    From VZW's website...

    VZW Vehicle mount for Droid

    I thought these apps weren't available on the Droid? Who'd want them anyway with Pandora and Google Nav?

    I don't think they are available. It's probably a mistake.

    I checked around for the vehicle mount and no one seems to have them in stock. Wanted one to use the Google Maps on my trip Friday..:blink:

    You should wait, don't order online unless you know what your getting. The Car Mounts sold by Verizon don't include the rapid charger, but on Moto's site they say thier cor mount includes the rapid charger!!! What gives?

    I got my car mount this morning as part of a package that included the Body Glove case and the multimedia dock. There was no vehicle charger with it.

    However, I have a USB charger in the car and should be able to use the USB cable to top up the charge.

    Are you sure that USB charger will work? I have a USB charger for my previous phone for the computer, and it doesn't fit the Droid. Seems the Droid's USB port isn't a standard mini-USB!!! I hate this, why can't they standardize anything. Has anyone got a standard mini-usb to work with the Droid?

    I'm talking about a charger with a USB connection, not the mini-USB on the phone end.

    Apparently, phone manufacturers are standardizing on the mini so the Droid is the same as the Blackberry phones.

    Ok, I see what your saying, but you are also saying that phone manufacturers are standardizing on the mini, so the droid is the same....how can that be true, when I have a mini-usb cable that doesn't work? Aren't all mini-usb cables the same? Wen you say mini you mean mini-usb right?

    The Droid uses the mini usb. All the ones I have from my BB Storm work just fine. ;)

    Neither the Droid nor the Storm have Mini USB. They both have Micro USB. That IS in fact, a standard.

    Mini USB is on the left, Micro is on the right.
