    Yeah, I think they are waiting for the VZW N1 release, but I agree it doesnt make much sense.

    But on a side note, alteast you have your N1...us VZW people are still waiting, ha.

    Anyone know if something like this would work with the Nexus? Cheap easy way to car dock your Droiid - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum Do we think the dock sensors will only be those on the bottom?

    If so, they are going to be pretty useless for those of that have a case or most other forms of protection on the phone. I keep trying to think of some kind of extenders. I guess we will have to wait for the flip up cases to trickle down to the nexus.

    The video with the droid is pretty neat.

    I would be incredibly nervous driving on these *admin edit*** roads with sport suspension and my phone hanging from a magnet.
    My next concern is my phone being attatched to a strong magnet with a sim car, memory and screen.

    I'm more interested in the concept. What in the N1 will put it into navigation mode, the contacts at the bottom, are there magnets in the back. Might we find a diy alternative? Even this one could be modified to have a secondary holder or fail safe in case the magnet gives way. We all have the aversion to placing magnets near electronics, but this seems to be part of the Droid's design. Just curious.

    You either WANT the full featured Google car dock or you don't.
    If you don't, it is hardly difficult to do about anything you want.
    For example using the app 'Settings Profile' I am able to make my phone do about anything I want using a set of inputs.
    Currently as soon as my phone hooks up via bluetooth to my car stereo the phone automatically turns off WiFi, turns the media volume full blast, launches Pandora and starts 'Car Home' application.
    No magnets there! I could simply get a quality holder and be good to go, but Im not satisfied with that setup and thats okay

    Yeah...I prefer to be a pessimist over an optimist. If Im expecting the worst, Im never upset. So when something does happen contrary to my pessimistic view, its even more sweet. However, if Im an optimist and something doesnt happen, im upset...and when it does happen, I dont get as excited because I was expecting it.

    Horrible outlook I know...but it works for me, ha.

    Car Dock - Nexus One Help

    Supposedly its been seen on the site. And, every now and then the google phone page will come up saying the phones are out of stock. Check out the Official Verizon N1 thread for details.
