Car dockAccessories

    After seeing 3800scpowered's car dock on androidcentral I decided to try and do something similar for the dash of my 1999 Rodeo, below are the pics of what I came up with. I used ABS plastic for mine, it's easier for me to get ahold of and work with. I also purchased a car charger, a power port and put it behind the head unit to free up my inverter and power port.

    To start with I had to switch the location of the head unit and the pocket. The hardest part was actually attaching the car dock to the pocket. After this step I simply cut some plastic pieces to fill the gaps of the pocket. Using my Dremel I cut a hole in the top of the pocket to run the charging wire into the back of the dock. I put some "dumb gum" around the connector on cable to hold it in place.

    Then I cut a section of plastic to use as a back plate for support and to put some tabs on to hold it in place.

    Once again thanks to 380scpowered's original idea of using the desktop dock in the car.

    Cool idea. I wish there was a way to have a automatic "cardock" app start up in the car so that it could be used like the droid x when its in the cardock.

    Thanks
