I thought I would share these links for a high quality car mount that suits the Motorola Photon Q using an Otterbox Commuter Case.
To save anyone the trouble of the searching, trial and error I went through.
If you are to use the OEM Motorola Vehicle Dock, you will have to remove your Otterbox to place it in the Dock, this is a pain in the back side.
A normal hardcase should fit into the OEM Dock.
The Otterbox is just too thick with the extra bezel protection and the rubber port protector gets in the way.
The solution are the following links: Comes with 10 different mountings styles for windshields, desks, bikes etc. Prices range from $24.95 to $29.95

Also available from this ebay store:
If you would like to use the dock function of the OEM Dock and you already have one, pull it apart and glue it to the back of the Slip Grip.
Just setup "Smart Actions" or "Tasker" to launch the Car Mode when it connects to your cars bluetooth.
Here is a few screen shots of the setup I am using:
Car Home V3 (Ability to place any widget like the home screen)
Tasker (Plugins used - Media Utilities, Greenify, Car Mode ON, Car Mode OFF, Orientation Locker and Secure Settings)
SmartActions (Auto control for triggers in Tasker)
ON BLUETOOTH CONNECT
These screens become my Home Screen (using the HOME button)
Music from Spotify plays automatically
GPS starts automatically
Pressing BACK will take me to the Normal Home Screen (Which is in horizontal mode while Car Home is active)
ON BLUETOOTH DISCONNECT
All tasks are Greenified (Hibernated) and running returns to a low power consumption mode
I do not have to touch a thing, just plug my phone into the power.
