Default Car Dock Thread!

Hey guys, Lets make an official Car dock thread here for the Note 3.

I'm a current vzw Galaxy Nexus owner upgrading the to the Note 3 and tired of zero accessories available,
especially a *good* Car dock.


I really miss quality car docks, The Motorola Droid x car dock was the best ever and I havent seen anything close to it for
any device since. Part of what made it great was its spring loaded arm that popped open and closed, This made putting
phone in the dock was a 1 handed fast and east operation, and the dock didnt move.


Nobody wants to use 2 hands and plug wires in everytime they get into the car. Wireless charging built in would be a HUGE bonus too.

Lets see what starts becoming available and lets check them out here!

no no no plugging in wires!
Plugging wires in is going backwards..

Keeping my hopes up for a GOOD dock!

I'm using one of the Arkon ones for my note 2 atm, it should still work with the note 3 since the note 3 is supposed to be a bit smaller!

It's an awesome basic mount

iBolt looks great too, it too long for them to release before so I gave up getting it

I currently use proclip for my VZW Nexus, the nice thing is the phone part is replaceable so I can just get that part for the note 3 when available. It's pricy but rock solid.

Default xProDock is Note 3 compatible..

Thanks for starting a dedicated Note 3 thread. We here at iBOLT will participate and reply as necessary, great if we could have only one major thread for the car-dock category.

This week I am visiting the IFA show here in Berlin and after testing the Note 3 I can confirm that Samsung has not made any changes to the "DockMode" feature. It works perfect with our xProDock and the "DockMode" kicks in so that you can set an app like Dock'n Drive, CarHome Ultra, TuneIn or Slacker Radio as "default" home screen. The sound/music from apps can also come out through the microUSB when in dock mode and go the 3.5 mm aux-out that is included with the xPro.

The handset itself is very nice with the "stitched leather back" as you can see in the pictures. In the picture we have the AMPS plate attached which can be used instead of the suction cup if you want to attach to a vent mount from ProClip, a leather mount from KUDA or any pedestal mount type. The screen on the Note 3 is beautiful so indeed this will be an awesome Navigation device too. Let me know if there's any questions.

I am looking for a Qi car charger/holder. I am wondering if the ones designed for NOTE 2 will work with NOTE 3

This is what I've been using with my S3. It shows the Note 2 is compatible, so there's no reason the Note 3 shouldn't work.

The iBolt units look like they would do the job but pretty expensive for what I need it for. From my experience with car docks, I've gotten better sound quality by plugging the auxiliary cable directly into the phones auxiliary jack and bypassing the circuitry in the dock. I've tried all of those Car Home apps and don't like them. I want to use my phone the same way I always do while it is docked. Just give me a solid mount without all the bells and whistles and access to my headphone jack and USB charging ports without the circuitry in the dock.
