    Kinda simple for the price.... but apparently thats what Google likes (desktop dock).

    Like it though! Also, regarding the landscape homescreen/contacts, you can use a replacement launcher like Home++ to make the phone able to flip during the home screen/contacts. OR if you root your phone, you can make it have 360 rotation at all times!
    @NeonMonster I have Home++ but can't find the option to make the contact list flip on rotation from the Car/Home app. Everything else but that app does that. I'm most definitely purchasing the car dock in the near future, so I wanted to make sure I'm not missing an option to change that. Thanks

    Speakers?

    Speakers in the back of the dock? What is the point? Maybe they'd help make the turn by turn directions from the GPS more audible, but there's no way they do do anything but suck for music.

    I think they should have put an FM modulator in there instead. Then you could get all audio from the phone with decent quality and volume for music, hand's free calling, and GPS.

    There are vendors on ebay selling docks that have a similar design for holding the phone (snap-in) but also come with a belt clip so the same dock can also serve as a holster. The price is quite a bit lower, too. I'm waiting for one with an FM modulator...

    I don't know why the contacts won't rotate to landscape. I noticed that when I use navigation and where you enter the address if you select from contacts instead, the list of contacts comes up in the correct orientation. What's the difference? If it can do it there, why not everywhere?

    Clearly you don't realize how crappy the speaker in our N1 is. Turn by turn directions more audible? Not maybe, but more like definitely! I welcome the addition of the extra speakers. Not to mention the hands-free mode when taking a call. When I use my N1 in my car, I can't hear (a thing) coming out of that puny speaker...

    A FM modulator would be nice, but then you would limited to whatever audio is coming from the phone. Now people like myself who use Pandora would love this feature, but I think the majority of users of this phone may prefer the radio.

    I tried plugging my Aux cable from my car audio deck into the plug on the phone. This didn't work for speaker phone, does it work for music?

    Granted, I don't have the car dock; but my N1 worked for both music AND speakerphone when connected by the mini-jack output...

    If you're rooted, Cyanogen Mod supports landscape in Contacts and just about everywhere else. You can even enable 360 degree rotation, to where you could hold your phone "upside down" ( with the trackball at the top ) and it would render "correctly".

    Again, only if you're rooted.

    Bluetooth - same as desktop charger. It would have been cool to have BT go to an FM transmitter to play through the car's audio system.

    Hopefully they will come up with an app for that.
