1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I'm looking for an app that will enable bluetooth & GPS whenever I put it in my car cradle and disable them once again when I remove it from the cradle. Does one exist yet? Free FTW!

    Damn, 8 months and no answer.

    I'm looking for the same app for my Droid X

    Try Custom Car Home in the Market, I know it will enable BT and turn off WiFi once started. I'm not sure on GPS though. I leave GPS on all the time, it uses no power unless an app is using it.

    Tasker will do it but it's not free and has a bit of a learning curve. That said, it will do a lot of other things as well.

    +1 for Tasker. Worth every penny and then some.

    I've been using Toggle Settings since shortly after this post. It works great and the only thing it doesn't do is enable GPS. After further research though I didn't much care because unless an app is asking for GPS it's disabled so all my needs are now met via Toggle Settings.

    Setting Profiles (or Setting Profiles Lite if you don't want to pay) will also accomplish this (including GPS). The Lite version lets you set up one rule only -- so if all you want to do is make a profile that's activated in the car dock, it'll work just fine.

    I just pulled the magnet out of my dock then I can select any thing I want when I place it in the dock.
