All the products purchased to day come with very little in the way of instructions. I wish this would change but all manufacturers are having to save money some how so they put all the info on line where you cant find it. Motorola is great about this kind of thing, none of the other manufacturers that have OEM car docks have such a system, you have to remove the cases before inserting your phone into the car dock. this is NOT part of the Smart Actions function it is par of Motorola's Docking Station Function which is totaly separate of smart actions. This function has been around for many years with their smart phones. There are MUCH BETTER car dock applications in the App Store. I like Ultra CarHome the best as it is the most cusomizable out there and is well supported by the author. you are lucky that you got all the [/quote]Wish the one that Verizon was selling came with that cable but in the end i was able to get one from Motorola for free just by complaining. There is not difference between the USB ports on the lighter plug they are connected together on the inside so both provide the same power. How did you test drive go. I personally will not do with out the OEM dock. It just makes it so much easier to use. I also set up a Smart Action to automatically turn on the Bluetooth and GPS so that both are fully active when i need them for calling or for navigation. It also sets the screen brightness for 100% so that the screen is visible during the day. I still have to work on the night time brightness selection thru the Smart Actions App.
