Questions about car dock screen
I've been looking everywhere for info on this.... maybe you can help.
I'm pretty pumped about 2.1 coming to the Hero. One of the things I'm excited about is the Google Navigation; I'm planning on selling my current Nav system and just using my phone.
So, I'm going to need a car mount. I saw some mounts have a magnet that automatically switch some phones to the car dock screen... I think the Moto droid does this.
Is this something only some Android phones do?... does the Hero do this?.. My wife has the Samsung Moment... Can it do this?
Even if it doesn't automatically switch when I put it into the mount.. Does 2.1 give you the option to manually switch it to the car dock screen?
Sorry about all the questions... I've been wondering these things for awhile.

FYI, FWIW, I have a thread over here that has several links to various car mounts and similar hardware. Not exactly what you were asking, I know.
I was looking for a holster that faced the phone's screen OUT so I could hack it onto my car's console. Never did find anything, so I bought a generic smartphone wallet thing and cut into that. 45 minutes later it was a done deal. It's not great but it'll be good enough for a few months until something better comes out, or for two years until I get a new phone2003 - 2010: Samsung i500 Palm phone (7 yrs!)
