    TRUE multimedia dock?

    Does anyone know of a dock that is more than an alarm clock/charger? Maybe one I could stream music on, like a radio? With speaker(s)? Thanks.

    Love the Droid...my first smartphone.. just learning to use it.

    I have actually seen one at a website--- said it would work with the Droid. It had a speaker and charged it at the same time....

    Also charged a Iphone and Ipod---- Wish I coul dfind that link again.

    Yea, that thing isn't worth it. Looking at the specs it just has a 3.5mm input jack. So youd need to plug it in through the headphones. No direct connecting to the droid through usb or what not. Not controlling it through the unit.

    I was going to ask.. Is there any way to listen to streaming music through the dock? Rather than just stored music on the phone? Would be cool to listen to Pandora when I got to sleep

    one solution for the audio in the "multimedia" dock is to just get an A2DP connector, I think they sell them for pretty cheap. The benefit would be you could hook it up to any stereo you wanted, not just whatever speakers come with most multimedia docks. Also you could put your sound system anywhere in your room for optimal audio listening, and save room on your desk or bedside table.

    If you don't have bluetooth normally on, I think you can set a condition in Locale that it turns on when dock mode is activated by the magnet, and off when you remove it. Sweet solution right?

    the dock doesnt need a ipod connector. Says on the website that it'll work with any mp3 player. It also runs on batteries (which I've heard last for quite a while). Its good if anyone needs a portable speaker but requires some DIY work in order to get the mirco usb plug thru.

    It is usually nice when referring to a product or a website you provide a link. I googled this product

    Is that what you are talking about? It is clearly designed with the ipod in mind. I would love to hear about your DIY project to Dock, Charge, and get audio over USB with this, I would be impressed.
