    Interesting thing is that I was playing around with the Car Dock app and decided to add some Favorite Tel Numbers to that screen you see after hitting the Call Button. I added one favorite and it was fine, however I added a second favorite and the screen closed and now when I click on the Calling button in the Car Dock app it does nothing. I am not even sure if this is something I can reinstall as I can't find it in the Market.

    With Android can you delete an app such as this and reinstall it? I am guessing that would be my fix. I definitely don't want to do a factory reset. Can I somehow delete the data file associated with that app to clean things up. Sorry I have experience with OS but I am new to Android. Just picked up the Droidx when it came out and am really loving it up to this point. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Okay I get to answer my own question. Finally found this in another unrelated post, that shows how to clear the data and it fixed the problem:

    Go into to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Menu(hard key)>Filter>All>CarDock>Then 'Clear Data'

    I went back and and noticed that I can reproduce the problem when entering in a second favorite so it is clearly a bug. Are there places to report bugs such as this????

    I did some more experimenting and the REAL problem was not the second favorite as much as I had an apostrophe in the contact name I was trying to use for the second favorite slot. Once I removed the apostrophe from that contact name the problem went away....
