    Of course I got the notice for it today after I received my iottie car did that I got due to sick of waiting for an official one.
    It's an ibolt. Looked sharp activates features and such with built in charging.
    Its listed under charging.
    Here's a link to the iBolt dock on Verizon's website. It doesn't look half-bad. It even claims to work with an Otterbox case (I would guess they mean the Commuter). I wish it docked to the microUSB connector just by placing in the dock instead of having to insert the connector after placing it in the dock, but I guess we can't always have everything that we want.

    The good thing about the dock is that, in addition to starting car mode automatically, it outputs audio through the microUSB connection and then splits it out to an auxiliary line. This should prevent any problems with echos while on the phone in the car that some people have had by connecting the phone directly with an auxiliary cable. Here's a good shot from this website of the cable it comes with, which is similar the the awesome cable I had with the OEM dock for the RAZR MAXX:

    It's looking better and better the more I look at it. Thanks for the extra info.

    This is what I use, and it works great, I like the universal car mounts since I can use them with any phone out there, Amazon.com: Cellet Cell Phone & PDA Car Mount w/ Charger: Cell Phones & Accessories

    $50 for a car dock that I can never use again with any other phone, no thank you. Plus in NY state and in most states, you can not attach anything to the window of your car that will interfere with your visibility of the road "which I think is a good idea"

    I mount mine to the dash. Gets too cold in winter up here for suction cups.

    Proclip makes the best phone mounts by far. Just got the hardwired charging mount for my S3. it is a bit expensive. But hey all good things are. I have had a proclip for my motorola droid, and htc thunderbolt. They really are awesome. I first got the suction cup mount for my thunderbolt. Half the price of my proclip for it. The suction cup always fell off the windshield every time it was either hot or cold outside. So if you want your new S3 bouncing around your dash then a suction cup mount is for you. You get what you pay for..

    I have been using the Mountek CD car mount for about a month now, and it works great for me. I am actually able to slide it into a groove above the CD player i my car, so it doesn't affect my ability to play cds at all. In my wifes car i have to use the cd slot, which works fine also. Also it will fit just about any phone with or without a case on it. I have the S-line case on my GS3, and my wife has a Rezound. It is nice to be able to set either phone in the mount and use the Navigation function. The mount also rotates sideways for landscape view. No more suction cup marks on the windshield, or broken clips in the AC vents.
