    Problem with Car Dock and Navigation

    I just got the Motorola car dock for the Razr Maxx and I'm having a problem with the navigation. I first turned on the navigation and put the phone in the dock, it worked great. Then I took the phone out (with navigation still on) and the next time I put the phone in the dock to use the navigation, the navigation screen was completely blacked out. My husband has the same phone and it did the same exact thing. Any ideas on what could be going on?

    same problem with an original razr, only workaround i found is to make sure you exit the navigation before removing the phone from the dock, if you dont the navigation app will stay on with gps on and drain your battery a lot faster, only way i found to turn the app off is rebooting the phone.

    If you go into task manager, can you close navigation that way?

    What I did was go into the manage apps and disable the vz navigator because it was very annoying. Another I'm trying to find out is before ics when the phone was in the car cradle and no matter what window you were in when you hit the home button it would send you to car dock window, now after ice you hit the home button and it sends you to your home screen not in dock.

    Love my Razr Maxx and car dock

    Thanks for the tip on the vz navigator. I just disabled it. Can't wait to try it. It was totally annoying.

    I am having the same problem you are on the home screen. I hope they fix it soon. I would like it to stay on the car dock home screen too.

    However, I love my car dock. It works excellent besides the homescreen. I have used it quite a few times as a gps and listened to Pandora. One thing I have been having problems with is adding apps to the car dock home screen. Doesn't always work for me. Can't seem to find instructions on how to either. Is there a manual for the car dock at all?

    Go to Amazon

    You can find the car dock on Amazon.com; it's better than the one at the Verizon store as it has the 2 in 1 cable for power and audio.

    Car dock availability

    I found the car dock at amazon.com. It's better than the one sold at the Verizon store as it has the 2 in 1 cable... both power and audio in one.

    Razr dock disassembly

    I'm trying to open my razr nav dock to modify the circuitry and can't seem to get it open. Does anyone have any tips on how to crack this puppy open without destroying the razr dock?

    Has anyone figured out the home button in car dock mode yet? It is quite annoying to me as well. I can deal with it but would prefer not to.
