    I just purchased my car dock and shell/holster combo. There is a removeable instert in the car dock that states, "For use with Motorola Shadow (remove when using genuine motorola protective case)"

    I thought the use of motorola shadow was weird but it is great that it will fit with some cases on and not have to remove the cases each time. Here is a horrible quality picture of the dock and instert.

    Holy crap, that is awesome. The reason i never got a case for my Droid was because i didn't want to have to take it on and off when using my docks. Will definitely look into this.

    FYI, the case that verizon is selling for the droid x DOES NOT work with the car mount. Guess it is going back.

    I bought this dock and a Motorola case (black leather with kickstand) and it DOES NOT fit even with the removable piece taken out. I returned the car dock.

    I bought the silicone cover and it fits, at least it did in the store. We tried a couple of others in the store including the color ones and nothing else fit.

    I was thinking about getting the car dock for my husband for his birthday since it's supposed to work with the case on it. Tried it out in the store with the shell holster and silicone covers, and it does not fit. Has anyone found this genuine motorola case? I tried looking at the website, but their site is apparently down.

    I just went and tried mine and it did NOT fit. I don't know how the guy in the store got it to fit. I does however look like with a couple of simple mods it may work. I may have to sacrifice mine to find out.

    it doesn't fit with my case either. Thats why I bought a silicone case. They're so easy to remove, pop in the cubby on the door, and then slap it on when im getting out.

    The carbon fiber case also does not fit. I am eagerly anticipating the find of a case that does, that would be awesome.

    Case


    OK, I have the Shell/Holster case, I was going to buy the car dock, but was afraid it would not fit. So your saying by removing that piece it WILL fit. Maybe I should try in the store.

    Shell/Holster

    Okay, I went to Verizon and played around with the Car Mount and my Droid X with the Shell/Holster Combo. Heres what I had to do to make it work. 1st Take out the insert of the car mount, it kinda snaps off, then as you slide your phone in, you'll notice its being held back on the right side of the micro USB connector. Its only a small raised up line, which I simply filed down flush with the rest of the cradle, and my phone then fit. It's really snug, but works well, just for testing reasons I went for a ride with it on some back roads which were bumpy and it remained connected and well in place. NOW IF for some reason later on you plan on not using a case, this modification may make it fit a little sloppy, but the USB should still keep it from going to far. I wish I thought to take pictures of the process to fully explain.

    SO There is a method of making the Car Mount to work without waiting for a revised one to appear on the market. All depends on how much you want it, or how long you want to wait for someone else to come out with one.

    Arcstriker- Thanks for the details. I am going to go to the store and take a look. Has anyone else found a different case that works with the car mount? -Scott

    Update

    **** UPDATE **** I actually ended up filing more on the inner pocket to get it to fit a little more secure. what would happen was it wasn't sitting in the USB as far as it should have been, so by shaving off the inside of the front pocket it allowed the phone to sit better in to the USB port allowing it to charge. Before sometimes it would stop charging, then charge, then stop... so on. It puzzles me that they would make this to use with a case, however, what case? maybe the silicone ones would work with it, but none that have a holster... I mean really who is going to put this monster in their pocket, between the phone and my baby making parts I'd be out of room.

    No Case fits Motorola car mount.

    I contacted Motorola to find a case that fits the Motorola Car Mount. They said the have no idea and to contact my Service Provider (Verizon). Verizon told my they are not aware of ANY case that fits the car mount. However, "a third-party MAY make a case that would fit". They also suggested that I get a "loose fitting" case as it would be easier to take on and off. I tried making the modification mentioned earlier (shave of the nub) but still can't find a case that fits. I tried the Seidio Innocase Active X (I had it previously) and Surface. Neither fit.

    Car Mount

    It really is hard to explain, however mine has been working good since. I use the "Shell/Holster Combo" from Verizon, I use the standard Verizon Car Mount. I removed the "extra piece" like mentioned. then I tried to fit the X in to the slot, and I used a small power grinder and "shaved" down pretty much anywhere the phone would hit until it sat completely in the slot, and the USB connector was all the way in.

    I am VERY suprised by now that no company has come out with a car mount that will allow the use of a case or shell. Do they expect us to remove the case EVERY time we get in and out of the car...

    Sounds good for those that have a Dremel tool. I guess the rest of us are S.O.L.

    Think outside the box... Buy a dremel tool, and if its not something you want hanging around, or don't have money to spend on tools, then return it when your done making the modifications. Just keep all the packaging, and open it real neat like, and save the receipt. Problem solved... Otherwise, wait around for someone to market it one, which by then you will have a new phone with a similar problem. :)
