Hey guys. I just received my Droid 4 and I am super excited to really delve into using it.
I wanted to give everyone a heads up about the differences of getting your car dock from Verizon versus getting it from Amazon or Motorola. Beware!
Navigation Mount (Part#: MOTDRD4MNT) vs Vehicle Navigation Dock (Part#: 89538N)
I'm not usually a car dock guy but this one is fantastic. Some info up front is key if you're looking to get it, though. Some of you may already know this but the differences are great between the Verizon packaged and the Motorola packaged units and for me it's worth spending an extra $20 just to save the hassle! Really the only differences come in the cables and charger included. Look here:
What this means if you look closely is that this single cable goes from your charger into the dock. It also branches off to the audio output used in your car. This makes a world of difference if you are using the audio out to your car's audio system! Otherwise you have to plug in the 3.5mm jack every time you cradle.
With the non-Verizon Motorola branded kit you only have to cradle it and all your cables can be static! No plugging! Also the charger is much higher quality.
Of course if you don't use the audio or use Bluetooth for audio then it only comes down to the charger supplied. Either way a great way to keep your phone charged and visible if you're in the car a lot!
