    The Droid 3 dock fits the Droid 4, I don't use a case, but I don't see why it shouldn't work with a case that is relatively slim. Can take pictures if anyone wants it. It doesn't slide as easy into the dock but it's still pretty nice and enables dock mode properly. \

    The Motorola Droid 3 Desk Dock is less than $20 on Amazon.

    I picked up an aftermarket D4 dock off ebay. It sucks. The USB connector is even tighter than the one on the official moto unit. Making it even more tedious to disconnect it from the the dock. That and it doesn't enable dock mode (but this was expected).

    I bought similar and found this...

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.redsulfur.razrdock&feature=nav_resu lt#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDNd

    I
    nstall that, setup a Smart Actions for (trigger) "charging, wall adapter" and run (action) "launch application" the Razr Dock ap.. When you drop the Droid 4 on the dock it will fire up the dock mode (bedside mode). It's easier to get on / off than the official dock because that uses both the HDMI and USB connection.

    Yeah, the dock mode triggering isn't the issue, it's the USB connection. The factory dock is a bit too tight and there's no guidance on dropping the unit into it. So you have to put more effort into lining it up properly and pushing it down on to the connection. Then you have the hold the dock and pull the phone back up off the dock. This SUCKS compared to the previous D1-3 docks. Those made it a lot easier to use the dock.

    The aftermarket unit I picked up is even WORSE. It has the ability to line the phone up better, but the USB connector is even tighter than the factory plug.
