    magnetic dock recognition?

    I was able to "hack" ... literally ... my old Droid X2 dock into a RMHD dock (http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ml#post2340414). This is a great bedside solution allowing me to charge my RMHD in the dark without fumbling, wiggling, the small micro-usb jack ... which always seems to be upside down!

    Unfortunately, the RMHD does not have seem to have any sort of magnetic dock detection like the old X2. RMHD cannot automatically know whether or not to go into alarm or car dock modes. As a matter of fact, the RMHD doesn't even have those modes available as part of the stock OS.

    Does anyone know what Motorola's plans are regarding home docks and car cradles and how they will interact with SmartActions?

    I did that the first day I got my phone but that still doesn't give RMHD the ability to recognize which charger it is in. In other words, I want my RMHD to behave differently based on whether it is in my bedside charger (dim alarm clock) or my office charger (Calendar) as well as my car mount (navigation and music).

    The dock I converted from my old X2 had a magnet in the stem which the X2 detected. If the magnet was positive, it would start the alarm dock. If the magnet was negative, it would start the car dock.

    Actually, the RMHD DOES have magnetic dock recognition. I own both the desk and car docks.
    I don't know were the magnet in the car dock is located.
    The desk cradle actually comes with a special "magnetic" charging cord that puts the phone in dock mode. There is no magnet in the desk cradle. You actually need to have the plug connected in the phone, in order to make desk mode work.

    Its not driven by magnet, something about the pins in the head of the charger

    There's a combo package you can find online. I had it and returned it because my phone kept restarting in the car dock

    Before I posted, I actually already performed an "online" search. However, I did not find ANY car mount for RMHD and the home dock I found for the RMHD was just a wobbly stand that came with a cable. Some review claimed the cable was "smart" other reviews claimed the cable was just an ordinary cable. All this ambiguity is why I asked for the links to the products.

    So, the question still remains, can you (or anyone) provide links to these products? Perhaps they don't exist yet because the RMHD is so new?
