love it works great....Another good option is the mount belowI used it to permanently mount it to the console or you can just clip it to the vent....btw the sprint case/belt clip will work with it. But you have to dremil the usb/hdmi opening to make it fit. Also add a small something to the sides of the cradle to balance the phone. So the big problem of no case fitting is now gone with a few minutes of modification to the case.Since I was able to find a solution about the case I will give it a five starbuy both from sprint and save 25%...

Love the way the dock works. Great power supply with alternative plug for another USB device.I've popped it off the windshield mount and have it attached to a portable Garmin mount that's easier to remove from the dash and hide when parked in the city.I've tried both cases sold by Sprint. First the flexible clear ones, which I stopped using. I'm not using the two-piece case since it's easy to remove it to get the phone in the dock with the insert that holds it in position without the case. With the case on the phone, it just doesn't sit properly, no power to the phone, and the phone doesn't sense the dock (presumably with a low-powered magnet in the case and a sensor in the phone).The insert can come out so the phone can fit WITH a case, but both Sprint provided cases don't work.MOTOROLA, or any other purchaser, if you can let me know for sure of a case that will work where I don't need to remove the phone, please post it here!

First, I have been unable to find a case that works while in the dock. This isn't too big of a concern as the photon is pretty durable/has gorilla glass, but is something to consider.However this dock is excellent. As soon as you plug your phone into it goes into "car mode." In car mode the interface changes so that it displays 6 big buttons. I have mine set up for GPS, Pandora, and quick dialing my wife and parents and voice search. This handsfree way of interacting with the phone is much much safer than messing around with it undocked. It's probably a bit less useful if you have a new car with SYNC or other fancy features, but for those of us with an older model (I drive a 2000 passat that is still going strong) this thing is awesome.I have it set up so the sound is going through my cars speakers (took some doing, but works) and the sound quality is excellent (they recently patched the phone to improve this performance). The mic is also loud enough that...
