I liked the old dock better
1)it had the cigarret lighter adapter and the cord was long enough to reach it. With this I had to buy a Vzw car charger seperatly and the plug the cord into the USB adapter into it and let the Vzw car charger cord hang in floor as it was the right tip but too think to fit into the plastic of the dock
2) the old docks could remove the base and use a GPS sand weighted base that was movable but the ball of plastic is too small too swap out. So now u had to mount the car dick circle in the car and have to push the sunction cup lever each time I put it on the dash. With the old weighted base you could toss it in the dask and drop your phone in easily since USB was on side not bottom w new droid design you have to click it in. It's a longer process

Thanks for your hard work, Kyle. I also moved from the RAZR to the MAXX and wouldn't be on this site if I wasn't having the same problem with docking in the car. I can follow all your photos, EXCEPT for step one. How did you get the little plate off to get to the screws? I have tried to pry it off with no success. Is there a trick?
As for the plastic nut you have broken, I did the same thing...overtightened in the Florida heat, I guess. I also glued it, but the brittle plastic finally broke again, even tho I was very careful. I too the parts and pieces into my neighborhood hardware store...you know, the one with the dusty shelves. They quickly tried all the nuts they had until they came up with a one inch monster that works just fine. Cost me about 47 cents and 10 minutes. It's not attractive, but it's on the back of the unit and I don't have to look at it. A little black spray paint would go a long way to hiding this. Hope this helps! - norma
