    Guys, thanks for the replies.

    To clarify - I was unable to drag down the notification window. The screen was locked on the dockrunner window, and the only option that would open was the weather as I stated. I could not access any other app, or window other than DR. The notification window had initially worked fine for about two days, then the program froze.

    Like I said - I'll reinstall it and try it once more. I did like it for the couple days it did work..

    Has anyone ascertained yet if this new dock has the magnet to automatically put the phone into dock mode?

    This dock wasn't designed for the mulitmedai connection like the first one announced was.

    Hey OP thanks for posting this. This is great, I'll be ordering the dock with the additional battery charger. Now I don't have to keep swapping batteries out to charge.. just swap to use. ..

    dang wish their batteries were cheaper. LOL!

    Got a reply back from these guys(Think Droid) today answering a few questions.

    They said their new dock doesn't work with cases and covers (bummer, but it will after I get it)

    They did say it had the micro USB built into the base that it sits down on to.

    After getting the e-mail I said to heck with it, grabbed a sheet of aluminum, walked over to my bend/cutter.. and after drilling a hole for the magnet, milling a slot for the mico USB to be glued in ... AND then powder coating it Silver Vein Metallic I ended up with this :-)

    If you look close you can see the built in micro USB connector in the brighter pics and the charge LED on it the darker pic. Will work until I buy something better.

    ..and like a million other stands like that. I copied mine from my old Garmin M5 stand.

    I like John's (Droid-John) stand too (better and nicer than mine) and would buy one(or 3) in a heartbeat if it had a built in micro USB connector.

    I would also like to see John add the offical "DROID" or "DROID DOES" logo laser cut into the front of his, that would be cool!! I would guess he is having his stands laser cut or water jetted since he is making them in quanities to sell and adding the logo would maybe add 50 cents to the cutting cost.

    FWIW, you couldn't pay me to make another one, I am way backlogged on the automotive performance products I make and my wife would kill me if I waste shop time again like I did today making that stand :-)

    For anyone looking for a stand like that you can get John's at http://sites.google.com/site/a855stand/ , last I heard he is shipping his first batch this Friday!

    Just purchased one of these at Best Buy in Baton Rouge. Comes with wall charger and 36" usb cable. Seems to work well. Can't use cover but will just take it off at night.

    It is better because you can charge a battery that is not in your Droid. It is worse if you need access to the ear plug.

    Yes - charging while using except in a car has it's advantages.
