    So I just got my motorola car cradle from verizon wireless, and the little booklet with it mentions an 'audio and car charging cable' and shows a diagram of a cable that's both usb-micro usb, and also has a 3.5mm audio on it. That cable was not included with the car dock. The car dock only came with a normal 3.5mm audio cable.

    I can't find that dual cable on the verizon accessories site, either. Am I missing something here?

    I guess I could plug the car dock in with just a normal usb-micro usb cable, but a single cable would be better.

    I went and bought a lil griffin USB charger thing and its a constant 12v from the car battery. The USB plugs in there and that 3.5 male to male is plugged into that USB coming out of the cradle and goes to my deck (avh-p4200dvd) and works great.

    Perhaps I didn't communicate clearly, or i misunderstood you. I have a car charger, which I can plug into the dock. It will keep my phone charging when it's on the dock.

    But the dock didn't come with a usb cable of any kind. It's supposed to have a special usb cable that also has the 3.5mm headphone jack, right? That way you only have put the phone in the dock, and you don't have to plug anything into the phone directly.

    As it is, if I want to plug my phone's audio into my stereo, I have to plug a regular 3.5 male to male cable into the headphone jack on the phone.
    The dock came with that cable, but no usb cable to plug the dock itself into.

    I thought the whole point of a dock is that you don't have to plug anything into the phone.

    Yeah, that cable is shown in the little booklet that came with the dock, but it didn't come with it. It's not listed in the 'package includes' section on the side of the box...
    Your dock came with it? Where did you buy your dock?

    Just ordered one. Had to call Verizon customer service, since I couldn't find it listed on any website to order one. But they apparently dropped the price. It was $14.99.
