    But your thread was very helpful. I may consider mounting my droid in my car.
    Cool, man. Anything to help out us members is a good thing

    I'm not sure, but I have seen VZN roll out products in stelp relative to their demographic. I have no idea why this set does not come with a magnet....The instructions say to hit the steering wheel icon for car dock mode-which is kind of funny. This mod I did is so easy, and cheap I felt it wasn't a big deal to do it, hence the purchase, but I do understand people want this right out of the box. This car dock is much different that the motorola snap in design...

    Here is the UPC: 6----01290--43660------1

    I have the 2 peice verizon case / holster and my phone slides in screen first so there is NO chance I can bump into some thing and scratch my screen

    I don't like the DDC either that sticks out...but since I have a leather case
    and it fits...I can live with it... I may try and make a magnet mount...since there is
    that 3/8's of clearance under the case (between the case and Droid) I could put one there, and one on the plastic piece....It should work.

    As far as my screen being scratched the leather holster protects it.

    Great review. Thanks for the time you put into this review. I still have not gotten a case and will take a look at this one now.

    I've actually got the same Droid Snap-On Hard Cover & Mount Combo kit and I have two complaints:

    -First, when it's attached to my belt, it sticks out way too far with the screen sticking out, meaning it tends to get bumped when I'm doing something as simple as walking through a door way or walking around a tight corner.

    -Second, the hard cover has a thin layer of plastic or tape over it that scratches very easily. I got my first scratch just sitting down in my car and it bumping up against the seat belt latch. Now with random nicks here and there, the whole cover looks like a snake shedding its skin.

    Aside from that, it's a pretty good kit for a pretty good price and it does, in fact, protect the phone very well, just wish the case had a better outer layer so it didn't look so bad.

    The car mount is nice, but unfortunately the way my car is it kind of gets in the way no matter where I suction it.

    Cool bro, right on.
    As long as you're happy, then that's all that really matters

    Yeah, I can see that. I don't use the belt clip at all, and the leather pouch I use protects everything perfectly.

    I haven't noticed any scratches, but if I did have a belt clip...I wouldn't wear it while
    sitting in the car, I've broken/scratched many cases this way...

    Yeah, this case fits great and covers the droid but I wouldn't know of it ruggedness simply because I baby the case, haha.

    My car is also a PITA because the windshield is very far away, and the dash comes out about 18inches, so I have to lean forward to touch the screen.

    I like this case a lot, i hope there is a technique to take off the back part with ease. so i can use it with the multimedia station. Well better designed than the original mount first released

    Just bought the case this afternoon after reading it here . I have the Verizon holster and really liked the fact that the screen was hidden. The new case is nice but I might invest in a better screen protector than the one i got from Verizon. I mounted the dock under the mirror and it looks great. I think I`ll try the mag trick later on. Thanks for the review.

    Thanks for taking the time to post this. I don't dock yet but, when I do, this will come in handy. Thanks again.

    Will the car dock hold the droid without the case? I have no use for the case at all and would never use it. I don't want to have it on just to put it into a mount every time I get into my car.

    Right on, Andy, you're welcome
    I still don't have a screen protector, ha.

    Hey Nick, no problem! I hope you try it out, because the magnet fix and
    ease of use has made GPS navigation easy as pie in my car....

    No...It's in the review, buddy!
    See the negatives...unfortunately the way the Droid "docks"
    is due to the piece that connect to the case...
