back. Hopefully I will only need to use the case for a couple weeks. As soon as somebody makes a mount specifically for the Nexus that does NOT attach to the window I will consider it. Hard to tell from the available info but I think this standard mount only has an option for attaching to the window.

Which is why i wanna buy from Verizon.. just called telesales. He looked and said it was on equipment list but couldn't find any. I believe him because he was like let me try this I wanna find out for personal reasons if we have any too.

No go. I thought some people had luck with telesales with ordering spare batteries and cases.

this pic from Droid-Life had me hopeful that Verizon was going to stock it:

SAMI515MNT could be something else worth asking reps... if this image came from somewhere Vzw-official. I dunno.

I don't even drive everyday, but I am lusting that car mount almost as much as the phone itself... I plan to use the usb port very little.

I do like that official navigation mount, but after viewing the Tetrax I think I may go that route since it's more universal.

The Verizon 5th Ave. store, downtown around 20th St., has one in stock. Maybe they'll ship it.

On the newer Motorola docks, they give you a USB cable that also has an AUX port built in. Verizon SKU for the cable is MICAUXCAB. I'm assuming this will work with this phone since its just a cable, but this would be perfect with the Tetrax.

I bought the VZW Nexus car dock from a Corporate store last night. They didn't seem to have any problem selling me the accessories early. So I bought them all. The car dock is amazing. My GSM Nexus fits snug and perfect (I wonder how the slightly bigger LTE model is going to fit...). It really is nice and functional. I don't see any Samsung model utilizing the three prongs, though. Mine is the one pictued above from Verizon, and appears to be the exact same one as the one on the Samsung website. If it's not, then I'll return it and get the three-prong car dock since they are identical in style?

If you're not looking to attach something to the back of your phone, here's another option. I'm going to continue to use this and save some $$.

Is it not the same dock as this?
Genuine Samsung Galaxy Nexus Vehicle Dock - ECS-K1F2BEGSTD

because that one clearly uses the three prongs... he even talks about it in the video... and not a USB connection. I don't really want a dock that uses the usb connection. I broke my OG Droid's usb port from too much plugging and weird angled pressure and whatever.

Could you take some pictures of it?

Even with the three prongs in that video you would need the cord with the microusb to get a charge still.

the dock itself has a usb slot, the other end would plug in vehicles 12 volt.

Darn. They are different. They look almost exactly identical except the usb port. Guess I will be returning it tomorrow and waiting for the official Samsung one to be released whenever if ever.

Just makes me hate VZW more, and glad I stuck with AT&T.

Could not agree more. I am a little worried at about the "material" on the back of phone and disk sticking to it.

I have done a few videos on this and it is the best mobile product I have bought.

This makes me angry, guess I'll see it for myself at the store tomorrow, but I am not amused... Why would they make an inferior version? Is it not an official Samsung version?

DOH... I posted this as a new thread before I realized there was already a thread for it (sorry for not searching first). Re-posting here because it's relevant...
-----------------

I just saw in this video that Verizon's version of the Vehicle Nav Mount for the Nexus DOES NOT have the 3-pin connection that I assumed it would...

Verizon Accessories for Samsung Galaxy Nexus - Vehicle Mount and Spare Battery Charging Kit - YouTube
I was all set to purchase this mount during tomorrow's release, until I saw that the 3-pin connector wasn't there.

The "GSM version" of the mount apparently DOES have the 3-pin connector capability, as shown in the video here:
Genuine Samsung Galaxy Nexus Vehicle Dock - ECS-K1F2BEGSTD - YouTube
I ABSOLUTELY want the 3-pin connector capability so that I won't have to plug in cables everytime I dock my Nexus. Not having that capability is a deal breaker for me.

Can anyone confirm that the GSM version of the dock is fully compatible with Verizon's LTE Nexus (including charging, audio, and of course that it fits)? Also, what do you think is the best place to buy the 3-pin version of the dock if you're in the US?

Is Bell.ca the only place you can actually order the GSM car dock, right now (not that they ship to the US or anything)? All I see everywhere else is "pre-order" or "stock by 12/29" ... I dunno if there's a country where you could have both, right now, without some friends over the border?

I'd like some clarification on this well. Assuming the price difference isn't too crazy I would pay the difference for the GSM version if the LTE one will fit.

Of course the only accessory I was going to buy got f'ed up by VZW. I'll keep looking for a "3-prong" mount online I guess.

It is so much better to plug audio and power cables into the base. You can just pop the phone in! ARG!!

because that one clearly uses the three prongs... he even talks about it in the video... and not a USB connection. I don't really want a dock that uses the usb connection. I broke my OG Droid's usb port from too much plugging and weird angled pressure and whatever.

Could you take some pictures of it?
VZW seems to have ordered cheapened docks that don't utilize the three prong stuff. What I am still trying to figure out is if the thicker LTE Galaxy Nexus phones are going to fit fine?? The three prong stuff should work the same.

I would like to know the power and audio use for the three prongs though as they seem to be used for both. If we figure that out custom or hacked universal docks could be done that didn't require cable messing when you dock the phone.

Here we go. None in stock, but a good price and seems they should have them before the end of the year.

Samsung Vehicle Car Mount for Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Nevermind that number ends STA rather than STD and seems to be missing the passthru and pins also.

Clove will ship it to you here for $85 bucks total. Stupid Verizon!!!

ECS-K1F2BEGSTD | Buy Vehicle Dock - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

And expansys-usa has it for $60, but not sure what they charge to ship. But they claim it won't be available until February. Guess they should be available at the same time though and these dates are all just guesses.

No. The correct number is in the listings in my subsequent posts. This is like the verizon one, but maybe with a different base. Basically cheapened with no pins and passthru for audio and power.

This crap is so f'ing annoying. Typical verizon. Even when they finally accept the chance to launch a killer phone, they can't take the time to get the details right.


Has anyone tried fitting the vz gnex into a gsm dock yet?

Also, a word of advice to those considering the TETRAX XWAY style mounts, those magnets looks like they are in exactly the same position as the NFC chip on the back of the battery...so if your thinking about doing it I'd test your NFC chip first, then mount it for a while, then test it again, and be possibly prepared to buy a new battery.

Not true.

Read up on it first.

Is there a car dock that doesn't require sticking it to the windshield? Maybe in a cup holder or something

ALurker explicitly mentioned he planned to put a magnet on the back of the phone. I realize that the XWAY includes a steel plate for that purpose instead.

I agree that there is likely no issue. Because of the quadrapole-esque layout and the steel (if steel is properly used as opposed to another magnet) there will be very little residual magnetic field. *However*, this doesn't guarantee it isn't enough to screw with NFC. I highly doubt NFC equipped phones were tested, given how few and recent they are.

NFC has two key differences that make it substantially different from just testing normal cell phone operation. First, it's purposely located as close to the back side of the phone as possible, directly on the battery. The rest of the phone technology is all at least a battery width or more away from the back side. Second, NFC chips are essentially BUILT to be extremely sensitive to magnetic fields (granted not static ones by design). They communicate by magnetic induction. And there is indeed some history that shows they can be easily magnetized enough to interfere with the phone's compass NFC Antenna (Back Cover) can be magnetized and will affect compass - xda-developers.

Again, I agree that the very slight residual effects of a properly used XWAY with a steel plate on the back of the phone will likely have no visible functional effect on the NFC chip, but it is a different enough situation from normal cell phone operation to warrant extra care and preparedness. Furthermore, if by some accident the phone was placed on the dock without a steel plate, or if a magnet was placed on it, etc. I'd definitely expect there to be some screwy stuff happening with the NFC chip.

I wonder if the Samsung mount can be separated from its base... I want the 3 pin functionality but won't be mounting it on the windshield.

The ports for the usb and aux cables are on the bottom of the arm so it seems you'll have to use it as is.

Might be kind of an expensive accessory to cut up, but i was thinking of extending the wires between the contact points and the charging base and having the base located remotely.

I'm just waiting for verification that the Verizon LTE version will fit (and work correctly) in the GSM dock before I buy one. Anybody find out yet?

Will it work with the Verizon one though? The LTE version is thicker than the GSM version, so wouldn't that cause issues? My Nexus fits very snug in the Verizon dock...

I'm thinking the same thing now. I ordered one from Fommy .com but no idea on ETA. If it's a close enough fit where some filing down or cutting will make it work, I can live with that. But the ports in the base are kind of key for me.
