    Thumbs down VZW's Car dock has NO 3 pin connection.?

    So the Verizon version of the nexus car dock has NO 3 pin connector!?

    This is like going backwards from my motorola droid x car dock, This sucks.

    There has GOT to be a dock out soon with this feature or hopefully the gsm version will work..
    Verizon just tweaked my Melon dude....

    Just means you'll have to stick the microUSB cord into it.

    Effing bait and switch BS! Makes it an easier decision for me to just keep using my universal cupholder mount and obviously wouldn't work with an Otterbox.

    I wouldn't count on it, the LTE version is thicker and most likely won't fit into the GSM mount

    On XDA people with the GSM version fits in the VZW car dock, so I would think it works the other way around too. The cases are supposed to be universal too. 0.5mm isn't that big of a difference.

    What is the point of the three pins???? I mean, they put them on the phone, are they not going to make any accessories for it?

    I'm sure the LTE version fits into the GSM one. Wait a week and find out from one of our more adventurous posters.

    Do you think it would still fit even with the extended battery?

    Probably so they can sell 2 versions of it and make more money off the customer.

    I bought the navigation dock and I'm taking it back, I want the dock with the three pin connectors.

    Sorry if this is stupid, but what is a 3 pin connector? Why is not having it bad?

    Whether they are selling the GSM or LTE versions, they are selling the same number of units... so that doesn't really factor in.
    Telling a member to "search" is not the answer to a question.

    So who is selling the GSM version? Anybody have any links?

    No I mean the dock. Sell everyone the regular dock then introduced the one that charges the phone as a premium dock

    Tag for info. I'd buy one as long as I could return it if it didn't fit. Only worry would be if the GSM version was only available to purchase from overseas.

    I'm sure it's only sold overseas at this time, but I would be really to bet my money against it that LTE one will fit. Not sure I will ever get one anyway, I have never used any kind of phone dock before. But would still like the option.

    I do know that VZ's Casio G'zone Commando has the 3 pin connector.

    I used to have a forum signature... then I took an arrow to the knee.

    The model with 3 pins is ECS-K1F2BEGSTD and I think it's only available in Europe now. In fact, I don't think it's actually come out yet because every European site I check says it's backordered.

    Correct.

    You'll just have to put that stress on the microUSB port. Especially in landscape mode where it sticks out sideways.

    And you'll have to do without Vehicle Home. Because this piece of crap dock doesn't trigger it.

    And most of the time you'll just have to do without Face Unlock or landscape mode, because when I put my VZW galaxy nexus into this piece of crap, it didn't even detect a rotation on the accelerometer.

    Returned 2 hours later. Total fail.

    I'm also looking for a dock that has built in charging. I have to admit, I'm spoiled with my D3 car dock. Not only does it have built in charging, car mode auto activation, but it also is compatible with my VZW holster/phone case. It's a damned good product.

    I was so excited to get the charging car dock. I had never used a car dock before since I always felt my screen was too small. But now with the Nexus I think it could work....But of course we get screwed with a crappy dock. Really need someone to try that GSM version to see if it works :-)

    The one Verizon has pictured on their site definitely shows the version that has the contact charging. I ordered one from them, so we'll see if the one I get is different.

    So I guess I'll keep using my Breffo Spiderpodium hanging from my AC vent until a decent car dock becomes available. Who are these knotheads at VZW who keep coming up with this crap??

    That's definitely not the same mount as shown in the video though...
