    I know the multimedia dock will be compatible with the extended battery, but is the car dock compatible? Does anyone have them so that they can verify?

    Don't believe it is available just yet, but the model number is HTC6400DTC and it can probably be pre-ordered from:

    Just from looking at the car dock, I can practically guarantee it will not support an extended battery.

    Sorry.

    I was going to say, that too.. it most likely wont fit the car dock as I have one.. and it's a tight fit as it is... unless the 1600mah battery will fit the same cover without needing a bigger back cover.. then it will but anything bigger most likely wont.

    The Seido 1600 will fit. I was referring to the "official" 2750.

    So.... is it reasonable to swap batteries before using the TB for navigation in the car dock?

    I hear the back is not easy to remove. Plus I suppose it requires turning the device off and then waiting for start up. That must also take a while.

    Is that something people see as reasonable for the average user, or do TB owners need to wait for a 3rd party accessory to fill in the gap?

    (I'm not a TB owner. Wanted one, but am waiting to see how the battery stuff shakes out, and hopefully what the Bionic looks like once more rumors hit.)
