It was a tight not perfect fit with the edges of the car dock slightly bent outward and under a bit of stress. It was $39. I decided not to buy it. I'm going to get the Motorola instead.
    The Motorola one won't fit with the silicon case either.

    Maybe something like this:

    O
    r this:
    Amazon.com: Universal Windshield Car Window Mount Dock Suction Cup Holder Cradle for Motorola Droid 3, Photon 4G, TRIUMPH, Electrify 4G, Atrix 2, DROID RAZR, Droid 4, DROID RAZR MAXX (Comes with Suction Phone Holder): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Or this:
    http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Charger-Adapters-SmartPhones-Players/dp/B006GNM88W/ref=sr_1_20?ie=UTF8&qid=1329699896&sr=8-20

    Y
    ou'll need something generic, if you want to keep the case on.

I cannot seem to find it.
    Ya, that would work. ^^^^ Go into settings - wireless and you'll see your bluetooth options.

    One other question. Will the MAXX via bluetooth port over to the speaker phone voice commands when you have a navigation application running? Which bring another question to mine: which navigation application do you favor? Thanks.

    skype for razr in dock

    I'm considering getting one of these. Has anyone tried to use the skype video function while it is in the dock? Just a curiosity if it works. It would essentially be hands free calling with video.

    You'd probably have to back out of, well, not probably, you would have to back out of navigation mode. Then Skype or any other app will work just fine. Instead of pressing the "Home" button, you press the "Back" button until you're at your desktop, then open any application you want from there. For example, I watched the NFL Redzone the entire trip back from North Carolina. Also, I've been known to watch a little Netflix on the way home.

    Unless you install the navigation app, you can't get into Nav mode without the Motorola Dock. It's a separate home screen that looks completely different from your normal home screen. If I think about it, I'll up load a picture tomorrow of it.

    Hmmm. What navigation app might you be referencing? What I currently have installed is Google Maps Navigation (Beta).
    I also posed this question on the Motorola forum: "I plan on purchasing a Motorola car dock for the MAXX. I would also like to purchase a Motorola portable car speaker that supports blue tooth. When I get the phone and the speaker to connect, will it work using a navigation application? In other words, when I have the MAXX in navigation mode will the phone send the verbal instructions about when to turn, etc. to the speaker?"

    The response I got back was: "Yes the naviagation voice will be transmited through the bluetooth speaker, I do this and works great."

    If I think about it, I'll up load a picture tomorrow of it.
    Thing about it.
