The dock I have came with just the 3.5 cable that I guess plugs into the phone but with no where to plug it in I don't use it.
    If your car did have Bluetooth you would hear calls through the car speakers. If it had a jack for auxiliary input you can also get the sound through the speakers. If the radio had a cassette deck, there are adapters that convert the audio from the headphone jack to electromagnetic signal and pass it to the head on your cassette deck through a device that looks like a cassette but with a cord coming off and instead of tape, it has a mating head to pass the signal to your car radio. If your car radio head doesn't have an input jack (found on newer radios and on after-market radios), and also doesn't have a cassette deck, and doesn't support Bluetooth, you are left with an FM transmitter as your only option. You can still transmit the signal via FM and use the radio tuner to receive the signal.

    Razor Maxx car dock

Clearly something is going on which sucks for me as I use my phone as my GPS. Coming from a Thunderbolt which I had the car dock for maybe I should have had the car dock in hand before switching device.

    Don't get me wrong I love the Maxx I just need that car dock. In the mean time I will keep looking for it.
    Go to Amazon.com They have one that's even better than the one at the Verizon store. It has the 2-in-1 cable for power and audio.

    This car dock is highly recommended and universal to all Androids, also navigate, search, play music, make and receive calls while driving and charge the Razr. Amazon will have it shipped out by May 18th if purchased today, otherwise I'm sure its a standard day to be shipped.
    I have this dock and love it for the music aspect, but there's a bug in the OS and if the phone is in the dock and using navigation, unless it is playing sound thorough the car stereo, you don't hear the directions.

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.
    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

    Saved me $50 bucks since I just upgraded from the X and had my car dock still.

    Does anyone else have the issue of the phone being too heavy for the dock so the phone tends to start off facing me on trips and eventually if I don't correct it, it'll end up facing the floor.... It seems like the joint at the ball is not as tight as it should be to hold everything in place.

    No, but I have the nut around the cup turned pretty tight onto the threads of the socket. Perhaps you are just not tightening it enough or you are missing the nut. I believe there is a small rubber ring in the back of the socket where the ball fits into which is intended to add friction. If that ring had fallen out, that could allow it to be loose. I believe it can be replaced but may be hard to find the right size.

    Problem with Car Dock and Navigation

    I just got the Motorola car dock for the Razr Maxx and I'm having a problem with the navigation. I first turned on the navigation and put the phone in the dock, it worked great. Then I took the phone out (with navigation still on) and the next time I put the phone in the dock to use the navigation, the navigation screen was completely blacked out. My husband has the same phone and it did the same exact thing. Any ideas on what could be going on?

    same problem with an original razr, only workaround i found is to make sure you exit the navigation before removing the phone from the dock, if you dont the navigation app will stay on with gps on and drain your battery a lot faster, only way i found to turn the app off is rebooting the phone.

    If you go into task manager, can you close navigation that way?
