    I think there could be some improvement done here. (If some of this can be achieved via settings updates, please advise. Or if there is way to suggest features to Verizon/motorola, please let me know where to so.)

    When I am docked/car home mode and answer a call, shouldn't the call automatically use speaker phone (unless bluetooth connected)? Also, in car home, why not be able to answer a call with a button press instead of a slide? Finally, why isn't the phone screen rotated?

    It seems to me, if I am car docked and I need to swipe and switch on speaker phone, the purpose of having a car home is defeated.

    Great idea! One program comes to mind - Power Manager. At this time it does not have the feature to select between speaker or earphone, but you can sure let the author know.

    I was really hoping (assuming, actually) that it would default to speakerphone while in car mode. Why it doesn't is slightly confusing to me. I guess it's for people with BT headsets, which I don't use, so I would really like to have calls default to speaker while in the car.

    this is the same complaint i had earlier. i starred and commented on your request.

    MAKE SURE TO STAR THE BUG if this is important to you, i think Google uses star count as a way of gauging interest.
