    Bought the universal mount and kickstand case when I purchased the dx, my thinking was I didnt want to do the switching back and forth removing the hard case every time I wanted to windshield mount. Ok, that was a disaster, less than a week I was ready to ditch the universal mount, hated it! Just receieved the Motorola car mount from Amazon, this in my opinion is the cat's meow!! Works great, looks good, doesn't vibrate, and the charger thing is icing on the cake. I don't care if I ever put the kickstand case back on.

    Is there a thin case out there that will allow the x to fit in the car mount and the stand charger?

    no way ... they fit flush. even the thin rubber otterbox insert is too thick. plus the connections are flush.

    The Motorola mount I have has an insert that you can remove to fit a Droid with a MOTOROLA case on it into.

    At least that's what the salesperson at Verizon told me. I haven't personally tried it, yet.

    You could always just shave it ever so slightly to get it to fit..?

    there is no "motorola" case and absolutely no case fits this dock correctly. if you do decide to "shave" it to fit be sure you get the proper alignment on the microuusb charger otherwise the drag and misalignment will cause premature wear on the port. OR.. take the dock apart and remove the usb plug and just use it as a holder for your phone in the car.
