    How does the Official Droid X Car Mount charge the phone?

    I don't have my Droid X and the Car Mount yet. (Droid X is still shipping) But i am thinking of buying the car mount too. It says that the mount "keeps the phone charged."

    Does this mean i don't have to buy the separate car charger? Does the mount come with the charger and i just have to plug it in the car?

    Thanks.

    You will have to use a car charger as it doesn't come with one. It only comes with a 6ft 3.5mm cable to plug into your stereo. The charger plugs into the back of the dock so you don't have to manually plug the phone in separably.

    it doesn't charge the phone, only holds it in place and comes with 3.5 audio jack to connect to car's aux input. you need a separate car charger to charge it.

    Oh wow! The way they advertised it, it sounded like it comes with a built-in charger! Tricky advertisers! Thanks for the answer. Now i know i have to save up more for the charger -.-

    It does charge the phone, but you must first plug a car charger into the back. Once you have this plugged in you won't have to do it again. I actually prefer this because if it was hard wired and had a problem you would have to replace the entire thing rather then a cheap charger. I was plugging both in before I got the dock and find this much easier.

    i was going to buy it but i wasnt sure if i would use it as often as the regular charger. although if you are using it as a navigation it would work out well i think

    aux port to docking station

    Forgive me for my incredibly stupid question but can anyone explain exactly where the aux input port is? I am a complete tech idiot, all I want is for my droid x to be able to play my music and have the navigation work properly. I have a docking station ordered.

    The aux input port allows you to listen to music or phone calls or any audio in general from your phone through your car's speakers.
    But this is assuming your car has an auxiliary port available; old cars tend to not have it.
    It's 3.5 mm so it'll connect from your Droid X to your car port.
    I use that to listen to Pandora radio on my phone as I hate the radio stations: massive commercials and they play the same 15 songs over and over again.

    Thanks, but as I said, I'm pretty dense. The 3.5mm cable obviously connects on one end to the docking station and the other end goes to the audio input. I just have no idea of where the audio input is located. I have a 2006 Ford F250 truck with all the bells and whistles.
