    Anyone know how to turn off the car dock software?

    In other words, when I put my droid in the car dock, I would rather the phone NOT automatically fire up the car dock navigation, but just leave it on the screen it was at...

    Anyone have any ideas on how to turn that behavior off?

    Rooting (even with the SholesMod Updater) lets you do this, but I, too, would be interested in hearing how to prevent this without rooting.

    I wanted to do this for a long time myself and never heard of a way to disable it. Now that I rooted last night with Sholes, it was an option, so maybe rooting is the only way.

    Is there a way to set it to AutoKill somehow? I don't feel like paying a buck for this but I also would like it gone. I plan to root this week so it's not worth the buck for me.

    Cardock is an alternative car home app that works for me. Car home still runs in the background but when pressing the home key cardock runs. It let's you have what ever icons you want on the screen. Also its got a nifty screen saver feature where you can have a widget dance around the screen.

    I rooted my phone a while back & chose to not even install. Problem solved & works flawlessly.

    For me it's the other way around, I need the magnet to trigger car mode so that I can have apps enable/disable my bluetooth but don't want the stupid car mode screen to come on. So when I rooted I uninstalled the stupid car mode and I'm all good now. :icon_ banana:
