    No, they are not one in the same. The Razr dock has an insert that you can take out and put your Maxx in it, but the Maxx will not fit snug and it will fall out while you're driving down the road. You have to buy the car dock that is made for the Maxx. I know, because I had to replace both of my Razr car docks with the Maxx car dock.

    Unfortunately the Max will not fit in the RAZR dock without a skin but with a skin and some persuasion it dis fit. I just tried it. I'm not happy with the amount of persuasion I had to apply but it dis work. The dock has a recess that is for the RAZR and unfortunately that bump on the RAZR is now flat on the Max. I too need the car dock because I am killing the battery quite quickly on my Max.

    There are several different car docks for these guys available here: Amazon.com: droid
    Everything from the Moto one to a few other off brands, but might be worth taking a look considering the different price points.

After removing the second plastic insert I was able to see and remove the electrical cable and contacts that were for my Droid X. I then reassembled the dock but with out the original slid in plastic insert. My Razr Maxx fits perfect into the altered dock. If I need to have power I simply plug my car charging cable that came with my Droid X car dock and it works fine. Save yourself some money and pick one up on eBay for between $12-15.
    i did the same thing to my old Droid X dock. I added some rubber padding to it help secure the phone. I can take pics if anyone is interested,

    I am in the middle of using my old DX dock and an extra Razr dock to make one dock. Both docks come apart pretty easily. The USB plug that is originally in the DX dock simply pops out of the unit. You can then take the board and wires out of the Razr dock and using the cord that you removed from the X dock, you can use it to plug into the board from the Razr dock and use it as an extension cable back to the back of the X dock. Now take the board from the Razr and it fits snugly, without any modifications, to the inside of the X dock. I was able to just push it in place and friction will hold it in place.

    This is the point I am at right now. Next I will have to drill a hole in the side of the X dock for the wires to come out from the Razr circuit board. After that I will cut the back of the Razr dock where the USB slider is, down so that it will line up with the port on the Droid Maxx while it is in the dock. I will still have to come up with a way to attach the sliding mechanism from the Razr dock to the X dock, but once I do that than I will have a working dock, including the USB slider, for my Droid Maxx.

    This is what it looks like so far. This is the back of the X dock with the circuit board and slider from the Razr dock inserted in it.

    I will probably not be til next weekend before I finish this project, but I won't have a need for it for another 2 weeks or so. That is when I will be activating my Maxx. I am currently using my X2 until it is updated. Supposedly, there is one coming. Before I sell the phone to my son, I want to make sure that it is working good.

    This has been an interesting project so far. I only have about an hour into it right now. I can't see it taking more than another hour or two to finish. I am just slow on my projects. It is easy to start one, but hard to finish.

    Razr Maxx
    #16
    Hi All,
    I just got my Maxx...actually it will be arriving on Wed...anyway the store sold me the Razr Essentials Toolbox kit but now I am worried this will not work with my Maxx. The kit comes with the HD Station and the car dock. From what I am reading here the Maxx does not fit in this dock? I am mainly concerned with whether it will fit with a case on. I am getting a silicon case. I don't want to have to remove it from the case every time I get in the car. So can anyone tell me, if this dock does not work, will the car dock made specifically for the Maxx allow docking with a case?
    Also from what I read at Motorola the HD dock is compatible with both the Razr and the Maxx...does anyone have experience with it? Sorry to ask this many questions but I want to get the right accessories for my new baby. Thanks for your help

    The RAZR essentials is basically that it is meant for the RAZR not the Maxx. Another dissapointment to you will be they the dedicated Maxx car cradle you have to remove the silicone case off the phone for it to fit in the cradle. I am facing this dilemma right now. The HD cradle I believe is the same situation too.

    Yes, they did not take into consideration cases, when they made the Razr Maxx docks. No idea why. It's a pretty big mistake considering that they did make the Razr docks fit with cases. Currently there are no docks that fit the Maxx if the Maxx has a case of any type on.

    Which universal one did you guy that works with your Maxx with the case on? I have the Ottorbox Commuter and don't want to take it off whenever I want to use the dock.

    The two phones, razor and razor maxx us different car docks. The Maxx needs a specific Maxx car dock.
