    CarDock app turning on when phones locked?

    I have a Droid 2, and I noticed this problem soon after I purchased and started using a leather carrying pouch (I used to us a snap on hard cover case and just stuck it in my pocket). I always make sure to lock my phone before putting it back in the pouch and I have a visible pattern unlock as well, but now when I take my phone off I find that the CarDock app is launched! After I hit back/home, it goes right back to the unlock screen. Has this happened to anyone else? Any advice?

    It may be a magnet that is starting the app. Does the case have one?

    Never really thought about the magnets being the issue, but yes it does it's almost like this one:

    Amazon.com: For Motorola DROID, DROID 2/ Devour A555/ CLIQ XT Leather Pouch Case Cover Holster 3GH1A: Cell Phones & Service

    There's two circular magnets attached to the inside of the flap, so it'll close.

    I believe these phones use magnets to start the car dock, my best guess would be that your case is aftermarket and suppose they don't take into account how these phones work and how these apps are triggered.

    Yes it is your case. I went through a few and finally found one that the leather is extra thick so it doesn't effect the magnet on your Droid. Case Logic makes them. I got mine at Target for $20. They are probably at Walmart also. Go there and check them out, slide your phone in and out of them before you buy one.

    Also DockBlocker will allow you to disable the CarDock app while your phone is not plugged in.

    It's in the manual a few times buddy . I'm also surprised no one at VZW advised you not to purchase a case with a magnet.

    This no longer works due to Froyo. I just emailed asking for an update
