I have had the Fascinate now for about 2 weeks and love it. First time on the android operating system and getting used to it. I have had windows mobile before.

The question i got is the Car Cradle Application on android 2.1 that comes on the phone is nice since me and the wife travel alot, but what gets me is that the navigation button in the middle of the screen goes to VZNavigator. I ave google maps installed and trying to find Nav & Go to install on it but i would like to change the button on the car cradle to go to google maps or another navigation app besides VZNavigator any idead how to do that.

hmm...so I did what you said and my car cradle app FC's whenever I select View Map, Voice Search, and Navigation. How did you get yours to work? I have uninstalled VZNav and bing.

The app still looks for vzw navigator and bing which is why it FC's. Take a CarDock.apk file out of a deodexed 2.1 ese81 build and move it to system/app/ with root explorer. This will give you google car dock. The only glitch I have found is it FC's when you click the contacts button but all the Google stuff works.

This app was posted in the vibrant section a while back. It's a samsung app that someone downloaded from the market. I installed google maps prior to installing this and then renamed cardock.apk in the system/apps folder. Install the file and you will another version of the car dock. It looks the same except it doesn't have the home button. The maps and navigation buttons link to google maps. The voice search opens google search. The contacts button opens contacts just like the original dock. The regular search button opens bing in the browser.

I installed the app you posted, but it looks nothing like your screenshot. Mine displays 6 basic boxes?

Not sure if you're following this story or not, but Google just released a standalone cardock.apk. It's supposedly in the market, but I haven't seen it yet. Hopefully it's not just for froyo.

It would seem as if the standalone apps they are rolling out will require at least 2.2 as a base. The same with the gmail app.
