    Can someone explain the car dock to me?

    This thing looks really cook and functional. It has two bottom ends with one containing a USB jack. The instructions indicate that you put the phone on this cradle and a cable, already installed, runs to the power source, and splits off for an audio output as well. I didn't get any such cable, just a standard audio M to M end cable. How is this supposed to work?

    Ok you plug your car phone charger in the back of the car dock, kinda hard to find, but if your looking at the back of the dock, see where there is a space open, there is a mini usb port in there, simply plug in your phone car charger to that and your good to go.

    They give you an adapter for the cradle in case you have a case on your phone in which case you take out the one that you put in if you dont have a case.

    Hope that helps

    With the adapter in place I dont see how you run a power cable to it and connect, nor do I see where the audio cable connects.

    The car charger goes into the back, inside the opening, to the right (Its on the right side of the opening) So your car charger would run behind the car dock, into the open area, then plugged into the right side of the opening. Like I said, at first I couldn't find it either, I did it at the vzw store and went back in and even they couldnt find it at first..

    the USB charger is pretty intuitive, but I cannot find any way to connect audio, except to plug a headphone into the headphone jack pthe standard dock has a USB to headphone jack so that clearly works. Am I missing a cable?

    This would make everything make sense! Ive been feverishly searching for the cable and it's not to be found. VZW told me that the picture wasnt in the manual, but they didnt have one to reference. They dont know what it is or where to get it. Motorola also said they dont have or make it and dont know where to tell you to go. Arep at a local store called around internally with VZW with the same results. He said he remembers seeing something like it for a different phone once, so finding that may be the key. I see noting on Monoprice.

    Any luck finding this one?

    Yeah, that picture is definitely in the manual that came with my Bionic car kit. However, on the outside of the box, it only mentions the 3.5mm Aux Audio Cable in the "Package Includes" list.
    I have CDO. It's like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.
