    Any way to take the magnet out of the Car Dock?

    I've been using the Motorola Car Dock for a few weeks now, and realized, I almost never use the main Car Dock screen on the Droid. Short of buying another car mount, is there a way to remove the magnet so I can use the holder without it turn on the car dock mode?

    I did this by taking off the panel with the motorola design on it and just used a small drill bit to drill out the plastic behind the magnet out. Then replaced the front plate and was good to go.

    You can just pry it out without drilling. I removed mine yesterday by taking the cover off the inside. It came out relatively easy.

    This. Just grab the magnet with some pliers and pull it out.

    Just download the app "dock nothingness" and you can select it as default or just select it when you dont want the dock.

    Dock Nothingness for Android - Tools

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    The app dockblocker also overrides the car dock and I never see the car dock screen anymore. No prying and taking anything apart.

    I'll give this app a try. If not, out come the pliers!

    One thought, if I use this app, that means I wouldn't be able to dock in my cradle at home? (e.g. does it override BOTH docking apps, or you can override one but chose not to override the other?) Granted, I don't use the one at home too often...

    Thanks to everyone who answered!

    dockblocker lets you choose which one (or both) you want to block
