    I got my cardock in Allentown PA VZ. A word of warning though. The usb connector that the phone slips into has little nibs that lock it onto the phone. Makes it very difficult to remove without using 2 hands. I ended up using a Dremel and ground them off. Now the phone just slips right in and out without any difficuly at all
    This must be the reason that it seems my TB doesn't sit 100% flat/flush in its dock, and I get power, but no Car Mode. I must need to jam it in there. Or better yet, bust out the Dremel.

    I'd like to do that on my dock in the car (the motorcycle I want to keep it), but what's an easy way to bust out the dremel?

    I picked up the car dock last night. I've not installed it yet but it looks like it will work decently. I just hope it stands up over time because it feels slightly cheap. With only a 1 year warranty on it... *shrugs*

    I have the car mount and was playing with it today. I think it has a few glitches in the exchange yet. At first the Nav wouldn't speak then it started speaking but when a call was placed it didn't automaticly go to speaker phone. When I did activate the speaker phone it the sound went through the [hone not the cars speaker. I'll keep playing with it but it worked so nicely on my D1.

    I like the car dock and the fact that you can plug the charger into the dock, unlike on the OG Droid. I tried to do the surface mount on the dash yesterday and today the car dock went crashing down on me. So, it's back up on the window, which I really don't like. It's too far away for my comfort level (near sighted/bi-focals).

    Anyone have an idea of what I could use to seal that sucker better to my dash?

    For my Garmin, I have it dash mounted, and it came with a circular plastic disk that you attach to the dash with a sticky adhesive, then stick the suction cup on that. Did the car dock come with something like that? Otherwise, you should look for a small circular disk to attach to the dash, then the car dock to the disk.

    Great idea!

    I went looking for the multimedia dock today, but no dice. No one has it. One corporate store even tried telling me the dock doesn't exist and that HTC doesn't make one (and doesn't plan to). I had to take the extra effort to have them look it up in their inventory. I hate how uninformed they can be sometimes.

    I recall the D1 dock being labeled as "multimedia", but all it did was put it into "dock mode" that you could just as easily do with Dock Runner. It didn't really offer anything special, and i'm not positive the new $60 one will either (although I hope there is an HDMI port)

    I also bought both combination desk dock and car dock bundled together in one package @ Costco for my D1 a few months ago. Hope maybe they do the same thing for the TBolt.

    I haven't taken a magnet to the back of the TB yet, but that might be the catalyst to building my own like I did for the D1. I'm sure other alternatives like Mikradle will also be available (and well worth it if there's nothing special about the desk dock).

    Based on the design of the TB, I thought maybe the multimedia dock would come with external speakers and be like an "iDock" at that price point.

    Multimedia dock ...

    Do we know when this will be available? I've searched online and don't see one anywhere.
