    I'm so glad I remembered this post from earlier.
    When I read it and clicked your link I said right then and there this is going to be for the Note 2......well, low and behold......guess what????
    There's been an update over at XDA regarding the iBolt Note 2 dock and guess what dock it is...........YEP....this one right here they have advertised for the HTC DNA.

    They changed the name and now it's just iBOLT xProDock Kit for Samsung

    iBOLT xProDock Kit for HTC yesterday this dock was $45 now it's $39.95

    iBOLT xProDock Kit for Samsung $39.95

    Click both links you'll see it's the same dock.

    Probably the only thing different with both is the orientation of the charging cable. Most phones I had have the orientation of the charging port opposite (180

    Well, I fixed my setup, since I had the parts from the original mount.

    I'm gonna hold off on the ibolt mount purchase. Just don't feel the need to get this. It's a very nice looking setup, but not quite what I was hoping for.

    And now the Samsung link is inactive! This whole iBolt story is a farse and I hope the company learns from it - I was only one little potential customer but experience tells me their handling of this represents what to expect afterwards.:mad:

    Ill probably wait too, just to confirm that the charging cable will also connect to the auxiliary input. It does say the charging/auxiliary out cable is included. A bit dissappointed but at least I don't have to remove my case now. :)

    So.... Just so I am clear, this one "iBOLT xProDock Kit for Samsung $39.95" will or will not be for the Note II?

    Also as I have never bought this brand before, I am assuming the charge cable isn't hardwired to it so just in case you need a longer cable you can use one.

    The Samsung link worked for me.


    However, it's not due out until Jan 7th according to the site.

    I'm going to buy one....only because it says that it works with the Defender cases. We will see...

    Fits multiple phones...not a custom dock made for your phone.

    Will this work with the Verizon version? How is there a difference in the phone sizes? I like this dock, as it has the charger, and I can get half off.

    Is there another dock that has the charger?

    Thanks.

    Looks like that's for the original Note, not the Note 2. Since the Note 2 is larger it probably won't work.

    This dock sucks. I got it and now returning it. I like how it holds the phone, but it doesn't hold solid to the CD slot on my Acura stereo. It wobbles around and I am afraid to tighten it too much as I don't want to break something inside of my stereo.

    People were waiting for the famed ibolt dock and this is no different. Positive spring load, manually plug in phone cord, works with cases, land scape and portrait. Wish ibolt was a custom dock, but its just another generic dock in a market of generic docks. We need a custom built powered dock for the note. Good find and $22 cheaper.

    Wife got me this:
    KiDiGi Car Mount Cradle with Hands Free DC Charger for Galaxy Note 2 CS2 SGN2 | eBay
    for Christmas. She only paid $40 for it though. Works pretty good either with or without a case which is nice. The charger it comes with is kinda flimsy. It came apart when I tried to unplug it. It may be because of the way my car's upper 12v outlet is designed, it is recessed and the plug is small so there isn't much to grab a hold of when you are unplugging it. Works fine in my lower outlet but that is kind of awkward because the lower mount is inside the center console. I'm still trying to figure out where to mount it where it won't block too much of my view.

    Amen! We just need a custom powered dock working with or without cases which the long promised iBolt is not. GN2 screams Dock Me so it is beyond me why one of the major dock builders does not offer one.:mad:

    Hmmm...that blows. Although I'm kind of surprised because I previously had a droid x and that thing would stick like glue to the tetrax. I looked at the difference in weight between the two and it's only an ounce. Hopefully I don't have that same issue.

    I just got a note 2 and am waiting for the new disc I bought to be shipped. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Will do asap...Its not ideal but the note 2 does fit into my existing note 1 dock.Like I said it charges fine but alas no audio out so I have the cumbersome lead hanging out for audio.
    Personally I would not recommend the expense unless its really cheap.
    This is just a workaround until something of the same spec comes on the market for the note 2. Really do not like having to plug in wires etc... Which is why I was thrilled with my first Note 1 and dock ideal :)
    Yep those folks at marketing always looking for a quick buck..Lol

    Merlin...because of your post, I already ordered one from Samsung's website using my 50% off coupon. The audio out part doesn't bother me because I purchased this from ebay (it was sold out through the samsung website):

    HS3000 Bluetooth Stereo Headset kit, Black

    I originally was using a bluetooth adaptor from ebay, which still worked fine, but this one has 3 different audio level settings built in (so it makes the audio output in the car sound even better) and also has a on/off switch (rather than just a toggle button). On top of that, it's a microUSB charging port, so I can use my existing car charger, rather than the miniUSB charging port on the ebay one.

    Once I get it, I'm going to play around and make it work. Once I've successfully done that, I'll possibly do a video and take some pictures. I just refuse to believe all the folks that were saying it doesn't work.

    Does anyone know if there is a good quality friction mount? I have a friction mount on my Garmin unit and it's just plop on dash board, adjust and go. Best thing is no suction cups, vents, etc to deal with. It's litterally plop on dashboard and go. It's also ball jointed, so it's easy to adjust viewing degrees, etc.
