    Can car dock mode be disabled?

    As title says can car dock mode be disabled? So that it doesn't automatically go into car dock mode when inserted in to the dock.

    If it can, I haven't found it. I have heard some say that they don't get the option. All you have to do is push the back arrow and it'll take you back to your home screen. I do it all the time watching football in the car

    Pressing the back arrow is not the same as having the mode disabled. It does exit the dock mode temporarily but the phone is still in "dock mode" as indicated by the car dock icon in the status bar. I had a Droid X before the Razr and used my phone to provide the media for my car audio system through my car's USB port. Apparently the dock mode on the Razr disables media transfer through USB. I can still use my phone for its music in my car but I have to plug it in directly, bypassing the dock. This is not the way it worked on my old Droid phone.

    If someone has any instructions on how to modify the car dock so it does not trigger the phone to enter dock mode, I would appreciate it. I like the look of the dock and, of course, it fits the phone much better than other generic car docks. Unfortunately, not being able to sync the media on my phone with my car is a deal breaker for me

    Thanks

    its not a problem with the actual car dock app, its the mode the phone goes into when put in the car dock. When that car dock icon is showing in the notification bar the phone does not allow any data connections via the USB port. Even if I exit the car dock app the phone is still in that mode.

    If I can disable the built-in car dock mode I might look at other docks to replace it but until then I would be happy with NO dock app. I just need to be able to use the USB port while the phone is docked for something other than jsut charging the phone.

    oooh I am reading the app now and I was a bit hasty in my reply. I will try that and let you know

    ok I installed it and it seems to work (if the car dock icon is any indication). I am in the office and will test this when I get back into my car.

    Nothing in Smart Actions to override the car dock? My Bionic had car and home docks listed separately if i recall. If you are rooted, you probably could freeze car dock. Think the apk is readily accessible via TiBu or the like, if not, then in the system/app folder it could be bak'd

    Freezing or renaming shouldn't affect anything else.

    I can definitely set a "trigger" for when it gets put in the dock but no action to take that would prevent the dock mode.

    I think that "DockNothing" app will do what I need but won't be able to verify until I get back down to my car. From my desk it appears to work though and I am optimistic.
