    Modifying Car Dock to Allow Video

    Anyone done it? Should be receiving my car dock today. The video quality on the DROID is pretty awesome for what it is and I'd really like to use it in the car for when I'm futzing around or whatever.

    If no one has done it yet, I'll be doing it soon.

    I had thought about doing it. would just be a little hole to drill, and there doesnt appear to be anything structural there to get in the way.

    I did see an app that records and hold the last 60 seconds of your driving, and saves it upon key press. Says only works on 1.5 though, havent tried to see what it does on 2.0

    records and holds? so like, it buffers that 60s while you're driving and then stops recording when you stop, in case you're in an accident, type thing? that woud be interesting.

    i'm mostly interested in the video while driving capability for this

    yup, buffers the last 60s until you press the save button. apparently it also uploads directly to youtube (not sure if thats optional, would hope so.)

    now what would make that app impressive, is if it would kick off automatically, whenever docked and run in the background while the navigation app remains on top.

    Modified mine for Video/Camera usage today too, also modified the Car dock to work with my Verizon Shell/Case. Haven't done the clean up either but it works perfectly!

    Can you post pictures of the mod you made to work with the shell?

    Hmm... Says the paid version captures 600 seconds, but I can't find the paid version on the market. Maybe an upgrade link in the app. 600 seconds is enough to give you a chance to wake up from the shock from the airbag and stop the recording before you lose the data.

    Would be cool if it would use the accelerometer and if it detects a sudden deceleration of > 2 G's pop up a box asking if you want to stop the recording, and stop it 30 seconds later if you don't respond (need to verify 2G's is the appropriate setting. Has to be more than you would get from hard acceleration, but maybe should trigger from really hard braking. Should be able to adjust to your driving style).
