I need a desktop dock and a car dock for my Evo 3D. Any suggestions for a good and cheap dock?

Is there a dock that you can put the phone in and it will charge the phone and also have an audio output on the dock? I don't know if this is possible but if there is one I would like to get it. That way I could connect (and leave connected) some speakers (or the car's aux input) to an audio output on the dock. So I could just drop the phone into the dock and it would charge plus the audio would already be hooked up.

If this isn't possible then I guess just a good desktop and car dock suggestion for cheap (that charge the phone) and will fit with a kickstand case.

Dunno about cheap, look around on pricing, but Kidigi do both a car dock and a desk dock :) (No idea about the audio bit).

I use the Seidio dock at work and at home. It doesn't have an audio out that I know of, but it works great with my case (also made by Seidio - I'm not sure if you'll have success with a non-Seidio case). If you don't have a case it will work fine, also.

Not sure about a car dock but I know there are several options out there.

How does this work ? Does it use the cigarette lighter as the support ?

Pretty cool, I might actually consider this for my car.

Thanks.

As for home, do you have a link for this Seidio dock? I too have a Seidio case and would like a dock that will work with it.

Sorry bit delayed but yeah it uses the cig lighter for support pretty good, I've got a really stiff head phone jack plugged in so it pulls it a bit and made it a bit loose so rapped some tape round the joint, good for the price.

The link isn't working.

I figured it out, it's:

Fitting Car Dock in Germany
Hey Guys,

as I am not allowed to post in the Developer Forum yet,
which slowly get's on my nerves (but I get the reasons for it),
I finally found something to post somewhere else that is not completely meaningless.

Does anybody know where to get one of those "good" car mounts in Germany???
I am looking for something like Kidigi Car Mount Cradle CM-HE3D, iGrip perfectFit Vehicle mount or the Seidio one.

I want something with USB pass-through so I just have to put the Evo in.
Even better if the Camera is not obscured.

The Kidigi one is my favorite. Unfortunately the official reseller cjdirect.de seems not to have it yet (i will call them next week).
Only other way for me would be form the US or HongKong which I wouldn't prefer for reasons like tax, delivery time and so on.
I found it on Amazon.fr for 25 Euro but they won't deliver to Germany.
Then I found it in another French shop where they want 41 Euro because of delivery.

The Seido Innotraveler is available on amazon.co.uk für 37 Euro but I don't like the looks so much.

The iGrip I coulnd't finde at all (in Europe).

So if anyone could help me out and suggest something I would really appreciate it. Else, I guess I will call cjdirect and maybe order one from Hong Kong or France.


Nearly forgot, of course i know about the official HTC car kit but I don't like that either, and for 40 Euro I would rather pay 1 Euro more for Kidigi one or go to Hong Kong. Same with the one from Brodit. Just too expensive.

Thanks
