    I went to Best Buy tonight and saw it on the end cap with some other cases. This car dock is even better than the one for the EVO 4G that I had. It comes with the car dock, car charger, and cable for the charger. Pretty sweet deal for $59.99! Will post some pics of it tomorrow.

    It's made by HTC

    It's nice put I'm not sure it's $59 nice. I got mine at a BB as well. So weird how best buy had EVO 3D stuff in all different section. It's like a Easter Egg Hunt!

    The USB connects to the base of the suction cup area and not the cradle or arm.

    I wonder if the plug is long enough to penetrate an Otterbox defender case? HJ

    I tried it with the Seidio case on it, and you have to have a naked phone for it. I went with the iGrip, because it'll let me use my phone with a case on it (maybe even otterbox if I had it), I've got the best buy Platinum case on mine, and the iGrip works great with it (and it does the whole car panel thing).

    And that connects by suction?

    I assume it will accommodate the standard charging cable rather than the big coiled cord it looks like it has? I've got an inverter in my truck so I have both AC and DC power and I semi hide the core currently with a TS on the console. This one might work a little better than a cradle I have on the dash (for something else) so I ca reach it easier.

    I may have to go back my BB today and try again to find the scattered EVO fodder.

    $59 now, or $18 (non OEM) from Amazon in a month. I think I'll wait.

    it does not come with a coiled cord, the cord is straight... and the lighter plug has two USB inputs on it..
    It's similar to the one for the EVO 4G (same base and micro USB plug), but I think this one is a little nicer.

    I bought the car cradle on Saturday, and IMO, HTC has addressed ALL of the issues with the EVO 4G cradle:

    - Long, straight power cord included
    - Phone mic not covered by cradle
    - Dock mode is landscape-friendly (I know this is a function of the phone itself, but still...)
    - Phone can easily be inserted and removed from cradle with one hand

    I'm VERY happy with the purchase.

    I think this is the BEST mount I have ever tried

    Mountek, CD Car Mount for Mobile Phones, GPS, and Handheld Devices, including iPhone, iPhone4, Android, Blackberry, Garmin and more

    and you can use any case. Yes you do need a charger as well....

    Is that mounted in the CD Drive? If so, then no thanks for me.

    That is the "Car Panel" app that is included on the phone. It is not a navigation app by itself, just a screen that is helpful when you are in a car to have the major commands at your fingers. It is linked to the Google Navigation app that is bundled with Google Maps.

    FYI, the phone also includes the TeleNav GPS navigation, if you don't like Google Navigation.

    Off topic but.......

    That Nav widget allows you to choose which Navigation app you want to use. I screwed up and seleced Tel Nav which I like, but it does not pass the complete address info to Tel Nav. No matter what I say, it takes 1 word and considers it a city and I have to start over in Tel Nav anyway.

    Anyone know how to reset, or get to the settings to let it just use Google Nav.?

    I too went with the iGrip dock and it works very well. The only downside is it did not come with the adapter to charge in the car and needs to be purchased separately. Those adapters cost about 5 bucks or less through my work so it isn't a big deal for me.

    I have been having a hard time getting the dock orientated in portrait mode. I don't want to force anything. Is there a trick to this?

    Ok NM, it just takes a little effort to rotate into portrait.

    I just picked up the grip car dock today and I am very impressed with it. It is the first thing that I have been able to use a case with it. I have the Platinum case from BB and it fits well. I tried a Body Glove case on it and for some reason it does not. I heard the TPU cases work with it as well.
