    Does anyone know how to modify what is launched when the Droid is placed in the dock? Right now when you place the Droid in the dock it launches the dock home which is just the clock app, anyone know where the command is for this and how to modify it?

    Bump, no one has any ideas on this. I think it would be really useful if we have the dock load panadora or whatever app you use while its docked.

    You can use tasker and configure it to load whatever you want upon dock, usb connection, power charge etc. I deleted the car dock and home apk's. Not really related but i also have a profile set up that upon headset connection pops up a menu listing all my audio apps (cubed, tunein radio, beyond pod, and pandora)

    Try alarm clock plus. You can tell it what to start on dock. Haven't tried tasker as I want the clock at night.
