Hi,

With the old HTC One M7, I had the original car dock, which was fine except it forced me to remove the case, and it also scratched the back of the phone a little if dust was trapped while sliding it. So I went with a universal one this time.

But I still want it to go to Car Mode once the power cable is plugged in. I know a resistor between pin 4-5 on the USB cable will probably do the trick, but I am looking to buy a ready made cable instead of cutting the insulation on an existing one to add the resistor then wrap it with a tape. It's ugly.

But I can't seem to find anyone selling those, does somebody have an idea where can I get one of those?

Saw this:

Seems over priced though.

Monoprice is your best friend. If you are in CA, standard shipping takes overnight. I always order the 6 ft cable so the kids can charge the Nexus 7 while using it.

that seems to just be a normal USB cable
he's looking for one that'll activate the car dock mode upon plug in.

Ibolt sells a dock that is compatible with the One M8, I use it myself, and I believe they offer charging cables as well. You can also buy the ibolt cable from Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00EOY...f=pd_aw_sims_9

Note: you will need a secondary microusb cable to connect this cable to the charger.
