    CAR DOCK REPLACEMENT

    I just got a car dock and I HATE the default screen that comes up with the 5 basic icons (see pic). I especially hate the fact that on this default screen, it is NOT the regular navigation, it is the Verizon Navigation powered by BING. WHY THE HELL WOULD I WANT ANYTHING POWERED BY BING, YICK.

    So I am looking for a dock replacement, preferably one that comes up on its own, but if I have to launch it myself that is OK. One that has customizable buttons. And maybe built in Weather, Time and compass. I did find Car Home Ultra https://market.android.com/details?id=spinninghead.carhome, but it is a 30 day trial and it would cost $1.99.

    SYSTEM USAGE TRACKING WIDGET

    I am looking for an app to track my minutes used, Texts sent, & Data used. Just want something that I can use to keep track of my usage.

    I have My Data Manager Free https://market.android.com/details?id=com.mobidia.android.mdm and that keeps track of my Data usage. I also have PhoneUsage https://market.android.com/details?id=com.jupiterapps.phoneusage, and it tracks all 3 items, but no widgets, to get the widgets, I would have to get the pro version for $1.66.


    So needless to say I am looking for free versions of these apps. Any assistance would be appreciated. thanks

    My Verizon Mobile does that latter.
