    I've had the dock for about three months now. Whenever I charge my Droid 1 in the dock it gets fairly warm. Also it seems to charge much slower than if I were using the wall charger. Is all of this normal?

    Also, before Froyo, I seem to remember that the screen displayed the weathter and the time when the phone was in the dock. Now, since Froyo, the a green illuminated clock is displayed after about 5 minutes with no weather display, except when I first place it in the dock. Anyway to change this?

    Motorola has a new headset to be released Oct. 3rd. It is called Oasis. Go to Motorola support to see it's features.

    I'm not asking about a bluetooth headset. I'm asking about the docking station.

    pretty sure he is a spammer.

    anyway, i dont think it getting hot is normal. i charge mine overnight on a dock and when i wake up, it is pretty cool still. SetCPU has it at about 86 degrees in the morning. it i will get hot to the touch when i am streaming pandora or something, but even when listening to my music collection throught the stock music player, while it is docked, it still doesn't get over 95 degrees.

    I also find it just as fast as a wall charger.

    and there is no way to change the dimmer green clock thing that comes up after a few minutes. there are a couple apps out there that do the same thing that dont dim after a period of time. i suggest nightstand Bold...works well and has some nice options.

    Set your CPU profile to a lower speed for charging. I run mine @ 400 when in the dock.
