GSM Car dock Question: Is it possible to get the calls to feed through the audio of the car and not speaker phone? Overall I really like the dock...it is a little big and I had to reconfigure my set-up a bit but works great.

So I'm gonna guess that my phone with the diztronic case won't fit in the car dock. Has anyone been able to make it work without removing the phone from the case?

Absolutely not. The dock only fits the phone itself. And even just the phone itself is already snug.

This dock is meant for the GSM Galaxy Nexus.

But since CDMA and GSM models are ALMOST identical that's why it works.

Dude it took all of 2 mins for me to carve the volume rocker area to get the phone to sit right. Literally 2 minutes...

Ok Thanks for the advice. Sounds easy enough. You bought the one from the Google Play Store correct?

I have the Verizon Galaxy Nexus CDMA Version. Running 4.0.4. It is not rooted, unlocked etc. I have all the standard apps on it. No vehicle docking apps installed, using the standard battery.

Is there a version of the Vehicle dock yet that charges and has the audio port I don't have to use any type of tooling/cutting etc to custimize it to fit. I just want to buy one and have it work lol.

If not... the person that said he cut the plastic a little to make it fit, that doesn't seem to be to hard but I would prefer not to. Any come across one yet?
It really is a very minor mod and currently is the only option if you want a GNX dock that charges, etc.

I just ordered it: $69.09 with tax and two-day shipping (CA). That's 20% of the retail value of the phone, god damn.
You sir are a gentleman and a scholar. Thanks for the heads up.

Has anyone taking the pogo pin dock and made a custom mount for it? Like I love the dock but am not wild about the suction cup mount, I might disassemble it and replace the suction cup arm with a metal bracket that I can attach to my car but keep the wiring.

Let us know what you do. I was interested in changing the suction cup also just haven't figured out what to do yet.

I plan on cutting the arm off and fiberglassing/duramixing it in to the a-pillar or radio bezel. Done right and it will look factory. I'm waiting for the heat of summer to subside. Modifying it for a new phone once it's done is easy. Here's my previous work:
