I also set up a Smart Action to automatically turn on the Bluetooth and GPS so that both are fully active when i need them for calling or for navigation. It also sets the screen brightness for 100% so that the screen is visible during the day. I still have to work on the night time brightness selection thru the Smart Actions App.
Next time out I'll fasten it to the windshield.
I'll have to try the software you recommended.... in the app store is that "Car Home Ultra" ??

I believe at one time the Magellan units used a ball and socket on their mount and if so it might just fit the OEM mount and give you the height you need. Worth a look at least. I have mine mounted on a custom mount I made up so it is right next to the steering wheel. I can get some picture tomorrow and post them here.

We've always heard that there is no dumb question. Well, I'm a recent refugee from RIM's Blackberry World and new to 'Droid, so here is one: the only way I've loaded new apps is from the app store. If I download a 'Droid app to my desktop, how do I install it on my Droid 4?
Here is a tutorial page on ways to install apps.

Outstanding. Thanks, Shatzy62. Perhaps I became spoiled with all the on-line documentation and books and such during my 4 1/2 years in the Blackberry world, which, alas, is in sad decline. FWISW, I'm most pleased with my Droid 4, and would not go back.
I just ordered the Motorola Vehicle dock/ car kit, it was $35.70, if anyone has this dock please let me know. I'm curious if the suction piece will stay put in my car and actually hold up the phone? thanks!
