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
For now: Verizon HTC One (M8) and LG G2 White

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
Have you tried this?

One of the reviews posted states that it works with the RAZR.
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.
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.
