    The multimedia dock is an exact form factor for the Droid. In other words, you can't use it with a case on it. I know Seido makes a decent Multimedia dock that works with their case.

    Right. So any snap-on case is out. That's why I'm wondering what kinds of cases people are using for easy access to the dock and car mount.

    I don't know if I should go with a Monaco or PDAir metal case and just use the belt clip.

    I don't like going without a case. It's been too many months and I feel like I'm tempting fate. :)

    I keep my Droid in my shirt pocket, but it's so heavy. It sags my shirt down like an old-lady boob.

    I use the Verizon Leather Side Pouch. Makes it where I have SOME protection, but I just slide it out of that at night to drop into the dock.

    No! Snap covers are NOT OUT! You can use any Snap Cover on a MIKRADLE (custom snap model for this use)!

    You have hit on exactly why I returned my Moto Dock one week after purchasing it! I use the VZW Gel Cover (similar to the Body Glove) and was exasperated with having to constantly remove it. At the time - there were NO alternatives - nothing offered that would work with a cover. Hence I went to work and began manufacturing MIKRADLE - which will accommodate ALL covers - no exceptions! I found myself in plenty of company - once I started marketing these the orders flooded in! If you've been following the threads here on the forums - no doubt you've heard the word many times.

    I'm just too nervous to use my Droid without a cover. I find it's not worth the risk - so MIKRADLE has made it possible to take my choice of any cover I wished for. I will say that I've tried a few - but keep coming back to the Gel Cover. Not that there is anything wrong with most of the others out there - just my personal choice. I use it about 80% of the time. With warm weather coming up, and no large jacket pockets to carry it in, I'll be started to use a leather cover with a belt clip I purchased - I don't like old lady boobs! :icon_ banana:

    I am thinking about the Combo Mount offered by VZW - for the summer that might be my answer for a belt clip. I'm on the fence here - I've never been keen on hard shell covers before. But for sure I've got to come up with something in a belt clip - no way will I try to carry it in my pocket while in just tees and shorts (my usual summer attire while working in my custom wood shop).

    If you are interested in MIKRADLE - you can view my threads here on the Source - there are several of them - just type MIKRADLE in the Search box on the top of your screen. Or you can start here: MIKRADLE - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    I am a Supporting Vendor here on the site - and can answer any MIKRADLE questions you might have! The photo in my signature is the Classic Black Series. There you can see the Gel Cover on while charging. See my Gallery for more photos. :) mike

    When and if I start using my belt clip leather pouch - my Droid will also be a nudist :icon_ devil: during use when not hiding in the pouch!

    You know - if anyone doing a google search with the word "nudist" lands here on the forums - they are going to think we are nuts! :icon_ banana:

    I've spent a ton of time here on the forums - and I'm amazed at the rapport Droid owners have with their phones! Most speak of it almost as a child, a pet etc.! I'm very close to mine - I'll bet like most married men the droid gets more attention than the wife! ;) Yikes! Hope she doesn't follow these threads! :blink:

    Perhaps we should start a new poll on the most popular cover used - it would probably make for a very interesting thread! :) mike

    If you put one of the Invisible skin products on your Droid it will fit in the form fitting docks.

    I use the VZ Shell/Holster combo. It's easy to remove and install, so I just take it off when I dock my Droid.
