    BUT, when I try to check out, I get a message that they can't ship to my address. Why the heck would that be? I know in Amazon, certain items (like weapons and such) can't be shipped to certain states or cities, but why would there be anything about this item that's restircted? And I'm in Iowa. I'm not aware of any shipping restrictions here on anything. I've ordered many items from Amazon over the years (even just recently) and never been told that something couldn't be shipped to my address.
    I just ordered from Amazon. Amazon.com: iBOLT xProDock Kit for Samsung (9ft USB/aux-out cable ships later): Cell Phones & Accessories When I went to check out it said $4.99 for shipping 3-5 days. So I clicked the 1-3 day option to see how much it would be and it was $0.00 for shipping. Put in my payment info and got "Thank you, your order has been placed." Try again, it might work now.

    Looks like it works now. Even ships to Canada (which it didn't do before)

    interesting.... the real question is... what cable will be included and will they ship the USB/aux-out cable with no additional charges? (if not, doesn't that constitute false advertising?)

    Ibolt just emailed me and explained that everyone would receive the aux/power cable in march even if you got the 10 ' power cable.

    Wait....what? So even though I opted to take the 10ft cable I will still get the aux one as well?

    Two emails from ibolt....

    Steven,

    You most definitely will. We don't have an exact ETA for the cable we just know the end of March sometime but we will have all the packaging labeled and ready to go as soon as we get the cables n.

    Thanks,

    Kim

    Steven,

    All customers that have ordered the Samsung xProDock will receive the aux-out/USB cable that allows for sound from apps (not phone calls) to go directly to the car-stereo. I apologize if we had confusing messaging on this issue... Expected delivery time is 2nd half of March.

    Best regards,

    Mikael - customer service

    ....
    ....so there you have it... we'll see but sounds like they will send them out!

    question... if someone already has a car dock(not iBolt), can't he/she just buy the charging arm and USB/aux cable?

    Well we should compare mail because ibolt sent me something saying very different. Mine says the people who choose the 10 foot cord will have to buy the combo cord separate. Signed by kim.

    This doesn't make sense as the audio out on the phone does send phone calls to an external device. For instance I plug my phone into my car stereo and listen to music, someone calls and the calls also will sound through my car stereo. Are they saying with the split cable we will lose this capability?

    All, we at iBOLT will offer all buyers of the xProDock the 9ft aux-out/USB cable regardless what they received before. We listened and that's what customers want and since everybody (well, most people anyway...) have been very nice about waiting for the improved cable we'll make it simple and offer it to everyone as part of the package. Also, we are working close with our friends here at Android central and hope to have the xProDock for Samsung available here too soon. We encourage everyone to buy from Androidcentral since they do a great job with news, forum's etc and if there's any problems with your iBOLT product we're always a phone call or email away anyway:-)

    chl42, I am back in the thread, sorry about being gone. We've posted in various forums but I must say that we are kind of stunned how incredibly engaged and passionate people has been about this product. I guess the combination of full case compatibility and having one cable for aux-out and charge is very appealing to a lot of people. We are receiving tons of phone calls, emails, Facebook posting, forum postings daily and in due time we try to answer every single email. Thanks for being patient with us everyone!

    Hooray! We're back in business. Placed my order earlier today and by the time I got home from work I already had an e-mail that it was shipped. About it being broken yesterday, one thing I noticed is that today when I went to order it shows $4.49 for shipping. When I tried to order yesterday and it wouldn't let me, there was NO shipping at all listed with the item price. But I do remember from seeing it on Amazon in the past that it did have shipping previously. So yeah, something was messed up with the listing on Amazon yesterday.

    I had also seen in a review on the Amazon listing, this piece of text. A buyer had posted a review complaining about the lack of the combo USB/aux cable, and he had gotten a response from iBolt via e-mail on 2/15, which he then copy & pasted into his review. This is the pertinent section about the cable:

    "The charging cable with integrated aux-out for the audio from applications will indeed be included for everyone that has purchased the xProDock on Amazon from us. We made the decision last week to NOT include this and make it a separate add-on, this as we had feedback from customers saying they don't want it as they have Bluetooth with streaming audio in their car. Also, it will be a lot more expensive to produce then previously planned as we are going full out doing a product that alone could retail for half or more of the value of the car-dock. However, after making the change we experienced negative feedback from our customer base so we reversed the decision and the cable will now be included!"

    Zmann, I know you said you had an e-mail from Kim at iBolt but I can only guess that was weeks ago and they have again since changed their minds due to customer feedback.

    MikaelPe, good to hear from you again, and thank you for confirming the news on the combo cable.

    I certainly don't mean to imply anything here, but this was discussed several times in the other older thread about the 1st generation dock specifically for the S III. (Can't remember for sure if it was ever mentioned previously in this thread or not.) But yes, apparently with the audio aux out through the micro-USB port, it's only app audio and not phone call audio. But according to iBolt, it is a Samsung design issue and not anything that iBolt has any control over. Apparently Samsung decided that when using a dock, they expect it to probably be used with Bluetooth for call audio. (Which works just fine for me, though I understand that it may not be ideal for everyone.)

    Nothing in any one of them emails says if you order now that is the case. Anyone who has ordered already will receive the cable.

    I wonder whether it's the difference between plugging into the headphone jack versus the micro-USB port. If that's the case, then the answer for people who want phone audio through the car stereo is to use the headphone jack instead of the split cable. The catch there, though, might be that if you plug into the headphone jack you can't use the external microphone on the phone - that's how it is with my wife's S3. Does anyone know if that's true with the N2?

    As it is right now my external mic on my note 2 works when using the headphone jack. Having to use the headphone jack is going to suck, the whole reason for want the split cable is to cut down on how many cables I have to use and plugin. Using Bluetooth isn't a good option either, its just one more thing to have to charge etc.

    I stand corrected,, they changed their mind.,,,,, Chris,We have changed the xProDock for Samsung kit once again. Hopefully for the last time until we get those aux/usb cables in. Everyone who has already ordered the xProDock for Samsung from us up until now and will do so before we get the aux/usb in stock will receive the aux/usb cable in the mail. We have discovered that the cable was one of the main reasons people were interested in this dock. So until we get the aux/usb cables in stock the kit comes with the mount, dock, charging arm and a usb to micro usb charging cable with the aux/usb cable in the mail at the end of March. After the end of March when we have the aux/usb cables in stock the kit will come with the dock, mount, charging arm and the aux/usb cable. Hope this makes sense.Kim

    I'm not thrilled with the phone audio not routing through the micro-USB either. For me, it's not that Bluetooth isn't a *good* option, it's that it's not an option at all. I don't own a Bluetooth headset, I don't *want* a Bluetooth headset, and my car doesn't have built-in Bluetooth. The mic on my N2 is great, so why should I need yet another accessory to deal with when I get in the car?

    However, having said that, it's nice to know that I'll be able to use the headphone jack and still use the external mic. I've already got a headphone-to-AUX cable and a charger receptacle wired in beneath my dashboard (currently in use by my GPS, which I will replace with my N2 as soon as I order and receive my xProDock), so for me it's a matter of switching out the charger for the xProDock's charger and running that and the AUX cable up through the existing hole in my dash to the dock. I'll still have to seat the phone into the dock and then plug in the charging arm and the AUX cable (instead of just doing the phone and the arm), but at least given the beneath-dash setup I won't have a lot of cable clutter.

    btw, I highly recommend this setup - it eliminates cable clutter and makes things a lot easier to deal with. I got mine done at Best Buy when I bought the GPS quite a few years ago. It was pretty cheap, and the one time I had any trouble with it, they dealt with it for free. (disclaimer: I don't work for Best Buy - I'm just a happy customer)
