Anyone have any info, or have seen any articles about a release date? I want to use my GPS!
I don't know...but i'd be happy if they would finally release a car charger. Amazing to me that they have a phone that can be very battery hungry and no car charger.
I would imagine a official car charger would be released with the car dock..but can't you buy one that has the same input such as this?
Amazon.com: Motorola P513 Vehicle Power Adapter MicroUSB Rapid Rate Charger: Cell Phones & Service
Yes, but i'd prefer an official car charger. I've heard horror stories about the eBay/non-branded chargers.
That isn't eBay and its made by Motorola.
I bought that exact car charger, works great. The Nexus One uses microusb to charge, you don't need any official charger. Does HTC even have their own branded chargers?
Good to know thanks.
Would the Motorola Droid car dock work with the Nexus One? I think their the same size? All I need is something to hold my phone up by the vents or windshield..
Does GPS come through if you have it down by the shifter in the center console?
Cool! Thanks guys!
I bought a car charger at best buy. It works great.
And I bet you overpaid by ALOT.
Is anybody here even using the Nexus One for GPS in their car? If you are..how are you keeping the phone up on the dash so you can see it while driving?
Is there even any non branded Nexus One car docks out there to buy?
I bet he paid less than a branded dock.
Also: Let me google that for you
There's tons of generic mounts.
Proclip even has 3 for the Nexus One.
How you going to compare a car charger to the desktop dock? They are 2 completey different products.
I bet he paid every bit of $35 or so, the one I linked to Amazon has a total of $7.25.
As far as your "Let me Google that for you" way to be a smart ass, not every car dock is going to fit the Nexus One. If any at all.
Any micro usb car charger will work. True there are better quality chargers than others but they all basically do the same job. Just because it's officil doesn't mean it will be free of issues.
I wasn't referring to the desktop dock.
Again... I bet he didn't.
Again... Proclip has 3 for the Nexus One.
So far I haven't used the gps to go more than 10 miles. I don't have a car charger; I'm waiting on the car dock as well.
I was just looking at that..so I need to buy the car mount + the holder? lol that's like $65 bucks
What's your problem? You asked a question.
I answered it. There is.
Someone else mentions generic car charger and you complain that it costs too much. (which it turns out it doesn't)
I'm sorry I couldn't find you a custom made car dock with your name engraved on it for free.
$65 is a good price to you for a car dock? Please..whatever you are smoking on pass me some.
The branded Motorola Droid car dock is only $29.99, yet this off brand company wants $65? Please.
And as far as your Best Buy link..those are all $25+ not including TAX.
Going by the phone experience thusfar, i'd have to agree with you 100%
I bought a Rocketfish one from Best Buy and it works great as well. The coiled power cable is really high quality. Also, you get a peak at the car dock in this Nexus One Documentary
And the one I got from Best buy was 21.99
You have a link to the one you bought from Best Buy?
I got a handy USB charging kit for Xmas, gives me a useful spare and a car charger that seems to do the job.
Made by Mountech whoever that may be.
Micro-USB car charger at Target for $14.95. Works like a champ. Use the Nav (while waiting for the official dock) by sticking it in an unused cup holder and having it talk to me. Not quite champ-like but acceptable for now. I've compared it, in action, with my car's standard GPS. I probably won't get a GPS next car (unless I have to to get BlueTooth or a good sound system).
Anyone see the picture of Googles Nexus One car dock spotted in one of their videos? It looks slapped together and UGLY.
What about people that DON'T have a flat surface on their dash and don't want it on their windshield? :/ Hell..it looks to short to even have it on your windshield anyway.
Wow..that's *** this website doesn't support pictures or even clickable links?
Bumping for Google! Can we please get the car dock released?? I'm tired of using Google Navigator with the Nexus One on my lap!
