    Nope. Not that I've seen because it's snug.

    Maybe

    I don't know about the otterbox, but I have one of the generic soft plastic cases,
    and it fits fine in the car dock. This case adds about 1 mm around the edges, and
    about 2 mm on the back. The dock has a spacer you take out to create more
    room for phones with a case on.

    There's a spacer. Man. I really should read the directions, lol. OK, hang on. Let me go out and take a look at mine in the car...

    OK, back. The one I bought I still say that the answer's no. Here's a link to the post that I did a few days ago:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr-accessories/187832-best-car-dock.html

    I
    don't have the directions with me, but I don't see a spacer on this model. I'll break out the instructions later today after a nap.

    I didn't see that there is an insert either, until I read that there was one. I've taken
    pics with insert in and out. The insert has a smooth, shiny finish, the base of the
    dock has a duller, textured finish.

    WOW. You have no idea looking at it. Interesting, though I don't think that a Otterbox case would fit in there. I'd see a regular case fitting, though. Thanks for the clarification!

    I have the otterbox commuter and when you take the spacer out, the otterbox fits in the dock perfectly. Just be aware that when in a case the phone can generate a lot of heat and can't dissipate it as quickly. I was on lunch and streaming netflix via 4G and my phone got so hot it shut off, could barely even touch it. Not sure anything bigger than the commuter would fit though.

    I bought the "high gloss silicone cover" (case) for my Razr, and on the box it says it's compatible with the Razr car and home dock.

    The case is nice, it adds very little amount of bulk, and fits snug around phone.
