    Can you view car dock mode w/o a car dock?

    Got some rebate check in the mail (looks like a Discover card) and don't really know what to blow it on so I'm probably gonna get a car dock. Sadly my Seidio Surface Case doesn't fit in the OEM car dock so I'm not going to buy the motorola car dock so I'm just going to get a universal one but having trouble finding a nice looking one that won't interfear when I plug my phone into the car charger.

    My question was is there a way I can view the car dock settings in the phone w/o having it plugged into the OEM car dock.

    Another question can someone help me find a good car dock that'll fit my phone with the case and won't get in the way of my cords.

    Much appreciated

    Also if I can't view the car dock which car dock apps would you recomend. I see Car Dock Home v3, Car Dock Speakerphone, Car Dashboard, Car Mode, Car Dock v2, Car Home Ultra and a few others. Don't really feel like downloading all of them so I'd rather get some opinions.

    After reading a few reviews from the Amazon monkeys I took a chance and ordered this one.

    It looks pretty clean & simple. Was only 4 bucks. I know I know... ghetto... lol

    Yes you can access car dock without docking it into anything.

    The icon was pretty ugly so I made a quick Windows Phone 7 icon I thought I'd share for those who are interested. It's a 1x2.

    Nice work, Eddie.

    Let us know how the dock works out. That's a pretty good price if it stays up.

    I love creative young people that icon is pretty sweet too.

    Oh and I also was wondering if any of you have a way to mount the motorola dock to like an A/C vent? I noticed on the long trip we went on my sons Inspire got pretty hot.

    Not sure if it can be docked to a car vent, they are pretty weighty with the phone docked.
    Have you looked for a way to position it above a vent and direct the vent towards it?
    Personally i think its just a feature of the phone where it gets quite warm in the bottom corner, and there isn't much that can be done about it.
