    The new 2.2 car home is even uglier than the last one, if that is possible.

    How do I disable it without tearing the magnet out of my car dock?

    Thanks.

    Disable it, not exit it.

    There used to be apps that were able to change what happened when you put it in a dock (both of them). Say you wanted pandora to open instead of car home, it would allow that. Something like Locale Dock Condition - Android app on AppBrain <-- but I don't remember it being tied to Locale or Tasker, because I only had Locale for a little bit when it was free. Maybe someone remembers the app if it is still working, although Locale or Tasker should definitely be able to do this especially with a plugin like the one I linked to.
