    On the Verizon Accessories website, it shows a bracket covering the MicroUSB jack. Is there a connector there that brings 12V to the phone or is there no way to hook up a power cable?

    Doesn't seem to be magnets, put phone in dock, nothing, until you slide the port in, even half way in nothing happens, must be something with the connector, or possible magnet on the male connector.

    I'm interested in how the droid Razr knows to go into car mode in this dock because I prefer making my own custom car docks. With my OG it was easy to install a magnet into a generic $10 dock. The Razr dock costs $40 which is BS considering it is F-ing plastic. So if I can figure out how the Razr knows to go into car mode I can make my own dock for far less than what the OEM one costs.

    It's not a magnet in the part with the USB connector. I just ran a magnet along my phone where the USB/HDMI/Headphone jack is. Nothing happened. My concern is there is a pcb embedded in the car dock where the usb connector is that sends a special signal to the phone to let it know what kind of dock it is in.

    Yes, it's located along the back (micro-usb not included of course... but they do include a dual male 1/8th jack for audio). My problem is trying to find a good location to mount it.
    *edit*
    My only issue with this mount is its short mounting arm. This is an easy fix if you have the mount from an OGD, just swap the arms. This gives you more ways in which to maneuver the mount to your liking.

    Why not just go on the Verizon site and place an order in for one?

    I have this mounted on my car's windshield. The micro USB plug for the car power adaptor is on the back of the unit. So yes you can run power to it while docked.

    I don't have the RAZR or the dock, but I do have a Bionic and dock, and I suspect they work the same way. There are electronics in the dock that tell the phone it's in a dock, as well as what type of dock it is.
