    Razr Maxx Car Dock

    I just picked up a new Razr Maxx only to find the car dock is missing in action. What I mean is it's been removed from the Verizon website, 1 to 2 month delay in shipping from Amazon and the inability to check out with it in your cart from Motorola's website. 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.

    I have the car dock and it's not that impressive. You have to remove the case off the phone and even then it doesn't hold the phone very secure. I just got a universal one although it doesn't have a magnet to automatically switch to car dock mode it holds phone very secure with the case on.

    I didn't know the Maxx became activated with a magnet. I got a universal one too even though I don't really like it except it has a really long neck. Now I just got to get that usb cable with the female audio in.

    MAXX doesn't get dock activation with a magnet like earlier Droids. It has circuitry in the USB plug on Motorola docks that tells the phone what type of dock it is.

    Wow, that sucks. I got two of them from Verizon a few weeks ago, but the second one had to be shipped. I had no idea about the 1-2 month wait. I tried using the Razr dock without the insert, but it really doesn't work. Here's why:



    All I can say is keep looking. Have you been to your local Verizon? Sometimes they can get something even if online is sold out.

    I believe they're one and the same.

    Well if they are, they did a bad job cuz my Maxx fell out the other day while driving down the road. My new universal holds the phone very well plus it goes in with the case on, and stays put.

    Shortley after I got my Razr Maxx I wanted a car dock. My phone before the Razr Maxx was a Droid X and I had a car dock for it. In looking that dock over I discovered it could be taken apart. I removed the slide in plastic insert made to fit my Droid X. Then I removed the second plastic insert by taking out the four screws from the back. 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.
