    the motorola branded dock holds the phone with no case, which if you *want* to use a case, makes it a PITA to use. I have already dropped my phone twice and have yet to buy a case so I joined the forums to see what everyone is using.

    the case reviewed here looks like a pretty good option if you want a car-dockable case. I don't like how much the "knob" sticks out the back but perhaps I need to see it in person.

    You would want the first released car dock then. It is more of a clip in holder.

    This dock with case is awesome for me, the knob in the back doesnt bother me, and if i use the belt clip, I clip it backwards where my phone is inside my pocket but not sunk and buried.

    I have the same setup for 2 weeks and the outer rubber coating is starting to come off in the corners, similar to what is described above. Mine has been babied and never dropped nor scratched. It has only been in my pocket or hands. I am not pleased with the quality in this regards. Also, this is a comparatively bulky case. The backside of the case where the tab sticks out to mount is especially thick. I believe they did this to reinforce it while in use with either the window mount or belt clip. From what i have seen and read about the Seidio case this is much thicker than the Seidio. I have already ordered a red Seidio case and I will be returning this setup to Verizon before the 30 days is up. When I get the Seidio I will try and add a comparison of the two.

    I just got mine yesterday from the DROID35 sale on vzw.

    First thoughts: MORE impressed than I thought I would be. I am VERY pleased with the quality of the case. I was definitely not expecting it to be this nice since it is, essentially, a car mount kit and not a case. It's not as bulky as the Body Glove, and both retail for $30! But with this, you get the whole mount, as well!

    Drawbacks: having to keep the circular tab connected at all times. Removing the case is actually harder on this than the Body Glove. If you're going to use a case, then keep it on and just deal with the tab. I never use the belt clip (sticks out too far... scratch/bump risk), so I just stick it in my pocket. I don't wear the woman-like skinny jeans, so this is of no concern. Also, I ordered the home docking station, so it looks like I'll be selling that to a friend or someone since the case won't work with it. Maybe I could mod the station somehow... hmmmm...

    Overall: you can't get a better combo for the price. Seidio is a joke with their mount for $50 and their cases that won't fit our phones correctly because of MOTO's fault. Sure, buddy... I returned my Body Glove since a couple of tabs had broken off of it and I no longer needed it. 1 year warranty, kept the receipt, and it more than paid for the mount

    If you've been on the fence about a case/mount, don't be anymore. Buy this.

    I have had that exact setup for over 2 weeks now. I mentioned on another thead that I like the feel of it but the rubberized coating is already starting to peel off on the top portion and it just feels too bulky and heavy with this for me. But it does function well as a quick way to mount on the window with a case.

    I dont know what some of you put your phones through, but since i got mine just about a months use. I had one short drop indoors and the exterior of the case is flawless..no peeling nothing. It may not work with the docking stations but it is actually simple to take off. The back cover comes off easiest is by popping of upper left corner(opposite side of power button) once you get tab off shift case to the right(towards volume control) and it will come right off. the tab never scratches the phone. I leave the front case on and leave the phone raised so it has no clearance issues in docking station.

    What a doofus am I. I posted twice above. My second post above was from me thinking this was a different thread from my prior post. Sorry for that.

    Well, I received my Seidio case about 4 days ago. I must say that overall I really like the Seidio case. It has a similar feel to my previous Moto rubberized case. It is thinner and lighter than the other case, and I like how it feels in my hands a little more than the Moto case. Getting the bottom portion of the Moto case off was ridiculously difficult. I could not believe how tight of a fit that was. I ended up getting a few nicks on my phone from trying to get that off. I got the Seidio in Burgandy and love that color. I also really didn't like having a black cover. Overall I like the Seidio case more than the Moto case w/ windshield/clip mount. The Moto case is good if you want to have a lot of protection for your phone (the bottom portion is especially thick). It is also good for those who want to be able to easily mount it on a clip or the windshield mount.

    I bought the cover/window mount combo at the same time I bought my Droid. I wanted instant GPS and this combo fit the bill. At the time, I did not know car dock existed. A little surfing around this forum and I discoverd that car dock. I whished I had waited, but now you have solved my problem. Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet!
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?
