    All,

    Have yet to even receive my phone (128 GB Galaxy S6 regular) but I am pondering the car dock situation. In particular, one with audio, as I understand that the MHL feature has been inexplicably removed from this latest device iteration. Any recommendations as to the best options?

    My car is a 2009 Toyota RAV4 and the Bluetooth doesn't support audio streaming (it's terrible quality anyway). However there is an AUX in port, I just hate to have to plug in a charging cable AND audio cable each and every time I get into my vehicle.

    Thanks!

    Why not just get a Qi dock, then you only have to plug in the audio.

    The Qi docks historically have never provided enough power via wireless charging to support running GPS + screen, phone calls and/or hotspot simultaneously.

    Well that's basically your option here if you only want one plug. No one makes a dedicated car dock yet.

    Actually I think I have already devised a workaround. It involves this:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...cUvbUpU4362114

    Which will receive the wireless audio streaming. Then all I have to do is use the same dock as before and it'll charge and stream. Only problem will be remembering to turn the device off as I exit the vehicle, which might get annoying.
