    Have had the Maxx for 2 weeks now, upgrading from D1 after 2 yrs. Wife and I took advantage of the BOGO, plus -$50 credit, and free overnight shipping :D. So far phones have been great with no problems. Phones are in Otterbox Defenders. I do have a couple of questions:

    1. Does the phone have the car home page? Haven't found it unless I have overlooked it.


    2. What is a good windshield mount to use with the otterbox defender? Previous D1's we had the Seidio Innotravelers.


    3. Any way to delete all those verizon apps I do not want or am I just stuck with them?


    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    I do not have much insight on the first 2 questions - except that I know there is a "car home" app in the market, maybe you need to install it?

    For the last one - the only way to remove the bloat is to root your device and freeze it so that it is not there...

    I had an otterbox for my Droid X and also my current Charge and my new otterbox case for my Maxx will be here tomorrow. This is the car mount I use and it works great with the otterbox.

    Amazon.com: Arkon Mini Friction Dashboard Mount with Travel Windshield Mount and Mega Grip Holder for iPhone, HTC EVO 4G, HD2, Incredible, DROID X, Galaxy S: Cell Phones & Accessories

    S
    orry I see your asking about a window mount and this is only a dash friction but maybe they also have one for the window. :)

    car mount for maxx + otterbox

    I have a "slip grip" mount - happy with it so far :

    Please Select Your SlipGrip Holder

    That is a "goose neck" style, no cabling.

    I, too, am trying to figure out where they hid the "car home" app - the market shows it as installed, but heck if I can get to it on the phone...

    you can hide the bloatware without rooting. It doesn't remove it but you don't see it and with the battery the little bit they may pull won't make much difference.

    Welcome to the Maxx :)

    Hello, I also just got my Droid Maxx today. I have the same question. How does one go about hiding all of the extras without rooting.

    Thanks.

    I believe it will only open when you connect it to a dock.

    Open the app drawer, press menu and then hide app.

    The proprietary dock will put it in car mode, but so will "Car Mode Control" by IG88 Apps

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/...wsMSwxLDUwMSwibmV0LmN3ZmsuaWc4OC5jYXJtb2RlIl0.

    Car Dock Home by the same folks is pretty cool, too. It is a customizable replacement for the default car mode.

    Using Tasker to control various settings when I put the phone in car mode has been really cool...

    Welcome and enjoy that phone, but please re-frame from starting any ICS threads.
    Just kidding.
