    I've recently found PowerAmp and started using this as my only music player. However, when I enter Car Dock the music button links to the stock music player. How do I / can I change this default so that PowerAmp starts when I press the music button or any of the music controls once I enter the music player in the Car Dock? I've tried other players (Mixzing, Music Mod) and all have the same issue. I also haven't found a substitute Car Dock that I like, so I'd like to keep using the stock one until an update to it comes out.

    Thanks in advance.

    The car dock app in Froyo (or at least the one in Cyanogen Mod 6.0's version of it) allows you to add shortcuts to any app and to rearrange the shortcuts across its 6 screens. I moved the built-in player to the 2nd screen and added MixZing to the first one.

    Moving and deleting apps from the car home is the same drag-and-drop method as for the regular home screens. New app shortcuts are added by tapping on any unused spot.
