Here is a link to a car dock option if Motorola doesn't come out with one.
Several different manufactures names with same looking dock, search around if out of stock.

Only thing not sure about is if dock arms will interfere with buttons on phone.
If anyone tries it out post back.

Probably want to get a higher output charger cord than what it comes with to alleviate the discharging faster when in use than it can charge. something with the dame amps as the ac cord comes with.
Stock Turbo ac charger 1.6 amps
Car docks have been coming with around 750ma

That looks nice but I wonder if it will activate "car dock mode"?

I don't think there is a car dock mode yet. Hopefully when Motorola produce a car dock it will get an update enabling it.

I'm hoping for car dock mode as well. I'm still rocking my Bionic because I can charge and play music when in the dock with that sweet Y-cable that came with it. I'm probably getting a Turbo soon, but this alone is holding me back. Anyone have a decent solution to play music in the car right now? I have an Aux In, but didn't want to run multiple cables everywhere to charge and play. I had a Blackberry BT receiver that worked ok, but didn't always connect to phones well. Anyone?

2-3 months later. What are you guys using (if anything) in the car?

I got the ibolt miniPro from amazon Prime. Used it once to hold the phone (in case) while using Navigation. Worked fine.

I use the Qi Infinity Car Charger Dock and the Kinivo BTC450 Bluetooth to aux adapter. I'm very happy with both of them, got them from Amazon. Audio just connects automatically when I turn the car on.

Looking into that Kinivo...my aux is in the center console, so I could finally hide all the wiring. Sweet.

Nope, the buttons are above the wings and the wings hold the phone in well. I don't have to adjust the wings either, I just drop the phone right in. Attached is a pic showing the volume buttons. I highly recommend this if you want a dock in your car, been using it for a few months now.

Yeah, mine too. I have an AC port and aux in my center console so the whole thing is hidden. There is a wired control module you can run to your dash, but I rarely use it because my phone is right in front of me in the dock. I just love the auto connect, a few other models I tried didn't do this.

So does the mic on the phone work also since the Kinivo control module with the mike is hidden away ?

Great question. I actually use a Jawbone for calls, so I haven't given the Kinivo mic a fair shot. I imagine if you plan to use the mic that you could run the control button piece out somewhere where it could pick up your voice. Amazon has a lot of reviews on this that might be more helpful.
