    Keep in mind the Verizon car dock will only accept a stock DINC2. Add the large battery or use the Otterbox skin and... SOL. That said, I like the Verizon car dock. It's a clever design and well made. And it's not even Chinese but German! Wunderbar nicht wahr? :D

    The dock is nice but talk about a horrible design flaw by having the volume buttons completely engulfed in the actual dock.

    ??? I just leave mine cranked up to 11. :p

    Seriously, you're right, it's not one of the dock's better features. But I haven't had any need to turn the thing down. I just leave volume maxxed and it's all good.

    I went back to this after trying a universal one despite the volume rocker. MikRom Incredibale Sensation Rom has a media volume quick setting in the notification bar, but I have run in to a new issue in that when I set it in the car dock, my ringtone goes quiet. No vibrate or quiet ringer, no ringer. I check the volume sound settings from the settings menu and it's cranked full.

    Just me or anyone else seeing or having this issue?

    It doesn't work with the Otterbox but does it work with the TPU case? Thanks!

    What are you guys using to actually play your music in your car? Is there a micro USB wireless transmitter like they have for iPods? I don't have a USB outlet in my car.

    I just got this from Amazon.com: Mountek CD Slot Mount MT5000-C, Universal Hands Free Car Mount for Cell Phones - 19.95 + shipping = 23.75 in two days!

    I am loving this thing! Woo Hoo! It is extremely stable all the way around. I drive around in a 4x4 truck that drives like a tank and this mount doesn't move. It also has different mounting ideas as well. The holder swivels allowing you to get the best vision possible. You can place your phone in it, in such a way as to not obstruct volume keys or the micro usb plug. It is stable, sturdy and it fits without being in the way:) The clamp style holder is very strong and easy to operate as well. I'm not worried about my phone flying around my truck anymore! I'm a fan!:D
