    The car dock app let's you configure one of it's buttons with an app of your choosing. I ended going with the camcorder app and now have a very cool dash cam that's just a button press away. I don't know how many times during my commute I've thought "Man I can't believe that just happened. I wish I had a camcorder." Now I'm ready! :eek:

    Which app did you choose?

    Slacker, that's all I liten to. I wish I could replace the music app with slacker and then add another app, but since we only choose 1 I went with slacker.

    For now I replaced it with Rhapsody (using the trial). I like it but I don't know if I'm willing to spend $10 on it, so I'll likely replace it with Slacker or Pandora.

    I had been using it for Pandora, but now I use Tasker to activate Pandora when the X is in the car dock and the audio cable is plugged in. I'll have to think of something else now.

    I would like to have something that was just like the dock panel, except with all user definable buttons, as my chosen app. That way I could have a whole second page of apps. And if that page got full I could make a third.

    I currently have Sirius Radio as my app, but the only problem is that it doesn't do landscape mode. Really wish they would fix that.

    I have the rhapsody since it carried over from my blackberry, im just not really feeling the lay out. And I wish they could correct a few minor things but since its in beta still i have some hope i'll keep but driving a 6 speed + trying to do a touch screen is not that fun.

    I added shazam so I can tell what is being played on the radio. Which dash cam did you use?

    I had the Sirius app on my Ipod Touch and hated the fact that it would shut off if you didn't touch the screen like every half hour. It would just stop playing and I'd have to walk across the room and touch the screen to get it playing again. Is it the same for the Android app version?

    I'm just using the native camcorder app.

    In the market there is an app called "Car Dock V2". I downloaded it and made it my primary car dock application. Now all 6 of my widgets are user definable.

    I configured Car Dock V2 as follows:

    1. Pandora
    2. Slacker Radio
    3. Google Navigation
    4. Voice Commands
    5. Last.FM
    6. Dialer

    So far I'm a happy camper... got a rock-and-roll channel defined on Pandora and a comedy channel defined on Slacker.

    I have an Evo 4g (2.2). I could not find a way to add an app to car panel. How are you guys doing it.

    Is the "my location" button in standard cardock actually a specific application, or do you have to use navigator, google maps, or latitude instead? I really like "my location's" functionality, and want to keep it.

    The camcorder shuts down when I hit the record button whenever the DX is in the car dock...anyone else have that issue or know if that is a setting that has to be changed?

    I too wish I could replace the preloaded MUSIC setting. I ended up adding 3/Cubed player for the additional slot, but for some strange reason, I can never seem to get it working properly in cardock mode :(

    I also use the camcorder app. I use it more at work. I drive a fire engine and have recorded some cool responses to some of our calls.

    When I used the Car Dock V2 app and set up the contacts or dialer, for some reason it would not put it into landscape mode. I would use this other dock if not for that problem. For now, I have Pandora as my extra app.
