i ABSOULTELY AGREE.
Third-party case manufacturers could make a killing creating docks for the phones that are inside their products.
I have nothing more to offer here, I posted so I can keep track of this thread just in case someone comes up with any relevant info - like you guys, I've scoured the net and haven't come up with anything fruitful.
I'm currently just using a Scosch holder with the official Samsung charger, but it's cumbersome and a pain and causes unnecessary strain on the micro USB because of the way it has to mount in my truck.
Anyway, ideas are always welcome!
Otterbox Defender cases are awesome, I just wish that someone would create some type of dock that accommodates the case and has some functionality (charging, audio jack access, etc.)
