    I ordered the car and multimedia dock from Verizon's website on Saturday. Unfortunately they emailed me today to say the multimedia dock is out of stock and they don't know when they will be getting them in. I have been calling retailers every day and checking websites since I got the phone on launch day, and have not found the multimedia dock anywhere. I was excited about the overnight shipping from verizon wireless, but it looks like I won't be getting the home dock for a while.

    The link you gave just brought me to the main Verizon wireless page.

    Question how do you get that sort of display to come up on the droid? Do you need the multi-media dock?

    I gave up on (bulky) cases altogether as they prevented me from using my docks.

    I've already painted my DROID (using a very durable Imron mixture) in lieu of using a case, and plan to 'engineer' a quick-release belt clip in the very near future that would allow me to easily detach the clip, leaving the attach point completely flush with the backplate.


    Happy DROIDing​

    One can simulate the Home Dock display with DockRunner from the App Market.


    Happy DROIDing​

    Technically yes. However there is an app called DockRunner that is available in the market or you can use a refrigerator magnet placed on the back of the phone (polarity is important here as one activates the Car mode and the other activates the media dock mode).

    Just checked the Verizon Wireless online store and the Media Dock seems to be in stock. Get them while they are hot.
