Has anyone found a wireless car dock w/NFC that would enable "car mode"?

    So one thing that I loved about my Razr Maxx was the car dock and the built in moto app that would recognize when I put it in the car dock, turn on bluetooth, turn on GPS, launch car mode, .....etc etc (using magnets I think). I'd like to find a Qi enabled charger that has an NFC chip installed so the phone will recognize when it's in the car and I guess I also need to find some sort of car dock app as well. I've googled a bit and can't find anything that looks great. I like the looks of the Lyft Vu although it's not available yet and does not appear to have NFC.

    Any suggestions?

    Tap with NFC
    Just tap your phone on the NFC logo to open Car App or any other app on your device.

    You could do this with a simple NFC tag as well.

    Amazon Qi charger around $45.00 and add a NFC tag.
    There are several under different names that apear to be built by the same company.
    I have one of the desk docks and it works well.

    I also came from the RAZR Maxx, still have the navigation dock as it was called. Tradeded the maxx in on turbo . hopefully moto will come out with a nav dock for the turbo. What would you need NFC for going down the road?

    Activate car mode, music player etc. When put in car dock.
    From everything I have heard Motorola has gone away from phone specific car docks, not profitable.
    I wish they would come out with a generic one that would work with all their phones. I like Motorola quality.

    I agree, the custom docks were the bomb however don't hold your breath. Motorola has left that dock and gone out in search of different shores. They now recommend iBolt or other manufacturer's accessories.
