    I could be wrong, but it looks to me like it's such a tight tolerance, that you might not be able to have a case when you dock it......that's why I made my own

    I agree. The car dock does have a sleeve which slides out. But the verizon case still would not fit in. I was wondering if any of the after market case might fit.

    I tried several cases and never found one that fits the car dock. However, I picked my favorite case and enhanced the dock to make it fit. Grab an screwdriver and a razor blade and get crafty. I ended up taking the back off the housing for the dock and shaving the plastic off the raised top of the usb plug. I also shaved some of the front lip and raised support. In the end it's cosmetically fine and functions perfectly.

    QMADIX Gel. $15 on Amazon. This has been my favorite because it adds very little to the phone size and all the buttons are easy to press. The case is easy to remove but doesn't come off accidentally.
