Car Dock Mode
I apologize if this has already been asked.
Do you have to have an official TB car dock to get a car dock mode on the TB.
The reason I asked was that with my Droid X and Droid X2 I could use pretty much any car dock I liked, glue a small magnet in the back, and the X would automatically go into dock mode with all the safety features incorporated in that mode (like speakerphone answering).
I can't even find a dock mode feature to enable on the TB prior to putting it into my generic dock.
My problem is that I don't want to buy a new dock when the one I have holds the phone fine.
Also I don't like the idea of having to take off my silicone case and extended battery every time I want to use the phone in my car dock.

Re: Car Dock Mode
By the way, to the OP, if you click your search button and search for the "Car Panel" app, you can open it from there at anytime.

Re: Car Dock Mode
Just last month did a 1,500 mile round trip with Verizon car mount. Soild mount & car dock mode. Everything was very steady, USB charging & direct wired in thru cassette adapter w/Bose str. No Bluetooth in my ride, but sounded extremely good. Set volumes for each,pause @ anytime w/touch. Streaming Slacker radio (wow), Navigation, Weatherbug (storms) ,Calls & voice texting, with all notifications each over riding the other. Music muted when navigation spoke all over the cars system. Tbolt worked flawlessly and the most fun @ 80 MPH & 10 hr trip. Anyway soild mount on left side of windshield, slide in & clip in top holder & ride, stop fast removal (when exiting). Did exit the htc car mode each time I got in just for more function , but car mount keep tbolt in landscape for most everything I used. Only down side 3g most of the way except metro areas.
