Default Suggestions for a car and a desk dock?

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).
At some point as a professional developer I'm actually going to try writing something/working with/for Android... so far.. I've managed Hello World LOL.

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:
