    Getting Vehicle Dock today for car

    So, hubby got me a new car stereo for our anniversary and it's getting installed today! I went and got the Dock for the car and should be all set up by this afternoon.

    I have a few questions though---sicking it in the window...does it really heat up the phone? I have a hard silicon case for it right now (with all the flashing and crap I need a case that can allow me easy access to the battery) and that alone seems to heat it up, and that concerns me. Also, the "window holder"...does it really hold well? All other window holder's I've had either fall down constantly and become weak and break, so while driving the phone falls from the windshield and gets under the seats...kinda a mess for driving. Has anyone had this issue? Should I just stick it to the dash?

    The radio that's being put in also has a bluetooth. Once I pair with the blue tooth is the phone going to remember it?

    I think that's about it! I can't wait!

    The phone does heat up quite a bit if driving in the hot sun, but so far it hasn't overheated my phone even when ive been using navigation, music and Torque applications.

    Sticking it to the window holds very well. I haven't had to adjust mine or re-stick it to the window at all. And the phone has not fallen out once, but i don't have a case on it, so my experience is limited to that.

    And yes, it should remember your bluetooth. Good luck!

    I haven't had any problems with heat or staying put either. We'll see how it does when the weather gets really hot in Atlanta, though...that's the real test of a suction cup holder here.

    I'll be watching this post to decide if I want to get the vehicle dock too. Does it come with the charger? I don't care about the aux cable because my stereo doesn't have one, but I can play through my motorokr T505...

    Mine came with a dual output USB charger, though some have reported that theirs didn't.

    I just found out they are on sale at AT&T's website... 25% off. I ordered mine for $32 with free two day shipping and tax included.

    They come with the USB plug, but you either need a USB port in your stereo (to charge) or a cigarette adaptor with a USB hole to plug it into.

    Weird...because mine came with a lighter adapter with two USB ports, as well as the cord!
