His last words to me before I left him today - "get your butt to the shop and get some work done. I'll hold down the fort here!" Gotta love the guy! mikey
Next, I can also confirm that neither the magnets nor DockRunner work on my Incredible either. It is interesting to note that the user manual refers to a "Car Kit Mode" when describing Bluetooth connection, so I assume there is a method to automatically invoke this mode, but can't find any documentation nor application that explains it. The Incredible is still rather "young" so there is hope...
However, there is a free app on the Market which allows you to emulate a dock scenario: Dock Simulator (confirmed running on my Incredible). When I tried it, it ran the built in Car panel when "Car Dock" was selected, but did not find any application that was associated with its "Home Dock" option.

Guess I will just have to create an app that will do it for me.
Oh yea, I have that red and black case and it is not that bad. Though i would prefer solid black i can do with the red to black fade.
Guys - thanks all for the kind words on my Dad!
I kinda thought the Incredible would not work with the Multimedia mode. Can anyone state whether the original HTC Droid did or did not utlitize this feature? Was the Moto Droid the only phone with this capability? I will rethink buying the Incredible myself - I've grown very dependent on the alarm clock. Though I imagine there must be many others available on the Market? Just too lazy to check at the moment!
Anyway - for those with the Moto Droids looking to buy the MIKRADLE EVOLUTION Series - I will install a magnet for those that ask - no problem with this.! mikey
Nice! I'm digging the new design. Really glad I pre-ordered
