    Navigation Car dock... is there more than one kind?

    I'm not completely stupid, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how my Bionic gets power through my car dock. The instructions talk about a micro-usb/audio cable, but mine just came with an audio cable.

    If there's more than one kind, it would have been nice if the Verizon rep had told me there was two different kinds, but he probably didn't know either.

    Am I at least partially stupid, or did I just buy the wrong one? Anyone know before I trudge all the way back to the Verizon store and look like an idiot because I couldn't figure it out?

    BTW - this is the Droid Bionic Vehicle Navigation Dock. Can't find any model # on the box tho...

    Pretty sure the car mount that VZW sells does NOT come with the car charger.. which sucks.
    Going to check Best Buy tomorrow and see if theirs does.. it did for the X and the D1

    But... the instructions mention attaching the micro-usb/audio cable to the "car dock". ?? What's going on here?

    I mean, when the phone is in the dock, the usb socket sits on a micro-usb connector, but there's no where to attach a micro-usb cord to it.

    Am I being uber-retarded?

    if there were a charger in the kit you would connect the MicroUSB cable to a port on the charger.. thus eliminating the need to plug the phone into the charger itself everytime you docked it. they basically built the charging mechinisim into the mount.

    Ok, I can handle that, but I still don't see where the charger would attach to the dock... there's no socket... just an blank cut out in the plastic where it should go... unless it's some kind of induction charger setup.

    This is the back of the car dock... is the port under the foil? Because otherwise, I don't see any connector for a micro-usb cable.

    On the side of that cutout. Across from the round part. The cord goes though the round cut out and plugs into the port on the opposite side.
