Is there a way to use an extended battery in the Bionic and still use the Motorola car dock?
Hi have the same problem. Even after the dock insert is removed the extended battery I have won't fit. However for long drives I just take off the back. Then it fits fine.

The Bionic shell/holster combo that is sold from Verizon is designed to fit either the standard or extended battery. Also, the multimedia dock and car dock are designed to fit the phone with that shell case attached. It isn't the prettiest case, but since it fits into the multimedia dock and the car dock, that is why I used that case when I had a Bionic.
I have shell/holster combo with extended battery and it fits car dock. It also fits my desk dock. It is a tight fit but will fit. It may depend on the size of the extended battery. I bought mine from Verizon a while back.
I solved the issue with the car dock. I bought the Motorola 8X extended battery and discovered that the car dock has a sleeve that comes out. This allows the extended battery with cover to fit in the dock. With the extended battery fully charged I let it sit on the counter overnight and the battery was only down 10%.
